April sees Forbo expand its already extensive product portfolio with the launch of Allura, a new Luxury Vinyl Tile collection. This new collection continues Forbo’s tradition of impressive design and performance attributes.

Allura takes the natural look of wood, stone, glass and metal and combines it with cutting edge embossing technology. Inspired by natural flooring materials, every detail has been developed to achieve maximum visual impact.

Superior Texture makes Allura stand out from the crowd and ensures that designs are almost indistinguishable from the real thing. A three-dimensional effect is achieved, which lifts designs from one-dimensional prints to impactful, visual feasts.

Creating a unique interior has never been easier, with the possibility to combine Allura’s authentic finishes with Forbo’s Marmoleum and Project Vinyl ranges. The Retail sector presents a demanding environment, not just in terms of product performance, but also in terms of colour and design. Forbo’s complete linoleum and project vinyl portfolios excel in this respect, presenting designers with a range of quality products that encompass the very latest in interior trends.

Derek Byrne, Managing Director, Forbo says:

“ It is essential that any décor choice combines ease of maintenance and exceptional durability with a stunning visual appearance and our new Allura collection ably delivers. Design-led, it combines optimum visual impact with outstanding performance. It is suitable for all commercial environments, but in particular the retail, leisure and hospitality sectors.”

Allura wood achieves the desired ‘warm look’ of wood without any of the disadvantages. It provides a tough, resilient floor suitable for the most demanding of environments. A variety of wood styles, authentic finishes and plank dimensions are available to complement a range of interior moods.

Allura stone creates the cool and classic feel of a stone floor while excelling in performance. The choice of finishes and textures combined with superior stain resistance will keep areas free from discolouration or tracking. A broad colour spectrum is available ranging from light, creamy tones to rustic and darker shades.

Exclusively designed grout and stripping can be combined with the complete range of stone tiles for a distinctly individual design.

Allura metal provides cutting edge modernity and its sleek look is a real fashion statement. As Allura metal won’t tarnish or oxidise it has excellent appearance retention and is superior to the real thing. It can be used to create a high impact feature area when combined with Allura wood, stone or other Forbo products such as Marmoleum®.

Allura glass combines Superior Texture with funky new designs using bold and dynamic colours. It can be used to create a retro feel and introduce a splash of colour to a space. Allura glass is a clear winner with a completely smooth surface meaning there are no problems with streaks or smears and a surface texture, which naturally reflects light.

Glass mosaic includes a number of popular glass colours and works well on its own or combined with other glass designs. Glass borders and corners are also available to add highlighting spots of colour.

Allura tiles are simple to maintain, benefiting from an exceptionally tough PVC wearlayer enhanced by a PUR finish, which makes them easy to clean. All tiles have a 2.5mm gauge and a variety of tile sizes are available.
