Step Safety Vinyl

Step Safety Vinyl

Our ‘Step’ safety vinyl flooring collection is a vital choice for spaces in any industry that requires durable and slip-resistant flooring, from education to healthcare and more. Step safety vinyl flooring is engineered to reduce the risk of slips and falls in both high-traffic and wet environments where the risk is higher.

The Step collection meets all European and HSE safety norms, delivering safety with minimal compromise on cleaning and maintenance, thanks to the PUR Pearl finish. All Step safety vinyl flooring delivers guaranteed slip-resistant performance throughout the lifetime of the product.
