Smooth Vinyl Flooring – Head Office Dining Room Bradford

The dark grey vinyl flooring in the dining room of this large office complex in Bradford West Yorkshire was found to be quite slippery when wet.

As the flooring was quite new replacement was out of the question due to costs and disruption. The client wanted a simple effective non slip solution to improve the slip resistance of the surface.

The slippery vinyl flooring surface was first rotary cleaned and degreased using a rotary floor scrubber and 3M flooring pad. A stripping agent was then applied to remove any further polish or sealer and also to key the surface. Finally two coats of Surefoot anti-slip vinyl resin were applied by rollers to the surface incorporating a hard wearing micro anti-slip particle. A mat finish was chosen so that no alteration was seen on the surface. The work was undertaken during the evening and the dining room was back in service the following morning.
