Step

With its graphic design of parallel repeated ribs, Step is a modern interpretation of a classic twill rendered in chenille yarn. The yarn-dyed tonal colours create a subtle and sophisticated diagonal stripe on a textile that has a soft and gentle handle. Step is offered in a wide palette of twenty-three beautiful shades.

Durability {{site.selectedConfiguration.martindale || "40,000 Martindale"}}

The Martindale method is the most widely used method for testing upholsteries for abrasion resistance. During testing the fabric is rubbed against a standard wool textile with a given weight-load applied. Running at intervals of 5.000 circular rubbing motions, the test continues until two threads are worn.

Minimum requirements
Private and low traffic public areas: 10.000 – 15.000 rubs
High traffic private and office spaces: 15.000 – 25.000 rubs
Public spaces and transportation: 25.000 – 45.000 rubs

Pilling 5 (ISO 1-5)

Pilling is the term used to indicate whether small balls of fibres, known as pills, form on the surface of the fabric due to wear.  

It is evaluated on a scale from 5 (best) to 1 (worst).

LightFastness {{site.selectedConfiguration.lightFastness}}

Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.

The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

Fire tests BS 5852 crib 5 with treatment • EN 1021-1/2

There are differing requirements concerning the flame-retardancy of textiles dependent on the area of application, country or even region. Our textiles pass the majority of international standards and are also tested for a selection of regional requirements.
