Difference between Flotex and carpet

Flotex looks like a normal carpet floor covering. However, the structure of these textile floor coverings is completely different.

Flotex floors

Flotex floor coverings are manufactured with up to 46,000 straight nylon fibers per in². Because the nylon fibers 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 fibers 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.
