A common complaint from end-users concerns noise pollution from adjacent premises. Better sound comfort is a frequent requirement. Bad flooring conditions can also lead to strain on people’s bodies. Today, a good indoor environment includes sound comfort and walking comfort.
iQ Granit Acoustic is a special floorcovering for extra comfort and good impact sound values. It increases comfort underfoot and greatly reduces sound transmission, making it the perfect choice for school corridors, retirement facilities or other health care areas where noise reduction is required.
The flooring material has a foam interlayer to reduce sound transmission. The interlayer also absorbs shocks, which reduces the strain on people’s joints and backs.
iQ Granit Acoustic is coordinated with the extended Granit family of specialist flooring – iQ Granit 62 colour core range, iQ Granit acoustic, iQ Granit SD, iQ Toro SC and Granit Safe.T for high level underfoot safety and Granit Multisafe, part of Tarkett's complete wetroom solution with colour coordinated wall coverings.e. It offers the same great advantages as iQ Granit, in terms of wear resistance, low maintenance and life cycle cost. Architects and designers can create total solutions in which acoustically demanding and other areas harmonise without compromising on performance. View less

TARKETT’S BALANCED CHOICE The iQ range is part of Tarkett’s choice of sustainable solutions. It is an integrated system that allows for balancing all the competing needs, while making choices that are truly sustainable and work together aesthetically.
Better Raw Materials Tarkett’s iQ products are based on up to 59 % natural raw materials such as salt and mineral fillers. We use local suppliers as much as we can, to reduce the environmental impact from transportation.
Resource Stewardship Tarkett’s iQ range is produced in Ronneby, Sweden. The factory has an environmental management system (ISO 14001) and has continuously reduced its environmental impact since 2003: 54% reduction of total amount of waste produced in the factory 60% reduction of VOC emissions. The factory manages water consumption via a closed loop and 53% of the energy used comes from renewable sources (hydro power, wind power, bio fuels) As for all Tarkett sites, the Ronneby site is assessed from an environmental point of view by an external auditor every two years. No risks were identified in the Ronneby site during 2009.
People-friendly Spaces Tarkett’s iQ range delivers valuable health, hygiene and welfare benefits: No need for polish or wax, for ever, due to the unique Surface Restoration properties. This reduces the strain on cleaning staff and minimises the need for water, detergent and energy for cleaning and maintenance. Low-cost cleaning and maintenance with savings in excess of 30 % give the market’s best Life Cycle Cost and a measurable enhanced ROI. Very low VOC emissions contributing to good indoor air quality: For the iQ range an average <20 μg/m3 at 28 days – 50 times below the European Standard (1000 μg/m3).
Reuse and Recycle Tarkett was one of the first flooring companies to recycle post-production waste and remains the industry leader. During 2008, 411 tons of flooring material was collected through out Europe and recycled at the Ronneby site. The IQ range produced at Ronneby on average contains: 25,5% combined post-production/post-installation waste The use of post production material has increased by 26% since 2003.
