Coral stops 94% of dirt & moisture

Forbo'€™s award winning Coral entrance flooring collection now boasts even better performance in the removal of tracked-in dirt

A supreme all-rounder, and an excellent solution for educational buildings of all types, the enhanced range also offers superior environmental credentials, improved fire rating and is even easier to install.

New Coral is now effective at stopping up to 94% of all tracked-in dirt, making it 40% more effective. This not only reduces the potential for slips and trips, it also delivers a substantial saving of up to 65% in cleaning costs.

Where a textile entrance flooring system is required to simultaneously absorb moisture and remove dry soiling, there are many Coral range to choose from depending on the application. Coral Classic is the ultimate moisture absorber, now available in 50 x 50cm tiles for an easier fit, whilst Coral Brush Pure is the great all rounder for moisture and dirt removal, Coral Brush Blend offers a contemporary linear design, Coral Duo is ideal for all entrances but especially small areas, and Coral Welcome boasts unrivalled environmental credentials.

Contributing to its sustainability is the amount of Econyl regenerated solution dyed polyamide yarn used in Coral, which is made using reprocessed industrial waste and post consumer waste. In addition, Forbo’s yarn waste from its Krommenie site is regenerated into new Coral yarn.

Janet Lowe, UK Market Manager at Forbo, explains: “As a part of our environmental commitment we’re always looking to apply the four key principles of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Renew to all ranges.We are pleased to announce that the Coral collection now has 100% Econyl fibre across Coral Welcome, Brush Pure, Brush Blend and 75% in Duo. Coral Welcome also has a primary backing made from recycled PET bottles.”

All Forbo’s Coral textile and Nuway rigid entrance flooring systems are designed to integrate, enabling specifiers to provide fully ‘zoned’ and colour co-ordinated design concepts from exterior to interior, ensuring optimum performance throughout.

Forbo‘s Coral entrance systems have been the international market leader for more than 40 years. Constantly evolving, the collection also complies with the highest fire class standard Bfl-S1, as many entrances and access points are also fire exits.
