    About Marmoleum FR²

    Infection control & Allergy UK
    Independent testing by the University of Glasgow has proved that Marmoleum has a unique suitability for a diverse range of environments where hygiene and control of bacteria are important.

    Topshield pro
    All Marmoleum FR² floors include Topshield pro, a double layer, UV-cured finish that is scratch and scuff resistant, easy to maintain and ensures long lasting appearance retention. With its natural bacteriostatic properties and resistance to chemicals, it is the ideal solution for heavy traffic rail vehicles.

    In the majority of installations, Marmoleum does not need to be welded as it is completely dimensionally stable and will not shrink after proper installation. However, if welding is the preferred option, there are matching welding cords for every Marmoleum FR² design.

    Forbo recognise that sometimes you may wish to create something totally unique, perhaps something specific to a particular project, such as signage to facilitate the restrictions and safety guidelines within the train. Whatever may be required, our in-house design team has skills and experience to turn ideas into reality.

    From an initial concept, detailed drawing, or computer file, our design team prepares a flooring design that is transferred electronically to the Aquajet cutting machines. These computer-controlled machines represent state-of the-art cutting technology and produce precision cut items accurate to a fraction of a millimetre.

    CO₂ Neutral

    CO₂ Neutral (from cradle to gate)

    Forbo’s Marmoleum FR² has been independently confirmed as CO₂ neutral floor covering in the cradle to gate phase of the product’s life cycle, without the need for offsetting.

    In simple terms, the CO₂ produced in the extraction, transportation and manufacturing process of Marmoleum FR² is balanced by the removal of CO₂ through the growing of its natural ingredients such as flax, jute and rosin.

    As such, Forbo's Marmoleum FR² is the best flooring choice for every sustainable interior. By using durable materials in your rail projects, you can also contribute to a better environment.

    Environmental leadership:

    • 71% natural raw materials
    • 40% recycled material content
    • 29% of raw materials are rapidly renewable

    A floor covering made from natural materials. Key materials from which Marmoleum FR² is created:

    • linseed oil from the seeds of the flax plants
    • fibres from jute stems
    • rosin from pine trees
    • upcycled wood residues from controlled sustainable forestry
    • limestone
    • pigments
