Safety can be spectacular
MYERSCOUGH College is a higher and further education college dating back to the 19th century.
When new flooring had to be installed, it was a task perfectly suited to Gerflor’s Taralay Impression Control and Tarasafe safety flooring ranges, the company says.
The responsibility for the installation fell to CRT Flooring Specialists in Lancashire.
Chris Turner, md, commented, ‘We specified Gerflor’s Taralay Impression Control for corridors which was a perfect choice as it’s a Group T rated product which means it will wear very well’.
Gerflor won the 2016 CFJ/CFA Product of the Year category with their Taralay Impression Control safety flooring range.
Available as a dual collection the range includes reportedly realistic woods. Taralay Impression Control is also said to have a Pendulum Test value +36, meet HSE guidelines, a surface roughness of >20 RTM-RZ and R11 ramp test value (DIN 51130), together with providing 24 design-led colourways.
Taralay Impression Control also reportedly offers a hygienic solution for cleaning and maintenance thanks to its UV cured PUR surface treatment.
With the Protecsol Control surface treatment it’s said to be easy to clean, and 100% recyclable.
Chris further said, ‘we also specified the Tarasafe Ultra H20 safety flooring range because it does exactly what Gerflor says it does. Great slip resistance in the wet, with or without shoes.’
Within Gerflor’s Tarasafe vinyl safety flooring range there are over 80 finishes available.
They are reportedly reinforced with a glass fibre grid and are suitable for use in all areas of heavy traffic where slip-resistance, durability and hygienic conditions are required.
The range meets the EN Standard 22196 for anti-bacterial.
The Tarasafe Standard range comes with the UV cured PUR surface treatment.
