LVT and Safety Flooring join forces for school refurbishment
PRODUCTS from two of Polyflor’s LVT and safety flooring ranges were chosen to help refurbish St Wilfrid’s Church of England Academy in Blackburn.
Over 1400sq m of Expona Design PUR LVT and Polysafe Modena PUR safety flooring was installed by local flooring contractors Rishton Floorcraft Ltd.
The grey wood effect Silvered Driftwood shade from the Expona Design collection covered 600sq m in the school’s busy dining hall. The heavy commercial Expona Design PUR LVT collection will provide years of performance in education environments says Polyflor.
Polysafe Modena safety flooring in the Galena and Jetstone shades were installed to provide sustainable wet slip resistance in the academy’s classrooms and corridors. Polysafe Modena flooring features a micro-granite decoration in a selection of neutral and bright shades and incorporates clear aluminium oxide safety particles through the performance layer of the vinyl which are virtually invisible to the naked eye, reportedly ensuring an attractive yet safe floor finish for use in commercial areas such as the education sector.
Modena meets slip resistance requirements, achieving 36+ on the Pendulum Wet Test. Polysafe Modena and Expona Design are enhanced with Polyflor’s PUR polyurethane reinforcement.
These products achieve a BRE A+ rating for major use areas in the education sector and Indoor Air Comfort Gold.
