About Flotex

Flotex: style & unique performance

Forbo's Flotex Flocked Flooring is a unique textile flooring that combines the hard wearing & durable characteristics of a resilient floor with the quality, warmth and comfort of a carpet.

Durable & comfortable
Flotex 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. It is extremely dimensional stable and has the optics of a textile floor covering, whilst being as functional, durable and easy to clean as any resilient floor covering.

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 odours whilst keeping up its appearance, as the floor restores to mint condition after every cleaning action.

Safe & sound absorbing
Thanks to both its both good impact sound reduction and sound absorption performance, Flotex creates a quiet atmosphere, reduces stress and boosts concentration. Flotex also offers good slip resistance, reducing the risk of accidents or injuries.

Allergy approved

Allergy approved flooring

Forbo's Flotex flocked flooring is the only textile floor covering to be awarded the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval™.

With a recent report by Allergy UK estimating that there are millions of people “allergic to their own home”, the importance of floor coverings in creating better indoor environments should not be overlooked. 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. Flotex flocked flooring has been proven to have a positive impact on the lives of allergy sufferers due to its unique properties.

Offering the warmth and comfort of a carpet but with the durability and cleanability of a resilient floor covering, Flotex opens up a world of colour and design to allergy sufferers who previously had to steer clear of textile floor coverings.

The Allergy UK Seal of Approval™ is a globally recognised product endorsement to assure consumers that a product has been independently scientifically tested and proven to be effective in reducing allergens and is approved by a trusted organisation which is committed to helping people affected by allergy.

Durable production
• Controlled supply chain certification – ISO 140001 and 9001 standards and SA8000 for ethical supply chain.
• All Flotex products are manufactured with 100% green electricity and have very low product emissions.
• 86% of the factory waste is recycled.
• Flotex sheet contains up to 20% and Flotex tiles and planks up to 59% recycled content.
• Water-based inks and dyes are used for production.
• No additional chemical processes take place other than high temperature steam treatment to secure the colours.

Long lasting & healthy floor
• Flotex has a product lifetime that surpasses that of ordinary textiles.
• Flotex is 100% phthalate free.
• Only 100% safe and traceable REACH compliant materials are used.

LCA & EPD

Transparency with every step

Being transparent is one of the key elements of our sustainability strategy and therefore we would like to have evidence that our flooring is truly sustainable, both for the planet as well as for our health.

Forbo uses Life Cycle Assessments to identify and continuously improve the environmental performance of our floors. Our independently verified Environmental Product Declarations provide a framework for measuring a building’s environmental footprint and give you the information you need to make a sustainable decision.
