CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio (PRWEB) February 23, 2015
Tarkett, the worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, recently received the Platinum Award for Design Excellence (ADEX) for its new range of rubber textures: Brushed, Concrete and Leather. Selected by a panel of professionals representing a cross section of the design industry, these awards recognize the best product and project designs of the year.
ADEX is the largest and most prestigious awards program for product and project design in the architecture and design industry. Sponsored by designjournalmag.com, the international trade resource for interior designers, architects and facility managers since 1988, the awards acknowledge superior products in the categories of architecture, interior architecture, interior design projects and landscape architecture. Winners are announced each April in Design Journal.
Tarkett’s new textured finishes deliver the natural look of brushed aluminum, hand-troweled concrete and hand-tooled leather to the Johnsonite rubber flooring collection. Ideal for the hospitality and corporate segments, the finishes are the result of countless hours of research and development and were achieved through complex etching created from hand-drawn files.
Available in both 12” X 12” and 24” X 24” sizes, the tiles offer the market true, natural finishes, bringing rich colors and mineral looks to rubber flooring. The rubber textures allow for design continuity with popular embossing or surface treatments found in other types of flooring. And, like all Johnsonite rubber flooring, the new textures provide extreme durability and a “no finish required” maintenance schedule for low-cost upkeep.
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.
