The importance of hygiene in the workplace and managing the risk of infection has been vital for healthcare and food industries for many years, but as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to dig its heels in, we are seeing the need for stringent hygiene measures extend to all sectors.
The risk of infection can have a damaging impact on operations and profitability, not at least health. Defective flooring or skirting is a breeding ground for germs and spreading infectious disease, so it is essential that the flooring and walls are seamless and easy to sanitise through regular maintenance.
Vinyl Safety Flooring, which is often mistakenly referred to as non-slip flooring, is widely used to reduce the risk of slips and trips. One of the other stand out properties of sheet vinyl is that it requires heat-welded at the joins and can be fitted behind hygienic wall cladding, which creates a seamless and impervious surface from floor to wall. This perfect duo is a go-to flooring solution for healthcare and many other industries needing to meet stringent health and safety measures.
Hygienic wall cladding creates an impermeable barrier to moisture and bacteria. The smooth, easy to clean surface is an excellent hygienic alternative to ceramic tiles, removing the need for grout which can harbour bacteria
