About Flotex Linear

Stylish linear designs

Flotex Linear offers a wide choice in both classic and contemporary striped floor designs that feature as sheet or tile, on their own, or mixed together. The 5 designs - Integrity², Complexity, Stratus, Cirrus & Pinstripe - give room for various exciting combinations.

Flotex flocked flooring is a unique textile flooring that combines the hard wearing and durable characteristics of a resilient floor with the quality, warmth and comfort of a carpet. Flotex is made up from a solid vinyl, reinforced base with a densely flocked surface of nylon 6.6. fibers, that are anchored firmly into the base layer.

Extremely dimensionally stable
Flotex is extremely dimensionally stable and has the optics of a textile floor covering, whilst being as functional and durable as well as easy to clean as any resilient floorcovering. Flotex is available in both Sheet and Tile formats.

Durable & comfortable
Discover the toughness and durability of Flotex which comes as a result of the 80 million nylon 6.6. fibres per square metre, while experiencing the quietness and comfort normally only associated with a carpet as a result of the impervious cushioned backing.

Quiet yet hygienic
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 odour’s whilst keeping up its appearance, as the floor restores to mint condition after every cleaning action.

Warm while washable
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. The wide array of colours and designs in which Flotex is offered, remain as vibrant and livery as the day the floor was installed.

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 UK

Allergy approved flooring

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 67% 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.
