About Under control

Keep the environment Under Control

For example in critical industrial environments where ESD can cause large scale damage, a flooring solution with permanent ESD properties can help to avoid costs from product failure, processing issues, equipment malfunction or hygienic problems.

The floor can contribute to the prevention of unwanted electrostatic build-up and discharges. A floor can also help to keep a controlled environment clean by limiting the particle and TVOC emission from the floor covering.

ESD & cleanroom flooring solutions can also be part of ensuring a safe environment in sensitive healthcare facilities and areas. Static discharges can be unpleasant for patients and employees and sensitive medical devices can be negatively influenced by static charges.

A solution that effectively protects the people and equipment against static events is required. Health and hygiene are crucial. A durable, stain-resistant, highly stable and indentation resistant flooring solution is needed.

All the collections from Forbo that offer a solution for most demanding controlled environments are bundled in one portfolio, Forbo's "Under Control" portfolio, which refers to what is important to the customer: making sure that everything in the environment is controlled. Collections included are:

• Colorex SD | EC | Plus (tiles)
• Sphera SD | EC (sheet)
• Marmoleum Ohmex (sheet)
