Just as people are interested in how their carpet feels, they are even more interested in how it looks. The fact is, running on a carpet runner is a lot faster than running on a carpet. You’ll also be amazed at how the carpet runner looks after it has been washed.
Like most carpet runners, the indoor carpet runner that I own has some sort of track system in it for me to run on. I also have an “acoustic” carpet runner that I run on while I’m sitting in my chair or at home. The acoustics in these three carpet runners are the best of both worlds; the carpet is smooth but soft, and the runners actually run in the fabric.
I’m not a runner so these three carpet runners are the only ones I have. But because I’ve tried so many different carpet runners, I have come to the conclusion that they all work the same way. I’ve had them in my home for a year now and I haven’t had a single problem, except my carpet runners do have an annoying tendency to have a lot of fraying and the runners that are still usable are much too small to be worth the expense.
Thats why outdoor runners are so much better for those with carpet. And because carpet doesn’t come with the same fraying problem, outdoor carpet runners are much more resilient than indoor runners. Most indoor runners are made by laying down a piece of carpet and then lining it with a stiff plastic or rubber. Outdoor runners are much simpler to make. You just lay down a strip of sheet stock and cut it into strips.
Here’s the thing about the carpet runners. The ones made for the floor are the worst. The ones made for the carpet are the best. The ones made for the indoor runners can be put together in a matter of minutes, but they still have frayed edges and frayed edges that can tear you up if you trip on them.
They take a lot of skill to make, so they are not cheap. We have seen several different styles of carpet runners, and our favorite is the one developed by a Swiss company called TK. It came in a sleek purple-and-black color and is made of a lightweight and sturdy rubber with a small pocket on the bottom. It is extremely durable and can be used in a variety of environments.
Our tester went from a brand new outdoor carpet runner to one that had been on our carpet for three months. It was still frayed, but it was easier to maintain, and it didn’t catch on the corners so easily.
We had one of our carpet runners that had been on our carpet for three months and it still was frayed. It was easier to clean, but it was still frayed.
The idea behind this product is that it is very durable. When a carpet runner takes a direct hit from a bolt or nails, it can cause damage. Its not just the carpet that is damaged, but the floor, walls, and ceiling as well. The pocket on the bottom of the carpet runner keeps the frayed edges together while the pocket on the top keeps the whole runner from tearing. This product can be used indoors, outdoors, and even in your garage.
We were intrigued at how durable this carpet runner was, and the fact that we could use it in our garage. There are a few things that would have to be done to the outside of the garage prior to using it, but we didn’t want to be caught out in case something needed to be done to the inside.
