Tarkett's Azrock collection of 1/8" gauge commercial vct has been awarded NSF/ANSI 332 Gold Level certification from UL Environment Inc., an Underwriter’s Laboratory company.

The NSF/ANSI 332 Sustainability Assessment Standard for Resilient Floor Coverings was created to identify the environmental performance and sustainability attributes of products, and to provide a method of tracking incremental changes to the products' sustainability profile. Using a point-based system, the NSF 332 standard measures five key areas: Product design, manufacturing, long-term value, corporate governance and innovation. A product may achieve up to 100 possible points, and based on point values, can be awarded Conformant, Silver, Gold and Platinum level certifications.

“We continue to improve our product development in terms of quality and sustainability,” said Diane Martel, vp environmental planning and strategy for Tarkett North America. “This certification is one more way we can be sure that we are delivering the best floors with the best materials available.”
