Polysafe Apex is a safety flooring incorporating enhanced levels of coloured quartz, aluminium oxide silicon carbide particles and natural recycled aggregates in the vinyl to provide sustainable wet slip resistance for the guaranteed life of the product.

The product is designed for industrial food processing and production areas, commercial kitchens and fast food environments where there is a risk of high viscosity contaminants such as olive oil, margarine and cooking stock spilling onto the floor. The floor covering conforms to a wide range of international standards including the European Norm for Safety Flooring EN 13845 and is fully compliant with Health and Safety Executive and UK Slip Resistance Group Guidelines, achieving a low slip potential classification. A result of 45+ is achieved on the RRL Pendulum Wet Test using Four-S/Slider 96 rubber. The product achieves a typical surface roughness result of 70 microns + to lower the slip potential in areas with risks of high viscosity contaminant spillages.

Apex meets the 50 000 cycles abrasion test to EN 13845, meaning the product provides sustainable slip resistance. The product is resistant to dilute acids and alkalis and is classified as anti-static in accordance with EN 1815.

It achieves a BRE Global Environmental Generic A+ Rating in major use areas such as education and healthcare. The product is also 100% recyclable and contains recycled material. The product is R12 rated.
