Safety Flooring

If your business has spaces where there is a risk of an accidental slip or fall, you need to consider safety flooring. Safety flooring is recommended for floors which are highly trafficked or which are likely to get wet.

If your business involves one of the following, safety flooring is a must:

Commercial Kitchen

In a busy commercial kitchen, there is the constant risk of spillage of cooking oil and grease. Grease on the floor will make the surface slippery which will put your staff at risk as they rush around preparing food. Safety flooring should be installed throughout the kitchen.


People go to the gym to get healthy, not to get injured. The gym can be a very sweaty environment and can get damp after a few busy sessions. You do not want your customers slipping, especially if they are in the middle of lifting heavy weights. After a tough workout, customers will look forwards to a refreshing shower to cool off and relax. As they come out of the shower, they will be walking over a wet floor. Safety flooring is recommended for the gym floor, changing rooms, and shower areas.

Bar / Nightclub

When the bar gets busy, your staff will be rushed off their feet ensuring that all the customers get served. Drinks will be spilled and the area behind the bar will become very slippery by the end of the night. We would recommend safety flooring for the bar area. We have a range of designs ranging from the ultra-trendy to the traditional to match your existing design.

Healthcare Areas

Healthcare areas such as clinics and hospitals are used by people who may be sick or infirm. They may be very unsteady on their feet and at risk of falling. At the same time healthcare workers may be hurrying to get to their next patient or to provide emergency care. Safety flooring should be installed in all areas including toilets.
