Create Better Indoor Environments With Forbo

Flotex and Marmoleum from Forbo Flooring Systems are the only floor coverings to have been awarded the prestigious “Seal of Approval” from Allergy UK as, with the correct cleaning regime, they will not harbour house dust mites or pet allergens.

The beauty of Flotex is that it offers the texture and warmth of carpet, yet its unique composition, made up from millions of electrostatically flocked nylon fibres, offers the hardwearing and washablecharacteristics of a resilient floor.  It’s these tightly packed nylon fibres that trap airborne allergens before safely releasing them to standard vacuum cleaners. In fact, tests show that twice as many allergens are removed from Flotex on vacuuming compared to conventional carpets.  Flotex also benefits from its integral anti-microbial treatment Sanitized®, which ensures constant protection against bacteria, as well as mould and stale odours. 

Inherently hygienic, anti-static and easily cleaned thanks to its Topshield finish, the smooth surface of Marmoleum provides no hiding place for dust mites or pet allergens. This sustainable floor covering, made from 97% natural raw materials, 72% of which are rapidly renewable, and with 43% recycled content, hasmore environmental quality marks than any other floor covering product. 

Julie Dempster, Marketing Manager for Forbo Flooring Systems, said: “Our Marmoleum and Flotex ranges are independently and scientifically proven to reduce exposure to allergens, and thanks to the wide range of colours, designs and different formats available, this can be achieved without compromising on style.”
