The perfect office flooring

In today's rapidly evolving office environment, the importance of selecting the right flooring cannot be overstated. Not only does it need to be durable and easy to maintain, but it also plays a crucial role in ensuring safety, enhancing productivity, and reinforcing brand identity.

Let's delve into how the right flooring can transform your office space with a focus on safety, zoning for functionality, and branding.

Safety first: Anti-slip flooring

Safety in the workplace is paramount. Slips, trips, and falls are among the leading causes of non-fatal accidents in offices, often resulting in significant costs due to injuries and lost productivity. In fact, the UK Health and Safety Executive states that 90% of slips resulting in a major injury (i.e. a broken arm or requiring hospitalisation) occur when a floor is wet or contaminated with food. Furthermore 75% of trips occur due to obstructions or uneven surfaces.

To combat this, we offer a range of anti-slip flooring options that ensure a safer working environment for everyone. Our solutions, including luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) and vinyl, are designed to provide grip even in areas prone to moisture, reducing the risk of slips and falls.

Creating Functional Zones with Flooring

The concept of zoning within an open-plan office is gaining traction as businesses look to perfect their spaces for various activities and hybrid working while fostering collaboration and productivity. Flooring plays a crucial role in defining these zones without the need for physical barriers, which can disrupt the flow of the space.

Collaboration Zones:

For areas designed to encourage teamwork and creativity, we recommend LVT flooring, which offers both durability and a modern aesthetic. The versatility of LVT allows for the creation of distinct patterns or colour-coded areas that subtly signal the intended use of each zone.

Quiet Zones:

In contrast, areas chosen for focused work can benefit from a carpeted solution, known for its sound-absorbing qualities. This helps to minimise noise levels and create a conducive environment for concentration.

Breakout Zones:

For informal gathering spaces, a combination of both carpeting and LVT can delineate these areas from the rest of the office, providing a comfortable and inviting space for employees to relax and recharge.

Client Facing Zones:

Whether a reception area, corridor or meeting room these spaces can benefit from either LVT for a durable stylish look or a luxurious hard wearing carpet for that high end finish, or a combination of the two.

Branding Through Flooring

Your office space is an extension of your brand, and the flooring you choose can significantly contribute to reinforcing your brand identity.
