Carpet Tile Materials

Commercial carpet tiles and modular flooring systems are made from an incredibly wide range of materials which each offer different benefits to the user such as offering the best value or best quality.

Shopping for products made out of materials you are not familiar with is always difficult and carpet tiles are available in a wide range. Below are a few of the most common materials used manufacturing quality modular flooring for commercial use.

Aquafil synthetic fibres for modular flooring

Manufactured to offer exceptional resilience and resistance to wear, Aquafil is a polyamide similar to polyester designed specifically for carpet tiles with features like easy stain removal, anti-static, low dust and dirt penetration, almost 100 colours and improved colour fastness in some carpet tiles.

Bulked continuous filament nylon carpet tiles

BCF nylon, which is also available as a recycled material for a greener carpet tile, is made up of long filaments of nylon plied together to form a fibre; a big benefit of this design is that BCF fibres do not shed after installation. Nylon is a hugely popular carpet tile material which is resilient, easy to clean, stain and abrasion resistant and probably the strongest synthetic fibre you can find.

Meraklon modular flooring fibre

The first polyolefin fibre to be developed, a feat which won the 1963 Nobel Prize for chemistry, Meraklon is still used today for carpet tiling thanks to it’s cost effective price to durability ratio.

DuPont Antron Excel carpet pile fibre

Available as a new product or as recycled content, Antron Excel was developed for the toughest commercial environments which is tough, soil resistant and guaranteed to stay perfectly coloured no matter what it goes through, and that means very easy carpet tile replacement if you ever need it.

Recycled polyurethane cushion backed carpet tiles

Cushion backing puts more of a spring into any carpet tiles surface, helping alleviate strain from long hours of walking or standing; ideal in environments such as retail stores, office reception areas or healthcare.

These key materials can easily be treated, coated or manufactured to enhance features such as anti-static, anti-microbial or stain resistance.
