Allergy approved

Flotex and Marmoleum, both from Forbo Flooring Systems, have been awarded the prestigious “Seal of Approval” from Allergy UK as with the correct cleaning regime, they will not harbour allergens or house dust mites.

With a recent report by Allergy UK estimating that there are at least 12 million people “allergic to their own home” - with 58% citing house dust mites as a key trigger the importance of floor coverings in creating better indoor environments should not be overlooked. It’s also an issue that shouldn’t be ignored by educational, healthcare, office establishments, or social care - in fact any place where people are likely to spend a prolonged period.

Read our Work Fever Report, compiled in conjunction with Allergy UK, to find out how Marmoleum and Flotex can help create better indoor environments.

Marmoleum

Marmoleum has been awarded the Allergy UK Seal of Approval as, thanks to its smooth surface, it does not harbour house dust mites. With the correct, regular cleaning regime this can help to improve indoor environments.

Made using 97% natural raw materials such as linseed oil, rosin and limestone, Marmoleum has been awarded 12 independent Ecolabels - more than any other floor covering in the world.

Available in over 160 colours and in sheet and tile format, Marmoleum offers a wealth of opportunity to create stunning individual floors.

Flotex

Flotex has been awarded the Allergy UK Seal of Approval as, thanks to its unique nylon construction, allergens are trapped within its densely packed flocks, thereby reducing the number of allergens in the atmosphere. These are then safely released to standard vacuums on cleaning.

Offering the warmth and comfort of a carpet but with the durability and cleanability of a resilient floor covering, Flotex opens up a world of colour and design to allergy sufferers who previously had to steer clear of textile floor coverings.
