Vinyl floors are very popular because of their durability, low maintenance and versatility. Homogeneous vinyl is made of 1 single layer that offers vibrancy and depth of color. It is incredibly durable and stain resistant which makes it a great flooring choice for heavy traffic areas. .
Flotex is a unique textile floor covering that combines the hard wearing and durable characteristics of a resilient floor with the quality, warmth and comfort of a carpet. Flotex is a strong and hygienic floor, and being completely waterproof, it is also the only truly washable textile floor.
Carpet tiles are renowned for their aesthetic styling and outstanding performance in the most demanding heavy traffic environments. Forbo Flooring offers a wide portfolio of tufted (Tessera), fusion bonded (Westbond) and flocked (Flotex) carpet tiles. New are the Flotex and Tessera planks of 100x25 cm whith which stunning floor designs can be created.
Colorex is Ideal for laboratories, IT-rooms and cleanrooms. Colorex satisfies the strictest requirements for particle release behaviour, helping to reduce any threat of contamination. Reducing the generation of electrostatic charges is the main purpose of control measures in ESD protected areas (EPA). In such areas like electronics assembly, mechatronics and datacenters the right floor covering plays a crucial role. It does not only drain electrostatic charges from personnel and equipment, but it also reduces the generation of charges there where they occur, at the interface between the shoe soles and the floor.
