Home News Beaulieu Canada, TacFast form partnership

ACTON VALE, QUEBEC, CANADA— Beaulieu Canada and TacFast Systems International are partnering to provide a totally adhesive-free, floating carpet installation system.

Beaulieu Canada will market and sell TacFast LocPlate products that feature a free-floating substrate and carpet products with a loop fabric covering the underside. The flooring surface engages the hooks and loops creating a mechanical bond that holds the flooring surface in place securely, yet is also releasable.

The LocPlate product line is a modular floor that can be installed over any subfloor. “Adding a loop to the underside of our carpet broadens our product offerings as we will offer our entire commercial broadloom line with TacFast,” said Marcel Poirier, vice president commercial business, Beaulieu Canada.

The product has already been a hit in the U.S., having captured a Product Innovations Award grand prize in the environmental solutions category at NeoCon in June. “But, we are particularly excited to be launching our first made-in-Canada carpet tile which will be available in early 2011. All of our TacFast-compatible carpet tiles will be up to 70% lighter than any other carpet tile on the market, making a significant contribution to our ongoing environmental stewardship.”

Wendy Berney, senior vice president, sales and marketing, TacFast, added, “The environmentally conscientious substrate eliminates the need for adhesives, while hook and loop engagement simplifies repairs and retrofits to keep floors looking new and clean.”
