Description - Our 5/8” thick interlocking economy soft carpet tiles are an ideal choice for a low cost carpet tile. These discount tiles are light weight, easy to install, and portable. These tiles are also slightly less durable than our standard soft carpet tiles and therefore have a lower price. A good rule of thumb when determining which carpet tile grade would work best for you is that these economy grade tiles will start to show some wear and tear after a few trade shows where as our premium carpet tiles will take 10-20 shows to start showing any wear and tear typically. Our economy grade carpet tiles also have a high density EVA foam backing to help provide comfort and cushion under foot. Our customers tell us this helps them immensely when they are stuck on their feet for many hours on end. Even though these carpet tiles are cheap in cost, they also have many of the same benefits of our premium carpet floor tiles in that they are also waterproof, sound absorbing, and help insulate users from cold concrete sub floors. Each economy soft carpet tile also comes with detachable border pieces. This means that each carpet floor tile can be a border, center, or corner tile.

Installation of interlocking tiles is very simple and typically done by the consumer. Typical installation of these tiles is as follows:
- First, clean your sub floor so it is free of all dirt, grease or debris.
- Start in one corner of the room with a corner tile and add border tiles outward along the adjacent walls. Add center, corner, and border tiles where you see fit.
- When coming up to an opposite wall, make sure you cut the tiles to fit the area leaving a gap that’s roughly the thickness of the tiles being used to account for expansion and contraction of the floor tiles in varied temperature ranges.
Note: When piecing interlocking tiles together, adhesives are usually not used since the weight of the locked together product is usually enough to keep the floor tiles from moving. However, if you do experience movement and would like to ensure that the tiles do not slide at all, some double-sided tape or mat tape can be used around the perimeter of the installation to prevent any movement.
