Tempo and its little sister Tempo Stripe from the Una collection are the entry-level collection from EGE. If you’re looking for a top-notch carpet tile at an affordable price-point then Tempo is the one to fall in love with. The first product from EGE to feature 100% solution-dyed yarn for contract use, Tempo is an extremely durable tile and will resist dirt, spills and stains. With a 20 year warranty we’re not sure exactly how entry-level this carpet tile is, except for the price!
This Class 33 carpet tile is made from 100% polyamide and has a total thickness of 7mm. All EGE carpet tiles are suitable for castor chair use and (here’s the boring but very important stuff!) have the usual EU standards for fire-resistance, colour fastness, and static control.
One important thing to mention – EGE carpet tiles come in the unusual size of 48cm x 48cm with each box equalling a mind-boggling 5.0688m2. 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 Jason Orange, he’ll tell you it’s the backing guys that gives strength and superb acoustic properties to the big man 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.
