Office Carpet Tiles- types to opt for

office carpet tiles are small swatches of broadloom carpets that can be installed and arranged in a variety of inventive ways. Carpet tiles, which are also referred to as “modular carpets” and “carpet squares,” are typically square and come in a variety of square sizes, including 48×48, 50×50, 60×60, and 96×96 cm, as well as planks, which are long rectangular shapes. Carpet tiles, on the other hand, are available from some manufacturers in a variety of inventive shapes.

Hardback backing, closed-cell cushion backing, and open-cell cushion backing are the most widely used backing options for carpet tiles. Since carpet tiles typically come pre-attached with carpet backing, they can frequently be installed directly onto the subfloor, making installation quick and simple.

Types of Office Carpet Tiles

  • Carpet tile construction

There are three main categories of office carpet tiles to choose from when considering carpet construction: carpets tufted, woven, or punched with a needle Even though the vast majority of carpet tiles are tufted, it is helpful to familiarize oneself with all of the available options to make a more informed decision. We’ll go over the materials carpet tiles are made of below.

  • Tufted carpets

Tufted carpets make up 95% of all commercial carpet tiles on the market. This is because tufted carpets are produced quickly, cost less, and come in a wide range of designs. While tufted carpets can be used for most projects, they might not be the best choice if you’re more concerned about durability and quality.

  • Woven carpets

Carpets made on a loom—also known as woven carpets—were the only option until the 1950s. Waxed carpets are still popular today due to their superior quality and durability, particularly when made of natural materials, even though advancements in production machinery and synthetic materials have opened up other options. For more expensive projects, woven carpets are an excellent option.

  • Needle punched carpets

Carpets punched with needles are colorfast, dry quickly, and resistant to fading and sunlight. Despite their practicality, they lack style and texture versatility. Carpets punched with needles are great for things like entry mats, but they shouldn’t be used for anything else.

 

  • Carpet tile styles

Styles for carpet tiles are another thing to think about when designing your carpet tile solution. We’ll go over some of the most common designs and types of carpet tiles below: cut pile, cut and loop pile, and cut pile.

  • Loop pile

A carpet with a loop pile is created by looping yarns to create a soft, smooth appearance. Higher and lower loops can be combined in loop pile solutions to play with texture and pattern.

  • Cut pile

By cutting yarn loops to form an upright pile, cut pile carpets are made. Cut pile carpets often appear darker than loop pile carpets made of the same type of yarn, giving them a more formal or luxurious appearance.
