Lengthen the flooring lifecycle with TacFast®

Lengthen the flooring lifecycle with TacFast®


It goes without saying that lifecycle costs are the biggest bugbear of any flooring installation project. There are an seemingly unlimited amount of associated costs with floor fitting, but the revolutionary and fast-working TacFast® mechanical fix system can help to eliminate these, leading to more cost-effective installations great for budget-conscious and time-sensitive projects.

As Jonathan Stone, CCO, TacFast® Systems International, explains, “The anticipated costs associated with a flooring installation project can seem endless. Factors such as subfloor preparation, materials, labour, and even future replacement costs all contribute to the overall budget and can increase project costs massively. But with TacFast®, many of these issues are removed, allowing contractors, specifiers and end-users to save money without compromising on quality.”

A simple, speedy and cost-friendly way of fitting floors, TacFast® consists of a unique LocPlate™ interlocking disc and plate system that sits above the subfloor and a hook and loop fastening system that rapidly attaches the floorcovering. TacFast® often eradicates the need for expensive and extensive subfloor preparation, acting as a leveller and a DPM in one. In fact, the polypropylene LocPlate™ plates work as a water barrier to prevent any moisture migrating through the subfloor, avoiding any future expensive maintenance costs potentially caused by damp.

The TacFast® system does not require the use of adhesives with lengthy-drying times or unpleasant fumes, so it is instantly ready to go once the LocPlate™ surface is fitted. What’s more, projects requiring multi-floor installations will no longer require different preparation products, as TacFast® works with a whole host of flooring including wood and laminate planks, carpet tiles, ceramics, natural stone and LVT. It is also a great choice for refurbishments and even multi-location businesses, as flooring can be quickly removed, leaving the LocPlate® products installed and ready for the next floorcovering.

“The TacFast® system delivers such an extensive range of benefits which represent real savings for a variety of floorcovering installations,” continues Jonathan Stone. “It is an all-in-one solution that saves both time and money, evading the need for extensive and costly subfloor preparation, DPMs, levellers and adhesives. The fact that it is so convenient and easy to use contributes to its success, too. It can even be installed during business hours as disruption is minimal and speed is maximised, and the lack of fumes and odour usually caused by some adhesives means it can be used in public areas safely.”

Already hugely popular in the US, TacFast® has gained recognition for its speed, ease and cost-cutting benefits. A great option for a range of commercial installations, TacFast® Systems International has over 300 building-related patents to its name. Since 1998, the company has developed cutting-edge products that have been adopted by leading manufacturers. Focusing on pioneering R&D, TacFast® provides end users with an innovative installation solution.
