Polysafe Verona adds flavour to Sutton Academy's dining hall

As part of a major refurbishment project at The Sutton Academy in St Helens. over 400m2 of Polysafe Verona PUR flooring was installed throughout the dining and seating areas where pupils relax and have fun during break times. Verona flooring in Biscotti 5212 and Dolphin Grey 5203 shades was used to create a neutral backdrop for the dining hall’s vibrant purple and green benches which tie in with the Academy’s branding colours. With virtually invisible carborundum-free safety aggregates and tonal decorative chips, Polysafe Verona has the look of smooth vinyl flooring combined with the performance of a safety floor.

Fitted by education sector refurbishment specialists Constellations of Nottingham, these two Verona colours were used as part of a floor design with borders cut in on-site to create separate walkway and seating areas. Jon Lord from Constellations commented, “Combined with the bright furniture, the flooring presents a stylish backdrop which certainly adds more of a wow factor to the space.  Importantly for us, Verona provided a trouble-free installation.”

Ian Morris, Director of Network & Information Services at The Sutton Academy comments: “This refurbishment has totally reinvented the dining hall and the use of Verona ensures a much needed improvement. The product is a highly decorative sheet vinyl yet provides the required underfoot safety to our pupils, whilst being able to cleaned without problem.”

Featuring Polyflor’s renowned PUR cross-linked and UV cured polyurethane reinforcement, Polysafe Verona flooring can be easily maintained with a simple cleaning regime.
