Tarkett - flooring in retail and shopping areas
WITH Cementi Click, Tarkett says it’s introducing a category of mineral flooring tiles made of authentic cement.
‘Tarkett presents a new innovation by introducing a category of premium mineral tiles and planks for architectural spaces - Cementi Click,’ says the company. ‘Produced from 95% clay, cement’s main composite, Cementi Click boasts the look and feel of this raw modern material, thus embodying the timeless elegance of concrete art in architecture.’
The collection features a range of stone and graphical designs. ‘Subtle marble, ethereal decors, and natural clay tone effects create a pure and refined architectural atmosphere for designers and architects looking to create inspirational spaces from mineral textures,’ says Tarkett.
‘Easy and quick to install, resistant, Cementi Click also meets the increasingly demanding needs of the industry to save time when renovating,’ says Tarkett. ‘Cementi click provides the ideal solution for store, restaurant and hotel owners alike.’
‘Authentic mineral design’ Made from mineral material composed of 95% clay, the collection includes what Tarkett describes as a timeless, elegant choice of concrete, stone, wood and graphical elements.
‘The overlapping hues and rugged patterns of the clay bring character and authenticity, while the matt surface and natural tones give the product that look and feel so typical of ceramic tiles. Four concrete shades, available in warm and cool grey, four stone, five wood designs and 10 graphical decors can be mixed and matched, leaving architects free to create innovative and unique flooring layouts.’
‘Renovation time is of the essence’ Tarkett says Cementi Click uses a click system technology to ensure quick and easy installation and removal.
‘Ready for immediate use, Cementi Click requires no gluing, drying, and can be installed over all substrates including ceramics, without having to prepare the floor in advance. This drastically reduces downtime and costs for stores, shops and hotels.’
Cementi Click has the look and feel of a ceramic floor, says Tarkett, but the added advantages of the click system provide the optimal solution for those looking to combine design and raw material with easy installation.
‘Rigid, stable, resistant’ Retail, restaurants and hotels welcome daily influxes of customers and deliveries. ‘Highly resistant to temperature and humidity variation, Cementi Click is ideal for winter gardens and store fronts and doesn’t require expansion gaps for large surface installations,’ says Tarkett.
‘It’s also specially conceived for high traffic areas, and thus resists scratches, scuffs, indentations and abrasions caused by daily wear and tear. Cementi Click is resistant to water ingress, a liquid sealant solution ensures 100% water-tightness installation. Furthermore, innovative PUR surface treatment allows for a chemical-free maintenance, thus using little water over its lifespan.’
‘Sustainable, designed for life and for closed-loop recycling’ Cementi Click has been designed for life, claims Tarkett, pointing out the following:
Naturally phthalate-free and with total volatile organic compounds emissions below 10 µg/m3 (100 times below European standards), this flooring is suitable for creating healthy interiors that also contribute to good indoor air quality.
Made of 95% natural mineral elements, including materials abundant in nature, and produced with 100% of renewable energy and no water, Cementi Click respects Earth’s natural capital.
Cementi Click has been designed for closed-loop recycling, says Tarkett. ‘Eligible for Tarkett’s Restart program, Cementi Click can be collected after use and sent back to the manufacturing site to be re-engineered as a new product.’
