What Are The Best Commercial Flooring Solutions For High Traffic Areas?

If you’re responsible for choosing flooring for a high traffic area, you’ll likely be looking for an option that’s safe, cost-effective, and hard-wearing. We are commercial flooring specialists who supply and install various types of carpet, vinyl and linoleum flooring that are the perfect hard-wearing solution for all types of application. 

Below, we share three of the most popular commercial flooring solutions and explain some of their benefits, along with where and how they can be used in your organisation.

Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT)

A hard-wearing commercial flooring choice that’s also aesthetically pleasing, luxury vinyl tiles are manufactured from tough vinyl, coated with a digital graphic film and topped with a resilient outer layer that protects against wear and tear. LVTs are available in a wide range of different styles and can mimic real wood or stone flooring, allowing you to create almost any look.

While they may not be an appropriate choice for use in commercial kitchens or high-impact industrial environments, luxury vinyl tiles can be used almost anywhere else. They offer a surface life of up to 25 years and are able to withstand heavy footfall. LVTs can also be easily cleaned or disinfected using many different products, making them the perfect choice for use in hospitals or childcare facilities. Read more about luxury vinyl tiles .

Non-Slip Vinyl

One of the safest and most durable commercial flooring options, non-slip vinyl, offer the same benefits as LVTs in terms of strength and longevity but also boast a naturally water-resistant, non-slip surface. This makes them an ideal choice for use in areas that frequently get wet, such as pool sides, changing areas, showers, wet rooms, kitchens, and outdoor play areas.

Non-slip vinyl are easier to install and maintain than traditional ceramic tiles and are also much harder to damage; there’s no need to worry about dropping hard or sharp objects on a non-slip vinyl floor.

Carpet Tiles

Carpet tiles have remained one of the most popular types of flooring for commercial buildings for several decades and there’s a good reason why. Offering the comfort of carpet while remaining durable and easy to maintain, carpet tiles make a great choice for use in offices, public buildings or anywhere else you want to create a cosy, warm space that can easily be cleaned.

Carpet tiles are quick to install as they are simply slotted together, making them a perfect option for irregularly shaped spaces. They are also cost-effective because if one tile becomes damaged, it can be swapped for a spare rather than having to replace the entire floor.

Perfect for commercial applications, many carpet tiles are treated with an antimicrobial agent that makes them easier to clean and some can even be bleached. They are also now available in industrial-strength and waterproof options. Learn more about carpet tiles here.
