Corona safety for Thomas More students

Under foot safety in the food technology room and design materials workshop at Thomas More Catholic School in Purley, Surrey, has been enhanced by the installation of Polysafe Corona, the low maintenance sheet vinyl safety flooring from commercial flooring specialist Polyflor Ltd.

“Staff and pupil safety is important throughout the school, but especially in these areas,” said Mr Stan Branch, assistant head teacher at Thomas More. “Polysafe Corona is not only slip resistant - a vital benefit - but is also easy to clean and attractive to look at.”

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, now including polyurethane for reduced dirt pick up, even easier maintenance and cleaning cost savings of up to 60%. Polysafe Corona has been independently tested and results demonstrate that it inhibits the growth of MRSA. An effective cleaning regime is, however, the most important defence against infection.

The range also features a new advanced formulation, providing enhanced flexibility for even easier fitting and welding, plus sustainable slip resistance for the guaranteed life of the product, achieving 36 on the RRL Pendulum wet test (Four-S rubber). This, combined with a surface roughness of Rtm 20µm, ensures that Corona complies with Health and Safety Executive guidance and 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.
