Introducing Godfrey Hirst Designer Jet®. The first in Australia, Designer Jet® is world class print technology which opens an infinite array of colours and bespoke designs you would never have thought possible in a carpet.
Designer Jet® is at the forefront of high resolution print systems based on valve technology. It works by injecting dye into the pile of the carpet face cloth. The functional principle is similar to an office ink jet printer. Jets are arranged in groups (256/colour), mounted on a print-head which traverses the carpet.
The Designer Jet® “colour kitchen” consists of 16 vats of colour. These colours are then pressurized (1-3 bar) and supplied directly to the jets which are computer electromagnetically opened and closed up to 400 times per second. The ink heads inject dye with surgical precision deep into the face of the pile without any machine parts touching the fabric.
This piece of engineering brilliance delivers the deepest colour penetration and precision print definition, up to 76.2 DPI and 9 million pixels/sqm and because there is no need for colour changes in production from order to order there is virtually no down time, no waste and no wasted water consumption.
These features mean the Designer Jet® is extremely environmentally friendly and all products achieve Green Star Level 4 ECS (100% maximum points). Designer Jet® is 100% PVC FREE.
Designer Jet® is an excellent cost saving alternative to traditional woven carpets. Imagine having the same esthetic appeal at less than ½ the cost? Ideal in all market segments including hotel, hospitality, retail, public space, education, health and aged care.
Designer Jet® is available in both modular tile and 2 metre wide sheet goods with a choice of cut, loop, textured loop and tip sheared style face cloth.
