A safety vinyl installed in a commercial kitchen should differ from that which would be suitable for general use in classroom wet areas and toilets. Heavy duty safety vinyl such as Altro Stronghold 30 and Altro Atlas 40 are 3mm and 4mm products respectively and are designed specifically for use in both wet and greasy conditions where frequent spillage is likely whilst ensuring the highest ratings for slip-resistance. For use in wet rooms however, we would recommend products such as Polysafe Hydro and Altro Marine as these feature safety aggregates and a raised pimple emboss for added grip creating a safe interior in commercial or residential areas. Highly suited to disabled adaptations. The preparation work is equally as important, creating the right gradient for the water to disperse correctly and ensuring the appropriate adhesives and sealants are used is all part of the advice and service available at Youngs Flooring.
