COMMERCIAL CARPET

BROADLOOM & CARPET TILE

Commercial carpet has come a long way over the last 20 years. Available in more styles, formats, colours and patterns than ever before, carpeting your commercial space has never offered more flexibility and choice.

From traditional wall-to-wall broadloom to the flexibility and versatility of carpet tile, we can help you find a solution that meets your project’s needs.

COMMERCIAL CARPET

Broadloom vs Tile

Broadloom carpet, as the name implies, is woven on a very wide loom. Most commonly shipped and installed in 12-foot wide large rolls, this type of carpet is still a very popular choice for wall-to-wall carpeting in commercial (and residential) applications. Broadloom’s advantages lie in its ability to mask subfloor imperfections and the flexibility to use different thicknesses and softenesses of underpad.

Carpet tiles – also known as modular carpet or carpet squares- are exactly that: square, modular tiles of carpeting, with an integrated backing material and base. Carpet tiles have become increasingly popular in high-traffic commercial applications, gaining a market share of approximately 30% over the last decade. Carpet tiles typically cost more than broadloom per square foot, but their modular design reduces installation costs, simplifies replacement, and produces far less waste material, bringing them very close to price parity with broadloom.

Design and Appearance

The sheer number of broadloom carpet styles – from rich traditional colours and patterns to expressive contemporary designs – provides considerable creative possibilities. The modular nature of carpet tiles, however, provides nearly unlimited freedom for creative design without compromising the functional abilities of the flooring. Tiles can be quarter-turned to produce a checkerboard effect; multiple tiles and patterns can be used to create fun and unique spaces – a children’s play area in a health club, for example – that simply cannot be achieved with rolled-out carpeting.

With either product, the quality of installation is paramount. Patterns should be chosen to suit the application and hide imperfections. For example, a checker-patterned broadloom carpet that covers a long hallway will show whether the carpet was installed correctly as the eye follows the pattern. A more complex pattern – or none at all – would be better suited to this type of application.

Durability and Environment

Whether you choose broadloom or carpet tile, both types will provide a warmer and more insulated floor than a hard surface material. The suitability of one over the other depends on a number of factors, such as volume of foot traffic, location of flooring, and the aesthetic desired. Either solution will perform best when a consistent and effective maintenance program is in place.

High quality broadloom with a moisture barrier backing offers excellent stain resistance and durability for most applications. Seams can be chemically welded for a virtually seamless appearance, and the variety of patterns allows for a great deal of creative freedom. In commercial-residential applications, broadloom imparts a warmer, more comforting aesthetic and can be made to feel wonderfully plush underfoot with an appropriate underlay material.
