Different Types of Safety Flooring

Safety flooring is essential for many organisations, both commercial and those in the public sector.

There are many different types to choose from, and which is right for you will depend on the nature of your business. However, what they all have in common is that they provide a crucial level of safety for customers, visitors, patients, residents, and staff.

In busy environments such as shops; catering establishments; health, leisure and care facilities; the biggest cause of injuries are trips, slips and falls. Non-slip flooring allows organisations to adhere to health and safety regulations and ensure the safety of their premises.

Why is safety flooring essential?

• Schools, universities, colleges, hospitals, care and nursing homes are high pressure places that require safety flooring that can cope with constant traffic and is easy to clean.

• Health and leisure facilities, swimming pools and spas need a special kind of slip resistance that’s suitable for areas that are constantly wet.

• Catering establishments are prone to water and grease spillages, and hygienic, easy-to-clean and slip-resistant flooring is vital in this environment.

• Industrial settings such as factories and warehouses require specialist flooring that takes into account safety requirements such as the movement of heavy machinery.

• Retail outlets need flooring that’s non-slip, hardwearing and fits in with the rest of the décor.

At 1st Choice Flooring Solutions, we can advise on the right type of flooring based on the needs of your business or organisation.

What type of safety flooring do you need?

Safety flooring can encompass a number of materials, including vinyl, linoleum, rubber and carpet tiles.

Vinyl is a practical choice for many commercial settings at it’s durable, waterproof, and easy to clean. Rolled vinyl has the advantage of being one complete piece that’s cut to size. Therefore, it’s hygienic, with no gaps for grime and bacteria to form.

There are a number of different coatings that will help customise your flooring to suit your particular needs. For example, techniques used in the production of the flooring can produce a texture that’s designed to repel oil or water-based spillages. This makes it perfect for catering venues.

Luxury vinyl tiles can be a good option when you need a hardwearing surface that’s also comfortable to walk on. This is ideal for residential care homes.

In industrial settings, rubber flooring provides a safe solution as it can provide cushioning in factories and anti-static in sensitive, electrical environments.
