Commercial Carpet Tiles And Office Safety

14/12/2020

Occupational health and safety in corporate settings can be improved with the investment in a carpet tile flooring solution. Falling hazards can be removed, trip zones reduced and unsafe installation practices that traditionally shut down offices for a few days can be avoided. With quick and easy installation, using carpet tiles as a floor covering is an effective way to keep your office functioning at optimum capacity.

Office tiles offer greater safety than traditional hardwood, linoleum or concrete floors because they are padded. If someone in an office setting were to trip and fall down, the risk of them becoming concussed or sustaining serious grazing or bruising is significantly reduced when carpet tiles are in place. Carpet tiles are soft and provide a firm barrier that will break most falls that happen in the office.

Furthermore, commercial carpet tiles are often treated with flame retardant to improve the safety rating of an office in terms of fire hazards. Most office carpet tiles won’t combust when exposed to a flame, which buys time for firefighters in such a situation to combat a blaze before it gets out of control.

Tripping zones in the office are not uncommon, despite OH&S regulation. This is especially the case when hard floors are present that may contain defects or faults that can cause a person to trip. High foot traffic areas are particularly at risk here. By covering such hazards in plush commercial carpet tiles, the risk of tripping is seriously reduced. Office workers can enjoy peace of mind walking over ‘that one spot’ that has proven hazardous in the past.

Another benefit of commercial carpet tiles is the ease of installation that comes with such a unique product. Whereas traditional carpet installations rely on the use of adhesives that release toxic fumes, at Carpet Direct 2 U we only use PH-neutral adhesives. Our glues don’t release any fumes, which means your office can continue to work during the installation. In other circumstances, offices are forced to close down for several days while new carpets are installed.
