For areas that require a more specialized type of flooring, such as electro static discharge (ESD) protection or increased slip resistance, Forbo has a range of products that meet the very highest standards.
A demanding area
In sensitive hospital areas such as operating theatres, intensive care units and imaging diagnostic facilities, flooring presents its own unique challenges. Not only must it comply with stringent hygiene regulations to help prevent hospital acquired infections, it must also demonstrate that it meets any necessary safety requirements. And most importantly, it must prevent any electrostatic discharges as these can cause malfunctions, or even failures, in highly sensitive medical equipment and devices.
The highest standards of hygiene
Colorex satisfies all these requirements. Its conductive properties allow you to avoid the negative effects of an accumulation of static electricity. At the same time, the compact, pore-free surface is unfriendly to bacteria and moulds, helping you to maintain the highest standards of hygiene.
Electro static discharge, slip resistance and hygienic
Protecting your technology. Forbo Colorex and Sphera ESD & cleanroom flooring are advanced technical floor coverings specifically designed to control static discharge in sensitive areas such a cleanrooms, operating theaters and the electronics industry. We offer various ranges in tiles (Colorex) and sheet (Sphera SD|EC), each with its own specific performance.
Marmoleum Ohmex is a linoleum floor covering that meets higher requirements for electrical conductivity. It's electrical resistance is improved to < 1-108Ω (in accordance with EN1081).
This ensures personal safety and protects equipment that is sensitive to static electricity, like computers and other electronic devices.
