Extremely dimensionally stable

Flotex FR 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. Flotex FR is extremely dimensionally stable and has the optics of a textile floor covering, whilst being as durable and as easy to clean as any resilient floorcovering.

Durable & comfortable

Discover the durability of Flotex FR, which comes as a result of over 70 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 and high pile density.

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 FR has exceptional appearance retention, 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 steam cleaning or deeper mechanical cleaning can be used after heavy soiling, requiring a minimum of traditional detergents. Simple cleaning action already restores Flotex FR to its original appearance. The design and colour of your flooring will remain as vibrant as the day the floor was installed.
