Marmoleum - Made by Nature   


The top layer of our Marmoleum Click is made from Forbo's own Linoleum brand, Marmoleum, one of the most natural and sustainable floorcoverings available. It is manufactured using 100% green electricity and made of 97% natural raw materials.

Marmoleum is also climate positive cradle to gate without the need for offsetting, which means it does not have a harmful effect on the environment during its production. At Forbo we have been making Marmoleum for over 150 years. Making Marmoleum flooring is an art, which you cannot learn in any trade or school. In fact, only a handful of people know how to make Marmoleum. Determining the correct mixture of ingredients, allowing the right time for raw materials to settle, applying the correct temperature & pressure are skills Marmoleum Experts must master. We are proud of our experts, as they take pride in creating our Marmoleum floors.
