Where to use carpet tiles?

Comprehensive choice of carpet tiles for all commercial applications

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.
