Flotex, Balsan, Royal Hali: Comfort for Allergy Sufferers
Flotex: Washable Flocked Velour for Heavy Traffic Area
Forbo Flooring is using Sanitized® for its durable floor covering Flotex. The more than 70 million nylon 6.6 fibers per m2 create the ideal combination of the comfort of a carpeted floor with the benefits of an elastic and noise-absorbing covering. Knowledge gained from bionics was used for the product: Flotex binds the dust of indoor air, and Sanitized® antimicrobial protection ensures that the mites and bacteria it contains are rendered harmless. Not only allergy sufferers but also the material itself benefit as a result. This prevents the formation of mold and unwanted odors and means the continuation of a perfect floor appearance without spot formation and material fatigue. The product was awarded the Allergy UK Seal of Approval. Forbo Flooring is a global player and has been in business for 115 years.
The French company with an extensive commitment to environmental protection specializes in carpet rolls and contract tiles. Balsan has finished 40 different carpet products with the Sanitized® hygiene function, mainly for the private and also for public spheres. Managing Director Bernard Guiraud summed it up as follows: “Our customers know and value Sanitized®.”
Royal Hali Carpets
The relatively new Turkish company (part of NAKSAN Holding) is processing yarns it has manufactured into machine-woven carpets and is distributing them in the domestic market as well as in North Africa, the Near East and Japan. The carpets with the Sanitized® treatment have generated considerable customer interest. The company is actively praising the antimicrobial effectiveness of the carpets on its website.
