Our Story

Flooring, Future Proofed

Welcome to IOBAC, a forward-thinking technology company intent on revolutionising material circularity

“There Must Be A Better Way”


Pronounced as “I-Owe-Back” to the environment, our company was founded on the belief that there had to be a better way to manage flooring throughout its life-cycle.

Having witnessed the high levels of wasted time, materials and cost associated with traditional flooring techniques, our vision was simple:

“To streamline the flooring process, making it as sustainable, cost-effective and flexible as possible for all involved, specifiers, contractors and end-users alike.”



IOBAC I-OWE-BACK Flooring Sustainability

Rethinking Flooring


One of our key objectives was to develop flooring installation technologies that faciltate flooring reuse, eliminate flooring landfill waste and reduce the costs involved in rectifying contaminated sub-floors.

The result?

A patented adhesive-free magnetic flooring system that holds floor coverings securely, yet enables them to be cleanly uplifted contamination-free with no damage to the sub-floor.

Award-winning products that have since been approved and/or used by leading flooring manufacturers and specified globally in key projects with prestigious end-user clients.

And as our technology portfolio has expanded, sustainability has always been fundamental to what we do.

From ensuring our technologies contain recycled components wherever possible, to developing Ezy-Warm Underfloor Heating which can be powered by renewable energy sources.


What People Say About Us

Brian Beakler headshot

“When I first saw IOBAC’s technology in 2012, it opened my eyes as to how flooring has to change.


As true innovators, IOBAC had the foresight back then to see how important taking an adhesive-free flooring approach would be.


Most importantly, they also had the technical expertise to go on and develop commercialised solutions that deliver real benefits.”
