Facilitating flooring reuse in a wide range of built environments

Double-sided dry-tack adhesive tabs for cleanly fixing and uplifting carpet, LVT and woven vinyl tiles on most prepared sub-floors.

Now we’ve got all building environments covered



We’ve expanded our tab installation family to cover a wider range of sub-floors and built environments.

Ultra thin, double-sided dry-tack tabs, IOBAC Tab-It cleanly and securely affixes carpet tiles, +4mm Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT), and woven vinyl tiles onto most common prepared
sub-floors, including:

  • non-metal raised access floors including calcium sulphate, aluminium and wood
  • concrete/polished concrete
  • wood
  • ceramic
  • vinyl/lino/VCT

These little squares strongly secure floor coverings, even in heavy footfall spaces, using the same proven chemistry as our IOBAC MagTabs®, which is approved for use with flooring brands including Shaw ContractForboBurmatexntgrate, Tarkett, Desso, Ege Carpets, BalsanBolonBLOQ , Milliken, Modulyss and Interface.

And in a first for the industry, Shaw Contract EMEA have gone one step further by offering a 15-year warranty for its carpet tiles when installed using our MagTabs and Tab-It®including the re-installation of the tiles in a second location.

Hard to Shift, Yet Easy to Lift – Making Flooring Reuse A Reality


Flooring tiles are cleanly and easily uplifted, with no contamination of the flooring tile or sub-floor.

Flooring can then be easily reused, or recycled via the flooring manufacturer’s take-back scheme.

The sub-floor assets are protected and immediately ready for the next install, with no remedial time or costs required.
