Forbo Flooring Systems is manufacturer to the unique, flocked floor covering, Flotex. Our Flotex product combines the warmth and comfort of a textile floor covering with the hard-wearing properties of resilient flooring, not to mention its ease of cleaning and maintenance. All of these qualities can benefit the rail industry substantially but Flotex’s most appealing benefit has to be the diverse design solutions it can offer. Flotex can be digitally printed, opening up a world of opportunity for Forbo Flooring clients. Our Flotex Vision collection does just that. “Flotex Vision can offer a vast array of commercial designs in a large range of colours”, says Senior Designer Sophie Beddington, “with limited opportunity to communicate branding in rail vehicles, flooring is very important because it provides comfort and improves the overall interior. A good flooring design will add personality to the small space available in trains.” The Flotex Vision range offers many established designs well suited to a rail environment; transit, helix and cord to name a few. The linear nature of these designs will enhance the space within rail vehicles, making it appear larger. The patterns are a point of visual interest for passengers and can portray branding successfully, whilst the robust flocked material ensures durability and reduces life cycle costs for rail operators.
Vision designs are offered in a variety of colours but if the colours you’re looking for are not there why not go bespoke and have your brand colours integrated into the design? The beauty of Flotex is that the possibilities are endless. Our Vision range offers a world of choice but if there’s a special design you’re after, whether it is brand colours, patterns or a logo, the Flotex design team can create a solution tailored to your needs.
