FAST FIT WITH FORBO

Forbo Flooring Systems’ Fast Fit collection encompasses an array of adhesive free products in sheet, tile and plank formats for maximum flexibility. This includes its Coral Click entrance matting system, Allura Click, Allura Ease, Allura Puzzle and Colorex Plus ranges, as well as its award-winning adhesive free sheet vinyl: Modul’up.

 

Providing a rapid and reusable solution, Fast Fit has been designed to be laid straight down onto the subfloor, or even over an existing floor, with minimal preparation in many cases. Installation time is therefore reduced by over 50%, meaning that work can be completed during half term breaks, over the weekend, overnight or even whilst the premises are still in use, depending on the size of the installation area. 

 

As colleges and university buildings are now commonly open for long hours or even operating around-the-clock, downtime is often a pressing issue when it comes to refurbishments. Due to the fact that a Fast Fit installation is completely free of adhesives, no setting or drying time needs to be factored into the project. The floor is ready to be walked on immediately after it is fitted, and facilities can resume as normal. 

 

What’s more, when the time eventually comes to replace the floor, products are easy to uplift and re-use, or remove and recycle at the end of their service life as there is no adhesive residue on back of the material. Subfloors are then left clean and sound ready for a repeat installation. With over 1 million sqm of Fast Fit products fitted globally, the innovative range offers the ideal solution for the education sector.
