New Jodrell Bank building fitted with decorative safety flooring

Sector: Education

We’ve started work at the new Star Pavilion at Jodrell Bank. The new space will hold an auditorium and be used for educational workshops, events and lectures. It will also be available for private and corporate hire.

As such, the space requires a number of different floor coverings to meet the high demands of the venue. We’ve chosen a mixture of decorative safety flooring from different manufacturers, barrier matting and carpet tiles.

Polysafe Arena is a new safety vinyl sheet flooring collection from Polyflor. Its design is inspired by modern material surfaces such as concrete, steel, cement and stone. We’ve selected the light concrete shade. It also contains Polysafe PUR reinforcement which provides maintenance benefits that help to retain the appearance and extend the life of the surface. Forbo Surestep in steel offers the same long-lasting safety flooring benefits in a complimenting colour. Both coverings have built-in wet slip resistance properties, are easy to install and ideal for heavy commercial areas with risks of spillage making them a great choice for the Star Pavillion.

Gradus Topguard Matting is a barrier mat suitable for entrances and heavy walkway areas. It is made from rubber wipers interwoven with nylon fibres and linking strips in aluminium, brass or PVC-u, held together with galvanised steel wires. This unique structure of fabric and rubber cleans and dries foot and wheeled traffic, safeguarding against slips and trips inside the building.

Heuga 725 carpet tiles will complete the installation. Used in the auditorium the cut-pile carpet tile is hard-wearing and suited to commercial environments with heavy footfall. Again, the graphite colour is in-keeping with the look and feel of the other floor coverings to tie the whole project together.

The prep work is now well underway on site and we hope to complete the project by early March 2015.
