There are two primary issues in commercial carpet installation and design- Cost and appearance. Both can be extremely expensive, and the results, sad to say, can be pretty mediocre. The experience of buying an expensive carpet and then having to pay for customization as well as maintenance and cleaning can be a pretty thankless one, and very frustrating.
The trouble is the nature of most commercial carpets. Broadloom is incredibly expensive, and very difficult to maintain over the product life of a carpet, which can be up to 10 years. Add to this the basic costs of repairs and cleaning, and you’ve got a sort of office administration equivalent of a black hole, consuming time and money.
The new generation of carpets- Cheap, tough, and cost-efficient
Fortunately for long-suffering building managers, there’s a new option on the market, a revolutionary new type of commercial carpet which is in a much higher league to the old style high maintenance carpets of the past. The new type of carpet is a new range of carpet tiles, which don’t have underlay, are extremely durable, and fully customizable thanks to new manufacturing technology.
These carpet tiles are truly different. They’re not stitched together but glued, creating strong solid surfaces instead of the natural weak points in carpets created by seams. They’re also extremely easy to replace, taking seconds to remove and replace as distinct from the major production issues related to replacing broadloom carpets. They’re long-life, low or no maintenance flooring, and they’re becoming extremely popular in very demanding environments like airports, public spaces, and other very cost-conscious places in which carpet represents a high upfront cost.
Custom carpets to order- Digital carpet design with a few clicks
The new carpet tiles are the result of a complete revamp of carpet manufacturing technology, concepts and methods. These are truly “digital” carpets. They come in countless different designs, all of which can be made to order. The technology includes visualization software which allows people to pretty much design their own custom carpets using basic parameters. It’s also possible to create new designs in consultation with the manufacturers.
The result is a ready-made custom design or in fact multiple designs, if you need different layouts and motifs for different parts of your office. This is the new best practice in commercial interiors, getting high quality custom designs at significantly lower costs.
In terms of product life, these carpet tiles can achieve extraordinary savings on everything from the initial installation, basic maintenance and office cleaning to replacement. The net costs of all aspects of carpeting are reduced from the start, saving huge amounts of money over large areas and perhaps equally importantly reducing the “headache value” of managing commercial carpeting to zero.
