All over the world today, there are more than 41,000 airports that welcome millions of airline passengers. It’s not surprising that airports are one of the busiest places in any city, and one of the leading sites for high foot traffic.
With the sheer number of people treading airport floors every day, it’s crucial for airports to have the best airport carpet possible.
The right carpets for airports are specially designed and meticulously manufactured to withstand wear and tear all-day, every single day—while still retaining aesthetic value.
Hard surface floors allow allergens such as airborne dust and bacterial particles to move into the air. On the other hand, an airport carpet improves the quality of indoor air by catching dust and small particulates until they are vacuumed. In addition, carpeted airport floors provide a soft and comfortable feeling to the feet, decreasing leg muscle fatigue, which is common among exhausted travelers.
Installing the right airport carpet can also enhance travelers’ experience. Research shows that good carpets for airports can also boost people’s mood and influence their behavior. Many travelers are stressed, and the airport carpet—along with other smart interior design strategies (in the form of natural lighting, low ceilings, and comfortable seats)—can provide an atmosphere similar to people’s living rooms, which helps travelers relax before their flight.
The benefits don’t end there: Research has shown that when airline passengers are relaxed and happy, they will spend around seven percent more on retail purchases in your airport, and about 10 percent more on duty-free products sold there.
Just like every other site for carpet installation (schools, hotels, etc.), the best carpets for airports are those that are ‘fit for purpose’. This means that your air airport carpet should have the following characteristics:
The best carpets for airports stand out in these aspects
As previously noted, a good airport carpet should, first and foremost, be able to hold out against the wear and tear caused by millions of footsteps on an everyday basis. It needs to have superior craftsmanship in order to last for many decades before needing to be completely replaced.
It’s crucial to minimize the need for replacement to avoid disrupting the operations of any airport, which can lead to disastrous effects to millions of people. This will likewise lower the risk of causing inconvenience to passengers, which can be detrimental to your airport’s name and bottom line.
Carpets also provide acoustic benefits, such as outstanding sound absorption, particularly compared to hard or resilient flooring materials. High quality carpets for airports can effectively lower the noise levels in the busy airport environment, minimizing distractions and annoyance from both external noise (such as traffic sounds) as well as internal noise (including footsteps, wheeled luggages and trolleys, the constant barrage of announcements, and more).
The benefits of better acoustics extend to airport staff as well. Reduced noise (along with comfortable underfoot) contributes to their wellness and increased productivity in the workplace.
Carpets for airports are considered the world’s biggest medium for interior visual design. As such, there’s an infinite number of patterns and color schemes possible, all with the power to positively influence the mood and behaviors of people traveling through your airport by making them feel right at home.
