Benefits of Safety Flooring

 

Safety flooring is made of vinyl, silicon carbide, quartz and aluminium oxides materials, that give it a non-slip finish that's ideal for the education and healthcare sectors. Having a slip-resistant floor is extremely important for hospitals, as you have a variety of different people visiting your establishment on a daily basis. You want your visitors to feel safe and protected when travelling through your hospital, some flooring types are not suitable as they’re too slippery for wheelchair users or elderly patients. A safety flooring installation is suitable to use for a variety of people with different ages and mobility capabilities! Safety flooring is also hygienic as it does not harbour any bacteria or allergens, which makes it safe for the healthcare sector as harmful bugs or infections won't be passed through to other patients.
