LifeLine Forte sheet flooring

Sheet flooring, PVC-Free
LifeLine Forte sheet flooring is intended for areas subject to hard wear. Forte's high-contrast design is extremely well-suited to classrooms and school corridors, hospitals, government offices, and shops. Forte flooring comes in 7 colours and is also available in 500 x 500 mm tiles. The product line includes a range of PVC-free welding rods in matching colours. 
The LifeLine product family includes 92 alternatives which may - due to the same thickness - be freely combined while taking into account the aesthetic requirements of each space as well as the cost targets for floor maintenance.

Complete product family with leading technical performance

The entire LifeLine product family is manufactured from environmentally friendly raw materials, using a new production technology. The LifeLine material consists basically of pure natural minerals with PVC-free thermoplastic polymers as a binding agent. The wearing surface is ionomer-impregnated, which ensures the material's extremely hard wear resistance. The new raw materials and heterogeneous product structure give LifeLine flooring its first-class performance characteristics and environmental benefits.

A unique material; PVC- and plasticiser-free

  LifeLine contains no PVC, plasticisers, halogens, chlorine or heavy metals. Due to its non-PVC composition, LifeLine can be disposed of by burning and used as energy producing waste at the end of its' life cycle. From the standpoint of good indoor air quality, the flooring material is an important factor. LifeLine is safe, extremely low emitting resilient flooring as it contains no plasticisers, which are often the cause of indoor emissions with traditional PVC floorings. In production, all LifeLine production waste is recycled back to the product. Throughout its whole life cycle, LifeLine flooring is a safe choice both for people and for the environment.
