ANSI/IICRC S600 Carpet Installation
ANSI/IICRC S600 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Carpet Installation
The S600 Standard and Reference Guide was approved by ANSI on April 09, 2015. Unresolved objectors were given the opportunity to appeal the Standard at the ANSI Board of Standards Review. Shaw Industries appealed ANSI’s approval of the S600, and won the initial appeal, but IICRC won the final appeal. ANSI has re-instated its approval for S600, and WFCA is expected to publish the Standard in 2017.
Six carpet manufacturers (Mohawk Industries, Shaw Industries, Textile Rubber & Chemical Co., Inc., The Dixie Group, Inc., Universal Fibers, Inc., and Milliken & Company) have submitted requests to ANSI for withdrawal for cause of the ANSI approval of ANSI/IICRC S600. IICRC is working to respond to these requests.
The S600 Standard and Reference Guide covers both Residential and Commercial Carpet Installations. This industry consensus document gives specific guidance for the proper, recommended procedures for installing various carpet products in different types of installations.
