DALTON, GA) – C&A Floorcoverings’ new style, Gridworks, proves that
two really are better than one. Introduced during the recent NeoCon World’s
Trade Fair, Gridworks received exceptional reviews from leading design professionals
from dozens of U.S.-based and international firms that appreciate the marriage
of leading-edge technology with an all-new tufting technology.
Known in the industry
as a company with environmental expertise and ingenuity, Gridworks is an example
of C&A’s forward-thinking technological innovations and advancements.

the design to be overlaid with two distinct patterns in the same substrate,
creating a depth and density of design commonly found in fine textile fabrics.
The style also
boasts the new technology’s ability to render finer, more refined design
details, resulting from a sophisticated pattern mechanism. This device allows
for a nearly limitless number of pile height variables with precise control.
