Introducing Forbo's New Acoustic Collection

Forbo_Sarlon Modul'up Kubik Pastel 9307 Uni Dark Blue 877 12.16.01

Forbo Flooring Systems has developed a new Acoustic Collection, which now brings together its well-established Sarlon acoustic vinyl range and its award-winning, tried and proven, Modul’up adhesive-free solutions. The collection will be the go-to reference point for any project where impact-sound and downtime need to be minimised. 

Forbo’s new Acoustic Collection offers a diverse portfolio of products available in adhesive-free or traditional fully adhered formats in acoustic, compact and compact acoustic versions. It comprises Forbo’s acoustic sheet vinyl Sarlon 19 dB and Sarlon 15 dB, and its innovative, tried and tested adhesive-free vinyl solutions Modul’up 19 dB and Modul’up Compact. Not only does the collection provide exceptional impact sound reduction properties, but Sarlon 15 dB and Modul’up Compact offer the highest resistance to residual indentation.

Part of Forbo’s Fast Fit range, Modul’up has been designed to be installed with minimal subfloor preparation, and can be installed over a variety of subfloors or even over an existing floor, reducing installation time by over 50% compared to standard, glued down products. The innovative single-sided tape system used to install Modul’up ensures the product joins stay tightly in place once installed, making it a truly ‘lay flat stay flat’ flooring solution in every sense. In fact, Modul’up can even withstand heavy rolling as it performs like a traditional adhered solution. What’s more, as there are no adhesives required, there are also no lingering odours or aromatics, resulting in a better indoor environment for all who use the building. 

The four solutions are also all available in 94 designs, which have been split into the following design families: Wood, Material, Colour and Graphic, and include new digitally printed items, such as Hybrid Wood, Colour Splash, Kubik and Graphito.  

The collection also benefits from Forbo’s new XtremPUR finish, which is an extremely high-performance lacquer protection that provides the best possible resistance against stains, scuffs and scratches and provides a natural matte aesthetic. This new finish also enhances the slip resistance of the collection to R10 and delivers a fire performance of Bfl-s1.

Lewis Cooper, Marketing Executive at Forbo Flooring Systems said: “Similar to other portfolios, this collection has been created based on the company’s design principles and Global Colour Card. The result is a broad product offering where different product ranges complement each other, allowing contractors to create integrated flooring schemes with ease. In fact, the Acoustic Collection can be used alongside a variety of Forbo’s ranges, such as Allura LVT, Eternal vinyl sheet and Sphera homogeneous vinyl, thanks to their colours and designs having been developed to complement one another.”

Forbo’s new Acoustic Collection is phthalate free, offers best in class stain and chemical resistance and has certified anti-bacterial properties, all of which contribute to a healthy, hygienic and easy to maintain interior. 

The new Sarlon and Modul’up ranges are just two solutions from Forbo’s Acoustic flooring offering. The wider acoustic collection from Forbo also includes its modular LVT solution Allura Decibel; its safety vinyl, Step Decibel; its renowned sustainable options Marmoleum Decibel and Acoustic, and Forbo’s general sheet solution, Eternal de Luxe Decibel.
