ESD FLOORING UNDER CONTROL THANKS TO FORBO

Forbo Flooring Systems newly created Under Control collection comprises an array of flooring products to help control electro-static discharge in sensitive areas of a healthcare facility, such as operating theatres and pharmaceutical laboratories. The collection features its popular Colorex tile range, refreshed with a new palette and including two new products, and Sphera SD/EC, a technically advanced homogeneous conductive sheet vinyl range. 

 

Completely new to the market, the Sphera range offers two options depending on the performance required for the area: Sphera EC is a permanently conductive solution and the Sphera SD option is a permanently dissipative solution.

 

Alongside the newly refreshed colour palettes for the Colorex SD and EC ranges, there is also a new Colorex Glow option. Colorex Glow is a permanently conductive solution that provides a phosphorescent glow for up to four hours after exposure to a light source. It is an ideal solution for floor safety signage, and to guide occupiers to exits, in case of a power cut.

 

The Under Control collection has been designed to comply with all the ESD and cleanroom standards, including the Fraunhofer Institute.
