comfort polyurethane resin flooring vebroflex

What is vebroflex and where is it installed?

vebroflex is range of resin comfort floors made up from multiple layers of flexible polyurethane resin installed onto a primed substrate or rubber underlay that have been designed to provide a cushioned effect underfoot and reduce noise transmission caused by heavy footfall.

vebroflex systems are becoming increasingly popular in education, healthcare and other public facilities as well as mixed-used and multi-occupancy commercial buildings.

What are the main benefits of choosing vebroflex systems?

vebroflex systems provide a cushioned, sound deadening effect underfoot which produces an ergonomically warm feel in any public or multi-occupancy space. All systems are highly flexible and offer excellent crack-bridging properties, in addition to being very easy to clean given their smooth and resistant finish.

What vebroflex options are available?

vebroflex is available in a range of build-ups laid with or without proprietary rubber underlay. Fast cure options where time is of the essence and a fast return to service is required are also available.

All systems come in a range of decorative colour options or can be tailormade to custom or corporate colours on request.

Are resin floors expensive?

Resin flooring can sometimes be more expensive in the short term than using other materials, this can be as a result of a potential increased cost of materials as well as the outlay for specialist trained resin contractors to install the product, but its durability alone makes it an extremely cost-effective option, as you won’t need to replace it for many years.

And, when you take into account other savings that you can generate as a result of selecting resin flooring, such as reduced maintenance, cleaning and energy costs, it makes sense that an investment now will continue to pay dividends in the long term too!

Can resin comfort floors be used in industrial facilities?

In a nutshell, yes. Although typically installed in institutional and commercial venues, comfort resin flooring offers the same safety benefits enjoyed by high-build and self-smoothing polyurethane flooring systems such as excellent durability, chemical, UV and slip-resistance.

How are resin comfort floors installed?

Comfort floors should be installed by experienced applicators in the field of resin flooring systems. Any cracks in the substrate should be bandaged or a levelling screed should be used to ensure a smooth, level surface prior to the installation of polyurethane comfort flooring. Comfort resin floors act like a skim and will highlight any imperfections in the substrate when cured if preparation isn’t taken seriously.

The area needs to be sealed prior to installation, with all windows and doors firmly closed, as well as free from any moisture or dust particles. If underfloor heating is incorporated into the substrate, this should be switched on and set to roughly 22°C before installation can begin. Most resin comfort floors are two to three-layer systems and typically a day is recommended between each coat.

How often do resin floor coatings require repair & maintenance?

Resins are seamless in nature and don’t include joints or grout lines, which are susceptible to harbouring dirt, grease, bacteria and stains in general. Dust and dirt can simply be swept, mopped or hoovered away and the floor cleaned according to manufacturer’s guidelines based on the surface profile of the floor.

Resin flooring is also extremely strong and durable, meaning that it has an extended service life compared to other floor coverings. Installed properly, and with the correct maintenance, it can last for years without cracking or peeling, meaning that you won’t have to replace the floor or carry out repairs as frequently than you would if using other materials.

What are the advantages of resin comfort floors over alternative floor coverings?

Major benefits of resin comfort floors include the reduced risk of cracking due to the increased flexibility of the polyurethane resin and a reduction in noise transmission caused by footfall in multi-level spaces.

Resin comfort floors are also extremely hygienic and very easy to clean given their seamless and smooth finish – plus they come in a vast (virtually limitless) range of colours, decorative effects and unique motion patterns.

The durability of resin flooring makes it more cost-effective when compared with other flooring systems such as tiles, sheet vinyl and linoleum, it’s more resilient, prone to wear and tear and therefore generally lasts a lot longer.

What is resin comfort flooring?

Resin comfort flooring is made up of layers of flexible polyurethane resin that is liquid-applied onto a primed concrete substrate or alternatively a rubber mat, rubber crumb or cork underlay.

Resin comfort flooring is also frequently referred to as liquid-vinyl or cushioned resin flooring. All of these terms; ‘comfort’, ‘cushioned’, ‘vinyl’ – make reference to the floors’ somewhat unique properties of providing a cushioning effect underfoot…this quite literally makes these floors more comfortable, warmer and surprisingly soft underfoot for those using them to walk and work on.

What is the life expectancy of resin comfort floors?

With correct care and maintenance, resin comfort floors can last well in excess of 10, 15, 20 years, even longer still with the routine refurbishment of the topcoat. At the end of their lifespan, resin comfort floors can simply be overlaid whereas with sheet vinyl or linoleum this typically needs to be removed and disposed of.

Resin comfort floors have a very cost-effective life-cycle profile in comparison to alternative floor coverings, albeit a higher square metre rate install cost, reduced maintenance and energy costs over time combined with a longer lifespan makes resin comfort floors the economical choice over the footprint of its service life.

Where can resin comfort floors be installed?

Resin comfort floors have become increasingly popular in institutional facilities over the last few years including schools, colleges, healthcare, medical-care and public leisure facilities.

Whilst being tough and durable, resin comfort floors are also easy to clean which makes them a great choice in these sectors. Resin comfort floors provides the ideal solution for all areas including; entrance foyers, service corridors, classrooms, hospital wards, recreation areas and laboratories.

Why would I include a rubber mat in the build-up of resin comfort floors?

Including a rubber mat within the build-up of comfort resin floors simply enhances all of the major benefits offered by this type of flooring.

The inclusion of a soft rubber mat makes the floor even more comfortable to walk and work on and also significantly improves acoustics – particularly between floors – deadening unpleasant noise transfer (think of that horrendous screeching noise when the bell rings and you’ve got 35 kids pushing their chairs under their desks right above you!)
