Your Allura solution

Find the right Allura solution

Every project is different and has its own specific demands. This can be in relation to the subfloor, the volume of traffic that passes through, or the size of the project. Within our Allura LVT portfolio we offer solutions for all types of applications. Depending on the requirements for your project, you can choose for a specific vinyl tiles construction: fully adhered, loose lay, tackified loose lay, click connected or puzzle connected loose lay.

In addition, there is Allura Decibel, our silent hero. Allura Decibel offers the looks and performance of our other Allura floors and meets 19 dB acoustic requirements.

The images below show the unique characteristics of each floor type and how the different constructions are built up.

How to specify your order?
Each Allura collection has a unique identifier that indicates the construction:
● DR7 - Allura Dryback wear layer 0.70 mm
● DR5 - Allura Dryback wear layer 0.55 mm
● DR4 - Allura Dryback wear layer 0.40 mm
● FL1 - Allura Flex wear layer 1.0 mm

● AD8 – Allura Decibel wear layer 0.80 mm
● AD3 – Allura Decibel wear layer 0.35 mm

Each colour has a colourway number, like 60284. Add the code above as a suffix behind the colourway number to specify your required Allura construction.

Example: you want the natural antique oak in Allura Decibel with wear layer thickness 0.80 mm. Take the colourway number of natural antique oak which is 5404, and add AD8 behind the number: 5404AD8.

NCS & LRV values

Download here the overview of the Allura Decibel NCS & LRV values

About LRV
In architecture, Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a measure of the percentage of visible and usable light that is reflected from a surface when illuminated by a light source. The LRV can be linked to a number of decisions on which a colour can be chosen. The approximate LRV of a colour indicates the amount of visible light that a colour will reflect. Black has a light reflectance value of 0% and absorbs all light. White has a light reflectance value of 100% and keeps a building light and cool. LRV also links to the use of electricity where lighter colours need less lighting, which is a direct saving for the environment. All Forbo floor coverings carry a light reflection value, which can be found in the text next to the enlargement of the tabletop and in the NCS & LRV values document.

About NCS
NCS colour coding describes the colour of any material. With numeric colour codes, so called NCS Notations, such as NCS S 1080-Y70R, any colour can be described precisely. NCS has defined 1950 standardised colours at every 10th step of the colour space to represent the entire colour space. Each notation's colour sample is visually identical to any other colour sample of the same notation, whether it is a standardised colour or a colour in between the 1950 standard colours. This way you can find matching flooring colours with other coloured items in a room.

The 'Natural Colour System' NCS has been developed in order to identify the colour value, its intensity and hue for a product. By using the NCS measurement system, colours and colour groups can be identified and matched regardless of the material that has been used. In this way colour coordinates for different aspects of the interior of a building can be determined. All Forbo Flooring products carry an NCS code, which can be found next to the enlargement of the tabletop and in our download center.
