Polysafe Wood fx PUR vinyl safety flooring in Tropical Pine helps to promote an inspirational and harmonious learning environment

Fresh shades added to new Polysafe Wood fx collection

Six new on-trend flooring styles launched by Polyflor

Posted by Stephanie Broad | October 28, 2015 | Supplier News

Polyflor is pleased to announce the relaunch of our popular Polysafe Wood fx PUR sheet vinyl safety flooring with the addition of brand new high clarity wood effect designs. 

Building on the established success of the classic designs within Polyflor’s Wood fx range, a new series of six on-trend wood styles have been introduced, some featuring a wider plank format for more contemporary look. The fresh additions to Polyflor’s enlarged collection of 12 Wood fx designs are Oiled Oak, Sun Bleached Oak, Roasted Limed Ash, Tropical Pine, Aged Oak and Nero Oak. 

Providing sustainable wet slip resistance in busy, public areas where there is a risk of water spillage, heavy commercial grade Wood fx is suitable for high traffic environments in the education sector such as reception areas, atriums, circulation spaces, classrooms, washrooms and changing rooms. 

The Polysafe Wood fx range features imperceptible, built-in aluminium oxide safety particles integrated through the product’s performance layer, providing virtually invisible sustainable slip resistance. With added underfoot protection to meet duty of care requirements, Wood fx is fully HSE Compliant, achieving 36+ on the Pendulum Wet Test and a low slip potential classification. As with all Polysafe products, Wood fx’s slip resistance is assured for the guaranteed life of the product, meeting the 50,000 cycles abrasion test detailed in EN 13845.

Ease of maintenance in high footfall areas is important and Wood fx’s cleanability is enhanced with Polysafe PUR, a cross-linked and UV cured polyurethane reinforcement to achieve superior cleaning benefits, improved dirt pick up as well as optimum appearance and colour retention levels.

Tom Rollo, Polyflor’s Marketing Manager, comments: “As the UK market leading safety flooring manufacturer we ensure our collections evolve to incorporate the latest flooring trends. Polysafe Wood fx PUR continues to be one of our most popular safety flooring ranges, so by expanding the colour palette we can now offer more contemporary designs options to customers specifying for projects in the education sector.”  

A comprehensive brochure and shadecards are now available for the refreshed Polysafe Wood fx range. Sampling can be ordered free of charge from the Polyflor website or by calling the Polyflor Samples Direct Hotline on 0161 767 2551. 

Manufactured in the UK, Polysafe Wood fx is 100% recyclable through the Recofloor vinyl take back scheme and contains recycled material. The collection has also achieved an individually certified BRE A+ rating (ENP 415) in major use areas such as education, helping to contribute points within a BREEAM Assessment for a building. Polyflor is the first flooring manufacturer to be awarded BES 6001 certification for Responsible Sourcing, notably achieving a ‘Very Good’ rating.
