Top 10 Reasons to Choose Carpet Tile for Commercial Use


  1. Carpet tiles like carpet, provides a warmer more insulated floor than a hard surface.
     
  2. Carpet tile is acoustically superior due to its dense face construction and four-layer condensed backing system.
     
  3. The condensed vinyl backing of carpet tile is superior to all other carpet backing systems. It is moisture resistant and does not allow bacteria or spills to penetrate the tile. It is totally bonded to the back of the carpet so it cannot be delaminated by either foot or rolled traffic. This backing system prevents the edges or seams from raveling.
     
  4. Unlike rolled goods, carpet tiles are easily shipped, stored, and moved around within a facility. Portability is one of its strong features.
     
  5. Carpet tiles can easily be installed by non-expert installers.
     
  6. In an occupied interior, the furniture does not have to be moved out. Heavy workstations files, pianos, and pool tables, can be jacked up or slid as the tile is being installed.
     
  7. Carpet tiles can be easily replaced (if you order a few extra when placing your order) when they become soiled or worn. You can also rate worn or soiled tiles to a less obvious spot within the room to extend the life of your carpet tiles. Also,you can easily remove a soiled tile and clean it at a utility sink and replace it after it has dried.
     
  8. Although the entire carpet industry recommends chair pads under roll chair casters, carpet tile performs the best without them and can be replaced after excessive use.
     
  9. Carpet tiles allow for creativity. They can be quarter-turned to create a pattern. You can make a border with a different color pattern. You can rearrange the tiles to give a new feel to the room. Ask about our pre cut borders and area rug tile packages.
  10. A study on different floors like terrazo, vinyl tile & carpet tile found carpet tile is the preferred environmental stressor because of sound reduction & reduced discomfort from reflected glare on the floors. 1a

How Laminate Floors are Made

Laminate Flooring can be made to resemble hardwood, ceramic and stone.  Most Laminate floors consist of four components bonded together:

1) The top layer is a durable wear layer, providing protection and stain resistance.  These layers often contain aluminum oxide, as well as melamine resin that creates durability.

2) A decorative layer also known as aprint film is ad-hered on top of the core board giving the floor its hardwood or tile look.  This is a printed high-definition photo-reproduction of a wood grain, natural stone or ceramic tile pattern.


3) The next layer is a core board,generally made from high-density fiberboard or particle board, which may also contain melamine plastic layer that lends dimensional stability to the planks and also helps guard against moisture from the sub floor.




The Process

Generally, it begins with the assembly of the four layers of raw materials in large sheets.  This typically takes place on a production line, where each layer is stacked on top of each other.

Once the four layers have been stacked, they are ready for pressing.  The stacks are pressed at high temperatures reaching 400 degrees, with up to 600 pounds per square inch of pressure for 20 to 30 seconds.

If the laminate is designed to have a textured surface, the press has specialized plates that imprint the textured pattern onto the sheets, creating more natural looking visual.

After a cooling process, the boards are cut into planks and the moved on to be profiled.  Multiple profiling saws create the tongue and groove edges on the sides of the planks that enable the floor to lock together.  The finished planks then go through a quality inspection and are checked for color, texture, finish, size and correct interlocking capabilities.

At Americarpet we carry products from many of the best and largest laminate companies in America.  We also carry commercial laminate flooring from Alloc , Armstrong and Abet Laminati from Italy.  This laminate flooring comes with a warranty from the manufacturer for commercial use .
