Commercial office flooring

When it comes to refurbishing commercial office spaces, a unique flooring design will set your space apart from others. The wide range of options in Forbo's portfolio will make it easy to select the ideal floor covering to meet your needs.

Studies have shown that when companies focus on their employee’s wellbeing there is a clear correlation with improved productivity, increased morale and better staff retention. Improving employee wellbeing begins with improving key factors such as lighting, air quality, noise and comfort.

We understand that improving an employee’s well-being, satisfaction and productivity requires a holistic approach to commercial office design. That’s why our portfolio of commercial office flooring features a comprehensive collection of solutions - including textile and modular – that are designed to help you create high-quality and fully functional spaces.

Key factors such as lighting, indoor air quality, noise control and thermal comfort can all contribute to better indoor office environments.

Flooring solutions by area

Forbo can offer a wide range of floor coverings to suit all areas included in commercial office design and fit out projects, including main offices, meeting rooms, toilets, tea points, kitchens, reception areas and more.

Tessera - carpet tiles

As part of the production process of our Tessera carpet tiles we are always looking to reduce the amount of virgin materials we use. For example, instead of throwing away yarn ends, we rewind them and tuft them into our Tessera range.

All of our UK-produced tufted carpet tiles have at least 56% recycled content (by weight), with some containing an impressive 75%.

We even have a range made with up to 100% ECONYL® regenerated yarn.

Entrance Flooring Systems

Keeping the world outside, outside

Sustainable flooring starts at the door, with our Coral textile entrance flooring systems. Many of our Coral collections are made from ECONYL® – a high quality yarn made from 100% regenerated polyamide. Regenerated from recyclable material such as abandoned fishing nets and even old carpet fluff! In addition, the primary backing of Coral Welcome is made from recycled plastic PET bottles.

We make Coral in a factory that runs entirely on green electricity and sends virtually zero waste to landfill and 100% of our aluminium, steel and rubber waste from our Nuway production is recycled.

And for those customers wanting a ‘natural’ entrance system, we offer Nuway Tuftiguard with Bamboo scraper bars. Bamboo is a sustainable species of grass and one of the fastest growing plants on earth.

The Work Fever Report

The Work Fever report has found some interesting statistics around allergies. With over 21 million adults suffering from some kind of allergy, the UK is currently one of the top three countries in the world for the highest instances of allergies. Exposure to dust mites trapped in soft furnishings and carpets is one of the most common causes of Asthma and allergies.

The report found that average office cleaning is not able to prevent the build-up of dust mites and allergens due to infrequent and inadequate cleaning schedules – with 37% reporting their office is cleaned just once a week or less. With 20% of respondents spending eight hours or more at work, the combination of visibly dusty and cluttered desks, soft furnishings, poorly vacuumed carpets and a lack of ventilation is not conducive to a healthy working environment.
