Aircraft Carpet Styles
Loop vs Cut

There are three pile styles the carpet can take: loop, cut, and cut & loop. Pile refers to the thickness of the carpet.

Loop pile is a tufted or woven carpet pile surface comprised of uncut loops. Loop pile can be level, textured, or multilevel. A carpet made entirely in the loop style often requires less maintenance than in the cut pile style.

Cut pile starts as a loop pile carpet until the loops are “cut” during the tufting process. This creates a textured look and feel, and the cut pile is softer than loop pile carpets.

Cut pile carpets are easy to clean, though they may require additional maintenance, at least initially. Cut pile carpets will “shed” fibers for up to 6 months and need to be vacuumed after each flight. If not properly vacuumed after each flight, the yarn will start matting, which cannot be repaired. A suction-only vacuum is recommended (a vacuum with a beater bar will propagate more shedding).

Cut & Loop combines both forms. These carpets shed less than cut, making them easier to maintain, and are as durable as loop. Pattern and color combinations are practically limitless.

Serging vs Binding

Two different edge styles help to prevent the edges of your new carpet from fraying: serging and binding.

Serging is when a sturdy yarn is wrapped around the edge of the carpet. The yarn may be the same color as the carpet. Generally, serging is more aesthetically pleasing than binding and is usually sought after for carpets on business jets. However, serged edges are less durable than bound edges because if the yarn wears, it may unravel.

Binding is when a piece of fabric or other material is wrapped around the edge of the carpet. It is generally more durable than serged edges and commonly used on aircraft with more foot traffic, such as charter flights or regional and commercial aircraft. Bound edges are also used in areas where snagging may occur. For instance, if the cabin seats can be moved on a track, the carpet edge alongside the track should be bound to protect the carpet.
