    The digital world of Flotex

    High definition digital print
    With a smooth, velour like surface that looks and feels like a carpet, Flotex is the perfect textile substrate for vibrant designs and true to life visuals which can be produced in high level photographic resolution. All desired colour shades and hues can be achieved.

    Fantastic effects
    Digital print offers an infinite number of design options ranging from abstracts with intricate colour spectrums to realistic images of natural materials like sand, grass and water. Create 3D depth or a “trompe d ‘oeil” effect on your floor. Or bring nature into your room by choosing a floor covering with autumn leaves or flowers.

    Endless design options
    Digital printing is also well suited for those collections that require visual detail and effects that cannot easily be reached through conventional print. Our Flotex custom flooring collection contains more than 500 individual items.

    Colour your own
    Do you like the design, but you cannot find the colours you want? A large number of designs can be recoloured to perfectly match the colour selection you prefer!

    Bespoke design
    You can also create something bespoke for a truly individual solution. Whether it be photography, commercial branding or specific Pantone references, we can work to match your requirements. We offer a bespoke design service on request, please contact your local sales representative for more information.

    Flotex benefits

    Flotex: the high-tech textile

    Flotex is unique compared to other textile floors because of the fibre construction. By combining a high-density flocked surface with a heavy-duty resilient foundation Flotex offers the best of both worlds in terms of performance and comfort.

    Comfortable & quiet
    • The densely placed fibres provide a warm and comfortable surface
    • Low in-room impact noise performance as well as good impact sound reduction (20dB) ensure quieter environments
    • The wide range of designs create a pleasing floor covering for any environment

    Safe & secure
    • Flotex meets the HSE wet and dry slip resistance classifications for use on flat surfaces and ramps
    • The grip of the surface of a Flotex floor provides confidence underfoot
    • The non-fray construction avoids trip hazards
    • Flotex is ultra-low in emissions and is phthalate free

    Hygienic & washable
    • The nylon 6.6 fibres capture allergens and fine dust from the air, all of which are effortlessly removed by vacuuming
    • For spills, Flotex can be cleaned using water and a brush
    • Steam cleaning or deeper mechanical cleaning with minimal detergent can be used after heavy soiling
    • Regular cleaning restores Flotex to its original appearance without wearing and fading
    • Flotex is the quickest drying textile floor covering for less down-time after cleaning
    • Thanks to its technical and bacteriostatic properties, Flotex prevents mould and odours

    Allergy UK

    Creating better indoor environments

    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 that is easy to clean. 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. A Flotex floor secures good indoor air quality which is important for allergy sufferers, and is therefore awarded the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval™ from the British Allergy Foundation.

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

    Soiling classification

    Flotex soiling classification

    In circumstances where the design of the entrance system is inadequate for the level of traffic or unsuited to the type of soiling entering the building, dirt and moisture may be carried onto the surface of the interior floor covering.

    Hiding dirt
    Flotex is able to 'hide' soiling to a greater or lesser degree depending on its colour and design. Using objective testing methods, we have graded each of the Flotex designs on their ability to hide 'general' dirt. The result of this testing is a soiling classification, which is shown alongside each product reference number.
