Tarkett North America has refreshed and expanded its iQ Granit collection and introduced the coordinating iQ Eminent collection within their high-performance homogeneous vinyl sheet and tile products. Designed with healthcare spaces in mind, Tarkett’s iQ products are low-maintenance, durable enough to maintain their performance under high-traffic wear and contribute to healthy, rejuvenating indoor environments.
“Created in Ronneby, Sweden, iQ Granit and iQ Eminent embody the very best of Scandinavian design,” said Janette Murray, senior design manager for Tarkett North America. “Every detail has a purpose, from superior infection control and softened acoustics options, to state-of-the-art technology that promises zero refinishing for the life of the floor. With organic patterns and a warm color palette, the collection is continually restored with a simple dry buffing—so your floor, your space and your people can maintain top performance.”
iQ Granit’s soft, tonal chip designs are inspired by the beauty and resilience of natural stone. The 43 available colorways from iQ Granit and iQ Granit Sense flow together for a palette that helps us retreat, reflect, and recharge. iQ Granit Sense is more tonal, while iQ Granit offers more color variation in its visual accents. iQ Granit Acoustic adds impact sound reduction, further enhancing spaces where quiet reflection and peaceful healing are desired.
New to the North American market in the expanded collection are iQ Eminent & iQ Eminent Unisense™—two visuals with differing scales that offer greater color contrast and the handcrafted look of terrazzo. These collections offer a smaller, more refined palette of 25 colorways that coordinate with iQ Granit to enhance wayfinding and creative layouts.
Beyond their soothing aesthetics, Tarkett’s iQ homogeneous vinyl sheet products are scientifically engineered to prevent the spread of infection, simplify care and maintenance, and support better indoor air quality. Their proprietary iQ construction gives all Tarkett iQ products superior wear, stain, and abrasion resistance, as well as the ability to retain their original beauty over time with nothing more than an occasional dry buff – no wax or finish needed for the life of the floor.
This advanced composition also meets all the requirements for reducing the spread of pathogens, while maximizing return on investment. Installed with heat-welded seams, iQ homogeneous vinyl sheet floors have a continuous, scratch-resistant surface that reduces spaces that could potentially harbor mold or pathogens. Additionally, iQ’s flexible material can be formed to create an integral cove base between the floor and wall with a gentle radius to prevent accumulation of dust and dirt.
