Expona Flow PUR sheet vinyl flooring from Polyflor was chosen by Broad Oak Primary School in Didsbury, Manchester as a hard wearing flooring option that would smarten up their dining area and give years of performance in this high traffic area.
The eye catching Reclaimed Chevron 9830 design from the Expona Flow PUR range was installed by Manchester based Barratt & Hughes flooring contractors in the school’s canteen area. Launched earlier this year, the Expona Flow collection of heavy commercial sheet vinyl flooring features 50 wood, stone and abstract designs in a 2 metre wide sheet format with a 2mm gauge and a 0.7mm wear layer.
With an inbuilt herringbone pattern, this Reclaimed Chevron design was chosen to complement the old parquet flooring in the school’s assembly hall, is separated from the dining area by a movable partition to provide open plan or separate spaces. This design offers a reclaimed wood effect with subtle depth and unique detailing that replicates the beauty of natural oak planks. For superior cleaning benefits, Expona Flow flooring is cross linked and cured with Polyflor PUR polyurethane reinforcement for simple polish-free maintenance regime.
Simon Peers from Barratt & Hughes commented, “Like Polyflor’s other sheet vinyl products, Expona Flow was easy to install and a quick way to create a statement floor that really adds impact to this room. We often work with schools and those whom I have shown this installation to have been very impressed with these results, I can see these chevron designs being popular choices.”
Polysafe Vogue Ultra PUR, a heavy-duty safety flooring with a multi-chip decoration, was also installed by Barratt & Hughes at Broad Oak Primary School. The Steel Blue 4740 shade was used in a corridor leading to the dining room and outdoor playground to provide sustainable wet slip resistance, crucial in areas where water from outside may brought in by frequent footfall.
The Expona Flow and Polysafe Vogue Ultra ranges also have impressive credentials as a sustainable flooring products as they both achieve a BRE A+ rating for major use areas in the education sector and are 100% recyclable via the Recofoor vinyl take back scheme.
