1. 'Climb' Low-VOC Adhesive | Bostik

Climb, a one-component non-sag adhesive from Bostik, has been formulated for hardwood flooring, planks, and blocks on interior, above-grade walls and installation of stair tread caps. The adhesive cures quickly and is designed not to bond with most finishes on pre-finished hardwood, tread caps, or risers. Applications include solid or engineered hardwood, bamboo installed on plywood, OSB, existing wood floor treads and risers, drywall, brick, cinder block, and concrete for interior walls. Climb has 0% solvents and is low in VOCs and odor.

 

2. NORAment arago premium rubber floor covering | Nora Systems, Inc.

Editor's Pick

Norament Arago rubber floor covering balances elemental textures with modern sustainable design. Layered geometrical forms in cool shades of gray reflect aesthetic tones found in nature. Recommended for healthcare and education public spaces with high foot traffic. Slip resistant, ultra-durable surface. Greenguard Gold Certified.

 

3. Ditra Heat Duo Membrane | Schulter Systems

Ditra Heat Duo membrane from Schluter Systems reduces sound transmission while also warming the floor and supporting the covering to ensure lasting installation. The system produces an increase in impact insulation class of 50 to a concrete floor slab. Recommended for ceramic and stone tile floor installations in multistory residential construction, it is the first electric floor warming system with an integrated thermal break that allows the system to warm tiled floors up to 70% faster over concrete substrates by directing heat to the tile, not the subfloor.

Ditra Heat Duo membrane performs four essential functions for a lasting tile floor installation: 1) uncoupling to prevent cracks in tiles and grout, 2) waterproofing to protect areas beneath the tile from moisture, 3) vapor management to provide a route for excess moisture to escape the substrate without damaging the tile, and 4) support and load distribution to keep the tile covering intact in the event of heavy foot traffic.

 

4. spartacote flex pure clinical plus concrete coating | Laticrete

The antimicrobial technology behind this specialty concrete coating system makes it particularly suitable to use in hospitals, pharmaceutical facilities, veterinary clinics, research labs, clean rooms, prisons, locker rooms, restrooms, and food and beverage processing facilities. Exhibits >99% reduction in staph and salmonella over a 24-hour period vs. standard floor coating, says the manufacturer.

 

5. Lineate enhanced resilient tile from mohawk group | Mohawk

Editor's Pick

The Lineate enhanced resilient tile collection was inspired by two of the hottest trends in surface visuals: ombré/gradient and striated textile looks. Cool and warm neutrals are combined with on-trend color pops and a linear texture. Loose lay construction allows for quick installation. The product is twice as thick as standard LVT. An inherent acoustical inner layer construction eliminates the need for underlayment.
