Social Environments

Communal areas not only have to provide comforting and stimulating social areas for residents, they also need to be able to withstand the wear and tear of daily life in a busy home. Residents should be able to enjoy their social areas without worrying about the floor.

Our Flotex, Step & Sarlon ranges can help transform living spaces from functional areas to the heart of the facility.
