About Flotex planks

Flotex planks: sophistication & style

As modular flooring is a major trend, we've developed different Flotex plank collections in plank sizes of 100x25 cm. Stunning floorplans can be created with the contemporary designs that match every requirement.

Application & use
The versatile Flotex plank designs lend themselves equally well to contemporary or classic office environments as to areas like airport lounges, congress centers, restaurants or hotels.

The Flotex Planks Wood and Seagrass design, because of their natural and warm feel, even go down well in homely environments like housing for the aged and care facilities.

Sophistication & style
Flotex planks offer endless possibilities to mix and match colours within one design. Laying patterns can also create stimulating and lively environments with zigzag motives or herringbone designs. Flotex planks show little repeat in their patterning, creating interesting and beautiful floors even when only one single colour is used.

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 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™.

Environment

A sustainable floor

Green electricity
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.

Water based
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.

Recycled content
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 52% of the backing content.

Extremely durable
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.
