All aboard with ‘NEW’ Coral Marine FR

IMO Entrance & Corridor Floorcovering

Safety and cleanliness aboard any marine vessel or offshore environment is extremely important. With high volumes of foot traffic, comes dirt and moisture at entry points,  creating potential slip hazards. Entry points are most often also exit points, and in times of emergency, keeping these areas slip free is a must. When dirt and moisture is carried inside this can cause damage to interior floor finishes, which inturn will lead to increased cleaning costs. 

At Forbo we have developed a new IMO tested and approved entrance flooring solution to tackle this issue. Coral Marine FR is a new product in the market, replacing the previous Coral T32 FR product. It has been developed for use in entrances, as well as transitional areas such as corridors, lift lobbies etc… as it is an excellent barrier system that stops up to 95% of dirt and moisture at point of entry.

Coral Marine FR is a cut pile floor covering consisting of 60% wool and 40% polyamide. It is the ideal choice for an entrance system, simultaneously absorbing moisture and removing dry soiling. Coral entrance systems can reduce cleaning costs and prolong the life of on-board floor finishes and coverings.
