A Carpet for all Seasons – even the English Summer!

During the year we are asked for many different outdoor solutions and most recently this has included a carpet. The Royal Borough of Kensington organises a summer season of operas within Holland Park. Opera Holland Park is a summer Opera Company which produces an annual season of opera performances staged under a temporary canopy in Kensington’s Holland Park. This year’s events feature 5 operas including Puccini’s famous Madame Butterfly as well as a classic film season from The Luna Cinema Company. Each of these summer events attract several thousand visitors to the grandstand and general seating areas. EFS were asked to provide and install a range of carpets for the grandstands, stairs and outdoor decking areas. Recognising the traits of a typical English summer we were able to supply and fit carpets for both the indoor and outdoor areas. We selected our Podium flat velour carpet for over 1,200m² of indoor grandstands, stairways and associated areas. For the tricky part of the outdoor decking area we supplied and laid over 600m² of EFS Club stud backed carpet , This specifically designed product has a built in stud design which allows rainwater to simply drain away providing a constant and comfortable safe flooring. As a new project for EPS, we were delighted to provide assistance and make use of some of our special carpets. With recent English Summers we know that our Club carpet will look good no matter whatever the weather!
