Commercial Safety Flooring in Cambridge

At A&S Flooring, we understand that having a safe working environment is of paramount importance. In high traffic areas where extra protection is required, safety flooring provides exceptional slip resistance and durability.

What is safety flooring?

Safety flooring is made from vinyl, which is what provides a grippy, non-skid surface. It is designed for commercial areas that receive heavy traffic, and hence, require protection from slips and skids, as well as general wear and tear.

When should you use safety flooring?

Safety flooring is perfect for commercial spaces, such as reception areas, offices, shops, cafés, industrial kitchens, libraries, toilets, and heavy-duty back areas.

Safety flooring is also ideal for public areas where there is wet barefoot traffic, including wet rooms, shower areas, swimming pools, and locker rooms. The vinyl material generally comes with a raised finish to give bare feet greater grip.

Another industry where safety flooring is necessary is healthcare. Places that provide healthcare services, such as hospitals and care homes, need flooring with slip resistance to keep their occupants safe.

What type of safety flooring do you need?

Standard vinyl flooring that is 2mm thick is suitable for most areas. Beyond that, A&S recommends a thicker 2.5mm option for high traffic spaces, and an even thicker 3mm floor for places where there will be grease, like kitchens and workshops.

There are generally several kinds of preparation work, depending on the type of subfloors that you have. Concrete subfloors require a coat of latex to prep and level the surface, whereas wooden subfloors would need a layer of plywood, followed by a coat of latex on top to ensure that the floors are level for the new flooring.
