Expanded and Updated, the New Acczent Designs and Colors Increases Opportunity for Design Flexibility

Tarkett is excited to announce new product updates to its ever-popular heterogeneous sheet product, Acczent. The previous collection of 19 SKU’s, including 1 steel and 18 wood visuals, will now expand to 25 woods, 6 concrete, 4 Zen and 4 Tisse.

To create design continuity between sheet and tile, which allows designers to install sheet and tile on the same job, Tarkett strategically selected wood and concrete visuals from the existing I. D. Freedom LVT line as well as Zen and Tisse visuals from the Space Modular Tile collection and included them in the new Acczent Heterogeneous Sheet Collection. With these additions to the Acczent Collection, Tarkett now offers wood, concrete and linen textural visuals in both sheet and tile formats.

Another important update to the line includes a change in gloss level. The new Acczent Collection will feature a matte finish which coordinates with our other homogeneous lines and eliminates the possibility of installing flooring with two different gloss finishes next to one another.

An exceptionally hard-wearing reinforced polyurethane surface treatment and 32mil wear layer make this product one of the most resistant and durable commercial sheet vinyl products on the market. Whether you are looking for high chemical resistance or easy-to-clean properties, Acczent will help you to generate savings during the product’s lifetime and minimize the use of water, detergents and energy for the floor’s maintenance. Versus other products with polyurethane-reinforced (PUR) construction, Acczent can offer annual savings of 17% in labor costs, uses 23% less water, 83% less detergent and 66% less energy to maintain. The high wear-resistance and low-maintenance properties of Acczent, together with its versatile design and color offering, make this flooring ideal for use in heavy-traffic, commercial areas such as hospitals, schools, offices and retail applications.

The new Acczent sheet products can be either heat welded with an easy to clean solid color weld rod or cold welded.

Acczent is the only heterogeneous vinyl sheet product with all of these better indoor air quality attributes:

  •     Phthalate-free technology, except pre-consumer recycled content
  •     TVOCs under 10 /µg cubic meter (under limit of quantification)
  •     FloorScore™ certified meeting CA01350
  •     100 % recyclable

  •     Low-emitting water-based adhesives
