Forbo Flooring Systems has launched the second generation of its premium homogeneous vinyl sheet collection, Sphera Energetic. The dynamic new range now consists of four design families, with each one offering an array of beautifully balanced designs to help architects and specifiers create fresh, inspiring education interiors, whilst still retaining its exceptional durability properties.

Developed by Forbo’s in-house European design team using the latest technology, the revitalised collection comprises four design families: Uni, which features transparent chips throughout the design; Vivid, which comprises colourful chips from the Uni design family; Shimmer, which has a modern terrazzo aesthetic thanks to its angular chips; and Confetti, a playful design that features a mixture of coloured chips from the entire range.

All of the designs have been developed to work alongside each other and are perfect for colour coding different areas of a school or to help with wayfinding. They can also be used alongside other collections in the Forbo portfolio, such as the Eternal general purpose and Step safety sheet vinyl collections, to create a fully integrated flooring scheme.

Although the designs have been refreshed, Sphera Energetic still retains its impeccable durability characteristics. Thanks to its SMART-top surface protection, Sphera Energetic combines excellent stain and scratch resistant properties, with superior appearance retention to ensure the floor looks and performs well for the pupils of today and the future. What’s more, the chips throughout each design also help to effectively hide dirt in areas where heavy footfall is expected, such as corridors.

Forbo’s new Sphera Energetic collection is also manufactured using 100% renewable electricity and in a zero waste environment, thanks to the company’s efficient state-of-the-art production process. Any waste that may be produced is re-used in Forbo’s other premium products. The collection also has low emissions and is phthalate free to help contribute to a healthy indoor environment.
