INSTALL, the North American floorcovering installation training and certification organization, and Teknoflor, the source for superior commercial resilient flooring, are growing their partnership to guarantee that high-performance flooring products are installed by skilled, knowledgeable workers, trained to meet exacting industry standards for excellence and precision. 

“A high-quality product is not complete without a high-quality installation, and Teknoflor’s partnership with INSTALL ensures delivery of superior flooring installations,” said John T. McGrath Jr., executive director of INSTALL. “This specification requires that Teknoflor product installation is completed by flooring professionals who have received industry-leading training and have earned the appropriate certifications.” 

Teknoflor’s new specification language will take effect [immediately] and reads as follows:

“Installer Qualifications: Company specializing in installation, must have a minimum of four (4) years experience and employs flooring installers who have retained, and currently hold, a Teknoflor, INSTALL, or a comparable certification.”

“Having worked closely with INSTALL for 20 years, I know that INSTALL contractors execute every job correctly, every time,” said Mark Olsen, technical services manager, Teknoflor. “Our luxury PVC-free resilient flooring requires exacting installation, and Teknoflor is ensuring that our high standards are met by choosing to implement INSTALL certification standards into our master specifications.”
