The employees in an office building in Copenhagen, Denmark, were suffering from poor acoustics in the offices and noise from the corridors. It challenged their concentration and therefore also the indoor climate.
Carpet runners as acoustical improvement
The poor acoustics were solved with the installation of carpet runners in all corridors, which immediately improved the indoor climate. The employees are no longer disturbed by noise and impact sounds from the corridors and can again perform their best. The carpet runners have been beautifully finished with edging profiles in anodised aluminium, which forms a contrast to the grey-coloured carpet tiles and the wooden floor.
Carpet tiles installed as carpet runners
The carpet runners in the offices are made of flatwoven COM 1000 carpet tiles in the tile shape ZigZag-Tiles®. The particular thing with this carpet tile shape is that the carpet tiles can be installed in the same direction and the joints are minimally visible. This means that you get the exclusive look of a broadloom and all the advantages of carpet tiles. For example, single tiles can easily be replaced, if liquid is spilled on a tile. As the carpet tiles are delivered in boxes, they are easy to transport into buildings and for the floor fitter, they are easy to move from room to room.
