Welcome to the new world of high performance sustainable floor coverings – and the Next Generation of Marmoleum. Forbo Flooring Systems’ Marmoleum stands for versatility, sustainability and durability. The new Marmoleum floor coverings range is the largest ever and gives specifiers access to a fascinating world of colour and design – all created to complement and enhance the interior of the buildings of today and tomorrow.
Next Generation Marmoleum combines design, ecological and economic values that help bring modern architecture to life.
The pure, natural characteristics of Next Generation Marmoleum make it ideal for specifiers seeking a high quality, long-lasting floor covering solution, as part of a sustainable building design. This is what makes Marmoleum special; it is the simple, natural ingredients that create the product and give it its unique performance attributes. Made from 97 per cent natural raw materials, 72 per cent rapidly renewable and 43 per cent recycled content, Marmoleum has a proven low environmental impact production process, according to independent Life Cycle Assessment criteria.
Next generation Marmoleum comprises four new collections, which deliver new design directions with a wide choice of colour combinations for rich, warm, refined and contemporary looks. The latest concept draws together input from a variety of architectural and designer’s evaluations based on the colouring, balance and structure of new designs. This interaction provided novel insights, for example, linearity is a modern and outspoken trend that Forbo has refined and brought up to the colour spectrum of the 21st century with new Striato designs.
The Marmoleum Marbled Collection includes stimulating new brights and bolds, while the Solid range has been substantially extended to offer an extensive choice of understated, neutral colourway options. The Linear section makes for a strong design statement, whereas the Marmoleum Patterned Collection includes both stunning monochromatic tones and more outspoken colours for playful combinations.
The breadth of shades available is completely unrivalled. The Marmoleum colour spectrum is unique due to the manufacturing process that subtly creates the structure of the design, continually fashioning random, all-over patterns that never show any repeat – in turn providing the natural charm of any Marmoleum floor.
With a life expectancy of at least 30 years, Next Generation Marmoleum now includes Topshield2, a double layer water-based finish, delivering exceptional floor performance. This unique finish provides a highly effective protection against scuffing and dirt, whilst offering effective resistance to stains and chemicals, resulting in reduced cleaning and maintenance requirements.
Angus Fotheringhame, General Manager at Forbo Flooring Systems comments: “The classic surface of Marmoleum is even more relevant today as a result of its authenticity and versatility. It’s a product with a rich heritage and a bright sustainable future. By choosing Marmoleum you create better environments today, tomorrow, forever.”
