Introduction to Commercial Wall-to-wall Carpets
As you may know, wall-to-wall carpets can be categorized into three categories: Residential, Commercial, and Residential & Commercial. Residential carpets are mostly suitable for home decoration and areas with low foot traffic, while commercial ones are better suited for use in high-traffic areas such as offices. Of course, there is a third type that combines some specifications of residential carpets and some from commercial ones.
In the following sections, we will explore the technical specifications of commercial wall-to-wall carpets. Subsequently, we will showcase some of Zarif Carpets’ commercial wall-to-wall carpets.
Specifications of Commercial Wall-to-wall Carpets
As mentioned earlier, commercial wall-to-wall carpets require high resistance to wear and tear due to their use in busy places. They must maintain their texture and style over the years. Two options for achieving this are Loop Pile Carpets and Carpet Tiles.
Loop pile carpets are a subcategory of tufted carpets in which each pile looks like a loop. This characteristic made them highly appropriate for crowded places with high foot traffic.
Carpet tiles are almost a new trend in commercial wall-to-wall carpets, as it is said in ‘Carpet Tiles: A Versatile and Sustainable Flooring Solution‘, carpet tiles are also known as modular carpet or carpet squares, is a type of flooring that consists of individual sections or tiles of carpeting. Unlike traditional wall-to-wall carpet rolls, carpet tiles are typically square-shaped and come in various sizes, commonly 50×50 cm per tile.
It’s important to note that Loop pile carpets and Carpet tiles are not entirely separate categories. Specifically, loop pile carpet tiles, characterized by their loop structure, are the most popular type of carpet tile.
In addition to their loop pile structure, a key characteristic that enhances the durability of carpet tiles is their modular design. Being in individual pieces, if a section of the flooring is damaged, you can simply remove the affected tile rather than replacing the entire carpet.
Loop Pile Carpet or Carpet Tiles?
Both loop pile carpets and carpet tiles offer unique advantages, and neither is entirely advantageous over the other. However, there are distinct pros and cons for each. Loop pile carpets are integrated, while carpet tiles are in pieces, making them highly suitable for specific cases. For instance, if a section of your carpet gets damaged, you can easily replace just the damaged section, unlike classic wall-to-wall carpets such as loop pile carpets, where you’d need to change the entire carpet.
Another important factor to consider is the price; loop pile carpets are generally more cost-effective than carpet tiles. Additionally, they offer a wider range of designs compared to carpet tiles.
