Office Carpet Tiles Part Two

Durability of office carpet tiles

One of the biggest consideration when purchasing an office carpet tile is it’s durability. Most consumers want an office carpet tile that will stand up to daily wear and tear and still manage to look good for the next decade or so.

Nylon carpet fiber is well known as being very durable. It has long been considered to be the most durable synthetic carpet fiber available today. Olefin or Polypropylene fiber is not as resilient as other fibers, meaning that it does not have the same ability to “bounce back” after being compressed by foot traffic. When used in a commercial carpet, it is usually recommended for light to medium commercial applications.

 

Eco-friendliness of office carpet tiles

In recent years, much advancement has been made in improving the eco-friendliness of nylon fiber. Many nylon carpets are now recyclable at the end of their useful life, which helps to keep these carpets out of landfills, where the carpet sits indefinitely. In addition, an increasing number of nylon carpets are now made from recycled content.

Some nylon carpet can be recycled back into nylon carpet, creating a cradle-to-cradle cycle that has significant environmental benefits. Whilst olefin or polypropylene office carpet, is petroleum based and not as eco-friendly as it would be, this petroleum-based carpet would end up in the landfill in less than 10 years.
