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

and can be used as an overlay system over existing flooring.

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.
