Forbo’s textile flocked flooring brand, Flotex, is renowned for its unique, high quality construction, making it one of the world’s most hygienic textile floor coverings. It's suitable for a wide range range of different environments. And for each environment, there are multiple advantages.
Washable and fast drying
Flotex floorings are waterproof, and washable with a range of cleaning products. Even mechanical wet cleaning is supported. As Flotex captures fine dust and allergens in the air, it's important to clean the floor thoroughly. The good news is that the Flotex fibres effortlessly release these allergens and dust during both wet and dry cleaning. And Flotex floorings will dry quickly after wet cleaning.
Due to its unique construction, Flotex is very hygienic. Flotex contains over 70 million upright fibres per m². While floor coverings capture fine dust and allergens from the air, vacuuming Flotex removes twice as many allergens as conventional carpet flooring. This is just one of the reasons Forbo's Flotex flocked flooring has been awarded the highly prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval™.
In some environments, it's vital to have low sound levels - offices and schools are typical examples. Flotex flooring fibres offer up to 22 dB impact sound reduction, delivering levels of comfort and quietness normally only associated with a carpet.
Flotex floorings are slip resistant, in both wet and dry conditions. Particularly important if you are cleaning the floor while people are walking on it.
The toughness and durability of Flotex comes as a result of over 70 million polyamide 6.6. fibres per square metre. All this at the same time as enjoying the comfort and quietness normally associated with a carpet, thanks to the high pile density and impervious cushioned backing.
