Polyflor launches Quicklay adhesive-free safety flooring
The Polysafe QuickLay PUR Collection is the latest offering to be launched in South Africa by Polyflor SA, specialists in vinyl flooring and wall-protection solutions.
Polysafe QuickLay is loose-lay safety flooring designed for adhesive-free installation in busy commercial environments that are in need of a quick turnaround and where sustainable slip resistance is a priority.
It can also be used in residential and educational areas and is ideal for circulation and heavy-traffic areas where there are risks of water spillage and other contaminants; such as corridors, dining areas and cafes, classrooms, hospital wards, clinics, laundry and sluice rooms, nursing homes, washrooms, WCs, bar serveries, food preparation areas, kitchens and canteens.
According to Tandy Coleman, CEO of Polyflor SA, Polysafe QuickLay can be used as a temporary or permanent floor covering and achieves the same performance and durability as other Polysafe flooring collections, but with the added benefit of being adhesive-free.
When installing QuickLay, subfloor preparation is considerably reduced as it can be laid directly over a variety of existing floor coverings, including new concrete substrates of up to 97 percent RH. The special Studded Emboss works as a barrier and allows moisture to escape from the subfloor.
The QuickLay system works by simply applying the specially designed QuickLay tape provided around the perimeter of the room, underneath seams and doorways, to secure the flooring in place.
After thermal welding, the floor can be used for traffic immediately. The adhesive-free installation also promotes excellent indoor air quality and low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, which provides a healthy environment that can be used straight away.
The Polysafe QuickLay features the exclusive Polysafe PUR reinforcement for optimum appearance retention and superior cleaning benefits. The collection is available in a tonal colour bank of 12 contemporary shades with a matt surface finish.
It conforms to EN 13845 and 50 000 cycles abrasion test and sustainable wet slip resistance is assured throughout the guaranteed life of the product.
