Care home flooring specialist, Forbo Flooring Systems, has underlined its commitment to sustainability and minimising the environmental impact of its products and processes.
Forbo’s linoleum product, Marmoleum, is CO2 neutral without carbon offset and is manufactured from 97% natural raw materials – using linseed instead of plastics.
Mark Bauer, Environmental Specialist at Forbo Flooring Systems, said: “Sustainability is no longer just for a select number of projects. The industry as a whole needs to make better, more environmentally conscious choices to help reduce the impact of our buildings.
“A fundamental part of this is moving products, processes and ultimately buildings towards carbon neutrality through the use of natural renewable materials and energy. We are proud to have achieved this with products from our Marmoleum range and will continue to look for further ways to improve the sustainability of our flooring solutions.”
In addition to its sustainability, Marmoleum offers design freedom and choice with over 300 colours and designs to choose from.
It is also phthalate free for improved air quality and Allergy UK-approved.
All Marmoleum products also feature the Forbo Topshield high-performance UV finish, which prevents staining, scuffing and scratching for a longer lasting finish as well as easier cleaning and maintenance.
