Carpet tiles have been around for over 50 years and were originally developed for homes as a hardwearing alternative to traditional broadloom carpet. Carpet tiles offer many advantages over traditional broadloom carpets and make designing your own floor scheme easy. Recently there have been some great new designs introduced. Interior designers, makeover programs and interior magazines are increasingly presenting carpet tiles as a new design trend.
At Hurren and Glynn in Brighton and Hove we have a huge selection of carpet tiles available. We have been fitting carpet tiles in Brighton, Hove, Sussex and Surrey since 1959 so you can rely on us for expert advice.
The vast majority of carpet tile projects we do are for offices in the commercial sector.
Advantages of Carpet Tiles
- Easy to install
- Easy to transport
- Easy to fit in awkward shaped rooms
- Easy to clean and if a tile is damaged, you can simply replace the tile rather than the whole floor
- Installations can be done in small areas or temporarily – you can even work around the furniture rather than empty the whole room
Carpet tiles include a strong backing so they require no underlay and produce less waste than other flooring types, particularly in awkward shaped rooms. This saves time and money and because carpet tiles are fairly easy to install, you can lay them yourself and save the cost of professional fitting. Any damage or spills can be resolved by replacing one tile rather than the entire floor, which is reassuring and overall means carpet tiles are definitely a cost effective flooring option.

Carpet tiles are manufactured with many yarns but the most popular and hard-wearing are made from Solution Dyed Nylon. Our best seller for this type of yarn is the JHS ‘Triumph’ Loop pile tile. We have fitted this tile in blue chip companies and the feedback we receive is positive.
JHS has been a leading supplier of commercial carpet, contract carpet tiles and commercial floorcoverings in the UK for over 50 years. They are a major supplier to hotels, offices, schools, nursing homes, student accommodation, hospitals, social housing, new builds and retail outlets.
A summary of 4 of their ranges follows: –
The JHS ‘Triumph’ loop pile tile’ is very hardwearing, budget priced and is what we would recommend for any commercial situation and comes with a ‘10 year heavy commercial wear guarantee’. They are of a tufted loop pile construction and made from 100% Solution Dyed Nylon. This means that the nylon is all one colour and will last longer than the Polypropylene variety. They have a continuous use castor chair rating.
The JHS ‘Rimini’ loop pile tile is slightly cheaper and made from Polypropylene. These are suitable for moderate to general use areas or domestic areas, such as light office usage or around the home. As you may have guessed from the name, they are of loop pile construction and have a ‘5 year wear guarantee’.
