Being proud of its South African roots, this company has made it a focal point to manufacture products that highlight this SA heritage.

With over 60 years of business experience in South Africa, FloorworX is proud of the fact that it manufactures local products that also bear the SANS mark of quality.

Quality control and environmental concerns are key factors when selecting a partner in any building-related product or service. FloorworX’s East London factory is ISO 90001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001-accredited. Keeping South Africa’s health and welfare at heart, FloorworX has implemented various initiatives to ensure the ongoing support of as well as education in the South African building industry.

FloorworX offer installation training on all of their manufactured and distributed products, be it on- or off-site. Training by their international partners in specialist flooring products and applications is also made available on a regular basis.

In addition, FloorworX’s Technical Department is always on standby to assist with technical matters before, during and after the specification and subsequent installation phase of any project. Their National Sales Consultants are also well equipped to answer general queries during specification sessions and/or product presentations.

Sustaining development in the building industry
By supporting various South African architectural organisations through supplier membership, as well as the sponsoring and hosting of CPD-accredited courses, FloorworX ensures continual professional development in the building industry.

In an effort to create awareness of the latest developments in flooring and to equip students for their role in South Africa’s rapidly growing building industry, FloorworX regularly attends open days at various tertiary education facilities.

FloorworX facilitates custom floor inlay design and patterning through the use of aqua-jet technology. The FloorworX Marketing Department is also on standby to assist in the fine-tuning of designs and/or floor inlay concepts to provide the most cost-effective, visually pleasing and fit-for-purpose solution for any project.

Latest developments in technology and design

Since FloorworX is proudly and deeply rooted in South Africa, they also strive to forge long-term partnerships with like-minded companies sharing the same South African heritage and family culture.

As a natural progression, FloorworX and Avance Carpets (also proudly local and established in the South African market) joined forces and introduced FloorworX’s first South African carpet range manufactured in Harrismith at the Nouwens Carpet Mill.

This range, namely Renaissance Carpet Tile, is manufactured locally by Avance Carpets and is an affordable flooring solution for corporate applications. It consists of 100% Solution Dyed Polypropylene and has a good level of colourfastness and UV protection. This range is also available in eight contemporary colours in a scroll pattern, with an aesthetically pleasing look and plush feel.

Considering the hardwearing nature and durability of Renaissance Carpet Tile, it is considered the ideal carpet solution for the corporate environment. As an added highlight, Renaissance Carpet Tiles are specially designed and colour-coordinated for the South African corporate sector.

FloorworX also offers technical advice on sub-floor preparation, provides floor installation support as well as cleaning and aftercare assistance.
