New Floor or Replacement Floor


Laying a new or replacement floor?

It is important to make sure you get a floor that will stay safe throughout its life (maybe 25+ years).


Every flooring situation is different. Make sure you understand the wet/dry slip resistance required for the life of your new floor.

Your new floor should have low slip risk in its normal conditions and even when wet/contaminated it should not measure high slip risk.


Did you know?:

Some new floors lose 20% of their grip within weeks.


Top Tip.

Test the old floor before replacing it. Your new floor should be at least as safe as the old one especially in measures of wet slip risk.



Get the right flooring...

Staff and customers will expect floors to be safe and fit for purpose.


Specify the minimum level of slip resistance required for the safe use of the floor. Make sure operational staff are aware how to maintain the required level of slip resistance.

Before purchasing. Test potential new floors with the type of contamination that will be present.

Test a small area of laid floor before wide-spread roll out to ensure that the new floor matches your specification and performs as expected.

Test both the wet and dry slip risk. Test slips risk of normal shoes, trainers or bare feet as appropriate for the use of the floor.

Test again after a period of normal use and cleaning.


Save time and money:

Work with flooring suppliers who will test the finished floor and guarantee lasting slip resistance. A few minutes testing all new floors could save you years of slip headaches.
