Whether clients are designing a new facility, or re-designing an existing one, the influence that the flooring finish can have on overall aesthetics, sustainability and performance cannot be dismissed .

Another benefit with the Gerflor MyFloor service is that by using the waterjet cutting technique, Gerflor can create bespoke designs and logos which further enhance the choices for designers and specifiers. It’s a real boon when a facility wants to customise its ‘look.’ Using this highly precise cutting method customers can create their own unique stamp or brand. Whether it’s a logo, signage on the floor or a bespoke laying pattern, anything is possible with striking precision… and it all can be manufactured with incredible detail with Gerflor’s precision water jet cutting technology.

Descriptive markings such as stop signs on the floor, disabled and wheelchair access, designated seating zones, together with walkways and hand sanitising areas are all made easy to recognise using this service.

The breadth of application for marking floors is huge and helps to create a secure and comforting environment, together with providing a unique and appealing space where visitors can enjoy their visit within the facility. Being able to navigate around any facility is hugely important and marking and zoning floors enables this function more easily.

In this current Covid environment, being able to continuously socially distance has delivered outstanding results for the whole country in the fight against the pandemic. Being able to clearly mark floors to encourage social distancing has been beneficial for all. With the use of signs and bold colours clearly marked on a floor has enabled a host of facilities to encourage social distancing on a tremendous scale. It’s where floor marking, and zoning can really make a significant contribution to the nation’s health.

David Collins-Lafferty, Marketing Manager, Gerflor UK commented, “By utilising and accessing our innovative MyFloor digital water jet cutting service, designers and specifiers across the contract markets, whether it’s for new build or refurbishment projects, can transform their designs into a stunning and striking reality.” David Collins-Lafferty further added, “The Gerflor MyFloor service is incredibly easy to use and enables designers to present drafts and designs for clients, together with producing the final printed floor with either its unique markings or clients’ logos.”

When specifying flooring in desirable settings, designers are increasingly seeing the benefits of luxury vinyl tile and sheet products to create the required finish. With authentic patterns, endless colours, designs and textures to choose from, the possibilities for creating an impressive and stunningly  beautiful floor are now endless. The latest technological advances in vinyl production ensures that being creative with flooring has never been easier. Establishments can not only install a flooring solution that is high-quality, durable and on-trend, but one that is in perfect keeping with the overall look, vibe and theme of the venue. Whether a business chooses to zone or design an impactful statement floor, it can be achieved without compromising on its technical performance or integrity. It’s a fact that floor surfaces are a major visual element in most facilities and will have a significant impact on the internal environment for the user. The use of bespoke logos and waterjet cutting on flooring design also creates brand awareness and re-enforces the sales or corporate message.
