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 (up to 80 million per m2) provide a warm and comfortable surface
• Low in-room impact noise performance as well as good impact sound reduction (>19dB) 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

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 52% 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.

Allergy UK

Allergy UK

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. 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. 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.

Floorcare

Flotex floorcare

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 classifcation, which is shown alongside each product reference number.
