ABC&D ARTICLE: Polyflor launches Verona Pure Colours collection

  • 3 Jan 2019

Polyflor, UK manufacturer of commercial and residential vinyl flooring, has announced the launch of the Polysafe Verona Pure Colours collection. Building on the success of the original Polysafe Verona colour palette, the Pure Colours collection features a new and contemporary decoration in a selection of 18 tonal hues, which are suitable for installation within a range of commercial and residential environments to ensure the underfoot safety of occupants. The December edition of ABC&D discovers more…

Developed with the requirements of those living with dementia in mind, the Polysafe Verona Pure Colours collection features a specially engineered emboss and unique matt finish, using complementary coloured quartz in the vinyl to harmonise with the base shade and generate enhanced sustainable slip resistance of 45+ (slider 96).

The result is an aesthetically appealing safety floor that looks like a smooth vinyl with virtually invisible slip resistance once laid on the floor.

Polyflor worked with the Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) at the University of Stirling to assess the suitability of the Pure Colours collection for specification in dementia-friendly environments.

The DSDC is an international centre of knowledge and expertise dedicated to improving the lives of those living with dementia which offers a product accreditation scheme which rates products on a tier scale.

The Polysafe Verona Pure Colours collection performed exceptionally well with 14 colours achieving the highest 1a rating and four colours achieving 1b. Further information on the scheme is available on the Polyflor and DSDC websites.

Tom Rollo, marketing manager at Polyflor, said: “The Pure Colours collection adds a contemporary new design to the well-established Polysafe Verona range.

“From the outset the goal was to develop a product that responded to the market demands for a plain and tonal decoration and also for the collection to be well suited to specification within dementia- friendly design schemes.

“We are very pleased with the result and believe the new collection will be an important addition to the Polysafe family of products.”

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, while 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 lifecycle maintenance costs of up to 60% are achievable 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.
