SPECIFIER REVIEW

An education in flooring

TARKETT LTD has used its century of experience manufacturing Linoleum floors to produce a new range of colourful flooring ideal for use in the education sector.

The Linoleum xf2 range introduces 47 new colours to Tarkett’s education flooring portfolio that already includes LVT, sports flooring, safety, homogeneous and heterogeneous vinyl sheet and tile products.

Tarkett hopes the broad range of colours and options available will encourage installers, architects and designers to be more creative when selecting flooring for educational buildings.

With colour ranges varying from natural stone greys through to grass greens, raspberry reds and bright, bold yellows and blues – ideal for creating floors with impact.

Tarkett Marketing Manager Steve Urwin said: “As one of the few global manufacturers of genuine linoleum we’re passionate about this product.

“The variety of colours available is enormous and I’m looking forward to seeing some of the interesting and creative designs that are produced as a result.

“It’s also incredibly sustainable. We’ve considered its environmental impact from production through to cleaning.”

During manufacture 95% of the product scraps and all water needed for production are recycled.

Tarkett then applies its xf2 surface treatment to the flooring making it easier to clean for the end user.

This means Linoleum xf2 requires less maintenance and reduces the use of harmful cleaning products – further improving the environmental impact of the flooring.

Tarkett’s Linoleum xf2 portfolio totals 112 colours including a range of Grande Classics – colours that are guaranteed to be in production through to 2033.

Steve said: “Being able to guarantee production of certain floors through to 2033 provides designers and buyers with piece of mind whatever happens.

“This longevity is fairly unique in the flooring industry and is one of the many key benefits of selecting a Tarkett floor for an educational environment.”

Beyond linoleum Tarkett has developed an extensive range of flooring suitable for an educational environment.

Wood and vinyl provide solutions for a variety of applications in every area to suit the design and budget.

The company also has a range of safety flooring options helping prevent trips and slips and its Floorcraft design service can produce bespoke flooring designs to bring the floor to life.

Due to the large selection of colours available, Tarkett has developed an intuitive digital visualiser to help designers and clients with the colour selection process.

It allows designs short on time to see what the flooring will look like when laid in a specified environment. It also helps improve aesthetics and provides confidence when choosing a floor.   For further information on Linoleum xf2 please visit www.tarkett.co.uk
