Flotex in extreme condition areas

Heavy duty textile flooring

  • MoDo Hockey - Hägglunds Arena
  • Flotex SkiStar
  • Train - Flotex Vision FR - junction azure - 000215
  • Fitness centrum spa Moravská Ostrava - Flotex Sottsass Wool

You would never expect heavy ski boots, ice skates or shopping carts on a carpet. On the other hand it would be ideal since the noise that these items normally produce over a hard or ceramic floor is enormous. Flotex is extremely hard wearing and the textile piles will not break. Besides it is also easy to clean so no reason not to choose a textile floor, as long as it is Flotex.

The ideal floor to withstand extreme conditions

From ice skate rings to ski centers and from trains to changing rooms and sport gyms, Flotex stands up to the heavy impact and even under wet conditions it remains slip resistant.

When walking with ice skates it is like walking with knives on your feet and still the floor holds up really well. In addition to cleanability Flotex has good acoustic properties providing a relaxing atmosphere.

  • Thanks to the strong Nylon 6.6 fibers Flotex resists intensive wear caused by extreme conditions

  • Comfortable/quiet warm under foot of a textile floor while most spills can be removed

  • Minimizes risk of slips and falls even in wet conditions

Flotex floors

Flotex floor coverings are manufactured with up to 80 million straight nylon fibres per m². Because the nylon fibres in the Flotex floors are standing straight ahead, they capture fine dust and allergens.

This unique structure ensures these can be released when vacuumed. That is why Flotex is the only textile flooring with a British Allergy Foundation approval.

Carpet floors

Loop pile carpet or loose nylon cut pile fibres retain fine dust and allergens, however, they’re not easily released due to the complex nature of the surface pile, which can result in bacterial growth and an unhygienic floor over time.

Flotex offers the quietness and comfort of a carpet but has a better hygienic performance.
