Vacuuming carpet - The Carpet Spot

The Australian Carpet Classification Scheme (ACCS) is a product certification scheme administered by the Carpet Institute of Australia. Established in 1985, the ACCS is one of the most comprehensive 'all fibre' carpet grading schemes in the world.

Carpets are classified under the ACCS according to their performance characteristics. The Australian carpet classification scheme is determined using technical data supplied by manufacturers and results from testing conducted by independent (NATA or equivalent) laboratories. An expert panel assesses the test results and samples of carpet provided by the manufacturer to determine a 'star' classification for that particular carpet, which relates to the performance characteristics of the carpet. The more stars the higher the ACCS grading.

Carpets are classified according to suitability for use in residential and contract installations and in different walking 'traffic' conditions described as light, medium, heavy and extra heavy. In determining the ACCS end-use classification, the overriding criterion is the appearance retention properties of the carpet. Carpets submitted to the ACCS must also meet minimum standards for a range of construction and performance properties before they will be graded. Strong correlations exist between the classifications awarded by the ACCS, the Woolmark / Woolmark Blend, and Wools of New Zealand carpet grading schemes.
