These products are used extensively in a variety of public buildings including schools, hospitals, universities, nurseries and manufacturing facilities where high traffic volumes are encountered. They are extremely durable and relatively easy to keep clean. In hospitals, where hygiene is the major issue, these products can be welded and sealed to provide a fully impervious floor surface to reduce the possibility of contamination.
Carpets & Carpet Tiles
The most commonly used floorcovering in commercial buildings. These can range from a cost effective budget carpet for general office areas to a bespoke custom made carpet tile for more prestigious installations. Carpet tiles, in particular, are now being utilised extensively in PPP projects, for schools, colleges, universities, etc due to their inherent flexibility and interchangability.
Commercially, the most commonly used product for sports halls, assembly areas and gymnasiums. These floors have to comply with the most stringent standards laid down by the relevant sports councils and regulatory bodies. They are extremely durable and relatively easy to maintain.
Used mainly at the points of entry to buildings, these products are probably the most important floorcovering installation in commercial locations. They significantly reduce the tracking of outside moisture into the building and the possibility of slip accidents. They also remove dirt and soil from foot and wheeled traffic, preventing damage to adjoining floorcoverings and helping to extend the buildings life cycle.
They are available in a wide range of colours and patterns to allow coordination with other floor surfaces.
Subfloor Preparation Products
The quality of a floorcovering finish is only as good as the quality of the finished subfloor. Products such as self-levelling compounds and self smoothing compounds are used widely in surface preparation. These products can include specialist additives and surface damp proof membranes which are designed to suppress high levels of residual moisture within subfloors and are particularly suitable for fast track construction projects.
