AKO - Kolckmann: Safety outdoors
The company AKO Kolckmann has developed a non-slip, weather-resistant covering called AKO Unico that is specially made for use outdoors in the home and semi-public areas. Designed for a temperature range of -25°C up to 60°C, the product ensures sure-footed walking on terraces, balconies and entrance areas year-round.
“Made in Germany” quality: this long-established family firm is known as a specialist in carpet and tablecloth underlays and safety and sports mats, and manufactures its products exclusively in the town of Alfdorf in the the German state of Baden-Württemberg. The AKO Unico covering is made of PES/glass yarn fabric with a surface of PVC granulate, and meets class R13 slip resistance standards and class Bfl-S1 fire protection standards.
This outdoor covering product comes in five trendy colours – stone, basalt, graphite, sand and lava – and is produced in 10m rolls that are 1.20 cm wide and easily cut to fit any desired length. The company also sells angled stair mats with dimensions of 30 x 73 cm. A wooden display holding 12 rolls is available for retailers with dimensions of 120 x 250 cm.
AKO Kolckmann: Colourful Crawling and Play Mat
Carpet underlay specialist AKO Kolckmann is expanding its range to include non-slip mats for babies, made in Germany. The original crawling and play mats are available in various standard sizes; special sizes are also possible. The play mat is baby-safe in several respects: the Oekotex certificate class 1 ("baby standard") fulfils particularly strict requirements and certifies that the product is resistant to saliva.
Heitmann Felle: Cosy and versatile lamb and cow skins
The trend towards natural materials in the living area continues. Natural animal skins convey timeless elegance, security and a feel-good atmosphere, also on the floor: like, for example, the cuddly soft lambskin rugs by Heitmann Felle – "made from first-class quality skins". The fur specialist from the Lüneburg Heath celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2020.
AKO - Kolckmann: Plasticiser-free, with improved slip protection
Sometimes life pulls the rug out from under your feet. Ako Kolckmann specializes in making sure that this won't happen: The broad anti-slip matting programme ensures that carpets stay safely in place, no waves form and nobody stumbles.
The family business's latest development is called Ako Prima, a glass yarn fabric coated with acrylic foam (registered utility patent). Especially on all smooth floors made of wood, tiles, laminate, stone or vinyl, the mats offer a considerably improved slip protection.
The underlay is manufactured in Germany and, according to the company, is free of plasticizers, odourless and consists of harmless materials. It can also be used under short-pile carpets, is washable and easy to cut.
Heymat: Designer mats with colour gradients
Rusty orange like rock formations in the morning sun, green like the forest or blue like the sea and fjords: in its new DIS collection, design floor mat supplier Heymat shows the colours of Norwegian nature. Again, this collection has been created in cooperation with the design studio Vera & Kyte (Bergen, Norway). The gentle colour gradients from soft to rich tones are intended to reflect the special light conditions at dawn. DIS is available in three sizes and, like all Heymat design mats, is made of recycled materials.
