Hot on the heels of its very first homogeneous vinyl collection, produced in its new state-of-the-art production facility, Forbo Flooring Systems has now launched a second range: Sphera Energetic. Reflecting the latest education trend colours, and with low emissions and high LRVs, this new phthalate free collection will contribute towards a stimulating, yet healthy indoor environment for any educational establishment.
Forbo’s Sphera Energetic is a bold and exciting new range that challenges traditional flooring design in schools and colleges. End users are presented with a fresh and playful colour proposition consisting of 52 shades: 41 ‘flecked’ colours alongside 11 complementary ‘vivid’ hues, which feature corresponding highlight chips to create an integrated flooring solution. The colour options are ideal for zoning and way-finding through corridors as the palette has been designed with intrinsic tint combinations to create stand out and inspiring flooring schemes.
Janet Lowe, Head of Marketing UK and Ireland at Forbo Flooring Systems commented: “The new Sphera Energetic range delivers an exciting proposition for educational design: a stylish and contemporary yet wholly practical flooring solution. Benefitting from the SMART-top finish, the new collection is resistant to chemicals, scratches and stains, making it ideal for busy classroom areas and corridors.
“Sphera Energetic’s colour palette offers high Light Reflectance Value (LRV) ratings, which will help you to maximise any form of lighting within a building – helping you to create a better and healthier environment for pupils and staff. It is also phthalate free and has very low emissions of 10ug/m2 after 28 days.”
Sphera Energetic is manufactured using SMART (Sustainable Modern Advanced Robust Technology) technology; the in-line coating and subsequent embossing process results in superior appearance and durability, which sees the collection achieving the highest abrasion wear rating group T (tested to EN660-2).
