Johnsonite Introduces the Ruby Collection


Resilient Floor that Balances Aesthetics and Value Without Sacrifice

CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio – As a part of its integrated and comprehensive product portfolio, Johnsonite®, the commercial arm of Tarkett and provider of the world’s most integrated high-performance flooring systems, has added to its industry-leading offering of flooring solutions by introducing the Ruby collection.
In any commercial space, flooring is the element that connects people to a diversity of interior environments with various purposes. Ruby, a heterogeneous vinyl sheet flooring solution, balances aesthetics, performance and value.
Best Value – Real ROI
For limited budgets, Ruby offers a new alternative of an exciting design aesthetic. An exceptionally hard-wearing reinforced polyurethane surface treatment and 28mil wear layer make this product one of the most resistant and durable commercial sheet vinyl products on the market. Whether you are looking for high chemical resistance or easy-to-clean properties, Ruby will help generate savings during the product’s lifetime by minimizing the use of water, detergents and energy for floor maintenance. The high wear-resistance and low-maintenance properties of Ruby, together with its versatile color offering, make this flooring ideal for use in heavy-traffic, commercial areas such as hospitals, schools, offices and retail applications.
A Safer Flooring Solution
Ruby has an added surface embossing to provide higher slip resistance to reduce the risk of slip and falls.

Designed to Inspire
Ruby is available in 20 colors, 10 rich wood and 10 all-over patterns, creating motivational and inspirational working environments for those in the space.

Environmental Sustainability
Ruby is manufactured in an ISO-14001 certified plant. It contains 30% Pre-Consumer recycled content. Ruby is Floorscore® certified with TVOC levels ≤ 100.g/m3 and therefore contributes to good indoor air quality.
The Ruby collection is a part of the Johnsonite flooring system, which includes rubber, linoleum, homogeneous and heterogeneous vinyl, stairwell solutions, finishing borders and transitions. Our integrated color palette runs across our full range of flooring solutions to help create efficiencies that pay-off for the end-user in real lifetime return. Every element is designed to work together functionally, aesthetically and logistically.
