BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO CARPET TILE UK BUYING

There is a world of difference between a cheaply made carpet tile and a good commercial carpet tile that’s selling at a cheap price.

Knowing the difference will save you loads of time, money and hassle.

There are 4 things you need to ask yourself to make sure you get it right.

1. Is my floor going to see lots of traffic?
2. Is my floor going to get dirty?
3. Will I be using castor chairs?
​4. Do I need the tiles to look good for a few years?

If your answers are all 'no' - then you'll be fine to go ahead and buy the cheapest tiles you can find because any tile will do a great job for you.

But if any of your answers are ‘yes’, then only a nylon carpet tile will be up to the job. If you try and save money by buying a cheaper polypropylene tile, all but the very heaviest ones will flatten and look worn in no time and you will have wasted your money.
Have a look at some of our stock ranges of carpet tiles here. We have thousands in stock for commercial, domestic and retail installations.

We also have thousands of recycled carpet tiles and new clearance carpet tiles in stock and more arriving every day.
So why not have a look and let us know what we can do to help you find the right tile with a good product rating.

"Will this carpet tile do the job?"

To find out you’ll have to check the specification and look at how it’s made. The terms 'contract rated' and 'heavy contract' are generally used to describe carpet tiles that are suitable for a commercial environment rather than domestic retail, but this doesn't tell the whole story - here's what to look for.

Pile Weight

Take a look at the pile weight. That is a universal comparison and the heavier the pile, the more durable the tile will be.

Solution Dyed

Take a look at how the carpet tile uk is dyed. A ‘solution-dyed’ tile is better than ‘space-dyed’ because a solution dyed fibre is coloured all the way through, much like a carrot, rather than just on the outside of the fibre, like a cucumber.

Length of Guarantee

This is a great indication of the manufacturer’s confidence in their carpet tiles. Obviously the longer the guarantee the longer the carpet tile will look good on the floor.

Castor Chair Symbol

If you’re going to use castor chairs, don’t buy a tile that doesn’t have a ‘castor chair symbol’. Your tiles will be chewed up in no time if you don’t check this out and for peace of mind all the nylon tiles we stock are castor chair rated. Polypropylene ones tend not to be, unless they have a very heavy pile weight.

Always a very important question and one we get asked the most: “Is there a cheaper alternative?”

We’ll happily try and find you one. We have clearance and recycled stock coming in every day ready for immediate delivery, so just get in touch and we’ll do our very best.
It’ll be nice to hear from you.

In the meantime though, we wish you ‘Happy Carpet Tile Hunting!’
