All of us here at Carpet Tile Wholesale are so excited about carpet tiles that we want to shout out and tell you why.
We know all about piles, tufts, fibres, gauges and dyes and if you are in the market for carpet tiles you need to know this stuff as well.
The excitement about our carpet tiles comes when we sell them to our customers and we know that they will be very happy and tell all their contacts, colleagues, friends and family about them and us.
But…..to be happy with your tiles, you need to choose the right tiles and here’s what to look out for!
You can choose a tile because it’s cheap and ‘looks and feels’ about right, keep your fingers crossed and hope you’ve made the right choice or you can find out what the tile is made of, how it’s constructed and how it’s dyed. Then you’ll be able to compare any tile on a like-for-like basis and be confident that the price you eventually pay offers genuinely great value and you’re not being ripped off.
There are only 4 things you need to ask yourself to make sure you get it right.
1. Where will you be laying your tiles?
2. How long do you need them to last?
3. Is the environment going to get dirty?
4. Will you be using castor chairs on your tiles?
Domestic or Commercial Light/General/Heavy Contract Use
Choose between the ratings and look for the description that best suits your situation and the amount of footfall likely to be passing through.
Sometimes tiles are referred to as carpet squares. This probably refers to the introduction of tiles and was use to differentiate them from regular carpeting.
Polypropylene or Nylon Fibre
If you need your tiles to look good for more than a few months and not go ‘flat’, then choose a tile made from nylon. Nylon fibre has a memory, meaning the fibre can spring back into place when pressure is removed whereas a polypropylene fibre does not.
Pile Weight and Tuft Density
These are both important as the heavier the pile weight and the more tufts per square meter, the more durable the tile will be and the longer it will last and still look good.
How the Fibre is Dyed
There are two ways a tile fibre can be dyed, solution dyed or space dyed. Solution dyed fibres are coloured all the way through the yarn (like a carrot), whereas a space dyed fibre only has the colour on the outside of the yarn (like a cucumber). This means that if you need to clean your tiles often, you will rub away the colour of a space dyed tile. So choose a solution dyed tile if you want to be able to clean your tiles vigorously.
Using Castor Chairs
Castor chairs eat carpet tiles! So if you are going to be using castor chairs on your new tiles, make sure they have the ‘castor chair’ symbol.
By taking a few minutes to ‘Check the Spec’ you’ll be thrilled with the carpet tiles you choose. We’d love to help you get it right, so just get in touch to get the ball rolling and happy carpet tiling!
