Commercial Carpet Tiles: A Selection of Case Studies
Commercial carpet tiles are perfect for installation in office, educational, leisure and retail settings. Their robustness and durability mean they can cope with the demands of high traffic environments, and the flexible design options make them ideal for open plan areas. The fact that they're easy to maintain is also of great benefit in these settings. This article looks at a selection of case studies in which carpet tiles have been used to create optimum results.

Use in education settings

In school settings, this kind of flooring is ideal. it reduces the risk of slips and provides cushioning in the event of falls. It also has excellent acoustic qualities, limiting the spread of noise. In addition, bespoke designs can be created, zoning off areas and creating attractive environments. In further educational use, carpet tiles have often been utilised for student residences. An example of this is the Mason Student Residences at the University of Birmingham, which used burmatex, a UK manufacturer in 2008. It was important to create a domestic look for the self contained student flats, but to couple this with durability and longevity. The use of commercial carpet tiles meant that should any of the flooring become stained or damaged an easy and inexpensive tile replacement could be made.

Use in commercial and office environments

Commercial carpet tiles are perfect for office environments. Again their durability and simple replacement option means that they can cope with areas of high footfall. They also have anti-slip and noise absorption properties, ideal for this type of setting. Interface carpet tiles were used for an installation at Easyjet's base at Luton airport, where an old aircraft hangar was transformed into office space. As a budget airline, cost is very important to Easyjet. The use of a batchless tile without a repeat pattern meant that long term should any tile replacements need to be made, this could be done very easily and cheaply, without impacting on the overall look of the flooring. As an airline and the focus on carbon emissions becoming an increasing concern, also of interest to Easyjet was Interface's environmental credentials as climate neutral, meaning that any carbon emissions made during the lifecycle of the product are offset.

Interface commercial carpet tiles were also used in the new Environment Agency national office in Bristol. Due to the nature of the organisation, the environmental credentials of the type of flooring used were of great significance. It was important to create a modern and attractive environment, whilst keeping sustainability at the core of the installation. The result was a highly practical yet eye-catching workspace, taking colour inspiration from nature.

This article provides just a few examples of the excellent application of commercial carpet tiles. Offering both practicality and extensive design options, they are ideal for numerous settings and can be used to create striking bespoke flooring installations.
