Combining properties found in conventional resilient and textile flooring, electrostatically flocked floor coverings provide a unique flooring solution: safe, hygienic, durable and washable like a resilient, yet at the same time offering the warmth, comfort, acoustic characteristics and slip resistance of textile flooring. These properties, together with a phenomenal choice of designs in sheet, plank and tile formats, make Flotex a very attractive and practical proposition, especially for customers in the retail, hospitality, leisure and education sectors.
The dense surface pile makes Flotex extremely durable, while its upright nylon filaments and impermeable PVC backing means it can be cleaned right down to the base. The nylon pile captures airborne allergens and fine dust, which is easily released through vacuuming, thereby contributing towards better indoor air quality – indeed Flotex is the only textile to carry the Allergy UK Seal of Approval™.
Cleaning Research International also tested the drying characteristics of Flotex alongside six different carpet constructions, subjecting each floor covering to two passes using an industrial spray extraction machine and measuring the remaining moisture content after various intervals to establish drying times.
