Forbo introduces the Allura Design Vinyl Tiles collection

November 9th, 2006 · No Comments

Forbo is proud to introduce Forbo Allura design vinyl tiles as a spectacular new addition to its project vinyl portfolio. The collection will be introduced at the Domotex exhibition in Hannover in January 2006. Forbo Allura is offering exclusive designs, innovative textures, authentic finishes and distinctive touches. Made to the highest quality, Allura is suitable for use in all commercial ares but is designed to make a statement in high visual impact areas such as Retail, Leisure and Hospitality.

The natural look of wood, stone, glass and metal, combined with cutting edge embossing technology together create Allura, a new exclusive range of design vinyl tiles, that are all about texture and performance. Inspired by beautiful natural flooring materials, Allura looks and feels authentic, whilst providing a tough resilient flooring.

Innovative textures

Superior texture is what sets Allura apart. A 3-dimensional effect is achieved through both surface and reverse embossing which lifts exclusive designs from one-dimensional prints to what looks and feels like hewn wood or hand-finished stone.

Exclusive designs

Every natural product has its own unique look, and that is reflected in the designs created exclusively for the Allura collection. Allura is created with a distinct European flavour using Spanish and French sandstones, Italian marbles, Scandinavian slate as well as European pine, oak, beech and specimens of worn barn-wood as examples for its designs.

Authentic finishes

The natural look of Allura designs is enhanced with a finish that complements both the texture and design. Bevelled edging, where the edge of the tile is cut at an angle, gives each plank or tile a distinct look. A water-clear wear-layer guarantees the truest and most natural representation of colour.

Distinctive touches

Design elements such as metallic stripping or borders can complete the look. Moreover, Allura can be moulded to suit your heart?s desires through custom cutting or custom manufacture.

Allura wood – Allura stone – Allura metal – Allura glass

The collection consists of 105 items: 36 wood; 39 stone; 13 metal; 17 glass tiles and planks in their characteristic dimensions as well as borders and decorative strippings, all directly available.

The official product launch is set for March 1st 2006. For further information visit www.forbo-allura.com
