Dezeen promotion: UK manufacturer Forbo Flooring has created a range of textile entrance flooring from regenerated industrial and post-consumer waste, which can reduce cleaning time for businesses.
The Coral collection is made with Econyl, a high-quality yarn derived from carpet waste, fishing nets and other materials that would otherwise have gone to landfill.
This yarn is then tufted to create dense rolls, mats and tiles, which are capable of preventing pollutants as well as rain, snow, sand and soil from entering a building.
According to testing by Cleaning Research International, the flooring system is capable of removing up to 95 per cent of dirt and moisture, which in turn reduces the time spent cleaning floors by up to 65 per cent.
There are eight different Coral ranges, which have been designed to suit any interior or environment. The double duty Coral Duo line features reinforced, alternating strips of strong thick yarns, which create a ribbed pattern and help to scrape dirt from passing shoes more effectively.
Recycled PET bottles are used to make the primary backing of the Coral Welcome pieces, which have a rich deep pile and vibrant colours.
The all-rounder Coral Brush range features Memphis speckled and linear designs, and incorporates two other yarns on top of the Econyl, with the space between them helping to hide dirt and grime.
Forbo's Coral Logo service allows businesses to create a bespoke print for their flooring using logos or graphics, while the off-the-shelf Coral Click range is a modular matting system that can be assembled on site to fit any space.
Coral flooring is created with 100 per cent renewable electricity and all waste byproducts from the production process are either reused by yarn manufacturers or sent to third party recycling companies.
