A pianocarpet is not a normal carpet but is equipped with a heatshield. Placing only this heatshield under your piano does not look nice and therefore we use a carpet to incorporate this heatshield.
A pianocarpet large protects the case and the soundboard of the piano as well as the keybed and the legs against direct rising warm air from your underfloor heating. Rising warm air extracts moisture from your piano with the consequence that the structural gluing dries out and lets loose. The solution: Place a Pianocarpet underneath your piano!
Pianocarpet Large Standard has a size of 151 x 58 cm and is suitable for all pianos with an outside measurement of maximum 151 x 58 cm.
The outside size is measured on the bottom of the piano.
When the relative humidity in the surroundings of your piano is to low, use a pianocarpet always in combination with a damping system like for instance a humidity tube.
Additional information; What relative humidity is good for your piano? When the pointer of the hygrometer is between 45-60%. Is the pointer lower than 45% the relative humidity is to low and a damping system can be the solution.

You can place your piano directly on the carpet without using casters cups. Therefore, casters cups are not included when ordering a pianocarpet. If you like to place your piano on casters cups it is possible and you can order the cups at extra costs.
It is possible that the pianocarpet has a deviation from the stated size of max 2%
