As part of the recent ASL US trade mission, our CEO Dr. John McKeon had the pleasure of meeting up with Bradley Gean, Social Media and E-Commerce Specialist (Residential) at Tarkett, at The International Surfaces Event (TISE) in Las Vegas. Their discussion centred around the clear and high demand for science-backed ‘healthier’ products that the consumer can trust will support a healthier indoor environment.

The newest addition to their portfolio of CERTIFIED products, Powerbond® RS flooring, is the world’s first soft surface flooring to be CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®. Powerbond RS is a hybrid resilient flooring, meaning it combines the look and feel of carpet with the durability and cleanability of a resilient surface.
At TISE, there was a palpable feel and interest in products that support health and well being, according to Bradley Gean, and consumers are increasingly associating asthma & allergy friendly® with health. The demand is high, and science-backed products are the ones to watch as consumers need certainty that the products they bring in to their homes keep the promises that they make. This is where credible science and third party certification, like the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program, come into play.
