Safety flooring takes centre stage at Wigan Youth Zone

High clarity Polysafe Modena PUR was the safety flooring of choice for the eagerly anticipated Wigan Youth Zone in Lancashire. Over 600m2 of Polysafe Modena’s vivid Citrina, Garnet and Angelite colourways were installed by iFloor (UK) Ltd of Liverpool. They were designed to create zonal areas within the main entrance hall, providing a colourful centrepiece and safe welcome to the local community.

Polysafe Modena PUR was chosen because it offers sustainable wet slip resistance for the guaranteed life of the product and conforms fully with HSE and UK Slip Group Guidelines, achieving 36+ on the Pendulum wet test with a surface roughness of 20 microns and above.

The youth zone’s General Manager John Harker comments, “Wigan Youth Zone caters for hundreds of young people on a daily basis. It was essential that the flooring chosen was able to cope with the high footfall, offered sustainable slip resistance but also added to the vibrancy and energy of the centre. Polysafe Modena ticked all the boxes”.

Featuring a range of 14 high clarity micro-granite designs, Modena presents an attractive yet safe floor finish. The particles embedded within the product are virtually invisible to the naked eye and create a rougher, harder friction surface to ‘bite’ into the sole of footwear, ensuring the necessary long term slip resistance is achieved.
