Carpet Tile Benefits


What are carpet tiles?

Carpet tiles are a type of flooring that can be used as an alternative to the more commonly used broadloom carpet. They provide all the warmth and underfoot comfort you’d expect from carpet, but are available in practical module sizes. Carpet tiles come in a selection of sizes, patterns and materials – but all Interface carpet tiles are modular and work together.

The benefits of carpet tiles

They’re carbon neutral
We’ve been on our sustainability mission for over a quarter of a century, consistently working towards reducing our environmental impact. When you specify flooring from Interface, you’re selecting products that are carbon neutral across their full product lifecycle.

They’re durable
Manufactured to heavy contract quality, our carpet tiles are tough enough to handle office and public use.

They’re versatile
Individual tiles can be swapped with ease if damaged, or if you simply want a change. They’re easy to mix and match too – so you can be creative and work tile-by-tile. You can even use different installation methods to achieve your chosen look.

They can improve indoor air quality
Some carpet tiles, such as those from our Conscient Collection, improve indoor air quality.

They offer superior acoustics
Certain carpet tile backings provide great sound absorption, so you can design rooms to focus in. We have different backings to suit different projects.

Low total cost of ownership
Together, all of these benefits make carpet tiles excellent value for money.

The technical benefits

They can be used with LVT
Available in either 50x50 cm squares or skinny 25x100 cm planks, our LVT module sizes are the same as our carpet tiles.

Some colours are light-reflecting
Certain carpet tile colours have a high light reflecting value (LRV). This means that the tiles reflect more light, so less artificial light is needed to illuminate them.

Simple installation
Carpet tiles are typically much simpler and quicker to install than broadloom. And, TacTiles® make installation easy, clean, and sustainable. Made from PET with virtually zero VOCs, they connect horizontally with backing that ‘hugs’ the floor, so there’s no need for glue.

An environmentally friendly option

Less waste
Carpet tile installation produces less waste than broadloom, and as single tiles can be replaced, entire carpets don’t need to be ripped up and discarded when damage occurs.

Industry-leading carbon footprint
We have a history of pursuing sustainability, and have reduced the cradle-to-gate carbon footprint of our carpet tiles by 74% since 1996.

Getting more from PVB
When the glass from car windscreens is recycled, the PVB from it generally isn’t given a second life – but we have partnered with companies in the glass recycling industry to change this, and use it in the production of our carpet tile components.
