Commerical flooring solutions article

As flooring specialists, we’re highly experienced in providing flooring solutions to a range of sectors including:

• NHS and other healthcare premises
• Schools and educational establishments
• Industrial workplaces and factories
• Public sector buildings such as MOD departments and libraries
• Retail outlets
• Offices

The type of flooring you require will very much depend on the activities of your organisation. For instance, in a fast-moving environment like a hospital, safety flooring is imperative, whereas a factory will require a solution that’s strong and hardwearing.

Here we take a look at some of the options available for different working environments.

Hardwearing flooring solutions for high-use areas

Vinyl and rubber flooring are used extensively in factories, schools, care homes, health and leisure centres and other places where there’s intense activity and a high footfall.

In these environments, it’s vital to have a flooring solution that’s durable and water-resistant. Vinyl and rubber surfaces are easy to clean and dirty footprints and spillages can be mopped up quickly.

It’s these qualities that make this type of flooring ideal for corridors and factory floors that are constantly in use. These surfaces are also soft and warm underfoot, making for a more comfortable workplace.

Safety flooring solutions for busy environments

Slip-resistant safety flooring is a must-have for many industries. Because slips, trips and falls are the most common cause of injuries in the workplace, extensive health and safety legislation is in place to ensure safety at work.

In challenging environments such as hospital wards, veterinary surgeries and care and nursing homes, it’s crucial to safeguard your employees, visitors and residents. But all of these workplaces are very different. However, when it comes to safety flooring, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Non-slip flooring, linoleum, rubber and carpet tiles are just some of the solutions that can be used to solve the issue of slips and trips. Depending on your environment, you may need an option that can be cleaned quickly and hygienically. Preferably, your flooring should have no gaps for bacteria to grow. Unlike tiles, our flooring solutions offer a smooth surface that’s easy to maintain.

We partner with leading brand flooring specialists including Altro, Forbo, Gerflor, Polyfor and Tarkett, so we can offer our customers the very latest safety flooring products that meet strenuous health and safety guidelines.

Practical and durable flooring solutions for offices and libraries

For office and library-type settings, carpet tiles can be a flexible and durable option.

There are many practical benefits of carpet tiles, and one of the most important is the ease with which they can be fitted. Rather than having to cut a large roll of carpet to size, tiles can be individually cut to fill any angle or space.

You also have the option of replacing individual tiles instead of having to replace the whole carpet. This means worn sections in heavy footfall areas, or tiles with spillages, can be swapped out for new tiles.

Other durable options for offices include vinyl flooring, linoleum and customised carpeting with your company brand or logo.

Anti-static flooring solutions for hazardous environments

Anti-static flooring reduces the risk of electrocution in hazardous environments. We supply and install ESD (Electro-Static Dissipative) anti-static commercial flooring.

This type of flooring solution is used in areas where electrostatic charge is a problem with sensitive equipment. This could be in the electronics industry, medical sector and other high-tech environments. It works to minimise electrostatic discharge at source.

If you work in this type of environment, our specialists can advise the correct ESD flooring product for your application.
