These Sustainable Soft Surface Flooring Options Create Dynamic Interiors

Layered Duality brings together diverse forms, textures and colors that coordinate with each other.

Layered Duality by Tarkett brings together diverse forms, textures and colors to create a dynamic sense of unity for interior commercial spaces. It features four soft-surface patterns that are currently available, plus two non-PVC plank and tile patterns that will be available in fall 2024. The soft surfaces are made using Dynex SD, a premium cationic nylon with permanent resistance against most staining agents; it’s also treated with Eco-Ensure, an anti-soil chemistry with a C2C Material Health Certificate at the Platinum level. The fluorine-free soil protection technology lowers the cost of maintenance and promotes better indoor air quality with low VOC emissions.

Specifiers can choose from two backings; ethos Modular with Omnicoat Technology is a Cradle to Cradle Certified Silver, non-PVC backing made with post-consumer recycled PVB from car windshields and architectural glass, while Flex-Aire Modular Cushion is made with 28-46% overall recycled content and provides superior acoustic performance, appearance retention and moisture management. The entire collection is ortho-phthalate-free and part of Tarkett’s ReStart take-back and recycling program.
