Two Forbo Flooring products have once again been independently certified as meeting the requirements of the new Good Environmental Choice (GECA) standard GECA 25-2011-Floor Coverings.

Forbo Marmoleum and Artoleum were the first flooring products to be granted a Good Environmental Choice label under GECA’s inaugural standards.

Forbo Marmoleum flooring incorporates 100 per cent bio-based content and carries more third-party, independent, LCA based environmental certifications than any other flooring material. It has a 100-year plus track record of performance and durability, and sets a benchmark unmatched in the resilient flooring industry.

Key benefits of Forbo Marmoleum floors also include permanent, natural properties to kill MRSA and Norovirus; naturally anti-static; R10 slip rated safety assurance; no sealing required with Topshield finish; easy low cost maintenance; and ISO 14001:2004 certification.
