MARINE TUFT

Marine Tuft is the world’s largest exporter of all weather, indoor and outdoor tufted teak deck look carpet suited for installation in all weather applications. Our carpet is designed to endure the harshest weather conditions including salt water and direct sunlight in extreme hot & cold climates anywhere in the world. We have tested all our carpets to a high marine standard (test results can be viewed on our certifications page). Marine Tuft carpet uses the highest grade UV resisters, making it resistant to mold, mildew, chlorine and staining, including fish blood and red wine when attended to promptly. Marine Tuft’s unique HydraBak technology allows water to pass through and drain away with gravity/camber and evaporate with sun and wind exposure. The tufted design ensures it is soft underfoot without the harsh feel you find with most other outdoor carpets. The best part is – it will stay soft underfoot. The tufted pile gives the carpet greater strength, better durability, easier cleaning maintenance and helps avoid snagging caused by fishing hooks and lures.

Marine Tuft was founded in 2005 after the owners identified a shortcoming in what was deemed to be marine carpet. Much of what was then available was nothing better than household carpet which quickly failed once exposed to the harsh boating environment. A lot of resources and time has been devoted to sourcing the specialized materials required to enable the manufacture of such a high-quality product.

Despite having been deceived by some raw material suppliers unable to meet the high standards demanded, Marine Tuft has now perfected its supplier list and retains some of the finest fibre producers in the world. Having done the hard yards, Marine Tuft now manufactures one of the world’s best quality tufted marine indoor and outdoor carpet range. 100% Synthetic yarns with the highest resistance to UV are utilized and the finished product is backed with an adhesive especially formulated by one of Australia’s leading polymer producers, ensuring the carpet is made to resist the extraordinary effects of exposure to water, sun, salt and chlorine.

The finished product is now available in most boating countries around the world, including the USA.

We will continually strive to improve our product, thus ensuring that your purchase of our Marine Tuft carpet for all indoor and outdoor applications will bring total satisfaction and lasting enjoyment.
