How To Choose Carpet Tiles by Durability, Sound Insulation, Antistatic, Comfortability (Pile)?
There are many kinds of carpet tiles, so which one should I choose? What's the difference? Eliminate such doubts! We will introduce tips on how to choose carpet tiles by the durability, sound insulation, electric control, and stepping comfort!
Choose Carpet Tile By Durability
Where should I check the durability of carpet tile? Check the marks for heavy walking and medium walking! Depending on the product, there is a mark that distinguishes between heavy walking and medium walking. If it is not marked, it can be identified by the material of the pile.
For heavy traffic - Made of 100% nylon pile resistant to sagging and dirt
For medium traffic - Cost-Effective Polypropylene Pile
The criteria for choosing according to the number of people walking, such as offices and passageways where people gather, will change. When many people come and go, such as hotel lobbies and large commercial facilities, tile carpets for heavy walking, and tile carpets for medium walking are okay if the amount of walking is about the same as in general offices and hotel rooms. If you use a medium-walking tile carpet in a heavy walking area, it will fall off quickly, shorten the cycle of replacement, and as a result, running costs may increase.
Made Of 100% Nylon and Polypropylene, the Difference in Durability Between Them
Nylon: Pink / Polypropylene: Black
A: Awkwardness - Nylon carpet tile has excellent elastic resilience and is extremely difficult to scratch.
B: Resistant to wear and tear - The pile is frayed by friction, but nylon is strong and hard to fray.
C: Dirt resistance - Nylon is difficult to stand out from dirt and has excellent water and oil repellency.
D: Awkward appearance - When the same load is applied, nylon is not unsightly in appearance because it generates spatula uniformly.
E: Length of product life - As a result, nylon has a long product life, which in turn leads to a reduction in waste and a reduction in environmental impact.
Choose Carpet Tile By Sound Insulation
Where should I check for tile carpets with excellent sound insulation? Check the sound insulation mark representing the sound insulation grade!
It is a mark that represents the grade of sound insulation. The higher the number inside, the higher the sound insulation and the sound insulation effect that reduces the transmission of sound to the downstairs can be expected.
Experiment to verify the effect of reducing the impact sound of the floor! Prepare flooring only and those with a sound-insulating type tile carpet laid on the flooring, and place it with a slight gap on top of the red powder. Drop a plastic bottle on both sides and compare how the red powder is splashed due to the impact at the time of falling. Compared to flooring alone, it is much less likely to scatter powder due to impact if you lay a sound insulation-type tile carpet!
The sound insulation type has an impact sound mitigation effect! Recommended for when you are worried about footsteps downstairs in condominiums and apartment buildings, etc., or for a space where energetic children play!
Choose Carpet Tile By Electrostatic
Where to check for the perfect tile carpet for an office that handles machines that hate static electricity? Check the anti-current mark! The landmark of the tile carpet with the power control function is this electric power control mark! Besides that, please check the performance part described on each product page. The electrical resistance of each tile carpet is described.
It is ranked to A ~ D according to the numerical value that shows the current resistance property. The smaller the number, the higher the power resistance:
Indication of Application
1.0kv or less where to use OA equipment, places that dislike static electricity
2.0 kv or less: General offices, hotels, etc. where use occurs at all times in a dry state (10% or less)
3.0kv or less: A level where static electricity is not bothered by general use
3.0kv ultra suitable for use in places where static electricity is unlikely to occur
Static electricity is a great enemy of personal computers and other precision machines that are always installed in offices and companies. Magnetism makes it easy for the machine to malfunction, and dust sticking to the machine due to static electricity and entering the machine can also cause machine malfunctions. Of course, static electricity also occurs at home, so dust sticks to furniture, etc., making it difficult to clean or disgusting "snapping!" at the moment of touching the doorknob is also the work of static electricity!
Choose Carpet Tile by Comfortability
Where to check if you choose a carpet tile for your step? The point of product selection is the pile on the surface! Tile carpets have a strong image of being used in offices, but they are also often used in places where you can spend a relaxing time, such as hotel bedrooms and lounges. Some of them have a soft skin touch on the premise of walking barefoot at home.
Is there a difference in the shape of the carpet tile pile?
There are three types of tile carpet piles. A loop pile with a loop of the pile, a cut pile with trimmed hair, and a cut and loop with both loops and cuts:
Loop pile - It is often used in offices because it feels silky and elastic, and has excellent resilience.
Cut pile - It features a soft and soft texture. It is often preferred for places where you walk barefoot or in bedrooms where you have less walking. It is inferior in elasticity and durability to loop pile.
Cut & Loop Pile - Cut piles and loop piles are mixed into one piece. It feels like stepping on just in between a loop and a cut.
Is there a difference in pile length and density?
Of course, it depends on the tile carpet. If you look at the "standards" section on each product page, you can see the characteristics of that product.
Pile length: The longer the pile, the better the tread. However, due to the large sinking, it will settle faster. For office tile carpets, pile lengths of 3 to 6 mm are common. There is also a type called high & low that combines piles of different lengths.
Pile density: The higher the density of the pile, the firmer the stepping comfort and durability. On the other hand, the lower the pile density, the easier the stepping comfort. The notation representing the pile density is called "G (gauge)", and if it is 1/8 G, it means that there are 8 horizontal piles between 1 inch.
Walking mark: Depending on the manufacturer, this mark may be attached to tile carpets that are finished to a gentle touch on the premise of walking barefoot in the home. This mark can also be used as a guide for stepping comfort.
