    Flotex borders

    Our Flotex borders help you to be creative when designing your floorspace by offering the ability to frame an area, separate spaces or provide an edge to your floor with a solid insert.

    Flotex borders are uni-coloured strips available in 11 or 22 cm width, which can be used in combination with Flotex Colour or Advance sheet flooring.

Flotex Colour

A world of colour

Choice is about possibilities and choice in design starts with colour. Colour can convey a message without words; it evokes emotions, creates associations and has the power to influence the whole mood and feel of an environment. This is why our designers have created a Flotex flocked flooring collection based entirely on the endless possibilities of colours.

The Flotex Colour collection contains 3 semi-plain design ranges, all of which have a different all-over style and subtle print nuance: Calgary, Metro and Penang.

The Flotex Colour collection is available in sheet and in 50x50 cm tiles.

• The premium quality nylon 6.6. fibres provide superior stain resistance and cleanability.
• The unique construction with densely flocked straight piles ensures effortless stain removal.

• The waterproof backing prevents spilled liquids from penetrating the sub-floor, thus preventing the growth of bacteria, mould and odours.
• The 80 million straight fibres per m2 capture fine dust and allergens, retain them and release them when the floor is vacuumed.
• Flotex contributes to better indoor air quality and is the only textile floor covering with the British Allergy Foundation's seal of approval.

• Thanks to both its impact sound reduction and sound absorption performance, Flotex creates a quiet atmosphere, reduces stress and boosts concentration.
• Flotex offers good slip resistance, reducing the risk of accidents or injuries.

Allergy approved

Creating better indoor environments

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

With a recent report by Allergy UK estimating that there are millions of people “allergic to their own home”, the importance of floor coverings in creating better indoor environments should not be overlooked. Due to its highly dense pile, twice as many allergens are trapped in Flotex's nylon fibres and released upon vacuuming in comparison to conventional carpet. Flotex flocked flooring has been proven to have a positive impact on the lives of allergy sufferers due to its unique properties.

Offering the warmth and comfort of a carpet but with the durability and cleanability of a resilient floor covering, Flotex opens up a world of colour and design to allergy sufferers who previously had to steer clear of textile floor coverings.

The Allergy UK Seal of Approval™ is a globally recognised product endorsement to assure consumers that a product has been independently scientifically tested and proven to be effective in reducing allergens and is approved by a trusted organisation which is committed to helping people affected by allergy.

The dense surface pile make Flotex extremely durable, while its upright polyamide filaments and impermeable PVC backing ensure that the floor can be cleaned right down to the base. The polyamide pile captures airborne allergens and fine dust, which is easily released through vacuuming, contributing to better indoor air quality.
