Chagrin Falls, Ohio – To offer designers more choices when it comes to coordination and creativity, Tarkett, worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, introduces its I.D. Freedom™ Luxury Planks and Tiles. With dynamic design, durability and low environmental impact, I.D. Freedom is ideal for new and retrofit commercial areas including hospitality, retail, corporate, education and healthcare, among other applications. Freedom of ChoiceEverything Tarkett does is about creating balance and driving to develop the world’s most integrated commercial flooring system, which includes rubber, linoleum, homogeneous and heterogeneous vinyl, stairwell solutions, finishing borders and transitions. In creating balance, Tarkett establishes choice and flexibility. I.D. Freedom is the epitome of flexibility. With more than 90 SKUs, the designs live happily together – whether wood, stone or abstract – coordinating within I.D. Freedom, and also coordinating with designs from any of our company’s other flooring solutions. I.D. Freedom has extraordinary designs that feel natural, but like nothing nature could ever create. From the traditional woods and stones to visuals like rusted sandstone, bamboo stalks made of steel and tiger-striped wood grain, I.D. Freedom takes inspiration from unexpected elements and combines them to make naturally unnatural designs, delivering inspiration in a completely different way. “The luxury vinyl flooring market is crowded and with so many choices available selecting one product or brand can be challenging,” said Jeremy Salomon, Product Manager for Tarkett. “But with I.D. Freedom we have given designers the freedom to express their creativity. Our coordination capabilities are truly unmatched across all resilient flooring and accessories in the Tarkett commercial portfolio. It’s one of the reasons Tarkett is so successful, and we continue to build on that success by offering designers more choice through flooring systems like I.D. Freedom.” I.D. Freedom is a range of planks and tiles that come in a variety of sizes, allowing designers the freedom to be creative in conceptualizing interior spaces. Its range of looks includes wood, stone, and abstracts. Easy to install and maintain, I.D. Freedom is a flooring solution with an exceptionally hard-wearing reinforced polyurethane surface treatment, 20mil wear layer and 1/8” gauge. Also, I.D. Freedom is backed by a 10-year commercial warranty. Free to be SustainableTarkett’s commitment to circular or “closed loop” design has led to its offering of environmentally responsible products. I.D. Freedom contains 53 percent pre-consumer recycled content and is FloorScore® certified, contributing to good indoor air quality (IAQ).
