Covid-19 - Social distancing

Social Distancing

The distancing society will remain for a while. How do you encourage people to hold the required distance? We are happy to advise you on how to redesign your space through permanent zoning.

Social distancing

Intro

We take our responsibility in all geographies by limiting the spread of the virus and protecting the health and safety of our customers, business partners and employees as much as possible. Our company strictly adheres at least by the rules issued by governments and local health authorities in all countries where we do business.

Social distancing will be a normal part of life for the period to come. To help people stay safe we have developed new products and inspiration. We are happy to advise you on how floors can help to hold the necessary distance.

Our customer service department and especially our 24/7 ForbOnline service has been proving very popular and will keep supporting you in all cases where you are able to proceed with your projects. Should you have any questions please contact your local account manager, customer contact or customer services departments worldwide.

Social distancing

Most shops open their doors after the Corona forced break, restaurants and hotels are allowed to receive guests again, with strict observance of the hygiene regulations. In order to keep the prescribed distance between customers, many stores have put temporary markings on the floor. This may be useful for now, but it is not a really permanent solution. The shoe soles of thousands of customers quickly destroys the markings, making it unusable.

If you think in long-term solutions, distance markers made of Marmoleum, Vinyl or Flotex can also be incorporated directly into the planning and design. The materials are individually cut on site and firmly integrated into the floor. They are robust, easy to clean and even have antibacterial effects in the case of Marmoleum.

Covid-19 flooring solutions

As the lockdown eases and local governments have set rules how countries can slowly and safely ‘open up’ again, it’s becoming obvious that social distancing will be a normal part of life for a longer period of time.

To help people to stay safe by adopting this new behaviour, we have developed some products and offer you solutions how to deal with this and also have some fun in your floor design.

Coral Logo Entrance Mats

We've designed a range of entrance mats which we hope will act as a gentle reminder for people to keep their distance. There's a choice of four designs and they are offered at a special price as it's not our intention to make a profit from this but to support everyone's efforts to keep safe.
