Expona Control, Polyflor‘s innovative new flooring concept, has been installed at the prestigious Slattery Patisserie and Chocolatier. Developed for use in busy commercial areas, Expona Control combines the design benefits of a Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), with the sustainable slip resistance of an HSE-compliant safety floor.
Expona Control offers the same slip resistance specification as Polyflor’s market-leading Polysafe ranges. The slip resistance is sustainable for the guaranteed life of the product due to its achievement of 36+ in the pendulum wet test, and 20 microns of surface roughness.
The enhanced wear layer creates a rougher, harder friction surface to ‘bite’ into the sole of footwear, resulting in the necessary durability and underfoot safety required of the flooring.
Furthermore, once Expona Control is installed and maintained correctly, the slip resistance commonly improves over time. A clean floor is a safer floor, and the incorporation of Polyflor’s PUR technology provides an easier regime for maintenance staff and a reduced need for energy, power, water and chemical consumption.
Polyflor claims that Expona Control is the first flooring product to marry the design benefits of traditional LVT with safety flooring.
The range boasts 14 designs – combining neutral stones and popular woodgrains – and is suitable for any purpose or design-led installation where safety is paramount. Contrary to traditional safety flooring, Expona Control is complemented with a range of inlay strips, which allows for countless design possibilities.
Tiles and planks from the wood and stone collections can also be installed side-by-side to delineate rooms and create zonal areas.
