Commercial kitchen flooring and restaurant kitchen flooring
Commercial kitchen flooring needs to be slip resistant, easy to clean, hardwearing and resistant to heat. We recommend heavy duty safety vinyl for commercial kitchen flooring in restaurants, hotels, hospitals, stadiums or arenas and schools.
Heavy duty safety vinyl will create an impervious and easy to clean floor in your commercial kitchen. Individual sheets can be welded together meaning the floor is seamless and bacteria has nowhere to collect. Choose a safety floor with a bacteriostatic and fungistatic treatment for a hygienic commercial kitchen floor that inhibits the growth of bacteria between cleaning.
Why is heavy duty safety vinyl the ideal choice for commercial kitchen flooring?
- Safety vinyl has an impervious and non-absorbent surface
- Individual vinyl sheets can be welded together to create a seamless floor with water tight joints
- Safety vinyl is quick and easy to clean reducing long-term maintenance costs
- The installation is extremely quick – it’s often possible to lay a floor in the morning and open the kitchen for service in the evening
- Safety vinyl is extremely durable
- The surface is corrosion resistant and made from non-toxic materials
- 10 year wear layer guarantee on select recommended products
Slip resistant commercial kitchen flooring
For commercial kitchen flooring we recommend safety vinyl because it will provide a safe slip resistant surface even when cooking oil, grease, fat or the occasional potato skin ends up on the floor. Vinyl safety flooring is suitable for all zones in a commercial kitchen including food preparation areas, cold storage, dry storage and pot wash.
Commercial kitchen vinyl flooring versus ceramic tiles
Commercial kitchen vinyl flooring will create a seamless non-porous floor. The grout between ceramic tiles is porous making it more susceptible to harbouring bacteria. With commercial kitchen vinyl flooring there’s no grout involved. Instead, individual sheets of vinyl are heat welded together to create a seamless floor with water tight joints that leave dirt and bacteria with nowhere to hide.
Our commercial vinyl flooring also has an extremely high impact resistance. Impacts that would chip or crack a ceramic tile have next to no effect on heavy duty vinyl floors. Cracked or chipped tiles allow dirt to collect and harbour bacteria. By creating a seamless, watertight environment from the floor to the ceiling, you can help minimise the areas in which bacteria will grow and where moisture can get trapped and cause damage to the subfloor.
