KEEPING UP APPEARANCES
Dropping a cup of coffee – or a jar with chemicals – will cause
no headache if you’ve chosen a Upofloor Xpression floor. The
compact wear layer rejects dirt and makes the floors easy to
clean, keeping maintenance costs down. Thanks to their slight
embossing, they also provide good slip-resistance.

WELL EDUCATED CHOICE
There are many kinds of foot traffic. For flooring, one of the
worst kinds of traffic occurs when people are sitting down.
The wear and tear of feet grinding away in auditoriums and
class rooms during long lectures, chairs being pulled and then
pushed can make any floor suffer – not with hard-wearing
Upofloor Xpression. Its unique and durable surface protection,
similar to that of a golf ball, will hinder even a professional golfer
from tearing the surface apart when he takes a swing.

stability and exceptional durability.
The tight surface prevents dirt from

Upofloor Quartz consists of some 70%
quartz and natural minerals with a minimal
use of plasticizers – the small amount
used is bio based, nontoxic and phthalate
free. Awarded the FloorScore indoor air

UPOFLOOR HAS REINVENTED
RESILIENT FLOORING. SMARTER.
GREENER. TOUGHER.
Since the start in the 1950’s, Upofloor has revolutionized
our view of traditional public space flooring – focusing on
creating smart flooring materials that are environmentally
sound, strong and easy to maintain.
Upofloor was founded in the small town of Nokia in western Finland, one
of the most entrepreneurial and innovative centers of Europe. It was here
that the Nokia Group started its operations in the 19th century as a small
paper mill, taking its name from the city. The innovative spirit that took the
Nokia telecom brand to worldwide success has made a strong mark on the
city, and has attracted a number of innovative companies over the
decades. One of these is Upofloor, which was founded in Nokia’s old paper
mill and which was also owned for a period by the Nokia Group.
Upofloor’s founding vision was to offer the Finnish market an innovative
product that was catching on around the world, i.e. resilient vinyl flooring.
Production expanded in 1960’s to include public space´s resilient sheet
floorings and flexible vinyl floorings for domestic use. Meanwhile, a growing
demand from other countries resulted in continuously expanding exports.
Today, Upofloor has successfully produced, marketed and installed millions
of square feet of floorings all around the world.
Focus on environmentally sound floorings
Still, Upofloor’s product development activities are based in the pioneering
town of Nokia. Focus is on designing innovative PVC-free, environmentally
sound floorings that are durable and easy to maintain.
The first PVC-free floor was launched already in 2004. Since then, Upofloor
has become a pioneer in PVC-free floorings, aiming to continuously expand
its offerings in design-driven, technologically advanced and sustainable
floorings. Upofloor has also been a leading quartz tile manufacturer for
over 60 years, providing uniquely designed flooring to many types of
commercial installations.
Part of Kährs Group
Today, Upofloor has two production facilities in Finland. The company is
part of Kährs Group. Established in 1857, Kährs is the world’s oldest wood
floor manufacturer. It is also the leading, with worldwide brand
recognition.
