Carpet Tiles

What is Carpet Tile?

  • Carpet tiles are manufactured as square, rectangular, and in some cases hexagonal shaped pieces; instead of the usual 12-15’ width carpet roll.
  • Carpet tiles typically have backings that are either hard or soft cushioned, with or without adhesive.

What is Carpet Tile for?

  • Insulation for feet on a cold tile or concrete floor.
  • Ease of installation. The main advantage of using carpet tiles is that a specific tile or tiles can be easily removed and replaced with new ones when damaged or worn-down.
  • Reducing the noise from walking, especially useful on upper floors, and in apartment buildings.
  • Carpet tile, due to its durability, works and wears extremely well in high-traffic commercial applications.
