What are the main factors of good safety flooring?

Anyone who’s ever slid on the bathroom floor because of spilled shampoo, or a chef who’s skidded on grease or oil, will understand the need for safety flooring.

At AreA Carpet & Floor we see your job through from concept to completion, whether it’s residential, commercial or industrial.

Our staff of qualified flooring installers and sales experts have over 20 years' experience in this industry. Our customers are always happy and satisfied. As a retailer, it’s gratifying to know we’ve helped them chose the best product for their needs and budget, whether it’s safety or any other flooring.

Our Call Out Service is what makes us stand apart from the others. You need the confidence of buying a product you know will work in your home, with your lighting and furnishings. That can’t possibly happen in someone’s showroom.

Our van is fully stocked with samples and you can even book evening or weekend appointments.

We service Cork, Ireland and surroundings, and be sure to ask about our quotes when you call us.

What is this flooring?

Often, people just call it non-skid flooring, but it is more. While anti-slip qualities are a critical factor, this flooring is engineered to answer the needs of high durability while minimizing the risk of bacteria or toxins.

These floors, of which rubber is one, undergo extensive testing for anti-slip; hygiene and cleaning procedures; surface roughness (for added traction); durability; and environmental impact.

Rubber floors for safety

There are so many design options, with a range of colors, patterns, designs, and sizes, it's possible to have a floor that is both fashionable and safe. The benefits include:

  • Durability. It can withstand high impact (i.e., gyms), cars and can be used in garages.
  • Resistant to mold and bacteria. Since it inhibits germs, it’s a favorite among hospitals.
  • Slip-resistant. This is a good option for senior living communities. It’s waterproof and becomes even more slip-resistant when exposed to liquid
  • Easy to clean: Vacuum and mop occasionally.
  • Resilience. Especially great for gyms because it is much easier on the joints.
  • Environmentally responsible. Rubber is generally considered to have a low environmental impact, but some manufacturers go even further by using recycled rubber from cars.
