Phototex Peel & Stick Fabric Transforms floors

In Less than 4  hours Phototex self adhesive fabric has transformed our walls quickly and effortlessly

With the recent expansion of our creative innovation Hub, in Fleet, Hampshire, we needed to make some cosmetic changes, so we set in motion a project to change the flooring. This would also enable us to test and evaluate the user experience of Phototex as a dynamic and transformable printed floor graphic. Our primary objective was to demonstrate the comprehensive benefits of Phototex to those who use it, install it, print it, or would simply appreciate it. Our founder, Derric Landor, consistently pushes the boundaries of Phototex, in extreme and regular tests. His suspicion that it could be utilized as a dynamic flooring, easily installed, and easily changed exceeded once again his expectations.

We have already established the long-term durability and versatility of Phototex in various real-life scenarios, both outdoors and indoors, including on brick and stucco surfaces, moving vehicles, and even on car wheel rims. Therefore, this endeavour aimed to establish and prove the versatility, ease, and satisfaction of phototex as a choice for flooring, by allowing individuals to design and personalize their own floor surfaces. The outcomes of this exercise have pleasantly surprised and delighted us.

Ease of Install, place, reposition and adjust as many times as you like

Our journey began with a challenging task of installing a printed pattern on Phototex as flooring, which proved to be a bit daunting for our inexperienced installer, accustomed to working with posters and small exhibition stands. However, we discovered that the ability to overlay each strip of material greatly facilitated the installation process. Initially, we started with 1.5 x 1m panels, but soon realized that installing longer panels, reaching up to 2-3m, was remarkably easier than applying them to walls. The remarkable feature of Phototex that allowed for effortless removal and repositioning enabled us to remove the liner once we had set the initial placement at the beginning of each panel. Watching a brief video demonstrating the swift installation of Phototex flooring played a crucial role in unlocking the key to our successful project.

The ability to overlay each strip of material made for a much easier installation. When poorly aligned, we were able to easily remove and reposition. We started with 1.5 x 1m panels, but soon realised how much easier flooring is to walls, so we were able to work with panels up to 2m in length, and could do even longer ones! 

 

The ease of removal, and repositioning meant we could remove all the liner once we had set in place the first 20-30cm of the panel. See this quick phototex floor installation video was the key and using our sponge floor cleaner worked fabulously  

 Durable flooring that is easy to install & easy to reposition as needed

In this case the flooring was painted concrete. It also had an unpleasant manhole cover that was vividly visible, and in the winter the floor is quite cold, so we thought how better to provide an independent layer,  reduce the cold from the concrete surface,  and warm up the flooring and have uniform print across the width and breadth of the room. This has in essence provided  as a floor underlay perfectly. Also when we come to changing the flooring if we want to, we can simply install our next design on top! No extra labour or time removing the surface. We can even simulate tiling, wood, marble and any other desirable flooring surfaces

Phototex was coated with Landor’s own protective liquid laminate coating with its own ISO certified anti-microbial coating protection (certified to ISO 22196 standard) With lifetime anti-microbial protection using our own developed coating system, the Landor 1.6m water-based coater provides both ecofriendly and added protection 

We chose Phototex Opaque in this case simply because we did not need the extra strength adhesive for our horizontal application that Phototex EX offers, however we would generally recommend the Phototex EX for professional office or high traffic areas.

As this was a horizontal application it was of course a great deal easier to let it just land on the floor, place it and then smooth it over!
