SPECIFi Offers Industry Leading Designs To Meet Consumer Performance Needs For Any Budget
Tarkett's SPECIFi System Combines Style with Budget for the Perfect Solution in Flooring
Tarkett, the leading provider of innovative and sustainable flooring, is pleased to announce another solution for improving the flooring selection process. All too often, shoppers think they have found the ideal flooring to meet their design preferences, only to discover it may not be a reasonable option for their performance or budget considerations. As part of its unique iSelect floor shopping experience, Tarkett is introducing the new SPECIFi collection. iSelect is a customer-focused system that empowers consumers to select flooring that meets all their needs, from design to performance to budget and even health.
To create the SPECIFi system, Tarkett identified 17 of its most popular FiberFloor® designs and produced each in four different constructions and warranty levels. SPECIFi is about having the flooring design you want in the performance and budget level you need.
“We heard a common story from flooring shoppers and retailers, in which people would fall in love with a certain design, only to discover they couldn’t afford it, or it wouldn’t be durable enough for their lifestyle,” explained Bruce Ziegler, Director of Product Management. “We created the Tarkett SPECIFi collection because a flooring shopper should never feel like they need to sacrifice design for budget or performance needs. Tarkett promises customers solutions to meet all their needs and SPECIFi delivers that promise.”
Available in warm, comfortable and coordinating designs, the product is perfect for expressing personality and style. SPECIFi’s four collections include: Liftetime®, Magnitude™, Easy Living™, and Fresh Start™.
Designed with tough, resilient wear layers that stand up to real-life water, moisture, scuffs, scratches and indentations, FiberFloor is an all-in-one solution. All Tarkett FiberFloor collections in SPECIFi are also CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
Lifetime Collection is the best overall flooring with Tarkett's most durable wear layer. It's perfect for high traffic areas where indentation resistance is needed. Lifetime features a lifetime limited residential warranty and a 10-year light commercial warranty.
