About

Flotex Tile

TOP 3 Benefits:
• Health & Ecotoxicity
• Take Back Scheme
• SA8000 Certified

Flotex tile is a unique resilient flooring that incorporates carpet's appearance and vinyl flooring's durability (ideal for extreme wear and high traffic areas). The product is comprised of upright polyamide 6.6 pile above a glass fibre reinforced PVC backing, and can be cleaned using standard cleaning equipment. As the upright flocked fibres are firmly anchored into a waterproof backing, it's possible to clean right down to the base of the tile.
