New range combines aesthetics and safety

Safety flooring doesn’t have to be dull, as Gerflor’s new range demonstrates

In association with

Gerflor, the global vinyl flooring manufacturer, has broken away from the utilitarian designs associated with contract safety flooring in its latest innovation, Taralay Impression Control.

Developed to make a favourable ‘impression’ where both aesthetics and safety are paramount, Taralay Impression Control provides inspirational design, superior slip resistance and outstanding performance for new build and refurbishment projects, as well as most contract and housing installations.

There are two parts to the collection: Safety In Wood offers realistic wood effects while Safety In Design features on-trend designs in contemporary colours.

'Increasingly we are finding that where a safety flooring solution is needed, looks also count,' says John Hardaker, Gerflor’s national sales manager (contract & sports). 'This applies where architects, contractors and end-users must combine the necessary specification criteria with aesthetical requirements in, for example, the education, healthcare, sports & leisure, office, retail, hospitality and housing sectors.'

Crucially, Taralay Impression Control has the technical qualities of a safety flooring: it is slip resistant to ≥36 HSE standards, has a R11 slip resistant rating and has achieved a 20RTMRz micro surface roughness measurement, which indicates a low slip risk in wet conditions.

It is an exceptionally tough and durable 2mm thick, compact flooring with a 0.70mm wear layer. It is easy to maintain thanks to the hygienic UV cured PUR surface treatment that eliminates the need for waxing and polishing.

Taralay Impression Control is 100% recyclable and manufactured to Gerflor’s exacting environmental standards and policies, including life cycle analysis, at its ISO 14001 certified production sites.
