The new Eternal collection from Forbo Flooring benefits from a new development that extends commercial performance.

Incorporated into the new Eternal range is PUR Pearl, a polyurethane reinforced cross-linked lacquer that offers high resistance to stains, scratching and scuffing while remaining flexible and beautifully matte.

This makes it particularly appealing for installations requiring rugged flooring such as educational, health or aged facilities, hospitality venues, commercial foyers and retail.

The Eternal collection has expanded in 2007 to offer a completely new, contemporary flooring palette.

Eternal Wood presents 14 warm natural hardwoods with dense visual texture and good aesthetics; 6 of the range are also available in Eternal Wood Decibel offering sound reduction of 17dB without compromising performance.

Eight authentic stone varieties and two different tonal palettes encapsulate Eternal Stone, a collection with three dimensional visuals incorporating fine metallic sparkles to represent the smooth lustre of a natural stone floor.

With eight shimmering colours, Eternal Impact has good textural appeal of organic shapes and intricate detail not unlike translucent fine stained glass.

Vibrant colour is the hallmark of new eternal mica. Solid, vivacious designs composed from individual particles of colour bring brilliance to retail and commercial environments.

Caring for the environment

As part of its continued commitment to creating better environments, Forbo has reviewed its production process for the new Eternal collection.

Developments to reduce Eternal floorings’ ecological footprint by using a calendared backing made from 70% recycled materials, choosing water-based inks rather than solvent-based and complying with strict emission requirements.

Eternal is also heavy duty ensuring a long life and easy maintenance due to the PUR Pearl finish, which is also kinder on the environment.
