Tarkett Safetred Naturals and Wood - a design revolution
Tarkett, the industry leader in safety flooring, is pleased to introduce its latest innovation - the brand new Safetred Naturals and Wood Range. This contemporary safety floor collection offers a variety of Wood and Stone designs inspired by the subtle beauty of nature. Featuring a high quality print finish, the new collection offers a standard of realism never before seen in safety flooring.
Safetred Naturals offer a sophisticated stone design in nine different colourways, including limestone and anthracite, while the Wood collection features stunning surface finishes based on beech and oak. Flexible and easy to install, Safetred Naturals and Wood are designed for all heavy duty commercial applications where decorative slip resistance is required. Manufactured to EN13845, they provide sustainable R10 slip resistance.
As with all Tarkett products, Safetred Naturals and Wood feature a PUR surface protection. Safety Clean XP PUR offers improved stain resistance and ease of maintenance, helping to keep cleaning costs to a minimum and protect the environment by consuming less water, energy and detergents. They are made with a minimum 32% recycled material content and are 100% recyclable, further enhancing their environmental credentials. With very low VOC emissions, they also contribute to better interior air quality.
Safetred Naturals and Wood have been developed in response to a growing trend within the interior design market towards more natural, organic materials and surface finishes. Traditionally this meant installing a real wood or stone floor, or opting for an expensive luxury vinyl product - not a practical option for most commercial, public sector applications. Safetred Naturals and Wood provide the answer, offering exceptional realism in print quality while delivering all the benefits of a hard-wearing, slip resistant vinyl flooring.
Within healthcare facilities, natural daylight and views of the countryside are increasingly used to aid recovery. Safetred Naturals and Wood bring the outdoors in, creating a sense of calm and well-being for patients while ensuring a safe, healthy environment. Ideal for wards, bathrooms and corridors, the stone and wood designs can also create a less institutional feel in aged care facilities and residential nursing homes.
Visual stimulation and attractive design can aid learning and concentration in educational establishments, and Safetred Naturals and Wood bring a little bit of nature to the classroom. The choice of wood and stone effects can also be used to produce a dramatic impact or a sophisticated background for retail outlets and restaurants, where creating the right atmosphere is vital to the customer experience.
Domestic kitchens and bathrooms can be made more homely and welcoming with the modern, on-trend designs of the new collection. This is particularly useful for social housing where its slip resistant properties provide reassurance for tenants and landlords alike.
