POLYFLOR Top cooking school chooses Polysafe Ultima

Super tough Polysafe Ultima sheet vinyl safety flooring from commercial flooring specialist Polyflor Ltd has been installed throughout the food preparation and cooking areas at The Cooking School at Dean Clough, a 21-station state-of-the-art cooking school recently opened in Halifax.

Based in the town’s historic Dean Clough Mills, The Cooking School is the brainchild of Anita Cormac, executive director of the national Focus on Food Campaign, which already operates a fleet of mobile teaching classrooms – Cooking Buses – as part of the effort to teach children to cook and raise the profile of cooking and food education in primary and secondary schools.

Opened by celebrity chef James Martin, The Cooking School offers expert tuition to adults of all skill levels. Courses are held throughout the year with individuals tutored by specialists in their field, including some leading guest celebrities. All proceeds from the school go towards funding the Cooking Buses - which also feature sheet vinyl safety floorcoverings from the Polysafe collection.

“During the initial design concept, Polysafe Ultima was the clear flooring choice because of its enhanced slip resistance and proven use within busy kitchen areas” says Anita Cormac. “We have found that not only is the floor easy to clean and durable, but it complements the décor in our flagship, high specification kitchen. The school’s clean design is further highlighted by the use of Polyclad Plus PU, an ultra-hygienic sheet vinyl for walls and ceilings.”

Polysafe Ultima has been specially developed to give sustainable slip resistance in heavy-duty areas which are subjected to intense footfall and frequent risks of oil and grease spillages. Typically the product is installed into commercial kitchens, food preparation and processing areas.

Polysafe Ultima is one of a number of Polysafe ranges that have achieved a BRE Global environmental A+ rating in major use areas such as healthcare and education (certificate
No: ENP336). The product rating is based on an assessment on the whole life environmental impact of the flooring over a building life of 60 years.

The top environmental rating of A+ is also achieved across Polyflor’s portfolio of homogeneous vinyl floorcoverings, meaning that specification of Polyflor flooring can help contribute to a healthy BREEAM score.

In line with HSE Guidelines, the product achieves a sustainable 40 slip resistance (RRL Pendulum wet test – Four-S/Slider 96 rubber) and a surface roughness reading of over Rz ≥70µm, recommended to cope safely with all levels of spillage of olive oil, cooking stock, margarine and similar high viscosity contaminants in kitchens and food processing areas.

Polysafe Ultima has also been independently tested and results demonstrate that it inhibits the growth of MRSA on the surface of the flooring. An effective cleaning regime is, however, the most important defence against infection.

Fully conforming to EN 13845, the European Norm for safety flooring and flexible for ease of installation, coving and welding, Polysafe Ultima offers a choice of six practical and robust colours. As per an independent assessment by the British Board of Agrément, Polysafe Ultima’s product performance is assured for at least 10 years in recommended use areas, using the correct maintenance regime.

Tough, durable, flexible and ideal for hygiene-critical areas, the Polyflor range of Polyclad wall and ceiling claddings offers a choice of 1.25mm or 2mm gauge sheet in a range of subtle marbleised colourways. The product is easy to clean and is designed to be welded to Polyflor floorcoverings to create continuous floor-to-wall-to-ceiling surfaces that provide an excellent barrier to dirt and infection.
