    Am thinking of putting this in my van. I understand that it doesn't need edging, and can use originals as template.
    Hopefully creates less dust than normal carpets.
    Has anyone any experience of these carpets? Ta

    Hi, we did this to keep our very pale original carpets in good condition.
    Bought a roll end off tinternet, laid it out on the drive and used the originals as stencil. Cut with good scissors. Brilliant job, easy cut, fit & clean. Recommend it(y)

    We fitted Floatex to the floor of our shop many years ago. Was the best floor covering we could have chosen. Hard wearing, easy to clean and stays put. Only downside I can see is it is rather heavy.

    We recently bought some 18" X 18" (in old money!) Square carpet tiles which are brilliant. Dead easy to fit, but the bonus is that if you waste some thing that cannot be removed you just replace the tile. Ours cost about £1 each, look around the local carpet shops and look for their end of lines, you want need as lot.

    Flotex is an excellent carpet for a motor home, easy to clean and not affected by water. Available 2m & 1.5m wide so economical, cuts easily and does not fray.
