Carpet specialist Kalogridis International of Dallas has just launched a new line of bulkhead tapestries available in a variety of colors and with three-dimensional surface texture. The new surface was developed by company president George Kalogridis and research and development designer LiChing Tsai.
The tapestry was created to fill a gap between hard panels that were limited in design and had no real sound absorption qualities but were cheap and relatively inexpensive and soft carpet tapestries that absorbed sound and were more attractive but costlier and heavier.
The result is a fire-resistant, ultra-lightweight covering with a three-dimensional bulkhead covering that can be applied in several ways, “the most practical of which is pressure-sensitive tape.” It will come in a variety of materials, colors and patterns or a customer may prefer a more personalized one-off design.
According to Kalogridis, several customers have already expressed an interest in the new material to cover the lower sidewalls “and we think we can do it.”
