The three best backsides…in the carpet tile business


Ontera has re-imagined and re-defined the backing systems of our carpet tiles.

The WellBACrange of carpet tile backing systems was developed to ensure both occupant wellbeing and ease of installation for the professional flooring contractor. All WellBACbackings are available in tile and plank format.

    • Industry leading moisture management with non-reactive backings – to enhance the installation process.

    • Up to 24% greater underfoot comfort for enhanced ergonomics while standing.

    • Up to 50% improved acoustics for quieter, more productive spaces.

    • 3rd party verified Red-List Free products for occupant and installer wellbeing.

WellBAC™ Backing Solutions

Environmentally sustainable and transparent with a hard back and two cushion back options, WellBACbacking solutions provide uncompromised performance for all project needs. The WellBACNon-Reactive Felt Layer is chemically inert and won’t react to adhesive residue, reducing time and costs required for floor preparation.

Existing collections will transition into the WellBACbacking options in the near future. Please refer to Customer Service.


WellBAC™ Function

The innovative non-reactive felt layer which forms part of WellBACFunction assists to minimise floor preparation and support moisture wicking. Advanced micro-engineering within the hard-backing system provides ease of installation and improved handling for the installer.

Cushion Back

  • WellBAC Comfort

    Moisture mitigation is an inherent property of Ontera cushion backing as it allows water vapour to escape and evaporate naturally. Using an open-cell foam technology, Ontera’s WellBAC Comfort cushion backing also delivers health, wellness and performance benefits, including improved acoustics, appearance retention and underfoot comfort.

    *Average nominal total thickness 7.40mm

  • WellBAC Comfort Plus

    Going beyond the benefits of Comfort cushion, WellBAC Comfort Plus offers a thicker cushion backing for a premium level of moisture management, underfoot comfort, acoustic performance and appearance retention. Ideal for sit-to-stand work stations.

    *Average nominal total thickness 10.40mm
