    Forbo has teamed up with British design legend Tibor on an exciting new range for Flotex flocked flooring. Pioneering textile designer Tibor Reich – creator of Tibor - was a man ahead of his time. Although his striking patterns date from the 1950s, they could have been designed yesterday. The cutting-edge technology of Flotex digital printed flooring gives a new lease of life to Tibor's arresting patterns and enables exceptional floor designs.

Flotex the sustainable floor

Allergy UK

Allergy approved flooring

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 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. This is one of the reasons why Forbo's Flotex flocked flooring is the only textile floor covering to be awarded the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval™.
