alto tránsito comercial
Explanation:
Hola otra vez.
Según las referencia que siguen, "contract" se refiere a comercial, por oposición a uso doméstico. "heavy" y "extra heavy" es el caudal de tránsito que debe soportar el piso.

Heavy contract carpet includes some of the best cloth available. This is recommended for any area in the house, (excluding wet areas) from lounges to entrances. These carpets are usually, though not always, made from a high percentage of wool. Wool being the most resilient of natural fibres, mixed with a percentage of synthetic (man made) materials, combine to produce an extremely hard-wearing carpet

The crucial parameters in the specification of a carpet for a contract location are:

contacto fuerte / contacto extra fuerte


Explanation:
I think there is a slight typing error and it is contact and not contract, for the latter makes no sense. I hope this helps. Good luck!
