Forbo offers new LVT collection to contractors

AS part of its Allura LVT collection refresh, Forbo Flooring Systems has reportedly developed a new offering specifically designed for flooring contractors. The collection provides contractors with several ‘off the shelf’ Allura options, available in various installation constructions to ensure there’s a solution for all applications, says the company.

Forbo adds: ‘We understand the frustrations flooring contractors may face when finding a suitable flooring solution for their customers, which not only meets their design brief and is readily available, but also offers various installation methods to meet the conditions of the subfloor. However, with Forbo’s new Allura collection this is no longer the case.’

Forbo are said to be offering 42 of its design options from the newly refreshed Allura range, including the new oxidised strata and shell twine designs, along with the classic natural oak and whitewash elegant oak aesthetics, all of which are readily available for orders up to 500sq m. All 42 options can reportedly be installed either fully adhered or using the tackified installation method, and 20 of the 42 items can be installed using all three installation methods including fully adhered, tackified and click-connected adhesive free, meaning there’s an option for all application types.

The variety of installation methods available, plus the range of modern designs, will allow contractors to present the book to their client to choose a design, without having to worry about the actual installation requirements or availability, says the company.

Part of Forbo’s wider refresh of its Allura portfolio, Karen Wilding, marketing communications manager explains: ‘With the refresh of our commercial Allura collection, we wanted to make sure we were providing contractors with varied options to choose from, which helps them to meet installation and design requirements on all projects with the confidence they can order it without delay, which is why we curated this specially selected collection.

‘We also made some exciting improvements to our existing Allura collection, such as updating our Flex collection, now named Flex II, which sees the inclusion of a new double-glass fibre-layer for better stability and allows for completely adhesive free installation in areas up to 150sq m. As part of Forbo’s Fast Flooring family of adhesive free solutions, Flex II joins our Allura Click Pro and Allura Puzzle collections, where the tiles can be easily ‘connected together’. This allows contractors to offer their clients a solution that can be used for large projects, without the need for adhesives, helping to minimise disruption and down time.’

In the development of the new Allura collection, Forbo’s reportedly worked continuously to increase the sustainability of the portfolio. A 100% phthalate free, REACH compliant product, Allura is produced in Europe using 100% green electricity and with low product emission levels that are below the industry average, says the company. With dimensional stability ensuring a safe and hygienic flooring, the embossed lacquering system is described by Forbo to guarantee long lasting appearance retention and improves resistance to stains and scratches.
