PosiTile® is a patented carpet solution for Tate access flooring. StaticSmart (formerly UTP) offers many sustainable and recyclable PosiTile™ designs manufactured with recycled content. PosiTile is an adhesive free carpet system that indexes “One to One” with Tate’s “ConCore®” panel.
Indexed PosiTile® makes it easier to access and change floor panels. Indexing produces substantially less waste than traditional glue down carpet tile systems over access floors. PosiTile is available with StaticSmart “Advanced Static Control” as an option.
In the networked office, people, equipment and furniture are constantly being moved. That means moving access floor panels and carpet tiles. This can be a time-consuming, labor- intensive process with "glue-down" carpet tiles. Now there's a carpet tile that permits easy relocation of electrical boxes for total flexibility with work stations. Unlike glued-down carpet tile, each PosiTile module is a carpet tile (23.98 x 23.98 inches) that's engineered to match one Tate ConCore® access floor panel without the need for messy adhesives. Four patent-pending, ultrasonically welded buttons on the underside of the tile provide precise indexed alignment with four matching indentations in the ConCore panel. Now, anyone can rearrange their work area quickly and easily.
