About Flotex 2

Flotex, the high tech textile

Flotex is neither a true textile, nor is it a resilient flooring. Its unique dense fiber construction succeeds in combining the best of both worlds: comfort & resilience. Flotex offers a flooring solution for areas where safety, hygiene and well-being are in high demand.

Flotex is made up from a solid vinyl, reinforced base with a densely flocked surface of nylon 6.6. fibres, that are anchored firmly into the base layer. It is extremely dimensionally stable and has the optics of a textile floor covering, whilst being as functional, durable and easy to clean as any resilient floor covering.

Flotex product construction

Hygienic & allergy safe

The nylon fibres not only perform in sound absorption and comfort, they also capture allergens and fine dust from the air, all of which they effortlessly release in any cleaning action in both dry and wet conditions. Through its construction Flotex is protected against mould and odours whilst keeping up its appearance, as the floor restores to mint condition after every cleaning action.

Allergy UK seal of approval logo

Flotex is approved by Allergy UK as it has proven to have a positive impact on the lives of allergy sufferers. It has the ability to trap allergens and then safely release them to standard cleaning appliances. When cleaned, Flotex releases twice as many allergens compared to the cleaning of conventional carpets. More harmful allergens are removed, creating a more comfortable environment for asthma and allergy sufferers.

Easy to keep clean

The unique construction of Flotex flocked flooring is what allows to release soiling like no other textile flooring. Unlike the looped and twisted fibers 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.

Simple every day vacuuming removes any dirt or dust trapped in the dense nylon surface. However also steam cleaning or deeper mechanical cleaning can be used after heavy soiling, requiring a minimum of traditional detergents. Simple cleaning action already restores Flotex to its original appearance.

Washable & rapid drying time
Flotex - being completely waterproof - is the only truly washable textile floor covering. Steam cleaning or deeper mechanical cleaning can be used after heavy soiling, requiring a minimum of traditional detergents. And, not less important, Flotex dries quicker then most other textile floor coverings.
Rapid drying time means quick in use after cleaning!

Safe & sound absorbing

Flotex provides both low in-room impact noise performance (class A) as well as good impact sound reduction (>20dB), meaning a quiet room and a quiet building. Flotex also meets the HSE wet and dry slip resistance classifications for use of flat surfaces and ramps.

Allergy safe

Allergy approved flooring

Flotex flocked flooring has been awarded the prestigious “Seal of Approval” from Allergy UK. With the correct cleaning regime, Flotex will not harbour allergens or house dust mites.

With a recent report by Allergy UK estimating that there are at least 12 million people “allergic to their own home” - with 58% citing house dust mites as a key trigger, the importance of floor coverings in creating better indoor environments should not be overlooked.

It’s also an issue that shouldn’t be ignored by educational, healthcare, office establishments, or social care - in fact any place where people are likely to spend a prolonged period.

Zero emission

The clean air flooring

Forbo Flotex exemplifies its unique position as a high tech textile by introducing zero product emission* on all non-digital sheet floor covering. Low volatile organic compounds (VOC) means that Flotex is contributing to a better indoor air climate.
*emissions below detection limit after 28 day according to ISO 19000-9

Zero product emission levels in textiles are unique. This makes Flotex the flooring choice when indoor air quality is a key consideration.

According to the World Green Building Council people spend 90% of their time indoors. And these people form 90% of the costs of a building. Studies have shown that in combination with optimizing ventilation this can gain 8-11% productivity. Therefore, the benefits of designing for a better indoor air climate are enormous.
