Introducing Grace from Tarkett, sustainable wooden flooring

Tarkett has launched a wooden flooring collection that combines the natural appearance of an oiled floor with the easy maintenance of a lacquered wood floor, and we love it…

A wooden floor in industrial kitchen

The Grace collection from Tarkett consists of one-strip flooring in two different widths, three-strip flooring, and floors with basketweave pattern, with a total offering of 12 floors in six colours with warm, natural and harmonious tones that are perfect for residential interiors, light traffic workplaces and hospitality areas.

In the Grace collection, the super-matt finish, soft brushing, and sheer shades work together to create a floor that stays beautiful 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 matt finish, where neither glare nor glitter occurs in the wood’s texture, 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. Additionally, Grace can easily be revived by sanding and refinishing when the flooring eventually ages.

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.
