Polyflor, the leading UK manufacturer of commercial and residential vinyl flooring, is delighted to announce the launch of Polysafe Verona PUR; the latest exciting advancement in safety flooring design from the world renowned Polysafe range.
Polysafe Verona PUR confidently lays a major foundation for the future of the decorative safety flooring market. Offering forward thinking design with safety as standard, Verona offers a clean and fresh look that is completely carborundum-free, containing no visible dark aggregate, unlike traditional safety flooring. Featuring a specially engineered emboss and unique matt finish, Polysafe Verona PUR uses complementary coloured quartz in the vinyl to harmonise with the base shade and generate slip resistance. The result is an aesthetic safety floor that looks like a smooth vinyl with virtually ‘invisible’ slip resistance once laid on the floor. As with all Polysafe ranges, Verona achieves the same tried and tested credentials of sustainable wet slip resistance, achieving 36+ on the Pendulum wet test with full conformance to HSE Guidelines and the EN 13845 50,000 cycles abrasion test. Tom Rollo, Marketing Manager at Polyflor comments “Polysafe Verona marks a significant development for Polyflor’s UK market leading safety flooring production line. Significant investment in advanced production processes has allowed the development of a product that combines forward thinking decorative appeal with the tried and trusted performance of the Polysafe Brand.”
Designed from the Natural Colour System’s (NCS) hierarchy of scientifically generated colours, this significant development presents an affordable collection of 18 new shades, aligned to today’s colour trends. Combining a variety of subtle pastel tones with bolder accent hues, Polysafe Verona features an attractive tonal and complementary chip decoration to give a distinctive look that is ideal for use in showcase environments within sectors such as healthcare, education, leisure, office and social housing. Designed for areas where underfoot safety is paramount due to risks of wet spillages or contamination, Polysafe Verona is suitable for both traditional safety flooring locations as well as the more design-led, high visability areas within commercial and residential settings.
For added reassurance of low maintenance in hygiene critical areas, Polysafe Verona features the renowned Polysafe polyurethane reinforcement (PUR) cleaning enhancement. Cross-linked and UV cured, Polysafe PUR is a super strength reinforcement designed to facilitate even easier cleaning, whilst providing optimum appearance and colour retention as well as improved soil release. Using a micro mop maintenance regime, chemical usage, energy intensive cleaning and water consumption are significantly reduced and life cycle maintenance costs of up to 60% are achievable over a 15 year period when compared to untreated safety flooring.
Polysafe Verona PUR contains recycled content through the use of natural recycled aggregates and is 100% recyclable via the Recofloor scheme. Polysafe Verona PUR guarantees 36+ sustainable wet slip resistance for the life of the product and is readily available from Polyflor’s national network of flooring distributor partners.
