As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, education establishments now face the unprecedented challenge of adapting to social distancing measures in order to protect their pupils and staff. Forbo Flooring Systems’ new array of products have been developed to ensure that buildings remain safe, operational and COVID-secure.
A variety of unique Coral Logo entrance flooring mats have been designed to act as a gentle reminder to practice social distancing and good hygiene, whilst preventing unnecessary slips. Ideal for heavy traffic areas, they offer maximum performance in removing dirt being traipsed into the building.
To aid wayfinding and to help clearly identify one-way systems, Forbo has also developed a new service for its Tessera Layout and Outline carpet tile collection and resilient sheet ranges. The service allows specifiers and facilities managers to choose carpet tiles that feature directional arrows within the design, or have loose arrows cut into existing resilient installations or resilient materials.
When it comes to encouraging people to remain a safe distance apart – especially in queues,, a selection of Allura LVT circles are now available. The loose circles, which can be inlaid within a square tile format, can be mixed and matched with other circle tiles in the collection to create clear spacing markers within the floor scheme.
In addition, to support the new ways of working, Forbo is offering online consultations with its specification team to discuss all aspects of an education project and customers can easily order samples and have them delivered to their home via the ForbOnline service.
