DALTON, Ga. -- Kaleen Rugs & Broadloom is introducing Hook & Beam, a new division of high-quality machine-made broadloom carpeting. Unlike the company's existing Pure Life and Kaleen Broadloom lines, Hook & Beam is not handmade and can be produced at a much faster rate.

The new Hook & Beam line, which also offers a merchandising unit, features three different types of construction: Jaccard Loomed, Circular Knit, and Wilton Loomed. Kaleen has produced an informational video detailing the Hook & Beam range and its merchandising options. Samples of the new collections will be available soon.

"Hook and Beam was launched because we wanted to create something unique and new in the industry," company COO Monty Rathi told RugNews.com. "From texture to construction Hook and Beam offers designer style that we are known for in a high-end, machine-made product. We also wanted to expand our offering to attract new types of markets such as hospitality, designer to trade and expand our current custom rugs businesses.”
