Sustainable

Most Linoleum floors are mistaken for vinyl which is a man-made material as a by-product of petroleum. Vinyl is effectively a plastic sheet, which is awkward to produce and to recycle.  Linoleum is a natural flooring material; it’s made up of 97% natural raw materials, 72% of which are rapidly renewable and the other 43% is recycled content. This makes linoleum biodegradable and safe for the environment while having the lowest cost of ownership of any hard floor covering available to the customer.

Health & Hygiene

Even though Lino is a natural product, it is highly durable and is resistant to diluted acids, oils, fats and most conventional solvents. This durability makes Lino capable of lasting for 30+ years, making lino not only environmentally safe but economically sound as well.

Linoleum is made from linseed oil, flax, rosin, wood flour, limestone and jute. Linseed oil has Bio-static properties meaning it can fight bacteria and germs, like MRSA, which have become a serious threat to peoples health and studies have proven that MRSA is killed off by the linseed oil. This makes Lino ideal for NHS buildings, Doctors surgeries and even Veterinary practices
