How IOBAC Magnetic Flooring Works


The easiest way to understand how IOBAC magnetic flooring works is to think of a fridge magnet.


Think of the flooring base as being the fridge – it contains metal to which a magnet is attracted.  All IOBAC bases, whether resin or underlay, contain special metallic “para-magnetic” additives for this reason. Or you could use an existing metal raised access floor.


And then the floor tile is the magnet.  Magnetically backed timber, ceramic and luxury vinyl flooring tiles are available, or if your selected tile is only available with a standard backing, clever IOBAC MagTabs can be used to attract the tile to the base.  


See the 3 easy steps to selecting an IOBAC magnetic flooring system below.

  • Minimal preparation is required – no sealants, primers or plywood bases needed


  • Often possible to go straight over existing flooring with no uplift required

  • Choose from:

    • Ezy-Install™: a dry-laid acoustic underlay

    • The existing metal raised access floor

    • IOBAC Express Cure or High Grab Resin

  • Fit standard tiles including carpet and +4mm Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) using IOBAC MagTabs™

  • Install magnetic backed tiles such magnetic timber, ceramic and LVT direct
