Where to use carpet tiles?

Comprehensive choice of carpet tiles for all commercial applications

Flooring for education and commercial

Carpet tiles are ideal for all types of educational and commercial properties and have various aesthetic and performance benefits depending on the constructions of the tile. The comprehensive options include loop pile, cut and loop pile, random lay batchless, cut pile and electrostatically flocked.

Loop pile
Carpet tiles with a standard loop pile construction are designed to maintain their good looks in the most demanding heavy traffic areas of buildings such as office or school corridors, reception and general circulation areas. Textured loop pile tiles offer distinctive in-built texture and contemporary styling coupled with a robust and durable construction.

Textured loop & Random Lay, Batchless
A random-lay tile is cleverly designed so that it may be laid in any direction to produce a totally individual installation reducing installation waste to less than 2%. Different production consignments of ‘batchless’ tiles can be used together in an installation without the usual risk of visible batch variation. These tiles are ideal for large open plan areas where desks and castor chairs are common.

Cut & loop pile
Cut and loop pile tiles feature a clever hybrid construction that offers all the robustness of a conventional loop pile product but with the superior aesthetics and more luxurious feel of a cut pile carpet tile. Hardwearing enough for general circulation areas, but with an added feel of luxury and creative design.

Electrostatically flocked
Electrostatic flocking is a unique method of manufacture where ‘charged’ nylon fibres are bonded into an adhesive backing to create a very dense (over 70 million nylon fibres per m²) and durable product. This makes Flotex a perfect option for very busy locations, such as, schools, counter areas, kiosks and call centres as it is able to withstand extreme wear and castor chair traffic. Flotex has also been awarded Allergy UK’s Seal of Approval.

Carpet tiles - innovation for sustainability

Process and material innovation are at the heart of our drive to deliver more sustainable products.

How it’s made
• By challenging the way tufted carpet tiles are made, our UK produced Tessera tiles now boast at least 57% recycled content and all Tessera products meet the indoor air quality requirements of CDPH Standard Method V1.2, widely known as CA Section 01350.
• Investment in an extruder has reduced our bitumen usage by 56% and enabled us to increase the levels of our recycled filler by 30%.
• We’re 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 carpet tiles. We even have carpet tiles made with up to 100% ECONYL® regenerated yarn.
• All tufted Tessera carpet tiles are manufactured using 100% renewable energy (electricity & biogas).
• All Tessera carpet tiles have received the GUT label. This means all Tessera ranges have passed the latest and severe testing on chemicals and emissions to ensure consumer safety.

How it performs
• 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 the appearance.
• Following Green Design principles, our innovative random-lay carpet tiles reduce fitting waste to less than 2%.
• Any clean Tessera fitting waste can be collected via our Back to the Floor scheme to avoid landfill.
• We work with recycling companies to help customers clean, reuse and recycle old carpet tiles in the UK

Social accountability
We care for the people that touch our business, from employees to suppliers. That’s why all our UK manufacturing facilities and most of our sites in Europe are certified to SA8000®. The SA8000 Standard is one of the world’s preeminent social standards which aims to protect workers along each step of the supply chain and we are the only UK flooring company to have achieved this certification. Forbo was also involved in the development of BES 6002 (BRE’s Ethical Labour Sourcing Standard) and became the 1st flooring company certified to this standard.
