SOLON, OH, AUGUST 20, 2020 — Tarkett, a worldwide leader in innovative and
sustainable flooring, is expanding its collection of ProGen™ rigid core luxury
vinyl tiles and planks with nine new stone designs. The new designs join 22
high-definition wood designs, giving homeowners a broader range of design
options with the lifeproof performance benefits the collection is known for.
“ProGen delivers on the benefits homeowners care about most when it comes to
their flooring—it’s durable enough to stand up to pets, kids, and anything else
life throws at it, and is available in on-trend colors and styles that
complement any taste,” said Sharee Thorton, product manager. “We’re excited to
introduce our newest stone designs, which add an element of modern style that is
sure to look great in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, or other high-traffic
areas of the home.”
ProGen is engineered to perform radically better than the leading competitive

stable, waterproof and easy to install, making it an ideal way to bring modern
design into any room—including three-season rooms that experience extreme
temperature changes, as well as areas most prone to spills and moisture.
The compact design and rigid core technology of ProGen makes it highly
resistant to indentations from drops, high heels and heavy furniture, while also
offering a sleek profile and easier installation. The Uniclic® system makes
installation fast and easy for professionals or DIYers, requiring only basic
