flotex® Flocked Flooring is a completely unique textile flooring that combines the hard wearing and durable characteristics of a resilient floor with the quality, warmth and comfort of a carpet. flotex® consits of a solid vinyl reinforced base layer into which a densely flocked surface of nylon 6.6. fibres are firmly anchored.
flotex® is extremely dimensionally stable and has the optics of a textile floor covering, whilst being as functional and durable (as well as easy to clean) as any resilient floor covering. flotex®is available in both sheet and tile format.
flotex® is a choice, not a compromise. The anti-microbial sanitized® treatment on flotex® ensures consistent protection against bacteria without degeneration through cleaning or vacuuming. It also suppresses the growth of dust mite populations. Therefore flotex® has a positive impact on the lives of allergy sufferers even more as daily vacuuming cleans away twice as many allergens compared to conventional carpets. This is why flotex® carries the British Allergy Foundation seal of approval.

Over 70 million nylon 6.6 fibres per m²

Areas of Use
flotex® must be installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Sub-floors must be level, smooth, hard, clean and dry before laying commences. Uneven, solid or suspended timber floors may need additional preparation to meet the required standard. Where there is direct to-earth concrete it is essential that an effective damp-proof membrane be incorporated. Prior to installation, flotex® must be allowed to relax for 24 hours at a uniform room temperature of between 18°C and 27°C. All sub-floors must be tested for acceptable moisture content in accordance with SANS 10070 prior to the commencement of installation. Note that excessive moisture in the sub-floor will react adversely with the adhesive during the curing period. The recommended adhesive is FloorworX No. 62 acrylic.
NOTE: DO NOT REVERSE sheets for seaming. Install with arrows all pointing in the same direction. Whenever possible, run the arrows toward the main light source. Install sheets running lengthwise in corridors. Butt factory trimmed edges for seaming. Smooth the seams. Do not use a stretcher or knee kicker on flotex®. Trim the excess material at doorways and walls using a carpet knife or edge trimmer with a hooked blade, and use a bolster to press flotex® firmly into the adhesive after trimming.
Supply and fix 4.3mm thick x 2.0m wide flotex® electrostatically flocked textile sheeting or 5.3mm thick x 500mm x 500mm flotex® electrostatically flocked textile tiles, manufactured in accordance with EN 1307 and laid, in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions, in FloorworX No. 62 acrylic adhesive which has been spread using a trowel fitted with an A2 notched blade at a rate of between 5.5m2 and 6.5m2 per litre on a previously prepared Class 1 sub-floor in accordance with SANS 10070, using FloorworX Self Leveller when required, including all cutting and waste. The flooring must be rolled in both directions with an articulated 68kg three-sectional roller immediately after it has been laid into the adhesive. Joins must be tightly butted.
If an installation is large and material has to be stored on site, the following precautions should be taken:
Storage area must be secure and away from other trades
Storage area should be clean, dry and environmentally stable (18 ºC – 23ºC)
Tiles should be stacked at a maximum of 5 boxes per stack on a smooth floor
Sheeting rolls should stand upright
No heavy material should be placed on top of rolls or stacked boxes
Please Note: Temperature variations, excess weight or an uneven floor surface will distort the floor material. For more information please contact the FloorworX Technical Department by sending your query to firstname.lastname@example.org
