Hardwoods serve an enormous range of applications, including buildings, furniture, flooring, utensils, etc. In Australia where softwood is scarce, hardwood may be the wood of choice for structural components of constructions. Hardwoods are generally far more resistant to decay than softwoods when used for exterior work. However, s...

...end users. With growing attention to the safety of flooring surfaces, more designers and owners are looking to installed resilient stair treads as a safer walking surface in stair wells as opposed to carpet, paint, plain wood or plain concrete steps. Resilient stair treads are rubber or vinyl, most often used in commercial applications, although residential use of stair treads is another a...

carpeting
...Carpet is a soft floor covering made of bound carpet fibers or stapled fibers. Carpeting refers to wall-to-wall coverage, whereas a rug is simply used to cover a space. This type of flooring is typically used indoors and can be used in both high and low traffic areas. It typically lasts for 15-18 years before it needs to be replaced. The quality of a carpet is usually measured in face weight, o...
carpet
...A carpet is a textile floor covering typically consisting of an upper layer of pile attached to a backing. The pile was traditionally made from wool, but since the 20th century, synthetic fibers such as polypropylene, nylon or polyester are often used, as these fibers are less expensive than wool. The pile usually consists of twisted tufts that are typically heat-treated to maintain their struc...
tack strip
...Tack strip (US) (also known as gripper rod (UK), carpet gripper, Smoothedge (Can), tackless strip, gripper strip and gripper edge) is a thin piece of wood, between 1 to 2 metres (3.3 to 6.6 ft) long and about 3 centimetres (1.2 in) wide, studded with hundreds of sharp nails or tacks used in the installation of carpet. They are nailed, tack side up, to the perimeter of the area being ca...
stair rod
...A stair rod, also commonly referred to as a carpet rod, is an ornamental decorative hardware item used to hold carpeting in place on steps.

Wool is relatively expensive and consequently it only compr...
polyester
...The polyester known as "PET" (polyethylene terephthalate) is used in carpet manufacturing in both spun and filament constructions. After the price of raw materials for many types of carpet rose in the early 2000s, polyester became more competitive.

nylon carpet
...Due to nylon's excellent wear-resistance, it is widely used in carpeting.
