CRI Launches New Components of Carpet Installation Standards

Dalton, GA, February 16, 2017—The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) recently launched instructional videos and a Spanish translation component to support its 104/105 installation standards for commercial and residential carpet.

These updates will enable CRI to more effectively reach carpet installers and ultimately enhance customer satisfaction.

Proper carpet installation is critical to the overall quality and life of carpet. Carpet installers need updated guidance to ensure customers fully benefit from industry innovation and receive high quality installation. CRI’s 104/105 carpet installation standards were updated in 2015 to address new carpet products, materials and technologies in the market and have been downloaded more than 40,000 times in addition to hundreds of hard copy orders.

The CRI 104/105 carpet installation standards are available as a free download in PDF and multiple mobile formats on the CRI website at
