Flocked Flooring at Sea- Flotex FR

Being able to offer a comfortable and safe environment onboard any vessel or offshore application is important.  With potentially long times spent at sea, being able to maintain a clean floor easily and quickly is essential in order to maintain a level of comfort and cleanliness onboard for crew and/or passengers. At Forbo Flooring Systems, we are conscientious about helping companies to fulfil protect their crew and passengers needs by offering products that are IMO tested and approved, wheelmarked to Marine Equipment Directive (MED).

Flotex FR offers a completely different dimension in flooring as it combines all the hard-wearing and durable characteristics of a resilient floor with the warmth and comfort of a textile floor covering.
