The latest innovation in carpet tiles and planks, the Sorona® Naturals Collection brings a unique solution combining sustainability, effortless cleaning and extra heavy duty performance.

Created with Sorona®, a renewably sourced biopolymer made from 37% plant based materials, this collection is designed for creating beautiful, healthy and high performance spaces.

The unique Sorona® biopolymer is also inherently impervious to liquids. This built-in stain resistance feature does not wear or wash off and prevents spills from penetrating fibres and turning into stains.

Sustainable
The highly innovative and renewably sourced biopolymer, Sorona®, developed by DuPont, contains 37% annually renewable plant based ingredients. Producing Sorona® uses 30% less energy and releases 63% fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to the production of nylon 6. And compared to nylon 6,6 Sorona® production uses 40% less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 56% This contributes to Godfrey Hirst’s goal of minimising or eliminating all adverse impacts our activities and products may have on the environment.
Inherent Stain Protection
The Sorona Naturals Collection is designed to clean effortlessly for life. Reduce time and cost by simply cleaning the most stubborn^ commercial spills with just water. The science behind this unique biopolymer lies within the molecular structure, which is inherently impervious to liquids. This prevents spills from penetrating the fibres and turning into stains. Unlike traditional topical treatments, Sorona® ‘for life’ technology doesn’t wash or wear off over time. ^Acid, oil or wax based spills may require professional hot water extraction.
Anti-Microbial Properties
Sorona® absorbs 16 times less moisture than nylon 6,6 fibre, providing excellent anti-microbial properties where the ability of bacteria to breed is exceptionally reduced. Independently lab tested, the Sorona® Naturals Collection is proven to significantly reduce organisms as per the below table.
Australian Made
Drawing on 150 years of local manufacturing experience, the Sorona® Naturals Collection of carpet tiles and planks are 100% Australian Made. From extruding the biopolymer into yarn, tufting the carpet and making tiles, and distributing to the commercial market, every step is done from our state-of-the-art Australian facilities. And with expert Account Managers and after sales service, you can be assured your commercial project is a good hands.
Performance
All products in the Sorona® Naturals Collection have been independently tested by the Carpet Institute of Australia, achieving a Level 4 grading under the Environmental Certification Scheme. As the highest grading, this indicated the lowest level of VOC’s, ensuring Green Star compliance accreditation and a maximum 5 credit points on the Mat-2 Flooring Calculator. Rated Contract Extra Heavy Duty under the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme, the Sorona® Naturals Collection offer superior resilience or ‘bounce back’, making them suitable for any commercial environment.
Colourfast
Each product is exceptionally colourfast as a result of the colour being dyed into the actual fibre during the yarn making process, rather than being applied topically afterwards. This ensures that colour is locked into the fibre and does not wear or wash off, even when harsh chemicals like bleach are spilt onto the carpet.
Fibre Memory
Compared to other polymers used to make carpet, the Sorona® biopolymer features a ‘kinked’ molecular structure. This means that the fibre is able to bounce back into shape after being compressed by foot traffic.
Mix & Match
The ranges in the Sorona® Naturals Collection can be used to produce bespoke interiors. Use one colour for a smart, understated look or mix and match the colours and designs to create break-out spaces, interesting corridors, or focused work stations. From borders to herringbone installations, add interest to a commercial space with a design outside the box.
