Chilewich is a fabric design and manufacturing company that offers durable, versatile, and elegant flooring and wallpapers for senior living communities. Their products are a result of 20 years of continuous innovation to maximize performance and minimize environmental impact. Joe Sultan, CEO of Chilewich prides himself on creating sustainable products extremely well-suited for senior living environments. Chilewich’s numerous flooring and wallpaper options help to provide a safe, easy, and long-lasting living space for seniors.
Their flooring is unique because unlike carpet, it is designed so wheelchairs and walkers can roll right over the surface with no friction whatsoever. The padded backing system still provides support and a soft feel without compromising mobility, which has proven to be extremely successful within senior living facilities. Chilewich flooring also has a waterproof layer that assures long-lasting flooring and easy cleanups.
Chilewich also provides wall coverings in senior living communities as well. The wall products are crafted from a woven textile and classified as wall protection, assuring the highest level of durability. The value of Chilewich products has a lifetime value that brings both style and peace of mind to senior living communities. Typically, their floorings and wall protections are used in the hallways and common areas such as dining, fitness, and multipurpose rooms.
Chilewich products are green label certified and are tested every three months to assure they are in compliance with all safety certifications. The use of vegetable-based compounds and 100% recycled polyester felt backing to create a sustainable way to meet so many criteria for functionality. Chilewich offers installation, education, maintenance, and lifetime value with all of their floorings and wall coverings. For Sultan and the Chilewich team, “it is most important to keep a healthy building,” and there is a shared peace of mind amongst residents, families, and staff when they can be certain they are in a positive and healthy environment. In the senior living industry, ease and safety are a top priority, and Chilewich products are a sustainable way to style any senior living community
