Not a location where you would expect a carpet. But it would help to reduce noise, support slip or trip accidents and increase a luxury feel. With Flotex this is simply possible.

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.

    When furnishing a university library, the choice of materials is determined by maintenance. For the floor finish, the University of Antwerp therefore chose Flotex flocked flooring. Flotex combines the ease of maintenance of a vinyl or tile floor with the look of a carpet. Flotex also created atmosphere and good acoustics in these university spaces.
