  • Full Transparency

    At Forbo we believe an open, honest and transparent approach to demonstrating a sustainable attitude is the only way to show the credits we attribute to our products and processes. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a recognised methodology we use to determine and measure the impact on the environment of any product during its creation, use and what remains when a product reaches its end of life by measuring a set number of impact categories. 

    The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is the outcome of the LCA, which is published in a 3rd party verified report on a particular product. The EPD for Marmoleum verifies our claims and gives transparent insights into our test results and measurements.

    Environmental Stewardship
    Marmoleum is manufactured in a state-of-the-art environment where the traditional manufacturing process has been automated in efficient production lines that are run entirely on green electricity. At Forbo, we actively steer our processes toward continuous improvement, maximizing the use of recycled content in our Marmoleum and working with green design principles whenever new designs or structures are developed.

    Marmoleum installation waste take-back schemes
    In many of our markets we have now introduced a network to take make material from previous installations. The cuts and scraps are collected and returned to our factory. On a smaller scale, in our sampling, we take the same approach. This way, we can do our best to assure full-circle recycling even at points where our product reaches its end of life state.

    Labels and Certification, recognition that goes a long way
    Marmoleum is among the most rewarded and environmentally sound floor covering. We value all our labels, whether it’s the internationally recognised Swan label, the blue Angel certification, the North American Sequoia Seal or more specific labels like Nature Plus or the Austrian environmental label. Next to labels and certification, Marmoleum brings real benefits when measured against BRE or LEED certifications. Here, using a Marmoleum floor helps you in the overall rating of your building.

  • A choice, not a compromise

    Flotex is a high tech textile which brings together the world of resilient and textiles connecting key performance indicators into one single product, that
    delivers all you can expect from a proven innovative flooring solution.

    Durable and comfortable
    Discover the toughness and durability of Flotex which comes as a result of the 80 million nylon 6.6. fibers per square meter, while experiencing the quietness and comfort normally only associated with a carpet as a result of the impervious cushioned backing.

    Quiet yet Hygienic
    The nylon fibers not only perform in sound absorption and comfort, they also capture allergens and fine dust from the air, all of which they effortlessly release in any cleaning action in both dry and wet conditions. Through its construction Flotex is protected against mold and odor’s whilst keeping up its appearance, as the floor restores to mint condition after every cleaning action.

    Warm while washable
    Simple every day vacuuming removes any dirt or dust trapped in the dense nylon surface. However steam cleaning or deeper mechanical cleaning can also be used after heavy soiling, requiring a minimum of traditional detergents. Simple cleaning action already restores Flotex to its original appearance. The wide array of colors and designs in which Flotex is offered, remain as vibrant and lively as the day the floor was installed.

    Safe but sound absorbing
    Flotex provides both low in-room impact noise performance (class A) as well as good impact sound reduction (>20dB), meaning a quiet room and a quiet building. Flotex also meets the HSE wet and dry slip resistance classifications for use of flat surfaces and ramps.
