DESSO AirMaster Gold has been awarded Cradle to Cradle® Gold certification

DESSO AirMaster collection from Tarkett

Tarkett has been pursuing the principle of a genuine circular economy for over 10 years. The number of Cradle to Cradle-certified floor coverings for a wide variety of areas is growing steadily, including resilient and textile flooring as well as parquet.

The carpet tiles in the DESSO AirMaster Gold collection are a pioneer in this range. They combine material health (C2C Platinum) and special benefits for indoor air, as AirMaster carpet tiles have been proven to bind fine dust from indoor air to a particularly high degree. This quality, their allergy-friendliness and low VOC emissions led to them being awarded the GUI Gold Plus label.

DESSO AirMaster Gold contains more than 60% recycled ingredients and is 93% recyclable. The carpet tiles were designed from the outset for durability and subsequent recycling. The yarn can be separated from the bitumen-free backing in the factory recycling plant and both components can then be fully recycled in the closed loop. This is how a genuine circular economy based on the cradle-to-cradle principle already works today.

The AirMaster Gold collection offers three complementary designs: AirMaster Nazca Gold, AirMaster Salina Gold and AirMaster Tierra Gold. All three collections have been designed so that they can be perfectly combined with each other.
