Flooring Systems is the only provider in the world to offer Flotex, the washable textile floor covering that is as comfortable as carpet and as easy to clean as a resilient floor covering. Thanks to its ability to withstand a very high level of wear and tear, this unique, durable product is ideal for areas with heavy traffic and where comfort is a must. In addition, innovative flocking and printing techniques ensure a very broad scope for individual design choices.
Flooring Systems offers modern office spaces, hotels and public buildings high-grade carpet tiles that have impressive acoustic properties and ensure a warm atmosphere. They can accommodate frequent changes and new requirements, provide a wide range of color and design options and have the added advantage of being easy to replace in the event that an individual tile becomes damaged.
Our entrance flooring systems make a good impression and help prevent slips, trips and falls, step by step. They protect the floor coverings in foyer areas against tracked-in dirt, prolong the life of interior floor finishes and coverings and make sure visitors can make their way safely into a building, such as an airport, supermarket, shopping mall, school or hospital.
The robust, hardwearing properties of needlefelt make it particularly suitable for areas where chairs with castors are likely to be in use, such as in offices, administrative areas and sales rooms, as well as in parts of hotel facilities with a high level of traffic. In contrast to carpet, needlefelt is often a more cost-efficient alternative for high-traffic areas where a textile look is needed.
Flooring Systems has established close cooperations with architects and designers to create new designs and to implement new ideas across our wide product offering. How such a cooperation works is shown by the example of a cooperation with HemingwayDesign, UK, in the following trailer.Go to trailer
