What is Flotex?
Flotex is our textile flocked flooring brand, which is known for its high quality and unique construction. Because of this unique construction, Flotex is the most hygienic textile floor covering in the world. It is applicable in many different environments and for each environment, it has multiple advantages.
Flotex is the only textile floor covering to receive the Allergy UK Seal of Approval™. Thanks to the unique nylon construction of Flotex, allergens are trapped within its densely packed flocked pile, thereby reducing the number of allergens in the atmosphere. These are then safely released to standard vacuums on cleaning.

Difference between Flotex and carpet
If you are not familiar with Flotex yet, we could understand it looks like a normal carpet floor covering. However, the structure of these textile floor coverings is completely different. We will explain this in more detail.
All our Flotex floor coverings are manufactured by using up to 80 million straight nylon fibres per m2. These are electrostatically flocked into the backing of the floor. Because the nylon fibres in the Flotex floors are standing straight ahead, they capture fine dust and allergens. This unique structure ensures these can be released when vacuumed. That is why Flotex is the only textile flooring with a British Allergy Foundation approval.
Loop pile carpet or loose nylon cut pile fibres also retain fine dust and allergens, however, they’re not easily released due to the complex nature of the surface pile, resulting in bacterial growth and an unhygienic floor over time. Flotex offers the quietness and comfort of a carpet but is far more hygienic.
Flotex is really hygienic compared to other textile floor coverings. It provides 30 percent more soil removal than carpet.
