Tarkett Delivers New Textured Finishes to Rubber Flooring Collection

Tarkett, the worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, has delivered the natural look of brushed aluminum, hand-troweled concrete and hand-tooled leather to the Johnsonite rubber flooring collection with the introduction of three new textured finishes.

Ideal for the hospitality and corporate segments, the Brushed, Concrete and Leather textures offer the market true, natural finishes by bringing rich colors and mineral looks to rubber flooring.

Design and Development

The result of countless hours of research and development, the new rubber textures capture the authentic essence of brushed metallic, hand-troweled concrete and tooled leather surfaces. These new textures were achieved through complex etchings created from hand-drawn files. The tiles offer the market true, natural finishes, bringing rich colors and mineral looks to rubber flooring.

"When you are creating something like this, it is a work of art," said Lee Eisinger, President, Akron Metal Etching. "Architects and designers expect a certain texture and appearance from the floor, but they want to make sure it's subtle enough not to take over the rest of the space. That is what Johnsonite was able to accomplish with these new textures."

Available in both 12" X 12" and 24" X 24" sizes, the rubber textures allow for design continuity with popular embossing or surface treatments found in other types of flooring. The replication of metallic and other mineral creates textures that bring uniqueness to every tile. The new options maintain a unique, luxurious appearance while providing slip resistance, shock absorbing qualities and natural acoustic properties.

Performance and Maintenance

The new textures, like all Johnsonite rubber flooring, provide extreme durability and a "no finish required" maintenance schedule for low-cost upkeep. To improve the cleaning process, design changes ensured that every facet of the tile surface is rounded, guaranteeing minimal debris collection in the textures.

Brushed, Concrete and Leather are made in the USA in an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified plant, assuring quality and a positive environmental impact. Textured rubber's durability and reduced maintenance schedule diminish the impact on the environment by using less water, chemicals and energy for maintenance. Rubber is also recyclable.
