In an open office environment, where many people work in the same space, sound caused by phone calls and other disturbances is a potential threat to the health and well-being of office workers. Many employers therefore decide to lay carpets, which have effective sound-absorbing qualities and create conditions for greater individual freedom of movement. The indoor environment is better because the carpet binds dust particles – and, of course, it does not emit harmful gases of any kind.
Carpets can also be used to subdivide the open office space into smaller zones and show the way to specific areas. Wall-to-wall carpet and carpet tiles are excellent choices for office environments. If you have raised floors, carpet tiles are the ideal choice as they provide easy access to underfloor cabling.
The durability of the carpet is decisive for office comfort. For example, it is important that your carpet is tested for use with wheeled office chairs. A good carpet can withstand years of use, even in the busiest of offices.
