What are carpet tiles?

Carpet tiles are a resilient product that is available in a variety of pile constructions, textures, colours, and designs. Carpet tiles are designed specifically for aesthetic and performance benefits which is what makes them a superior choice for many businesses.

This multipurpose flooring solution not only offers comfort but convenience too. The need for underlays is eliminated thanks to the tile’s self-adhesive and pre-backed surface which can be installed directly onto the subfloor.

Carpet tiles are commonly in square cuts; however, they are available in alternate shapes such as hexagons and triangles. These more complex shapes will increase the cost of the product and the intricacy of the installation.

What location are carpet tiles best suited for?

Carpet tiles are often used in commercial and public buildings such as airports, offices, schools and libraries. As they are very durable, they make the perfect flooring choice for any location that experiences high footfall.
