Carpet tiles, also known as modular carpets or square carpets, are squares cut from wall to wall rolls which can be fitted together to make up a carpet. Carpet tiles are generally available in following sizes: 48×48, 50×50, 60×60 and 96×96 cm.
Some carpet tile providers also offer other shapes and sizes like hexagons and triangles with which the installation, however, does increase in complexity and cost. Carpet tiles are justly popular as a flooring option for commercial environments, such as bars and restaurants, and other relatively uncomplicated projects.
Carpet tiles can be used as an alternative to wall to wall carpet in almost any situation not requiring unique customization and offer easy installation and maintenance, longevity and the same qualities as wall to wall for creating a healthy, comfortable indoor environment. Here are four important factors to keep in mind when considering carpet tiles for your next project.
Affordable, practical and versatile carpet tiles can be laid to create specific flooring designs using patterns and colours in a wide variety of commercial environments. Acoustic carpet tiles provide superior sound absorption. This makes them perfect for quiet public spaces such as libraries, art galleries and museums. The ability to easily lift and replace individual tiles means carpet tiles are ideal for schools, retail, aged care, hospitality and medical facilities.
