Carpet Tile Versus Broadloom
Specifiers and end users are increasingly becoming aware of advantages offered by modular carpet or carpet tile that are not offered by traditional broadloom carpet. First, as the face fiber of modular carpet is woven into a hard synthetic backing, that supports the structure of the tufted surface, modular carpet far out performs any similar face weight broadloom carpet, and, correspondingly, often ends up being a more cost effective specification than the lower priced broadloom carpet.

Also, aided by technology advances in the manufacturer of modular carpet, designers now have a much wider array of pattern and texture options to choose from, that previously were reserved only for broadloom carpet styles. And, add to that the fact that the entry of new manufacturers to this portion of the industry has increased competition and driven the price of modular carpet down as compared to broadloom carpet, it is no wonder this segment of the industry continues to grow at an accelerated pace.
