About carpet tiles

Modularity with carpet tiles

Modularity
Today’s modern office environments with open office systems are designed for flexibility to accommodate frequent layout changes. A modular floor can be quickly adapted to new requirements thereby reducing the cost of reorganisation.

Where carpet tiles are installed, telephone, electrical and other underfloor systems remain easily accessible for these changes to be made.

Colour co-ordinated for maximum design flexibility
• Increased speed of installation
• Installation wastage is reduced
• Damaged or soiled tiles can be replaced
• Wear rotation to extend flooring lifespan
• Renovation with minimal disruption
• Compatibility with access systems

With all this flexibility, we’re sure that whatever the specification, whatever the budget, you’ll find exactly what you need in our carpet tile portfolio.

Sustainability

Closing the loop

Our Tessera and Westbond carpet tiles are not only synonymous with quality, we are always looking for ways to improve our production processes and product constructions to make our tiles more sustainable.

50% Recycled content
By challenging the way tufted carpet tiles are made, our UK-produced Tessera tiles now boast over 50% recycled content.

Reduced tile waste by 80%
We use innovative ultrasonic blades to cut our carpet tiles, which reduces tile waste by 80% compared to the standard technique. And our new extruder creates a closed loop process, ensuring that the little waste we generate is recycled back into the product.

Reduced amount of virgin materials
We are reducing the amount of virgin materials we use. For example, instead of throwing away yarn ends, we rewind them and tuft them into our Tessera range. We even have several ranges made with up to 100% ECONYL® regenerated yarn.

Westbond Natural with up to 74% recycled content
For those looking for something closer to nature, our Westbond Natural range is made from the undyed wool of seven different UK sheep breeds and has up to 74% recycled content in its backing.

Quick and easy to clean
Our carpet tiles are quick and easy to clean using a system called Dry Fusion, which uses heat, a little water and natural, organic cleaners. So you can use less water and fewer chemicals without compromising appearance.

Reduced fitting waste
Following Green Design principles, our innovative random-lay carpet tiles reduce fitting waste to less than 2%. And any Tessera fitting waste can be collected for recycling at our plant near Preston, Lancashire, where it is processed back into new carpet tiles.

Carpet recycling UK
As a founder member of Carpet recycling UK, we are also working to ensure that at the end of life our carpet tiles can be recycled or reused.

LRV & NCS codes

LRV & NCS codes

In architecture, Light Reflectance Value (LRV), is a measure of the percentage of visible and usable light that is reflected from a surface when illuminated by a light source. The LRV can be linked to a number of decisions on which colour can be chosen. The approximate LRV of a colour indicates the amount of visible light that a colour will reflect. Black has a light reflectance value of 0% and absorbs all light. White has a light reflectance value of 100% and keeps a building light and cool. It also links to the use of electricity where lighter colours need less lighting which is a direct saving for the environment. All Forbo products carry a light reflection value, which can be found on the collection pages with the description of each item.

NCS colour coding describes the colour of any material. With numeric colour codes, so called NCS Notations, such as NCS S 1080-Y70R, any colour can be described precisely. NCS has defined 1950 standardised colours at every tenth step of the colour space to represent the entire colour space. Each notation's colour sample is visually identical to any other colour sample of the same notation, whether it is a standardised colour or a colour in between the 1950 standard colours. This way you can find matching flooring colours with other coloured items in a room.


Light reflection (LRV) and NCS colour codes are available for all items of this collection. They can be downloaded in our document download center.

The 'Natural Colour System', NCS has been developped in order to indentify the colour value, its intensity and hue for a product. By using the NCS maesurement system colours and colour groups can be identified and matched regardless of the material that has been used. In this way colour coordinates for differnt aspects of the interior of a building can be determined. All Forbo products carry a NCS code, which can be found on the collection pages with the description of each item.
