DALTON, GA — Mohawk''s SmartStrand Zoo Challenge has come to an end and it''s time to discover who came out on top, according to a press release.
After taking abuse from six African elephants, three camels and a black rhino, SmartStrand carpet with DuPont Sorona continues to prove victorious with its durability and resiliency against the toughest competitors, the release noted.
For more than two weeks, a combined total of 50,000 pounds of wild animals have done their absolute worst to Mohawk''s SmartStrand; this revolutionary carpet stood up to everything the animals could dish out, including romping around, the constant tracking in of mud and dirt and doing what they do best, the release stated.
"Knowing these are truly wild animals, I thought there was no way this carpet could handle the wear and tear they would subject it to," said Sean Greene deputy director of education and interpretation at the Dallas Zoo.
"It''s amazing to see the carpet bounce back to its original state knowing what it''s been put against for the past two weeks," Greene added.
