Marmoleum flooring in a public building setting

Natural raw materials

Marmoleum is a flooring product made primarily from renewable natural resources. The top layer is linoleum, a bio-based, ecologically produced material made from 97% natural raw materials.

The craft of manufacturing linoleum has evolved over the last 150 years. Forbo has been driving this development through its Marmoleum brand. Making Marmoleum is an art, which is not learned at any trade or craft school. In fact, only a handful of people know how to make Marmoleum.

Clean Flooring

Clean floorings

Marmoleum's ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria stems from the natural raw materials that go into its production, specifically flax seed oil. 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.

With the correct cleaning regime, our Marmoleum floor coverings will not harbour allergens or house dust mites.

Beautiful as well as functional

Decorative flooring can be beautiful and functional at the same time. Think about wayfinding on the floor in hospitals or museums, or zoning to identify different areas of a building.
