On August 14, 2009, SmartStrand took on a 2800 pound challenge…his name is Ricko and he lives at the Birmingham Zoo. 2800 pounds of black rhino, living, eating and – well you know – on SmartStrand for 14 days. Typically Ricko is a fan of hard surface and not carpet, but it seems like he might be changing his tune. I’ve been in this industry for nearly 17 years and I have never seen a carpeting put to a test like this.
