Adhesive free floor coverings offer a quick and easy installation, as products can often be installed over the existing sub floor or even over the existing floor covering with minimal preparation. This means that work can be completed overnight or even whilst the premises are still in use, depending on the size of the installation area. Due to the fact that the installation is completely free of adhesives, no setting or drying time needs to be factored in to the project, meaning that the floor is ready to be walked on or have wheeled traffic rolled over it immediately after it is fitted and furniture can be moved into place.
The use of adhesive free products will contribute positively to creating a better indoor environment and improve the wellbeing of occupants, as installation is free from the usual constraints associated with adhesives, such as lingering odours. There will also be less dust and mess as a result of minimal or no subfloor preparation.
With over 1 million m² of products fitted globally, Forbo’s Fast Fit collection encompasses an array of adhesive free products, including entrance products and interior flooring ranges in sheet, tile and plank formats for maximum flexibility. There are even ranges that are suitable for installation over damp subfloors, and others that can provide acoustic benefits. The comprehensive Fast Fit range includes Coral Click entrance matting system, Allura Click, Allura Ease, Allura Puzzle and Colorex Plus ranges, as well as the award-winning adhesive free sheet vinyl: Modul’up.
When the time eventually comes to replace a Fast Fit 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, making it the ideal solution for commercial projects that require a quick turnaround.
