Taking the hassle out of workplace specification

Taking a holistic approach to commercial office design is key to ensure that the workplace environment has a positive effect on an employee’s productivity, health, wellbeing and satisfaction. From reducing impact sound, to improving air quality and thermal comfort, as well as being instrumental in the overall interior décor, floor coverings play a significant role within an office.

With a wide variety of products available on the market, it can be difficult for Facilities Managers to identify a suitable solution for each area of an office. Luckily, Forbo Flooring Systems’ Office Fit-Out collection takes the hassle out of workplace specification. Featuring floor coverings that have been designed to work perfectly together, the collection is ideal for office refurbishments or to quickly and easily redefine spaces – thanks to the modular format of the floor coverings.

In today’s modern office environment, modular floor coverings are a smart choice as the use of a tackifier adhesive means that they can be adapted easily and quickly to new and changing requirements. For example, Tessera carpet tiles are perfect for main working spaces, Flotex flocked flooring is suitable for areas that require more comfort and privacy and Allura Flex provides a more sophisticated look and feel in reception and breakout spaces.

What’s more, as office design steers towards the creation of zones and connecting multiple areas within one space, Allura Flex can be installed alongside carpet tiles without the need for transition strips or subfloor build up, as the products are a similar thickness. This opens up new opportunities for designers who are looking for more flexibility when delivering projects to challenging deadlines – or even designing to aid social distancing by redefining individual areas.

And now, with the help of Forbo’s new Office Design & Fit-Out sample book, FMs can easily discover the company’s comprehensive portfolio of textile and resilient modular floor coverings that can be installed together at various price points. The handy tool provides the ideal source of guidance and inspiration to create truly integrated office flooring schemes. Simply mix, match, combine or contrast various shapes, sizes, colours and textures to create unique designs with contemporary juxtapositions.

The most popular colourways within the Allura Flex collection are readily stocked in the UK to ensure a speedy turnaround for your project. And as Allura Flex can be installed alongside any of its Tessera carpet tiles, if stock or quick delivery is a concern, then Tessera Layout & Outline carpet tile collections are available via Forbo’s five-day delivery scheme, Forbo Direct.

Creating the modern office using integrated flooring schemes no longer has to be complicated – thanks to the development of flooring solutions that complement one another both in terms of installation and design. Forbo understands the needs and challenges of the office sector and can provide quality solutions, product, service and advice to take the hassle out of workplace specification.
