Tarkett unveils asthma- and allergy-friendly flooring
Sustainable flooring company Tarkett has announced its FiberFloor line of products, the only collection in the industry that is certified asthma- and allergy-friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
FiberFloor was created in response to the significant portion of homes where one or more family members suffers from asthma or allergies (one in five). The product is made with woven fiberglass, foam and a wear-resistant top layer. The AAFA certification indicates that FiberFloor is minimally retentive of allergens and that installation and recommended cleaning won't result in elevated levels of chemicals and allergens.
FiberFloor is also among the Tarkett products that have received FloorScore certification by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute and Scientific Certifications Systems. As such, all of Tarkett's flooring products produce no more than 100 micrograms of VOC emissions per cubic meter of air.
Tarkett also offers an alternative line of low-VOC flooring products called Transcend.
All Transcend and FiberFloor (except Ambiente) are phthalate-free.
