Style and safety for extra care apartments
A VARIETY of Polysafe safety flooring and Expona LVT from POLYFLOR were recently used to complete the construction of Needham House, a housing development of extra care apartments in Devizes, Wiltshire.
Over 2000sq m of Polyflor vinyl flooring was installed by Bristol-based contractors English County Contracts in the 47 self-contained apartments and communal areas.
Expona Commercial PUR LVT in the Light Classic Oak design were selected for the building entrance and lobby areas, the dining hall, staircases, circulation areas and corridors between the apartments. The Expona Commercial collection features wood, stone and abstract effects, which are suitable for interior spaces where there is likely to be a high level of foot traffic.Polysafe Wood fx PUR safety flooring in Classic Oak was installed inside each of the apartments to provide sustainable wet slip resistance in the fully fitted kitchens.
Another safety flooring product, Polysafe Verona PUR in the Café Noir shade, was used to create safe working environments for staff. The Polysafe Verona range features virtually invisible slip resistant particles and complementary tonal chips, said to offer the look of a smooth vinyl floor but the performance of a safety floor.
The Polysafe Wood fx and Polysafe Verona safety flooring ranges are reportedly fully HSE Compliant and classified as low slip potential, achieving 36+ on the Pendulum Wet Test and meeting the 50,000 cycles abrasion test which assures slip resistance for the guaranteed life of the product.
