Safety Flooring

We stock a wide range of safety flooring which is essential in many environments such as care homes, schools and hospitals. It is important to follow the stipulations of the Health and Safety Executive regarding the flooring’s slip resistance values (SRV) and surface roughness so that the flooring is capable of maintaining its slip resistance throughout its life cycle and expected foot traffic.

Non Slip flooring

As an experienced anti slip flooring retailer in the Liverpool area, we are able to advise on all types of safe and cushioned floors to meet our clients’ requirements. Key factors to consider are any scuffing that may occur with wheelchair traffic or other types of walking aids which could cause dangerous dents and obstacles, and anything that could be a hindrance to the visually impaired.

Sparkle floors are one of the types of flooring to avoid in these applications, as they can cause problems for the visually impaired or for people suffering from any stage of dementia. In these cases, the floor appears wet and dangerous.

Cushioned Flooring

Cushioned floors are important in school sports halls and other public leisure facilities. These ensure that pupils or other visitors will remain injury-free during most sports activities which include the danger of falling. As a leading specialist safety flooring supplier Liverpool and the greater Merseyside region has seen a significant number of our non-slip flooring installations.

Safety flooring in any premises has to be versatile enough to blend with different types of flooring, for example between public spaces and a private office. It is important to ensure that two different materials positioned alongside each other do not create the illusion of a step, even to the fully sighted. We can provide and blend two different types of flooring over a large enough area to maintain both versatility and safety.

The greatest consideration should be given to the flooring used on stairs. The risk of slips and trips can be significantly reduced by making the stair nosings in a contrasting colour to those of the tread.

High footfall flooring invariably requires regular cleaning. It is vital that cleaning the flooring does not create an even greater risk of slippage when the floor is wet and its slip resistance is reduced to almost zero. Modern cleaning technologies can significantly reduce this risk.
