School & Day Care Centres

Children spend most of their time indoors, at home and in school. The measured indoor air quality parameters indicate that children in primary schools are subjected to large concentrations of CO2 and exposed to increased levels of particulate VOC’s and biological contaminants. Asthma and allergic diseases are the most prevalent chronic diseases among children and have increased quite rapidly in the last decades. The finding cannot be explained by genetic changes and is more likely to be due to changes in environmental exposure and/or in lifestyle.

Forbo’s Marmoleum is made from renewable natural raw materials that are PVC-free, low emitting and easy to clean. Together with a well laid out entrance flooring system, we take care of a better indoor environment in education facilities.

Office & other working environments

Offices are one of the most standardized spaces in buildings, exhibiting an almost identical character, regardless of their location in the world. Air conditioning and mechanical ventilation, as well as artificial lighting, require high levels of energy that affect the indoor environment. As we learn more about the effect of the quality of office design and the well-being and productivity of the workers, there is a clear focus on creating inspiring interior spaces that combine individual, collaborative and playful opportunities creating inspiring workspaces.

Floors that demonstrate a human design quality, vibrant or close to nature, comfortable and improving the acoustic ambiance as well as enhancing natural light sources, take a prominent place in all our collections.

Retail & Leisure

As retail and leisure spaces become experience centres that focus on individuality and brand image, they highlight a different aspect of comfort and well-being, whilst safety and hygiene remain equally important. Speed and ease of installation, cleaning and maintenance are at the heart of the retail flooring requirements.

Individual floors with custom design and easy to install modular loose lay products are to be found in all of our flooring collections in a wide choice of functionality and design.
