Why use Carpet Tiles?
Carpet tiles offer a wide range of colours, patterns and textures. Many types of carpet tiles can also be over printed to offer customised designs & colours, providing an opportunity to create unique & stunning flooring alternatives.

durable flooring solution. Carpet tiles offer greater design opportunity because it is far easier with a modular system to create effects, even in small projects! Borders, accents
and highlights can be simply created by inserting a tile of a different colour, even in a different shape. Carpet tiles are ideal for irregular shaped rooms or buildings. And with minimal waste, the use of carpet tiles is now seen as a
sensible choice as they are an environmentally friendly flooring solution.
Carpet Tiles for the Residential Home

Life Cycle Costs
The versatility of carpet tiles offer long-term cost benefits because in areas of extreme traffic, they can be designed
as almost ‘sacrificial’ for regular replacement, providing a greater cost efficiency for the entire facility. Carpet is usually replaced not because it has worn out, but more
because it has lost its “contemporary look”. This can be more easily preserved through the use of tiles.
Carpet Tiles for the Commercial Environment
Through the use of different yarn systems carpet tiles are extremely durable to even the harshest environments. Carpet tiles can be installed in nursing homes, child care centres, hospitals & schools.
Lower Waste Component
Generally the typical waste factor in a tile installation is not more than 4%. With broadloom carpets this
can be as high as 12—14%. Also there are other savings with the installation of carpet tiles, for example a heavily partitioned or occupied workspace offers great savings in a tile replacement situation.
The savings are also made in:
• Furniture removal to allow for the laying of broadloom carpet
• Dismantling of electrical and network cabling
• Less disruption to the work space
• Transport into site (often 12’ wide carpet rolls present problems with lifts etc)
• Maintenance stocks.
