Combining exceptional slip resistance with contemporary aesthetics, Forbo Flooring Systems’ STEP safety vinyl collection has helped to define and enhance the practical teaching space within the new state-of-the-art Physiotherapy Centre at the University of Winchester.
Eloise Veale, Creative Director at Veale Associates, said: “In the practical spaces where students would be using oils, liquids and lotions on a regular basis, specifying a safety flooring was essential in order to prevent any potential slips, trips and falls caused by accidental spillages. The client was keen to avoid a cold clinical environment often associated with these types of spaces and the issue with traditional safety flooring is that it can often be dull and uninspiring. Having used Forbo’s STEP safety flooring before, we knew that the unique and attractive solutions within the range could offer endless design opportunities, thanks to the wide array of contemporary colours and finishes available – and it was for this reason that we enlisted the help of Forbo’s products on this project.
