Iobac Magnetic Flooring

Iobac Magnetic Flooring
See IOBAC in action

3M, along with Karndean and Interface® have partnered to create the IOBAC system, a fast, efficient and sustainable way to install and replace flooring. Magnetised luxury vinyl tiles and carpet tiles fix to the IOBAC metallised floor surface without the upheaval, costly disruption and impact associated with traditional adhesives.

Perfect for retail environments, hotels, bars, and restaurants - no need for extended closing when you're replacing the floor covering. Change your floor colour or texture with the seasons, or to support a promotion, the IOBAC system makes it simple. The tiles are simply lifted up, and can be stored for future use - no need for disposal costs.

The IOBAC system also offers revenue generation options. Just as many retailers rent shelf space to suppliers, you can now do the same with your floor. Because the IOBAC system lets you change sections of floor quickly and easily, you can rent or sell them to brand owners, who can adapt the flooring to their corporate design, or even use it to carry advertising messages.

"We chose to specify IOBAC magnetised flooring technology with Karndean Designflooring in the Asda café, as we were looking for a fast, efficient, durable and sustainable way to install the café floor. As the 3M paramagnetic resin sub-floor dries in 60 minutes, the entire installation was completed overnight, ensuring sales were not affected". Mr Christopher Peers - ASDA
