CARPET TILES – CARPET TILE FLOOR COVERINGS – CAIRNS
Carpet Tiles are an affordable and practical flooring solution that has been used in offices and businesses for many decades. Quality fabric tiles or planks are a durable and affordable solution for businesses, home office or even that repurposed garage. Solution dyed nylon and polypropylene materials are available to select from, with polypropylene being the most affordable option. Solution dyed nylon construction offers superior longevity. Commercial accommodation such as hotels and apartment buildings usually have carpet tiles installed in common area’s such as hallways and elevators, as they reduce the echo from rolling suitcases and trolleys. Most quality manufacturers have fire rating certificates available for their carpet tiles and planks.

Why Carpet Tiles?
Carpet Tiles are a great medium for boardrooms, reception area’s, hallways rooms and consulting rooms. As modular carpets readily absorbs noise, this them an ideal surface in multi storey buildings, minimising noise in floors below. As noise transmission is undesirable when engaging in communications, both face to face and on the telephone, eliminating excess noise is a prime consideration when selecting your flooring. Modular flooring is available with additional acoustic backing where exacting codes apply.
Benefits of Carpet Tiles?
Carpet tiles offers a host of benefits in our businesses, namely:
– Carpet tiles usually come in a 500 x 500mm format, making the installation more cost effective than using broadloom carpet which come in a 3,.6 or 4 metre wide format.
– Modular Tiles & Planks are available in around several different fibres, so a fibre to suit each application is available, from wool, polypropylene and solution dyed nylon.
– Textile flooring is much softer underfoot than timber, ceramic tiles, vinyl, Vinyl Planks or Hybrid Flooring.
– Budget friendly, carpet tiles are the winner as floor preparation is usually not required. This saves considerably on cost of flooring.
Can I install Carpet Tiles myself?
Absolutely. Modular Carpets are ideally suited to those wishing to do the job themselves. Minimal tools are required, and usually only a sharp Stanley knife and a paint roller are required. A “pressure sensitive” adhesive is used to hold the tiles in place horizontally. Pressure sensitive installation allows for easy tile removal and replacement, should a tile be damaged or stained.
Choosing the right Carpet Tile for your business.
Your environment plays a big part in producing the best result for your money. Ensure the Carpet that you choose is suited to the conditions most likely to be encountered in your business. While it is usually preferable to use natural fibres in our day to day lives, tiles made from natural fibres will not stay looking fresh for long when subjected to continual traffic.
The price of modular tiles is dependent on both the quality and the fibre that it is made of. Polypropylene is the entry level solution, followed by Solution Dyed Nylon which will generally outlast Polypropylene by a factor of three.
When cared for, installed and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, our Carpet Tile Flooring will provide you with great looks and durability.
