Slippery vinyl flooring in the Kitchen of this high class restaurant in Barnsley had previously been covered in a sheet vinyl flooring system. After only 18 months the joints in the vinyl had begun to split and the surface of the vinyl was found to be extremely dangerous when wet in terms of slip resistance. Also the upstands were proving to be difficult to clean and very unhygienic.
The slippery vinyl flooring was completely removed together with all up-stands and the surface first cleaned down and repaired to remove existing adhesive. A 6mm two pack high performance anti-slip resin screed was then installed over the entire kitchen floor area including store rooms and steps. New upstands throughout the kitchen were also created in the same seamless resin system. Finally the new floor surface was sealed with a sealer incorporating non-slip particles.
