Our company is a representative of large European factories producing flooring for offices and other commercial premises.
Porcelain tiles, self-leveling floors, parquet, and laminate are very rarely used, so we will talk about two main and most practical types of flooring for the office:
- Office tiled carpet and office rolled carpet;
- Office linoleum in lamellas and office linoleum in rolls.
Carpet for office
It is called commercial because the throughput of such a carpet is an average of 1000 people per day, and the manufacturer guarantees that for a long time at this load you will not see trodden tracks and other damage associated with operation. The warranty on the carpet for the office is about 5-7 years (for the 33rd class). Significant advantages of the carpet are its antistatic and electrical conductivity, due to which it can be laid in different production rooms, server rooms, and data centers. Office carpet can be tiled and rolled. Tiled has a bitumen or PVC substrate, which increases thermal insulation. Due to the relatively soft pile, the carpet has good sound insulation, which is a huge plus for open space offices and large open commercial areas.
Linoleum for office
Like carpet, office linoleum is in lamellas and rolls. For transportation and installation speed of such a floor covering, of course, it is more convenient to take linoleum in lamellas. The most common types of linoleum in construction are natural and PVC linoleum. All linoleum for office has high wear resistance, resistance to fire and deformation, antistatic, as well as very long service life.
PVC linoleum is heterogeneous and homogeneous. The first consists of several layers and its thickness reaches 6mm. The basis of heterogeneous linoleum is fiberglass. Homogeneous linoleum is made in one continuous homogeneous layer, its color does not lie on the surface of the coating, but permeates its entire thickness, which provides a high degree of abrasion resistance.
