Swiss company Fabromont AG is the manufacturer of the first-rate and unique textile floor covering Kugelgarn®, which has been successful in many areas of commercial building over the past decades. Kugelgarn® is characterised by exceptional design and high quality and can be seamlessly integrated into any architectural concept. Thanks to freedom of direction and cut resistance, the design possibilities are endless and can be implemented individually, creating a seamless look. This is how Kugelgarn® creates security and ambience.
The manufacturing technique of Kugelgarn® is special: instead of being spun into one-dimensional yarns (threads) as is the case with carpets, the fibres are spun into spherical three-dimensional yarns. The fibre balls are then brought into the surface and consolidated into a highly durable textile covering.
Kugelgarn® is available as metre goods on rolls as well as modular goods and tiles. The modules are produced without a heavy backing and are available in various formats. The Quickstep® stair covering and acoustic covering complete the range.
Kugelgarn® is used particularly frequently in the office and education sector (schools, universities) - for example in the European Central Bank in Frankfurt/Germany or the modern Schindler Campus in Ebikon/Switzerland. Thanks to their sound-absorbing properties, the floor coverings contribute to a positive working atmosphere, especially in open-space offices. Other areas of application are retirement homes and cultural venues.
As a founding member of öbu (Swiss Association for Sustainable Business), which was established in 1989, Fabromont committed itself to the topic of sustainability at a very early stage and bears the label Swiss Made - resource-saving production takes place directly at the Schmitten (FR) site in Switzerland and all raw materials are sourced exclusively from the European economic area. All Kugelgarn® products also have TÜV PROFICERT and GuT certification as well as Ecological Product Declarations (EPDs) and contribute to the fulfilment of DGNB and LEED criteria. This also means that they meet all requirements to the highest degree, even in health matters.
Kugelgarn® by Fabromont combines aesthetics, economy and sustainability.
