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.
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.
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.
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.
Allergy UK has conducted a survey to ask people how they think about their workplace in relation to the presence of allergens. They concluded that close to 27% of working people could be allergic to their workplace.
Flotex has a unique construction that captures allergens and fine dust from the air and that is easy to clean. Due to its highly dense pile, twice as many allergens are trapped in Flotex's nylon fibres and released upon vacuuming in comparison to conventional carpet. A Flotex floor secures good indoor air quality which is important for allergy sufferers, and is therefore awarded the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval™ from the British Allergy Foundation.
High definition digital print
With a smooth, velour like surface that looks and feels like a carpet, Flotex is the perfect textile substrate for vibrant designs and true to life visuals which can be produced in high level photographic resolution. All desired colour shades and hues can be achieved.
Digital print offers an infinite number of design options ranging from abstracts with intricate colour spectrums to realistic images of natural materials like sand, grass and water. Create 3D depth or a “trompe d ‘oeil” effect on your floor. Or bring nature into your room by choosing a floor covering with autumn leaves or flowers.
Endless design options
Digital printing is also well suited for those collections that require visual detail and effects that cannot easily be reached through conventional print. Our Flotex custom flooring collection contains more than 500 individual items.
