Flotex is made up from a solid, inert, non toxic vinyl, reinforced base with a densely flocked surface of nylon 6.6. fibers, that are anchored firmly into the base layer. It is extremely dimensionally stable and has the optics of a textile floor covering, whilst being as functional, durable and easy to clean as any resilient floor covering.
Discover the toughness and durability of Flotex which comes as a result of the 80 million nylon 6.6. fibers per m2, while experiencing the quietness and comfort normally only associated with a carpet as a result of the impervious cushioned backing.
The nylon fibers not only perform in sound absorption and comfort, they also capture allergens and fine dust from the air, all of which they effortlessly release in any cleaning action in both dry and wet conditions. Through its construction Flotex is protected against mold and odors whilst keeping up its appearance, as the floor restores to mint condition after every cleaning action.
Simple every day vacuuming removes any dirt or dust trapped in the dense nylon surface. However also steam cleaning or deeper mechanical cleaning can be used after heavy soiling, requiring a minimum of traditional detergents. Simple cleaning action already restores Flotex to its original appearance. The wide array of colors and designs in which Flotex is offered, remain as vibrant and livery as the day the floor was installed.
Flotex provides both low in-room impact noise performance (class A) as well as good impact sound reduction (>20dB), meaning a quiet room and a quiet building.
