Choosing the right floor for your business

Picking out flooring for your company is about much more than aesthetics. Of course, it should look good and fit in with the style of the walls and the fixtures, but functionality is an important consideration.

Vinyl and rubber

Non-slip vinyl is an essential choice for healthcare facilities, such as hospitals and clinics, where vulnerable people can seriously harm themselves on a slippery floor.

Other high-risk working environments, like swimming baths, gyms and commercial kitchens, will also opt for non-slip vinyl or even rubber, because a slide-resistant grain surface allows customers and employees to move about safely in almost any kind of practical footwear. Polyflor is one example of a popular manufacturer of this variety of flooring.

Carpets

For offices, a solid wood, laminate or carpet floor is often chosen. As well as offering a strong aesthetic appeal, any of these varieties can be fitted with ease while closely matching the existing décor. Some reputable manufacturers, like Burmatex, provide carpet tiles that offer a number of advantages, such as the fact that they can be quickly replaced when worn and fitted more easily than a standard, one-piece carpet.

Whatever floor you decide to have fitted, don’t just think of the style of your building’s interior; consider the work that takes place there and choose the option that will help your staff in carrying out their day-to-day tasks.
