    Benefits

    Flotex: the high-tech textile

    Flotex is unique compared to other textile floors because of the fibre construction. By combining a high-density flocked surface with a heavy-duty resilient foundation Flotex offers the best of both worlds in terms of performance and comfort.

    Comfortable & quiet
    • The densely placed fibres (up to 80 million per m2) provide a warm and comfortable surface
    • Low in-room impact noise performance as well as good impact sound reduction (>19dB) ensure quieter environments
    • The wide range of designs create a pleasing floor covering for any environment

    Safe & secure
    • Flotex meets the HSE wet and dry slip resistance classifications for use on flat surfaces and ramps
    • The grip of the surface of a Flotex floor provides confidence underfoot
    • The non-fray construction avoids trip hazards
    • Flotex is ultra-low in emissions and is phthalate free

    Hygienic & washable
    • The nylon 6.6 fibres capture allergens and fine dust from the air, all of which are effortlessly removed by vacuuming
    • For spills, Flotex can be cleaned using water and a brush
    • Steam cleaning or deeper mechanical cleaning with minimal detergent can be used after heavy soiling
    • Regular cleaning restores Flotex to its original appearance without wearing and fading
    • Flotex is the quickest drying textile floor covering for less down-time after cleaning
    • Thanks to its technical and bacteriostatic properties, Flotex prevents mould and odours

    Allergy UK

    Allergy UK

    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. It is even a better textile solution for allergens than hypoallergenic carpet floors. Vacuuming a Flotex flooring removes double the allergens compared to conventional carpet floors. 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.

    Floorcare

    Flotex floorcare

    The dense surface pile make Flotex extremely durable, while its upright polyamide filaments and impermeable PVC backing means it can be cleaned right down to the base. The polyamide pile captures airborne allergens and fine dust, which is easily released through vacuuming, thereby contributing towards better indoor air quality.

    Download here the overview of the LRV & NCS values

    LRV
    In architecture, Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a measure of the percentage of visible and usable light that is reflected from a surface when illuminated by a light source. The LRV can be linked to a number of decisions on which a colour can be chosen. The approximate LRV of a colour indicates the amount of visible light that a colour will reflect. Black has a light reflectance value of 0% and absorbs all light. White has a light reflectance value of 100% and keeps a building light and cool. It also links to the use of electricity where lighter colours need less lighting, which is a direct saving for the environment. All Forbo products carry a light reflection value, which can be found in the text next to the enlargement of the tabletop.

    NCS
    NCS colour coding describes the colour of any material. With numeric colour codes, so called NCS Notations, such as NCS S 1080-Y70R, any colour can be described precisely. NCS has defined 1950 standardised colours at every 10th step of the colour space to represent the entire colour space. Each notation's colour sample is visually identical to any other colour sample of the same notation, whether it is a standardised colour or a colour in between the 1950 standard colours. This way you can find matching flooring colours with other coloured items in a room.

    The 'Natural Colour System' NCS has been developped in order to indentify the colour value, its intensity and hue for a product. By using the NCS maesurement system, colours and colour groups can be identified and matched regardless of the material that has been used. In this way colour coordinates for different aspects of the interior of a building can be determined. All Forbo Flooring products carry an NCS code, which can be found next to the enlargement of the tabletop and in our downloadcenter.
