How IOBAC Adhesive-Free Magnetic Flooring Works

Think of IOBAC adhesive-free magnetic flooring as being like a fridge magnet

The flooring base is like the fridge – both contain metal elements to which a magnet is attracted.  All IOBAC bases, whether resin or underlay, contain special metallic “para-magnetic” additives. Or you could use the existing metal raised access floor as a base.


And then the floor tile acts like the fridge magnet.  Magnetically backed timber, ceramic and luxury vinyl flooring tiles are available, or clever IOBAC MagTabs can be used to attract standard-backed flooring tiles such as carpet and +4mm LVT to the base.
