Strata style and safety in blue for Peak practice

A vibrant blue multi-flake colourway from the Polysafe Strata range - the latest innovation in sheet vinyl safety floors from commercial flooring specialist Polyflor Ltd - is helping keep pets and people safe at the Peak Veterinary Practice at Matlock, Derbyshire.

“We wanted a safe, attractive and easy to maintain flooring - and Polysafe Strata fully met our requirements,” says veterinary surgeon Andrew Dorman.

Polysafe Strata, in Calcite Blue, was installed in the reception and waiting areas as well as in the treatment room at the practice by Sheffield-based flooring contractor John Charles Carpets.

Available in nine exciting shades, each featuring a different multi-coloured flake decoration, Polysafe Strata’s base colours are already popular choices in Polyflor’s established Polysafe Standard range.

In all other respects, Polysafe Strata mirrors the features and benefits of Polysafe Standard in relation to availability, price, cleanability and true slip resistant performance.

Incorporating quartz crystals, aluminium oxide and silicon carbide particles throughout the full product thickness for improved traction and safety underfoot, Polysafe Strata, in common with all Polyflor sheet vinyls, can be welded at the seams and to coved skirtings to create continuous, impervious surfaces.

And, as with all Polysafe ranges, the product has been independently tested and results demonstrate that it inhibits the growth of MRSA. An effective cleaning regime is, however, the most important defence against infection.

As well as meeting the performance requirements of EN13845, the range conforms to HSE guidelines, achieving a sustainable slip resistance value of ≥36 on the RRL Pendulum wet test (using Four S rubber slider) and a surface roughness of Rtm ≥ 20µm. Fully tested to fire safety standard EN 13501-1, Polysafe Strata is certified as Class Bfl-S1, achieving the criteria EN ISO 9239-1 ≥ 8kw/m2 and the mandatory requirement of EN ISO 11925-2 pass.
