Extremely durable – can withstand extreme wear
Superior abrasion resistance – tested against EN 1307

Long-lasting retains its good looks for years

HOW IT PERFORMS
Allergy approved – captures allergens and fine dust that are easily released when vacuumed. Flotex removes almost DOUBLE the allergens compared to conventional carpet
Impervious backing – suitable for wet cleaning and is fast drying
Dream to clean – with or without chemicals
R12/P5 slip rating when dry and when wet

Cleanability

Easier than you can imagine!

Cleanability
Whether its water-soluble stains such as coffee, coca cola, wine, etc. or greasy stains like butter, engine oil or permanent marker, all can be removed easily from Flotex flocked flooring. Flotex can save you time and cut your cleaning costs as it is easy to clean, quick-drying and typically needs less water/chemicals than other textile floor coverings.

The unique construction of Flotex flocked flooring is what allows releasing soiling like no other textile flooring. Unlike the looped and twisted fibres of a conventional carpet tile, the smooth straight fibres of Flotex do not trap particles of soil, allowing them to be removed without difficulty during cleaning. Most spills can be cleaned with plain water.
