Polyflor’s heavy-duty safety flooring with enhanced slip resistance from the Polysafe Apex range was recently installed in the busy kitchen at the Radisson Blu Hotel Athlone in Co. Westmeath, Republic of Ireland.

MJ Flooring Contractors fitted Polysafe Apex vinyl safety flooring in the Chromite shade for the 450m2 kitchen area, in four sections to minimise disruption.

Polysafe Apex is a high durability safety floor, providing sustainable wet slip resistance and underfoot protection.

Dean Diplock, head Chef at Radisson Blu Hotel Athlone explained that the new floor has helped us create a safer working environment for staff which is simple to maintain.

With a 2.5mm gauge and available in six functional shades in a solid base colour, the Polysafe Apex range features a high concentration of traditional safety aggregates within the vinyl and a specially engineered emboss to ensure high traction and sustainable wet slip resistance.

Ape achieves an insitu result of 45+ on the Pendulum Wet Test (45 rubber/slider 96) thereby meeting the category of low slip potential in accordance with HSE Guidelines and a slip risk factor of 1 person in a million slipping on the floor. Polysafe Apex also carries an ex-factory R12 rating and conforms with EN 13845, the particle based safety flooring standard.

Apex is available in a flexible sheet format and can be welded at the seams with a colour co-ordinated weld rod to create an impermeable watertight finish, preventing cracked grout lines and dirt ingress.

Polysafe Apex contains recycled material and is 100% recyclable via the Recofloor vinyl take back scheme. It achieves and individually certified BRE Global A+ rating in major use areas to help maximie a BREEAM score.
