Why choose Flotex FR for rail vehicles?

Flotex FR is made up from a solid vinyl, reinforced base with a densely flocked surface of nylon 6.6. fibres that are anchored firmly into the base layer.

Extremely dimensionally stable
Flotex FR is extremely dimensionally stable and has the optics of a textile floor covering, whilst being as durable and as easy to clean as any resilient floorcovering.

Durable & comfortable
Discover the durability of Flotex FR, which comes as a result of over 70 million nylon 6.6. fibres per square metre, while experiencing the quietness and comfort normally only associated with a carpet as a result of the impervious cushioned backing and high pile density.

Quiet yet hygienic
The nylon fibres not only perform in sound absorption and comfort, they also capture allergens and fine dust from the air, all of which they effortlessly release in any cleaning action in both dry and wet conditions. Through its construction, Flotex FR has exceptional appearance retention, as the floor restores to mint condition after every cleaning action.

Warm while washable
Simple every day vacuuming removes any dirt or dust trapped in the dense nylon surface. However also steam cleaning or deeper mechanical cleaning can be used after heavy soiling, requiring a minimum of traditional detergents. Simple cleaning action already restores Flotex FR to its original appearance. The wide array of colours and designs in which Flotex FR is offered, remain as vibrant and livery as the day the floor was installed.

Safe & sound absorbing
Flotex FR provides good impact sound reduction (>22dB) and meets the slip resistance classification EN13893 (µ ≥0.30).

High definition digital print

As Flotex FR flocked flooring has over 70 million fibres per square metre, it provides a matte high-density substrate for printing, enabling vibrant designs and true to life visuals that can be produced in high level photographic resolutions.

Endless design options

Digital printing is well suited to designs that require visual detail and effects that cannot easily be reached through conventional printing. Flotex Vision FR contains over 500 individual items.

Design Themes
To give you some guidance and offer you a logical design path we have created different categories within the library, each of them representing a different design style (i.e. linear, geometric, naturals…). In addition to the standard items in the library, we also offer the option to create your own bespoke colourways on some designs, which can be seen via the digital library.

Bespoke Design
It is also possible to create your own unique designs. This is not part of the online library but can be discussed with your local Forbo Transport Key Account Manager. You can also email us: transport@forbo.com for more details.
