Modular carpet tile patterns a great benefit for those that want more than just a solid or quarter turned appearance. With modular carpet tile patterns it is possible to use virtually unlimited color combinations and designs. When choosing modular modular carpet tile patterns there are a number of directions that the tiles can be turned, or adjusted to achieve a particular look. The more common patterns are quarter-turn, monolithic, brick, ashlar, non directional and duolithic.
Quarter Turn: Tiles turned 90 degrees to one another – also known as Checker Board or Tessellated.
Monolithic: Arrows should all point in the same direction – also known as Broadloom or Sheet.
Brick: Arrows should all point in the same direction with the tile bond displaced by half a tile in the width direction.
Ashlar: Arrows should all point in the same direction with the tile bond displaced by half a tile in the length direction.
Non Directional: Tiles installed without regard to direction and orientation.
Duolithic: An installation method whereby tile arrows can be pointed in opposite directions, resulting in a broadloom installation.
