New Metro – Taking Flotex floorcovering in a new direction

As the popularity of modular flooring products continues to grow, Forbo has launched Flotex Metro, a stylish and versatile range of flocked floorcoverings available in tile (and sheet) format. Metro’s bright palette and understated pattern, conveying colour and texture without definite form, has wide appeal and fits easily within integrated modular floor schemes.

Flotex has already established itself as a unique floorcovering combining the benefits of resilient flooring and carpet. Now, new Metro is taking Flotex in a new design direction. The subtle textile like aesthetic lends itself perfectly to heavily trafficked spaces such as reception areas, corridors and lobbies in hotels, offices and leisure facilities.

Flotex Metro comprises 24 colourways including 14 contemporary trend shades, confirming the collection as a design-led choice for a wider range of interiors. Metro tiles in a 50x50cm modular format are offered alongside the two-metre wide sheet option. These tiles can be installed ‘broadloom’ or ‘tessellated’ to deliver an unusual chequerboard effect, and may also be combined with other modular products as part of an integrated solution.

Forbo has adopted a ‘four-Rs’ approach – Reduce, Renewable, Reuse, Recycle – to all product development and Flotex Metro tiles are manufactured with a recycled content of 59% by weight, while Flotex sheet is the only flocked floorcovering to have been assessed under the BREEAM scheme, achieving an A+ rating.

Made from millions of electrostatically flocked fibres, Flotex has the looks, warmth, comfort and acoustic properties of a carpet but is as hardwearing and washable as a resilient floor finish. This unique construction traps allergens and safely releases them to standard vacuum cleaners, earning 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.
