Safety is paramount in the health and care sector. When it comes to flooring, appropriate safety and non-slip products must be used to protect patients, residents, staff, and visitors.
When safety flooring is essential
In the high-pressure, high-traffic environment of health and care facilities, slip-resistant flooring plays a vital role in keeping things moving.
We specialise in the supply and installation of safety and non-slip flooring to the health and care sector. Our solutions enable organisations to ensure their flooring meets the requirements of current health and safety legislation.
Our specialist flooring products not only come with a slip-resistance guarantee, many are manufactured using the latest production techniques to create a texture that repels spillages both water and oil-based.
Working with leading flooring manufacturers, we offer a range of safety flooring solutions that include rubber, vinyl, linoleum and carpet tiles.
Specialist safety flooring
Leading safety flooring manufacturer Gerflor provides outstanding durability and slip-resistant safety flooring with its Tarasafe and Taralay Impression ranges – both extensively used in the health and care sector.
Tarasafe vinyl safety flooring is reinforced with a glass fibre grid to make it durable and hardwearing. It’s designed for heavy use areas with R10-12 slip resistance. The Taralay Impression range is suitable for high traffic areas with R10 anti-slip performance.
Tarkett is another manufacturer of high-quality flooring that takes into account safety, comfort and infection control requirements. Tarkett safety floors are heavy duty, easy to maintain, and designed for heavy use environments such as hospitals and care homes.
Altro is another leading manufacturer of safety flooring solutions for the health and care sector. Their slip-resistant flooring takes hygiene and safety seriously and is ideal for use in specialised environments where flooring can play a part in enhancing physical and mental wellbeing.
Altro slip-resistant flooring solutions are durable, withstand high levels of wear and tear, and have good stain resistance. They come in an array of colours and finishes, making it easy to find the right flooring for any healthcare location.
Vinyl safety flooring
Vinyl flooring is used extensively in health and care settings as it’s hardwearing, water-resistant, and easy to clean. It’s perfect for heavy traffic areas such as wards or corridors that constantly have people walking through them.
With vinyl, any mess can be cleaned up quickly and hygienically, and unlike tiles, there are no gaps for bacteria to lurk. Vinyl is also softer and warmer underfoot than other types of flooring, making it more comfortable in a residential setting.
Forbo provides vinyl safety flooring that’s ideal for many different health care settings. Their innovative solutions offer safe, durable, functional floor coverings that bring an ambience to help patients and residents feel comfortable and relaxed.
Forbo’s Step safety flooring collection is a complete range of products that meet safety requirements across a wide variety of different applications. They’re suitable for general areas and more extreme places, such as wetrooms and other barefoot spaces.
