Versatile Commercial Carpet TilesMulti-purpose carpet tiles for trade and industry
Specifying a versatile commercial carpet tile
The majority of the public regards carpet tiles as a structural item - something that is initially fitted at the beginning of its lifetime and a few years later when it is ready for an exchange. One of the greatest benefits of carpet tiles, however, is their versatility: it is possible to raise and lower tiles in different areas, modify the appearance of your premises and renew the look without a complete overhaul.
That gives them additional flexibility over other floor covering materials - but not all commercial carpet tiles are equivalent. By specifying carpet tiles for customers, you want to be sure that the chosen floor tile is versatile enough to satisfy the company's needs - now and for many years to come.
We share five criteria to consider when choosing commercial carpets to help you select carpet tiles that are versatile and adapt to the convenient and esthetic needs of your customers. One of the most important considerations when choosing versatile carpet tiles is: Will they last long? When you focus on the variety of your selected product, it is likely that you are making long-term plans and considering how to reuse your selected carpet tiles in the years to come.
Therefore, the selection of carpet tiles that are long lived and long lived is a must. First and foremost, when it comes to the choice of long-lasting carpet tiles, the kind of backing used is important. Cushioned carpet tiles can last 40-50% longer than rigid floor tiles because the pad will protect the fibres from abrasion and abrasion so they retain their look longer.

To make carpet tiles truly versatile, your customers will be able to use them in multiple places throughout their lives. In order to achieve this, you should choose carpet tiles that can be laid without glue - for example, Milliken's TractionBack product has a one-of-a-kind high abrasion glue that safely fixes the tiles without the need for extra glue.
In addition to the simplification and rationalisation of the first laying, this means that it is simple to reuse the carpet tiles elsewhere if your customer wants to remodel his premises after a few years. The tiles can be raised and repositioned at their new position without loosening the glue from the subfloor.
When you are considering a versatile and reusable floor covering design it is important that you choose a carpet with classic aesthetics. When you choose a design or colour that is the hotest trendy this year, there is a risk that it will look quite quickly obsolete as fashions shift and finally drop out of favour.
That can make it more difficult for your customer to reuse it in the near term, even in another part of the build. Identifying areas where you think it makes sense to switch carpet tiles in a few years may help your customers. Show your customers, for example, how their carpet can be reused in an existing cubicle.
It will allow you to visualise the changes from the start and help you appreciate the variety of carpet tiles you specify. In order to prolong the service lives of the carpet tiles you choose, it is imperative that they are cared for well. As soon as your carpet is laid, the most important thing you can do to prolong the lifespan of your carpet is to clean and maintain it.
In order to minimise lasting dirt and carpet damages, the best way is to react to dirt and dirt as soon as it occurs. While this will take more pro-activity from your service staff, it will help keep your carpet tiles looking as new as possible.
