Vinyl safety flooring brings smiles all round to dental practice

Polyflor vinyl safety flooring from the high performance Polysafe Verona PUR range gave a fresh new look to Midland Orthodontics dental practice in Sutton Coldfield recently.

Polysafe Verona was specified for the project as the specialist orthodontic practice required a safe, easy to clean and attractive floorcovering that would provide underfoot slip resistance for patients and employees, creating a professional look that complemented the existing décor.  The pale blue Skyline 5205 shade was chosen from the subtle and appealing colour palette available in the Verona range to create the desired crisp, clean look.

Specified and installed throughout treatment, circulation and storage areas by Lynex Flooring of West Bromwich, the finished flooring was coved and welded to provide a secure and hygienic finish. In an area which needs to be continually clean, Polysafe Verona has a cross linked and UV cured polyurethane PUR reinforcement to facilitate a simple maintenance regime.

Lucy Upton, Practice Manager at Midland Orthodontics, commented, “It is crucial that the treatment rooms and clinical areas convey a positive and professional image to our customers, providing a welcoming feel that puts them at ease. Polysafe Verona is the perfect choice for our practice as it combines the look of a highly attractive decorative floor with safety properties for added reassurance, particularly required when laid near to the sinks in the treatment areas”

Vince Lynex, owner of flooring contractors Lynex Flooring added, “We were impressed with Polysafe Verona PUR range from the moment we saw it and quickly specified it for this install.  The product was flexible and easy to fit, cove and weld on-site. The finished result looks outstanding and our client is delighted with the end result. I think the flooring really contributes to a fresh environment that meets all expectations.”

Polysafe Verona safety flooring features carborundum-free, virtually invisible safety particles to provide sustainable wet slip resistance throughout its guaranteed lifetime. The HSE compliant Verona range meets the EN13845 European Standard for safety flooring and the range achieves 36+ on the Pendulum wet test with a surface roughness of 20 microns and above. The range also performs in the 50,000 cycles abrasion test to ensure sustainability of slip resistance.
