Flotex Naturals

True to life wood and stone designs

The Flotex Naturals collection offers ultra-realistic designs of natural wood and stone textures that meet the latest design trends. Forbo's high definition printing technology and the high density substrate of Flotex make it possible to create amazingly realistic wood and stone look floors with the added benefits of impressive acoustic and slip resistance properties as well as reduced maintenance costs.

A part of the Flotex Naturals collection is available in sheet and the Marble, Concrete, Seagrass and Wood designs are available in 100x25 cm planks.
Naturals sheet is provided with a Flotex Next backing, which allows both loose lay and glued installation.

• The premium quality nylon 6.6. fibres provide superior stain resistance and cleanability.
• The unique construction with densely flocked straight piles ensures effortless stain removal.

• The waterproof backing prevents spilled liquids from penetrating the sub-floor, thus preventing the growth of bacteria, mould and odours.
• The 80 million straight fibres per m2 capture fine dust and allergens, retain them and release them when the floor is vacuumed.
• Flotex contributes to better indoor air quality and is the only textile floor covering with the British Allergy Foundation's seal of approval.

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

Flotex Next

Fast flooring solution

Flotex Naturals sheet can be ordered with a Flotex Next backing. Flotex Next is an adhesive free textile floor covering backing that can be used in high traffic applications. It can be installed quickly without adhesives, but is even more time and cost efficient at time of replacement.

Not having to use installation adhesive makes Flotex Next very suitable for busy areas: installation time is reduced and there is minimal disruption or lingering adhesive odours. Flotex Next can be walked on immediately after installation.

Who wouldn't want to save time, money and effort?
With Flotex Next only a very short time is needed to prepare the substrate and the installation itself requires a limited number of operations. Only minimal preparation of the subfloor is required and the application of the adhesive and the drying time of the glue do not have to be taken into account. A new floor can be installed with minimal downtime or even without closing the premises.

Each Flotex item has a colourway number. Add the code NX as a suffix behind the colourway number to specify your required Next construction. The minimum order quantity is 50m2.

Allergy approved

Creating better indoor environments

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.
