Grace – a sustainable wooden flooring with a new ultra-matt, silky-smooth protective finish
Tarkett is delighted to launch a new engineered wood flooring collection called Grace. This elegant new range combines the natural appearance of an oiled floor with the easy maintenance of a lacquered surface product. The collection consists of single plank formats in two different widths, the popular 3-strip effect, and an innovative basketweave pattern. A total offering of twelve floors in six colours, all with warm and contemporary nuances and treated with a new and unique ultra-matt lacquer that feels silky-smooth as oiled or untreated wood.
In Grace, the ultra-matt surface, soft brushing, and the sheer nuances come together in a floor that maintains its beauty over time. The collection is treated with Proteco ExtraMatt, a new lacquer that makes the floors durable and easy to maintain in everyday life. Thanks to the lacquer, Grace also has a super-matt finish, where neither glare nor glitter arise in the wood’s texture and brings out the beauty and character of oak, regardless of light conditions.
Tarkett has been working on a new patented* lacquering system for more than two years, to ensure the best properties in terms of durability, technical performance, and appearance. This has resulted in a flooring solution that is comfortable to walk on, easy to clean, and has effective protection against everyday wear and tear, as well as stains.
Sustainable and environmentally certified
Grace is certified Silver level with the Cradle to Cradle® sustainability label and the entire collection is PEFC(PEFC/05-35-125) certified for sustainable forestry**.
Grace is also certified with the Nordic Swan Ecolabel as the flooring has a high proportion of renewable material, good durability, and meets the stringent Nordic Swan Ecolabel requirements concerning chemicals that are harmful to health and the environment. Among other things, Grace has been tested to ensure that the floors meet the requirements for low organic compound emissions, and thereby create a healthy indoor environment.
