Contract Vinyl

Contract sheet vinyl is broadly available in 2 types of construction, Homogeneous (constituting of the same material / pattern throughout the thickness of the vinyl), and Heterogeneous (composed of layers, and finished with a PVC wear-layer applied over a decorative design).
Whichever format is used, Contract Vinyl is extremely hardwearing, and requires full-bed adhesion to a sub-floor. It is fairly difficult to fit, and therefore only recommended for the brave DIY-er. It is used almost exclusively in heavy traffic contract situations such as schools and hospitals. Any joins required in an installation can be heat-welded, and the floor is easily patch-repaired, again by heat-welding.
Probably the most popular type of contract vinyl is safety flooring. Suitable for very high traffic areas where optimum slip-resistance is required, safety flooring is generally of a speckled appearance with carborumdum chips set into it, giving it s twinkly appearance. Popular brands would be Altro Walkway, Polysafe Standard and Tarkett Safetred Spectrum (which benefits from Polyurethane Reinforcement, or "PUR ")

Unnatural Flooring

unnatural_flooring

For customers who want the look of Sisal flooring, but need it to be fitted in an area or environment where Sisal itself would be inappropriate, the Unnatural Flooring company have just the thing.

Made from woven vinyl, Unnatural Flooring is durable, waterproof, easy to clean and slip resistant. It is suitable for bathrooms, kitchens, gyms, playrooms and conservatories, or anywhere with high traffic areas or where there is risk of damp, water spills or surface water and is really the only true alternative to sisal for wet areas inside or out.

Because it can be easily vacuumed, it can reduce allergies caused by dust mites, and can be washed with a mop and warm water. There is no other product that is this functional and yet gives the designer a sisal styled flooring suitable for most contract and domestic settings.
