Protect newly laid floors

Did you know as much as 80% of dirt entering a building is brought by foot traffic? Investing in a high quality entrance flooring system such as Forbo’s Coral, an international market leader in textile entrance flooring for almost 50 years!

Coral has been proven to stop up to 95% of dirt and moisture and reduce cleaning times of floor covering by up to 65%!

Protect newly laid floors with Coral entrance flooring/matting

Floorcare advice

Note: As with all newly installed floor coverings Marmoleum should be protected from heavy traffic, particularly high point load wheeled traffic, for 72 hours and must not be washed for 48 hours after installation.

Note: Avoid the use of highly alkaline products (pH >10). Products, such as strippers and heavy-duty cleaners, can be harmful to people, to the environment and/or to the finish or even to the flooring itself.

Do not take the risk; safe and good alternatives are available for every necessary action. Forbo FloorCare products all fall within a safe pH-range, for other brands consult the supplier.

Marmoweld_Multi for Marmoleum floors

To weld or not to weld?

In most of the cases welding a Marmoleum floor is not required. Skilled installers can make perfect joints without using a welding cord. However, sometimes local laws or regulations could make that you need to make sure you put a welding cord between two sheets.

For both situations, Forbo Flooring offers the best solutions. Think about installation guides, instruction videos and welding rods specifically developed for Marmoleum floors.

Visit our Net fit or welding installation page to get more information.

How to weld linoleum flooring

After installing the floor you have the option to weld the seams. This is in many cases not really necessary but some cases ask for it. In this instruction video, we show you how to weld properly.

Wall Installation

Marmoleum Sheet Wall Installation

Marmoleum are available in rolls 2.00 metres wide and up to 34 lineal metres in length and can be installed with the roll lengths aligned either vertically or horizontally.

Vertical seams can be avoided in most cases with horizontal alignment, but longer lengths may be challenging to install. Material waste is often reduced with vertical alignment.

Heat welding of the seams is not necessary; however external abutments can be covered with a contrasting cover strip or in such cases vertical heat welding may be required.
