Corona safety for Living Needs customers

Visitors and staff at the new Barnstaple showrooms of Living Needs Solutions - specialists in adaptations for the elderly and disabled - can be assured of under foot safety following the installation of Polysafe Corona low maintenance sheet vinyl safety flooring from commercial flooring specialist Polyflor Ltd.

Slip resistant Polysafe Corona, in a pleasing combination of Geyser Blue and Barley colourways, has been fitted throughout the showrooms and features the Living Needs Solutions logo inset into the floor. Created by the Polyflor Expressions Design Service, the company logo inset is just one of many striking designs developed through precision computerised water jet cutting techniques, which enable a whole host of attractive landscapes to be created in various commercial sectors.

Combining the latest advanced performance and maintenance technology with a superbly fresh colour palette, Polysafe Corona incorporates Supratec+; the second generation of Polyflor’s unique soil releasing polymer system, including polyurethane for reduced dirt pick up, even easier maintenance and cleaning cost savings of up to 60% over traditional safety flooring.

The range also features a new advanced formulation, providing enhanced flexibility for even easier fitting and welding. As well as meeting the performance requirements of EN13845 and being BBA Agrément certified as G5ws, Corona provides sustainable slip resistance throughout its guaranteed life, achieving 36 on the RRL Pendulum wet test (Four S/Slider 96 rubber). This, combined with a surface roughness of Rz 20µm, ensures that Corona complies with Health and Safety Executive guidance, also allowing the flooring to be rated as ESf (enhanced slip, footwear) in line with EN 13845, the European Norm for Safety Flooring.

The practical appeal of the range is matched by its aesthetic appearance - a superb choice of 12 fresh, vivid colours, carefully chosen to complement shades available in Polyflor’s heavy duty smooth range of commercial floor coverings, thus enabling architects and designers to co-ordinate and contrast colours in different use areas.

Polysafe Corona has been independently tested and results demonstrate that the product inhibits the growth of MRSA. An effective cleaning regime is, however, the most important defence against infection.

Fully tested to fire safety standard EN13501-1, Polysafe Corona is certified as Class Bfl-S1, achieving the criteria EN ISO 9239-1 8kw/m² and the mandatory requirement of EN ISO 11925-2 pass.
