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.
Washable and fast drying
Flotex floorings are waterproof and washable with many different cleaning products. Even mechanical wet cleaning is possible on this flooring solution. Because Flotex captures allergens and fine dust from the air, it's important to clean the floor in a thorough manner. The good thing is that the fibres of Flotex effortlessly release dust and allergens during both dry and wet cleaning. Flotex floorings will be dry in a very short amount of time when you choose wet cleaning.
As a result of its unique construction, Flotex is exceptionally hygienic. Compared to carpets, Flotex contains over 70 million upright fibres per m2, while carpet has a far more complex structure. Both floor coverings capture allergens and fine dust from the air, but vacuuming Flotex removes twice as many allergens compared to conventional carpet floors. This is one of the reasons why Forbo's Flotex flocked flooring has been awarded the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval™.
In some environments, it's essential to have spaces with low sound levels. Schools and offices are typical examples where noise is not appreciated. The fibres within Flotex flooring coverings offer up to 22 dB impact sound reduction, giving the experience of quietness and comfort normally only associated with a carpet.
Flotex floorings are slip resistant, in dry and wet conditions. This is a big advantage if, for example, you are cleaning the floor while people are walking over it.
Discover the durability and toughness of Flotex, 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. This is a result of the impervious cushioned backing and high pile density.
