The Importance Of Safety Flooring August 2012

Safety flooring is an essential component of most commercial buildings and in many cases owners are required by law to make sure that they choose the right flooring for their premises, in order to decrease the risk of patrons slipping or falling.

If you own a commercial building, or even if you simply want to improve the safety in your own home, the right flooring will increase the safety of the space and look great too.

Safety flooring can be beautiful!

Believe it or not, it is possible to choose flooring for your home or commercial premises that is both safe and beautiful. In the past installing a safe floor meant that the floor you chose could end up looking a little industrial, but today there are so many different varieties of safe flooring available that you really are spoiled for choice.

Different types of safety floor

There are literally hundreds of different types, styles and designs of safety flooring out there, so you can pick your floor based on what you like and not on what you need because any floor you choose will be designed to keep those who walk on it safe and look amazing.

Safety flooring is specially designed to be non-slip, cushioning and incredibly durable, whilst still being attractive so that it enhances the décor of the space, rather than detracting from it.

Where to use a safety floor

You can use safety flooring in any type of commercial or domestic building and it’s the perfect addition to all sorts of places such as school classrooms and wash rooms, medical centres, hospitals, commercial kitchens, shops, reception areas, night clubs and even homes.

Flooring that’s safe and hygienic

Safety floors can not only protect from slips and falls, they can also protect from harmful bacteria in places like hospitals. Cap and cove flooring is fitted with a 100mm lip which goes up the walls of the space, making floors much more hygienic and easy to clean, which is ideal in places where there could be high levels of bacteria such as hospitals or commercial kitchens.
