Breathe in clearer air
At Tarkett we’re passionate about the promotion of healthy living. That starts with breathing clear air, and as we spend on average 90% of our time indoors*, indoor air quality plays a huge part in our wellbeing.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are the gases emitted from both natural and man-made everyday objects. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short-or long-term adverse health effects.
At Tarkett we’ve been pioneers of flooring solutions with low and ultra-low VOC emissions since 2011, offering products with VOC emission levels that are between 10 and 100 times lower than the most stringent world standards. In some cases, our VOC emissions are so low that they cannot even be quantified! We’ve also developed glue-free laying techniques for our click and loose-lay vinyl collections and low maintenance products, further reducing the potential for VOCs in your indoor air.
We’re so dedicated to helping to improve the Indoor Air Quality you breathe, we’ve exceeded industry standards to such a degree that we’re setting our own standards. But you don’t just need to take our word for it. Eurofins, a leading independent air quality testing organisation, has verified our products to Gold and Platinum level for Indoor Air Quality, proving that our industry-busting standards are not just claims, they’re facts. Facts that give you peace of mind that with a Tarkett flooring, you can breathe clear air in the knowledge you made the right choice.
Making conscious choices. For people and planet.
