The Verona range has been developed with slip resistance particles that are virtually invisible.

This ensures that it provides the performance of a safety floor whilst resembling high clarity vinyl flooring.

The range meets the UK Slip Group Guidelines for slip resistance, whilst also adhering to the European Standard for safety flooring and meeting HSE.
