The choice of flooring within the workplace can affect morale and productivity and are often required to adhere to specific Health & Safety regulations including slip resistance and acoustics.
Excellent aesthetics and a broad colour palette combine with cost effective, durable and low maintenance options.
Fit-for-purpose commerical flooring solutions from Polyflor.
Polyflor’s Polysafe Verona PUR safety flooring was installed to create a new training area with sustainable wet slip resistance for dogs and their handlers at the recently refurbished Guide Dogs for the Blind Training School in Woodford Green, Essex.
Around 450m2 of Polysafe Verona PUR sheet vinyl flooring in the vibrant Blue Lagoon 5206 shade was installed in the school’s training and demonstration area to create a safe working area for handlers and dogs when going through their regular training routines. As a registered charity, The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association provides continued support to blind and partially sighted people through the breeding and training of Guide Dogs to aid mobility and freedom for the visually impaired.
The flooring’s high design appeal with built-in safety also led to the range being specified and fitted to front of house corridors, stairways and canteen areas at the facility by contractors Southern Services in Aldershot. The Verona range’s virtually invisible slip resistant particles and complementary tonal chips offer the high clarity look of a smooth vinyl floor with the performance of a safety floor.
“The hard wearing and slip resistant nature of Polysafe Verona makes it ideal for use throughout the Training School as we have regular footfall as well as the paws moving across the floor of course! Our dogs often undertake rigorous routines with their handlers, the floor has coped admirably with this and cleans up very well. We are impressed with the overall look too, it really lifts the environment.”
– Julie Pithers, Assistant Facilities Manager at The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association
