Tarkett Expands Collection of Johnsonite Rubber Sports Flooring with New Triumph and Inertia® Patterns

Triumph – Olio®

Tarkett, a worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring, is expanding its Johnsonite multi-functional rubber sports flooring offering by adding new patterns to its Triumph and Inertia® collections.

The new patterns and colorways elevate the design of health and wellness spaces for every activity and fitness level. Olio® captures the fluid movement of oil and watercolor paints; Minerality emulates the color variation found in natural stone; and Speckled features small, multi-colored chips for subtle patterning.

“These new Triumph and Inertia patterns and colorways are designed to inspire next-level performance,” said Paul Young, senior vice president of product innovation and design for Tarkett North America. “With a coordinated color palette across patterns, the most physical spaces will be as beautiful as they are tough.”

In addition to the new patterns, Johnsonite’s industry-leading color technology and highly skilled color experts allow customers to precisely match any hue—including both the field and accent colors within Minerality, Olio, or Speckled—for a tailored palette.

With varying thicknesses and endurance levels, Johnsonite rubber sports flooring maximizes budget while covering every area of a wellness or athletic facility. Designed with a 3/8″ thickness to resist ice skates, golf cleats and dropped weights, Triumph is the toughest, most durable tile in the Johnsonite lineup. The additional cushion helps absorb noise and resist impact on joints, while a closed-cell surface makes these tiles easy to maintain. Offering the ideal balance between performance and price, Inertia’s ¼″ thickness is perfect for areas that don’t involve heavy foot traffic, free weights, or heavy exercise equipment, such as locker rooms, yoga studios and physical therapy centers. Inertia can be special ordered in 3/8” thickness as well, to help transition between spaces.

“From the yoga studio to the ice rink, our Johnsonite rubber sports flooring is designed to take a beating and still look great. With multiple thicknesses and endurance levels to choose from, Johnsonite rubber sports flooring maximizes budget while supporting every athlete, therapy patient, instructor, and traveler,” Young said. “It’s yet another reason our customers know that Made Right Means Johnsonite.”

Triumph is available in a Square Edge, Interlocking, or SlideLock® tile format, which allows a modular, glueless installation that provides access to mechanical systems beneath the floor. Inertia is available with either a Square Edge or Interlocking tile format and coordinates seamlessly with Triumph, its thicker counterpart. Both products are covered by a 5-year limited warranty.

Triumph is made with 40% recycled content and Inertia with 33%; both are Cradle to Cradle Certified® Silver. A product-specific Environmental Product Declaration for Johnsonite rubber sports flooring shows that its cradle to gate carbon footprint is up to 20% lower than equivalent products in the industry. Johnsonite products are made in the USA with 100% renewable energy. This non-PVC flooring is free of ortho-phthalates, PFAS, and antimicrobials. Triumph and Inertia are also FloorScore® certified for indoor air quality. At their end of use, Triumph and Inertia can be returned to a circular economy through Tarkett’s ReStart® take-back and recycling program.

In addition to Triumph and Inertia, the Johnsonite multi-functional sports flooring offering includes Replay®, a 3/8″-thick product available in rubber tile and sheet. With a chipped pattern in 12 colors, this economical choice is highly durable, impact-resistant, and shock absorbing.
