When flooring public areas, safety plays a key role in the choice of product you will choose. Some environments demand safety flooring to prevent slips and to comply with the law, which states walking surfaces must be safe. We specialise in safety floor coverings for hospitals, dentist surgeries, kitchens, toilet areas, changing rooms, and other commercial institutions. We also supply GP and veterinary surgeries, where safety flooring and hygiene is imperative. There is now a wide of safety flooring products, designs, and colours available. Safety floor coverings will need to be hard wearing, in many cases waterproof and stain resistant, and be able to withstand heavy footfall and wheeled traffic.
Safety flooring has increased slip resistance, in order to protect people from unnecessary accidents. It does this by incorporating aggregates into the material, in order to penetrate the wet layer caused by bad weather or spillages to provide greater grip.
Rubber is a highly resilient and versatile flooring choice. It is well-suited to both commercial and residential locations due to its anti-slip, durable and visually appealing characteristics. Rubber flooring also has additional benefits, being resistant to fading, burns, and daily wear.
Our range of non-slip flooring is a necessity for creating a safe environment within high traffic commercial and domestic areas. With the increased risk of slips and trips in areas with frequent water usage and spillages alongside high-risk and hazardous environments makes non-slip flooring an essential factor in minimising injury. At Kennington Flooring we have a variety of non-slip flooring with a large choice of colours and materials to suit your needs.
