Forbo: Metro takes Flotex in a new direction
Forbo has launched Flotex Metro, a stylish and versatile range of flocked floor coverings available in 50 x 50cm tile and 2m sheet format, with a bright palette and understated pattern designed for wide appeal, conveying colour and texture without definite form.
Metro’s textile-like aesthetic lends itself perfectly to heavily trafficked reception areas, corridors and lobbies in hotels, offices and leisure facilities and fits easily within integrated modular floor schemes. The palette of 24 colourways includes 14 contemporary trend shades, confirming the collection as a design-led choice for a wide range of interiors.
Adopting a “4-R’s” approach – “Reduce, Renewable, Reuse, Recycle” - to all product development, Forbo manufactures Flotex Metro tiles with a recycled content of 59% by weight. Flotex designs in sheet format are the only flocked floor coverings to have been assessed under BREEAM, and they achieve an A+ rating.
Made from millions of electrostatically flocked fibres, Flotex combines the looks, warmth, comfort and acoustic properties of a carpet with the hard wearing washability of a resilient. This unique construction has earned Flotex the prestigious Seal of Approval from Allergy UK. Thanks to the highly effective anti-microbial treatment Sanitized®, Flotex also offers constant protection against bacteria, including MRSA, E-coli and the development of moulds and odours.
These unparalleled benefits combined with the introduction of new trend colours and a versatile, textile like aesthetic, makes Flotex Metro the right choice for a wide variety of interiors.
