Ultra low VOCs for better indoor air quality with floors

Ultra-low VOCs

Breath in clearer air.

At Tarkett we’re passionate about the promotion of healthy living. That starts with breathing clear air, and as we spend on average 90% of our time indoors*, indoor air quality plays a huge part in our wellbeing.

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are the gases emitted from both natural and man-made everyday objects. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short-or long-term adverse health effects.

At Tarkett we’ve been pioneers of flooring solutions with low and ultra-low VOC emissions since 2011, offering products with VOC emission levels that are between 10 and 100 times lower than the most stringent world standards. In some cases, our VOC emissions are so low that they cannot even be quantified. We’ve also developed glue-free laying techniques for our click and loose-lay vinyl collections and modular carpet tile, further reducing the potential for VOCs in your indoor air.

We’re so dedicated to helping to improve the Indoor Air Quality you breathe, we’ve exceeded industry standards to such a degree that we’re setting our own standards. But you don’t just need to take our word for it.  Our commitment goes a step further to making sure our standards have third-party testing and validation - facts that give you peace of mind that with a Tarkett flooring, you can breathe easy in the knowledge you made a healthy choice.

Just another way we're
Doing Good. Together.
