flotex
terrazzo

Flotex Sottsass Terrazzo is a witty “twist” on the concept of traditional Italian Terrazzo (a poured concrete flooring containing chips of stone, marble or glass with distinctive and irregular pattern when dry and polished). On closer inspection, the “chips” in the design are revealed as pieces of torn paper – each holds its own story – a shredded love letter or only a bill? – it is for the individual to decide and to create his own narrative.

Allergy UK & Sanitized®

Allergy UK & Sanitized® treatment

Allergy UK
Flotex is approved by Allergy UK as it has proven to have a positive impact on the lives of allergy sufferers. It has the ability to trap allergens and then safely release them to standard cleaning appliances. When cleaned, Flotex releases twice as many allergens compared to the cleaning of conventional carpets. More harmful allergens are removed, creating a more comfortable environment for asthma and allergy sufferers.

Sanitized®
Flotex is treated with Sanitized® which suppresses the growth of house dust mite populations (dermatophagoides pteronyssinus) - even in places where it is difficult to reach for thorough vacuuming. Independent tests demonstrate that a dust mite population introduced to a sample of Flotex with Sanitized® is reduced by an average of 86% over an 8 week period.

Environment

A sustainable floor

Green electricity
Forbo’s manufacturing operations for Flotex in Great Britain and France secure a high quality floor covering, produced with green electricity and minimum waste streams that are all recycled in the floor.

Water based
Flotex is created with nylon 6.6 fibres. All dies and inks that are used to create the Flotex designs are water based. No additional chemical processes take place other than high temperature steam treatment to secure the colours.

Recycled content
Flotex makes use of waste streams of other Forbo production locations to be transformed into the backing of the floor coverings. Recycled content in Flotex is up to 67% of the backing content.

Extremely durable
A big advantage for using Flotex is the extreme performance of the floor covering, with a product life time that surpasses that of ordinary textiles by a factor 6.

Simple cleaning & maintenance
Flotex can be cleaned by using water and a simple detergent. For most staining, simple household soap is enough to clean the product, while other detergent clean away ink, oil and more severe stains. After use Flotex can be recycled back into the production process.
