A Healthcare Must Have: Flotex by Forbo Flooring Systems

Despite the plunging economies worldwide during 2011, Forbo Flooring Systems committed to something most companies wouldn’t dream of: They donated $0.42 per square yard ($0.50 per square meter) for all orders of three Flotex flooring collections - Journeys, Calgary and Naturals - to the Alzheimer’s Association. They signed up for a minimum donation of $25,000 and cleared the bar as healthcare flooring specialists that are now also categorized as philanthropists.

In a wide variety, the countless collections that fall under the Flotex flooring solutions umbrellas cater to a contract designer’s every need. Flotex Sheets come in fifteen different patterns that are everything from contemporary designs with geometric, linear angles to all-over, solid designs that accentuate a texture. Flotex Tiles are slightly less varied, with eleven solid color designs that can be arranged in a checkerboard.

Forbo proudly states of their hearty healthcare flooring solutions that “when a hardwearing, practical and hygienic floor covering is required, Flotex Sheet can be relied upon to deliver a flawless expanse of color to cover any area in the most attractive manner.” That said, the same applies to the checkerboard pattern of the 50cm x 50cm Flotex Tiles. In fact,  Forbo also prides themselves  in their green-friendly manufacturing by stating that both post consumer waste and production waste are used as backing for the tiles.

Being slip-resistant, stain-resistant, sanitized with an antimicrobial treatment, ultra durable and 100% waterproof are just a few ways that Forbo Flooring Systems makes their Flotex flooring solutions reach the highest grade of contract flooring designed specifically for the healthcare market.

About the Manufacturer: Forbo Flooring Systems specializes in linoleum floor coverings for the contract market, but their knowledge in linoleum-based flooring products has led them into other professional scenarios. By creating high quality vinyl floor coverings, the Forbo expanses reach a wide range of clients with their environmentally-responsible flooring solutions that are known for durability and contract strength.
