What is Safety Flooring?
Safety flooring is specially designed for commercial spaces or work environments to ensure there are no accidents. As non-slip flooring which is hard wearing, this type of vinyl floor is perfect for public spaces, such as schools, shops, or hospitals.
The Benefits of Safety Flooring
The main benefit of safety flooring is the non-slip properties. Accidents at work and in public spaces are unfortunately common due to not having the proper flooring installed. This type of flooring ensures nobody gets hurt. It’s also anti-bacterial, which makes it the most popular flooring in many industries.
This anti-slip flooring is made from high-quality vinyl, which is highly durable and incredibly easy to clean and maintain. On top of that, this versatile style of flooring can recreate the look of solid wood or tiles, while being incredibly affordable.
Where Can Safety Flooring Be Used?
As stated, safety flooring is intended for public or commercial spaces. This means this type of flooring is very popular for:
- Care homes
- Leisure facilities, such as gyms or swimming pools.
As well as being intended for public spaces, anti-slip flooring can still be used around your home. It is ideal if you have little ones that are often running around and making a mess. It’s also suited to homes of the elderly to ensure their safety. It’s also ideal if your home doubles up as a workspace, for example, if you are a childminder.
The Different Safety Flooring Ranges
While all these floors are perfect for public spaces, the three ranges feature different qualities and may be more suited to particular areas.
Safety Flooring Plus
This range offers the most options when it comes to colours, featuring everything from blood red to mild grey. This flooring also boasts a unique incorporated bacteriostat, which helps prevent the growth of bacteria, making this flooring a firm favourite for hospitals. This floor also has an R10 slip resistance rating, so it’s ideal for wet areas such as bathrooms.
Safety Flooring Contract Safe
This range comes in a variety of styles including plain colours or a wooden effect. The slip resistance rating is R11, making it one of the highest ratings amongst our safety floors and a popular option around swimming pools. Most importantly, these floors boast a 5-year contract warranty to offer further peace of mind.
Safety flooring Polysafe
Polysafe floors come in a range of colours including pastel hues such as lilac and alpine green, but also classic shades such as black and grey. This type of flooring typically features a slip resistance rating of R10 and has been treated to prevent the growth of the MRSA bacteria, making it another popular option for hospitals. On top of this, many of these floors have a 10 year warranty.
The Different Styles of Safety Flooring
Although this flooring is intended for safety and practicality, it is also an attractive option for any space. Safety flooring consists of vinyl, which means it can replicate an abundance of styles.
For example, you can achieve the look of wooden floorboards in shades such as blonde oak or golden oak. These light warm hues are perfect for commercial spaces such as libraries or shops. There is also a grey wooden floor, which is a stylish option for workplaces such as offices and can create a modern aesthetic.
For something a little more versatile, many of the vinyl floors come in a striking mottled effect. These are available in a range of colours, including black, pearl grey, burnt orange, leaf green, toffee brown or dusky blue. These options ensure you can personalise your space as much as possible and help bring a pop of colour into commercial areas.
