The word "epoca" means "time" in Portugese, and the word "silky" comes from the Greek meaning "mmmmm that feels soooo soft". Okay, maybe not, you will be thinking that when you touch these gorgeous longhaired silk-like carpet tiles. These felt-backed carpet tiles enjoy awesome acoustic properties, so no more listening to Janet upstairs trotting over to Accounts in her size 10 high-heels, with these tiles your ears will enjoy a siesta.
One important thing to mention – EGE carpet tiles come in the unusual size of 48cm x 48cm with each box equalling a mind-boggling 2.3040m2. Luckily, our handy price calculator will work out how much you need if you enter your square metreage.
What’s in a backing? Just ask Posh Spice, she’ll tell you it’s the backing singers that gives strength and superb acoustic properties to the prima donnas upfront, and it’s not so different in the world of carpet tiles! EGE’s innovative Ecotrust 350 felt backings are not just any old chemical drenched backings, made from nasty polluting things like PVC and bitumen. Oh no, this 100% recycled backing has better eco-credentials than Greenpeace HQ (just kidding). The patented Ecotrust backing is made from recycled water bottles that are converted into soft, but durable felt.
Because of the felt backing, not only does it have superior acoustic properties over traditional backing, it is also easier to cut and therefore speeds up the fitting process.
