We recommend our Tarkett adhesive Embond 170 or Tarkospray. Please contact our customer service for more information.
Tarkett wood, vinyl and linoleum flooring can all be installed over underfloor heating. The guideline for linoleum and vinyl is that it cannot exceed 27ºc on the surface in contact with the back of the vinyl or adhesive layer. With wood it cannot exceed 27ºc on the top of the wood flooring. Laminate flooring is suitable for installation on top of underfloor heating systems provided that the heating element is embedded into concrete or any other sub floor. Laminate flooring is not suitable for installation on top of any underfloor heating foil installed directly on concrete or any other sub floor unless otherwise specified by the underfloor heating manufacturer. Laminate flooring surface temperature should never exceed 28°C.
Vinyl can be installed in conservatories providing it is fully adhered with a high temperature adhesive. Note however that any floorcovering will fade quicker in high ultraviolet light, e.g the sunlight found in conservatories. Please contact our customer service for more information.
Vinyl and linoleum can be glued to a chipboard subfloor if it is untreated. However, chipboard is generally treated or weatherproofed making adhesion nearly impossible. Please contact our customer service if you require further advice on what adhesives work best with a chipboard subfloor.
We support sustainable forestry and biodiversity, and more than 60% of our wood is FSC or PEFC certified.
Vinyl floors are totally adapted for installation in bathrooms and restrooms. However, we do not recommend installing smooth vinyl in toilets. Instead, choose a vinyl floor with a secure grip to prevent slipping. Our Safetred Ion Contrast/Linen, Ceramic, Natural, Spectrum, Universal, Wood and Granit Safe T are all excellent choices.
We do not recommend to install iD products (luxury vinyl tiles) in bathrooms and restrooms because of the insufficient degree of slip resistance to meet regulatory standards.
It depends on the type of vinyl you are installing. Please contact our customer service for further advice.
Vinyl flooring does not have TOG Ratings. For other flooring types, please speak with our customer service for more information.
No. We do not recommend the use of F Ball F44 for Tarkett commercial vinyl products.
In order to line mark our Omnisports and wood sports surfaces, we recommend the paint “Perfection 709” made by International Paints - Marnie Division (Tel: 02380 226 722).
In order to weld a rubber threshold strip to vinyl and linoleum, we recommend the use of a linoleum welding rod and do not recommend vinyl PVC weld.

The tub size is 15 litres, and the coverage is 75m2 per tub (5m2 per litre).
Yes, copper foil is needed for all 4 ranges.
Coving from acoustic vinyl is possible providing that the installation temperature is over 18°C. If there is trouble with forming the vinyl, small slits can be made in the foam backing at the cove former to ease forming. Please contact our customer service if you require further advice.
