As the name implies, safety flooring is used in situations where the need to reduce risk is paramount. In domestic homes, we may accept a certain amount of compromise with regard to the possibility of a slip. Ceramic tiles for example, can pose such a risk, especially just after cleaning. However, this risk may not be acceptable in other environments.
Safety flooring is made from a higher-friction material designed to minimise the danger of slipping. This makes it suitable – and sometimes the only choice – in environments used by elderly and/or vulnerable people, such as care home and day care centres. It is particularly useful in the bathrooms, toilets and changing rooms of these premises. Other environments that often use safety flooring are shops, cafes and public transport.
Typically, these environments also need flooring that satisfies two other key requirements: durability and ease of cleaning. Safety flooring fulfils both of these. It’s tough, resisting even the heaviest foot traffic with ease. And as an impervious material, liquids are easily sponged off its surface, allowing the environment to be kept fresh and hygienic.
