Industrial environments that require carpet flooring pose a very different set of needs than hospitality, education or office spaces – conditions are generally harsher, and the flooring needs to reflect this.
Quality industrial flooring should extremely hard-wearing, durable and versatile, but it also needs to look great. MK Floors are Australia’s top carpet solutions provider for commerical and industrial spaces with a range of products fit for purpose sourced from the best suppliers around the world. Let’s have a look at the advantages of quality industrial carpet.
Industrial spaces don’t necessarily cavernous warehouses or manufacturing plants. Industrial spaces that require quality carpet may include:
• Industrial offices
• Industrial workshops
• Creative/modular spaces
• Showrooms and convention centres
• Recording spaces
Good quality carpet has fantastic sound dampening characteristics. This is a huge plus for industrial spaces that are generally quite open are prone to loud sound reflections. Dampening can be increased even further by noise absorbing floor underlay for extremely effective soundproofing. Whether industrial spaces require soundproofing, or just want to minimise volume levels, carpet is an excellent choice.
Industrial carpet should be extremely hard-wearing, durable and versatile, but it also needs to look great. Modular carpet (commonly known as carpet tiles) is carpet manufactured in tile format and is a very versatile flooring option, both aesthetically and practically. Modern modular carpet features variegated patterning, highlight and feature tiles that can add character to large industrial areas, which would not be possible (or would be extremely expensive) with other flooring types.
Large industrial spaces are usually poorly insulated and can get really cold. Carpet is a passive insulator and can be very effective in regulating indoor temperatures. Not only does this make a space feel more comfortable and inviting, it can also save you a fortune in energy costs.
Safety is paramount in any commercial space, but is of particular concern in industrial sectors. Carpet is an excellent choice for high-risk areas where slips commonly occur such as hallways, stairwells and manufacturing floors.
High quality carpet should last a lifetime, if it is taken care of properly. Carpet is easy to maintain with conventional cleaning methods such as vacuuming. If effective protection methods are put in place, such as mats at entrances for wiping feet, maintenance is fairly straightforward.
Carpet is an excellent economic option for large industrial spaces. Although there are a few grander carpet types, cost-effective options avaliable too. Tufted carpet is manufactured in both loop and cut-pile varieties that can be made very quickly, making it far cheaper to manufacture than many other flooring types. These savings are then passed on to you.
