With millions of square metres of our Marmoleum floor coverings installed in hospitals across the world, Forbo is at the forefront when it comes to understanding the needs and concerns of the healthcare marketplace.
Hospitals benefit from using Marmoleum as a hygienic floor covering solution that is easy to clean and maintain as well as durable, safe and comfortable for both wheeled and foot traffic.

An inherent property of the product, the anti-bacterial qualities of Marmoleum won't diminish over time, giving peace of mind and constant protection from the moment it is installed.
