AKW, a leading UK provider of accessibility solutions, continues to grow its new anti-slip vinyl flooring range due to popular demand. AKW’s expanded and improved range of safety flooring comes in a wide variety of contemporary colours and provides a high level of slip resistance in a bathroom adaptation. The design of this durable safety flooring has been especially developed to address factors that raise the risk of falls in the bathroom, such as slip resistance, visual contrast and texture.
Suitable for wet rooms as well as other bathroom adaptations, the flooring range conforms to both HSE and International standards. AKW Safety Flooring has achieved the highest slip resistance rating for barefoot users in wet and soapy environments. In fact, its PTV (Pendulum Test Value) exceeds wet room requirement standards, providing complete peace of mind for end users. The flooring is also watertight, long-lasting with slip resistance for a minimum of 10 years, and easy to clean.
The eight colours options available in the range have been chosen based on their popularity with customers. Importantly, the safety flooring has been specifically designed so it does not contain any large speckles, as these can be interpreted as pieces of dirt by those with dementia, resulting in the bathroom user attempting to pick them up and increasing the risk of fall.
AKW’s safety flooring range is two metres wide and can be cut to order in incremental lengths of half a metre or ordered in rolls. Alongside this cut to order service, AKW is also offering installers a range of other products for fitting the flooring on screeded, concrete and wooden floors. These include a range of profiles and trims, levelling compound, latex liquid, flooring and contact adhesive and floor colour matching weld rods.
Stuart Reynolds, Head of Product and Marketing at AKW comments: “The new anti-slip flooring is one of the key product ranges in our AKW One offering, which we continually expand to make installers and specifiers’ lives easier. Furthermore, consumers can choose from eight contemporary colours which reflect current trends and are sure to complement a range of style preferences.”
