As part of its Allura Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) collection refresh, Forbo Flooring Systems has developed a new offering specifically designed for flooring contractors. The specially selected collection will provide contractors with a range of ‘off the shelf’ Allura options, available in a variety of installation constructions to ensure there is a solution for all applications.
Forbo understands the frustrations flooring contractors may face when looking to find the perfect flooring solution for their customers, which not only meets their design brief and is readily available, but also offers a range of installation methods to meet the conditions of the subfloor. However, with Forbo’s new Allura collection this is no longer the case.
Forbo are offering 42 of their most popular design options from the newly refreshed Allura range, including the new oxidised strata and shell twine designs, along with established favourites such as the classic natural oak and whitewash elegant oak aesthetics – all of which are readily available for orders up to 500m2. All 42 options can be installed either fully adhered or using the tackified installation method; and 20 of the 42 items can be installed using all three installation methods: fully adhered, tackified and click-connected adhesive free – meaning there is an option for all application types.
The variety of installation methods available, plus the range of modern designs, will allow contractors to present the book to their client to choose a design, without having to worry about the actual installation requirements or availability.
Part of Forbo’s wider refresh of its Allura portfolio, Karen Wilding, Marketing Communications Manager from Forbo Flooring Systems, explains further here: “With the refresh of our commercial Allura collection, we wanted to make sure we were providing contractors with a range of options to choose from, which helps them to meet both installation and design requirements on all projects with the confidence that they can order it without delay, which is why we curated this specially selected collection.
“Not only this, but we also made some exciting improvements to our existing Allura collection, such as updating our Flex collection – now named Flex II – which sees the inclusion of a new double glass fibre layer for better stability and allows for completely adhesive free installation in areas up to 150m2. As part of Forbo’s Fast Flooring family of adhesive free solutions, Flex II joins our Allura Click Pro and Allura Puzzle collections, where the tiles can be easily ‘connected together’. This allows contractors to offer their clients a solution that can be used for large projects, without the need for adhesives, helping to minimise disruption and down time.”
In the development of the new Allura collection, Forbo’s worked continuously to increase the sustainability of the portfolio. A 100% phthalate free, REACH* compliant product, Allura is produced in Europe using 100% green electricity and with low product emission levels that are below the industry average. With excellent dimensional stability ensuring a safe and hygienic flooring, the superior embossed lacquering system guarantees long lasting appearance retention and improves resistance to stains and scratches.
