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.

Easy to clean and maintain

Cleaning and maintaining a Flotex floor is much easier than you would think. The straight nylon fibres capture fine dust and allergens, but these are easily released when vacuumed. Actually, vacuuming removes double the allergens on a Flotex floor compared to conventional carpet flooring.

  • Flotex releases up to 76% of original soil after vacuuming compared to 46% for loop pile carpet

  • Flotex releases up to 97% of original soil after spray extraction cleaning compared to 64% for loop pile carpet

  • The dense, upright pile of Flotex completely dries after wet extraction in 4 to 6 hours versus up to 24 hours for loop pile carpet

Flotex is the only textile floor covering to be awarded the prestigious Allergy UK Seal of Approval™ and proven to have positive impact on the lives of allergy sufferers.
