Smart Flooring for 21st Century Learning Environments


Milliken-Ontera’s extensive standard design collections offer a comprehensive choice of hundreds of ‘off-the-shelf’ carpet designs, textures and colours. Where a more unique approach is required, our Millitron® carpet design technology, with high-resolution digital colour placement, can be used to create stunning custom designs.

This proprietary technology can create complex pattern effects and colour combinations, with fast lead times and one box minimum quantities - not possible with any other carpet manufacturing technology. ​
