Don’t underestimate the design potential of durable flooring

The trade-off between design versatility and performance is officially over in the world of durable flooring, thanks to these two Polyflor solutions.

Don’t underestimate the design potential of durable flooring

When it comes to specifying flooring materials for industrial spaces, whether it be within aged care and educational facilities or kitchens, durable flooring goes undisputed as the optimum solution. Their resilience to wear-and-tear make them the most fit-for-purpose flooring choice for high traffic environments, but also their ability to withstand extreme temperatures and corrosive chemicals. 

A common misconception surrounding durable flooring solutions is that high performance comes with a trade-off in regards to design versatility and aesthetic potential, naturally leading designers and specifiers to opt for other, often less hardy solutions such as tiles or epoxy flooring.

Polyflor’s Verona and Palettone flooring solutions quash any myths surrounding durable floors. Both products are contemporary, high quality flooring products that are available in a range of colours made to suit any aesthetic. The solutions look to putting a stop to any doubts that are associated with durable flooring, with Polyflor moving beyond atypical characteristics of the flooring type and creating a product that works in a range of commercial contexts.

Polysafe Verona intersects safety and aesthetic, combining subtle pastel shades mixed with stronger accent hues and safety aggregates which are virtually invisible to the eye. Engineered to provide slip resistance which is sustainable and assured through the products guaranteed life, Polysafe Verona is a safe and salient outcome for a commercial project. The flooring solution is ideal for use in areas where contaminant spillages can occur, making slip resistance an important consideration, highlighting its usefulness within kitchens and aged care spaces. 

Verona contains high quality, cross-linked polyurethane reinforcement, and is UV cured for superior cleaning benefits. The flooring solution is 100 per cent recyclable through the Recofloor scheme and contains recycled materials, outlining Polyflor’s commitment to sustainable practice. Verona PUR is available in 18 tonal hues, that are optimised for specification within dementia friendly design schemes.

It’s all in the name for Polyflor’s Palettone, with the extensive range of colours made possible by the flooring solution opening up a range of potential avenues for designers to chase down. Further destroying the idea that PU floors lack versatility, Palettone is an attractive, high performance and heavy duty flooring solution that is available as both a sheet & tile floor covering that maintains shine without the continual need to polish.

Palettone enables you to bring a special brand of style and elegance to any commercial environment, available in a palette of 50 contemporary colours that range from pale neutrals to intense shade, with each shade containing its own NCS reference number. PUR is UV cured to provide a low-cost polish free maintenance regime for the lifetime of the flooring, as well as being 100 per cent recyclable like its Verona counterpart.

Polyflor’s Verona and Palettone are ready made solutions for a range of commercial projects, that couple the qualities of durable flooring with the intense colour and versatility seen within products of designer quality within residential dwellings. Both Verona and Palettone have effectively quashed any doubts surrounding durable flooring solutions and their inability to be of high aesthetic quality, and cement Polyflor’s commitment to create flooring solutions that continue to improve upon contemporary flooring conventions.
