Powerbond® RS CERTIFIED by Allergy Standards Ltd.

Powerbond® RS Hybrid Resilient Flooring is the First Soft Surface Flooring CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®

People with asthma and allergies are often advised to avoid carpet whenever possible. This is because carpet can harbor dust mites, foster mold growth, and make it difficult to remove allergens while cleaning.

What’s different about Powerbond RS Hybrid Resilient Flooring?

Even though Powerbond RS is soft and comfortable like carpet, it’s actually a unique hybrid resilient flooring that’s durable and easy to clean—and far less likely to contribute to asthma and allergy triggers. In the strict testing protocols established by Allergy Standards Ltd., Powerbond RS met or exceeded all requirements for soft-surface flooring.

Asthma and Allergy bullet points

Enjoy the comfort of carpet with the durable performance of resilient sheet flooring.

Powerbond is a heterogeneous construction of nylon and closed-cell cushion. Fused together through heat and pressure, the layers are inseparable. It’s not carpet. It’s not resilient. It’s an innovative hybrid of both--bringing together comfort, style and softness, with long-lasting durability. This floor covering is completely impermeable to moisture and contaminants, while absorbing sound.

  • Closed-cell cushion backing & impermeable, welded seams prevent mold growth
  • Softened acoustics
  • Low pile height so dust & allergens are easily vacuumed
  • Dynex SD® fiber with permanent stain resistance
  • Contains no chemicals of concern, including ortho-phthalates & PFAS

Impermeable to Moisture

When spills or even plumbing leaks occur, Powerbond customers have simply extracted the water and cleaned, without replacing the flooring. That’s a long-term solution you can trust.

Lowest Total Cost of Ownership

It’s been estimated that more than 90 percent of a floor’s lifecycle cost is spent on long-term cleaning and maintenance, but most flooring decisions are still made on the basis of initial purchase price. Powerbond’s unique construction makes it easy to install, clean and repair— ensuring the lowest total cost of ownership per square foot over the life of the floor.

  • Lifetime, non-pro-rated warranty
  • Industry’s highest TARR rating
  • Ability to replace damaged sections, without replacing the entire sheet
  • Installation over high-moisture areas without slab moisture testing
  • Soil trapped and localized instead of being tracked throughout the building, which reduces wall-to-wall vacuuming to weekly Lowest Embodied Footprint (BEES)
