Backing Options

Make the correct choice for your interior

A carpet tile’s backing is critical to its performance, durability and appearance retention. The right backing will not only ensure the carpet tile  remains dimensionally stable and flat on the floor, it can also provide acoustic, insulation and sustainability benefits.

Different environments call for different backing solutions and making the right backing choice is an important part of the carpet specification process. Milliken offers a range  of innovative, practical and sustainable options.
