Van Dyck Floors recently launched two new carpet tile ranges to meet the demand for new and interesting carpet tiles. “Craft” and “Graphite” combine aesthetics with functionality to withstand the constant traffic and weathering in the heavy commercial market. Both carpet tiles ranges are manufactured in 50cm x 50cm and are available in four neutral colours.

Bernd de Smedt, Sales & Marketing Director of Van Dyck Floors, says the company has noticed a steady upwards trend in the demand for affordable but stylish carpet tile ranges for the heavy commercial sector.

“We therefore wanted to expand the options we give designers, architects and specifiers for their interior designs. Neutral colours remain very popular (mainly the greys, charcoals, browns and beiges) which can then be combined with bright colours to bring in some colour and contrast,” says Bernd.

Craft is a tufted loop pile tile that looks like a naturally woven carpet cut into tiles, with very earthy and natural-looking fibres. This carpet is easy to match with other interior finishes because each colour is made from a combination of various yarn colours. These attributes also disguise dirt make them easy to maintain. Graphite, a tufted cut pile tile, creates a softer velour-looking finish, with an organic overprint design to give the floors a more random look and feel.

Both carpets can withstand heavy foot traffic and their durability means they can be re-used for a secondary market at the end of their lifespan. They contain no PVCs and are very low on VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and the bitumen backing consists of partially recycled material.

Easy replacement, easy maintenance and ease of installation are some of the reasons why carpet tiles continue to attract market attention. Dust-free replacement, combined with the ability to replace single tiles instead of re-carpeting entire areas, prevents unnecessary disruptions and helps clients save on expenses and time.

Craft and Graphite carpet tiles can be used in conjunction with other Van Dyck Floor carpet tile ranges (in different colours, textures, structures and shapes), enhancing the design and colour options for interior use.

“The design flexibility, superior quality, environmental considerations and low maintenance of our carpet tiles make them the perfect interior solution for offices. We’re very excited to launch the Craft and Graphite ranges which provide our valued customers more choice to create an exciting floor finish,” concludes Bernd.
