> Safety Flooring
We have a wide selection of safety floor products available which have varying specifications depending on the environment they are to be placed within.
A risk assessment is required to be drawn and pointed out for the desired floorplan to ensure that all the potential risks are taken into account, and to determine the type of flooring required. The following should be considered before a flooring selection is made:
- Likely contaminants in the area - Will the flooring receive regular oil, grease, or other forms of contamination, necessitating a more specialist safety floor?
- Maintenance - How is the floor going to be cleaned, and how often?
- Footwear - Is this something that is controlled, or is the area open to the public?
- Activities – What types of events will occur on a daily basis that will affect the flooring, such as will there be machinery that will be transported?
- Life expectancy -You’ll need to consider long term aspects. Which type of flooring will last longer and which one will need less attention to maintenance.
- Health and safety – Flooring must not be cluttered, for instance, with wires. Also if you decide to go for any other flooring apart from carpet, anti-slip resistant would have to be considered.
Effective design is about the creation of safe and clean surroundings for users of the area,staff and visitors alike. The operational requirements of a healthcare, wet or laboratory environment can be inherently complex which need to correspond with the health and safety regulations.
We offer supplies with an anti- slip persistent flooring that protects from environments that are likely to have spillage such as leisure centres. This is done by adding particles within the flooring which determines a rough surface to increase the friction between the foot and flooring. In healthcare, wet and laboratory environments (amongst others), slip-resistant safety flooring may be stated within areas such as corridors, bathrooms, waiting rooms and much more.
