What is safety flooring?
Safety flooring is specially engineered vinyl made to minimise slip risk and provide safe movement in low to high traffic environments. It is often referred to as non-slip flooring, however, this is a misconception. It is designed to minimise the risk of injury in areas that are exposed to the spillage of contaminants.
We supply and install a wide variety of vinyl safety flooring, including Altro, Polyflor, Forbo, Tarkett and Gerflor. With many different colours and effects to choose from, you are now able to create a safe and hygienic space without comprising on style or design.

What are the benefits of safety flooring?
- Made from high-quality vinyl which is incredibly durable and can therefore withstand high amounts of footfall.
- Resists scuffs and stains and is ideal for kitchens, canteens, residential care and industrial settings as well as many others
- Designed with anti-bacterial properties to create clean and hygienic indoor environment.
This is beneficial to industries like hospitals, toilets, nurseries, kitchens and leisure facilities as it is doesn’t harbour germs and very easy to keep clean.
- Versatile design, safety vinyl can also recreate the look of solid wood, concrete or tiles.
What skirting finish can I have?
Cap and Cove
This is where the vinyl flooring is dressed up the wall using a cove former at the edges to create an entire area that is impervious to water and easily cleaned. This is the most hygienic option.
Sit on Skirtings
With this method, the vinyl flooring is fitted flat to the perimeter of the wall, this edge is then made water tight using silicone mastic before a PVC skirting is installed over the top.
Flat Lay with Silicone mastic
This is the simplest way and cheapest way to make your vinyl flooring water tight. The safety vinyl flooring is fitted to your existing skirting and then made water tight by sealing the perimeter using silicone mastic. We offer clear, white or colour matching sealants.
