Acme Binding was established in 1969 in the garage of the original owner. Although it changed hands several times and moved into factory premises, it never developed to any great extent until David Supple brought his commercial acumen to bear twenty years ago.
The Acme Binding Company can bind or overlock any shape, size or type of carpet offcut, rug, mat or carpet sample. We do speed binding, overlocking or can bind the edges of carpet and rugs with wide tape to give the latest, fashionable finish. Most of the overlocking is done using wool thread and we have probably 1000 colours in stock so there is one to go with every carpet. Alternatively, we can do speed binding in which the edges are covered with tape similar to bias binding.
Recently, we have had more and more requests for finishing the edges with wide tape and that gives a really good effect, particularly on large pieces of carpet or rugs. This new form of edging uses strips cotton tape which forms a five centimetre wide strip around to completely encase the raw edge. This is proving popular as a fashionable way to finish better quality carpets and rugs. This cotton tape comes in 18 fashionable colours.
Acme Binding also produce sample books and cards for the major manufacturers to give out to the retailers; they can cut and mitre carpet runners and pieces so that the edge pattern runs all around the piece and can add on or remove fringes from rugs to suit personal tastes. We can also attach foam or felt backing to carpets to give better wear characteristics and make them more slip resistant, or even attach a special 'sticky' backing such as Rug Lock.
Acme Binding has a large range of new carpet pieces and remnants in a wide variety of colours and textures. We can produce large family room rugs or arrange to have those carpets layed in your home or office.
We also maintain a large stock of "ready to go" carpet mats and carpet rugs in different sizes.
