1. Introduction and Application of Carpet Tiles:
As the name suggests, Carpet Tiles are carpets with a regular, specific square shape and size. Nowadays, Carpet Tiles are widely used in various areas with high foot traffic, such as chairman’s offices, manager’s offices, VIP reception rooms, conference rooms, hallways, malls, office buildings, schools, hospitals, and exhibition halls.

2. Classification of Carpet Tiles:
Based on patterns, Carpet Tiles can be divided into patterned Carpet Tiles and solid-colored Carpet Tiles. From the surface material, they can be categorized as nylon Carpet Tiles and polypropylene Carpet Tiles. According to the backing material, there are soft-backed Carpet Tiles, PVC-backed Carpet Tiles, and asphalt-backed Carpet Tiles.

3. Characteristics of Various carpet tiles Materials:

Nylon Carpet Tiles are relatively soft with good resilience, suitable for areas with dense foot traffic. After cleaning, the carpet surface looks new, and their lifespan is about five to ten years. Some can pass B1-level fire resistance tests. For instance, many colleagues have used Yorkshire nylon Carpet Tiles for four years, and they are still in good condition. On the other hand, polypropylene carpets have weaker resilience, might feel rough to the touch, are less absorbent, and have a shorter usage period of three to five years. They are cheaper compared to nylon carpets and come in a wide variety of patterns, suitable for clients who require frequent replacements.

4. Installation Methods of Carpet Tiles:
One method is adhesive-free installation, which is strong and cost-effective but not environmentally friendly and less transportable. Another method involves water-based adhesive installation, which is eco-friendly but more costly, with moderate strength and less convenient adhesive transportation. The third method is adhesive-backed installation, which is environmentally friendly and odorless, as well as convenient for transportation. Each installation method has its own drawbacks.

5. How to Judge the Quality of Carpet Tiles:
The pile weight of Carpet Tiles is usually around 500-900 grams per square meter. Higher density and thicker pile result in higher weight. However, visual inspection can sometimes be misleading as carpets with the same pile weight can still vary in quality.

6. Characteristics of Carpet Tiles:

50×50 Carpet Tiles are easy to install and have minimal wastage. In corners, one square can be cut to fit, unlike full carpets which can be harder to adjust and can result in wastage.
The fiber construction of the carpet surface offers noise reduction and energy-saving properties, improving efficiency.
Easy replacement and convenient transportation. Dirty squares can be replaced individually, saving money compared to replacing the entire carpet.
The benefits of Carpet Tiles include decoration, sound absorption, sound insulation, safety, dust prevention, and thermal insulation.
