Polysafe Arena PUR and Polysafe Modena PUR safety flooring from UK manufacturer Polyflor helped transform Lido Ponty, the National Lido of Wales in Pontypridd, into a modern outdoor pool and adventure play park.

Lido Ponty restoration

  • part of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s £6.3m restoration project
  • main contractors Kier Construction
  • installed by flooring contractors CS Flooring Solutions

Polysafe Arena PUR in the Cement design was installed in The Waterside café and the visitor centre.

Polysafe Modena PUR safety flooring in the Blue Quartz and Andesite shades was used in back of house zones and the centre’s reception area.

Both of these design-led safety flooring ranges incorporate clear aluminium oxide safety particles through the performance layer of the vinyl which are virtually invisible to the naked eye, ensuring an attractive yet safe floor finish for use in commercial or residential areas.

The Polysafe Arena range replicates on-trend stone, textile and abstract designs whilst the Polysafe Modena collection features a sophisticated micro-granite decoration in a selection of neutral and bright shades.

Amy Griffiths, Assistant Site Manager on the Lido Ponty project: “We are delighted with the finished result at Lido Ponty where the flooring perfectly complements and enhances the new look of the lido. Thanks to the Polysafe Arena and Modena ranges we were able to create a safe and sustainable slip resistant environment for visitors without having to compromise on our creative vision for the interior design.”
