Safety Flooring For The Science Lab

We take immense pride in our long-standing relationships with our clients. A key testament to this is our partnership with Rugby School, which dates back over a decade. We have worked together on over 200 different projects, ranging from minor repairs to major flooring replacements as part of large refurbishments.

Our latest project for Rugby School involved a new safety flooring for their science lab. The safety flooring is crucial in maintaining a safe environment for the students as they work with liquid chemicals and delicate glass equipment.

A spill or breakage can lead to potential accidents, hence, the importance of installing top-notch safety flooring that is not only slip-resistant but also easy to clean, maintain, and built to last for many years.

The Brief & Challenge

The challenge in this project was two-fold. Firstly, we had to ensure the installation process was swift and seamless. Secondly, the safety flooring needed to be highly resistant to a range of substances - from water to corrosive chemicals - while remaining easy to maintain.

Our Approach

We planned the installation around the school's timetable, carrying out the work during a half-term break. We provide flooring to many schools and are used to planning around term times.

As always, we paid great attention to detail in our choice of materials. We used a premium safety flooring that was not only robust and durable but also featured high slip-resistance properties even when exposed to substances such as water and various chemicals. This ensured the safety of students and staff alike, even in the event of spills or accidents.

The flooring chosen was also known for its ease of maintenance. It could be cleaned effectively without specialised equipment or harsh chemicals, reducing the long-term maintenance efforts and costs for Rugby School.

Producing Results

The project was completed smoothly, within the agreed timeframe, and with minimal disruption to the school’s activities. The new safety flooring met the high standards set by Rugby School, providing a safer, more resilient surface for the students to carry out their scientific experiments.
