SOLON, OHIO, July 21, 2019 — Tarkett, a worldwide leader in innovative and sustainable flooring and sports surface solutions, announces the expansion of its Masquerade® collection of wall finishing borders. With eight new designs and seven new profiles, the brand has more than doubled its creative options within the series.
Masquerade designs are created using the latest high-definition digital printing technology, allowing a broader range of color, longer pattern repeats, and crisp, realistic detail. A total of 18 visuals are now available within the standard running line.
In addition to these 18 standard visuals, Tarkett can also produce a fully customized finishing border for clients with more specific needs. Designers can choose from nine available profiles, and work with a Tarkett representative to submit a fabric swatch, material sample or digital image to be replicated onto the Masquerade material.
The number of available profiles have expanded as well, from two to nine. Options now include six wall bases (four are new), one shoe moulding (new) and two quarter rounds (new).
Masquerade wall finishing borders are made with sustainable rubber, a material that reduces the need to harvest lumber, and easily conforms to the curves and irregular surfaces of nearly any wall. These borders are designed to drastically reduce installation and maintenance costs by:
• Eliminating priming, painting and finishing
• Resisting scratches, dents and stains
• Not fading, splintering, chipping, or absorbing liquids
• Installing with regular cove base adhesive
“The Masquerade collection of wall finishing borders delivers beautifully realistic designs, which are made possible by Tarkett’s state-of-the-art digital printing technology. This full palette of stunning visuals adds the perfect finishing touch to sophisticated interior designs, while supporting a client’s long-term objectives for simple care and maintenance,” said Sharon Gallagher, product manager for Tarkett North America.
