IOBAC MagTabs Adhesive-free flooring installation on metal raised access flooring

We’re delighted that adhesive-free flooring installation has been recognised as being at the forefront of sustainability.


Floor coverings installed using adhesives can be difficult to reuse or recycle on uplift due to contamination from adhesives, resulting in floor coverings being sent for incineration or landfill.

Our MagTabs address this issue by enabling floor coverings to be affixed securely throughout the life of the installation, yet cleanly and easily uplifted.

This reversible fixing mechanism gives flooring a second life, vastly improving flooring circularity and making flooring manufacturers’ take-back schemes easier to implement.

Finalists and winners will be announced early in 2023 🤞
