Health & Hygiene

Hygienic flooring

Machine oil, sports drinks and splashes of sweat ingrained in the floor are part and parcel of daily life in busy sport environments. Therefore a floor that is easy to clean and maintain is a must to ensure a hygienic and welcoming place to work out.

For the sports area, we recommend our Flotex collection. This collection is easy to clean and maintain and will contribute to a sport environment where people can work out in a safe and hygienic place.

Devere Flotex Vision


Flotex is a unique textile floor covering that combines the hard-wearing and durable characteristics of a resilient floor with the quality, warmth and comfort of a carpet. Flotex is a strong and hygienic floor, and being completely waterproof, it is also the only truly washable textile floor.

The unique construction of Flotex flocked flooring is what allows to release soiling like no other textile flooring. Unlike the looped and twisted fibers of a conventional carpet tile, the smooth straight fibres of Flotex do not trap particles of soil, allowing them to be removed without difficulty during cleaning. Most spills can be cleaned with plain water.
