Flooring 'transformed' with UV resealing solution

Do you have a problem with tired looking resilient floors? Do you have slip issues on resilient floors but can't find a solution? Do you need a permanent seal that stands up to heavy foot traffic and is ready for use immediately - and do you, because of your opening hours or demanding schedule, worry about the loss of business whilst the floor is out of action?

Retail, catering and hospital environments, in particular, are hugely demanding on floors with many being used heavily 24 hours a day. With floors under constant pressure and wear rates high, businesses struggle to keep them looking good and lasting longer - let alone safe. The heavy footfall that floors in these busy environments endure means business owners often find themselves having to prematurely replace hard flooring - often a costly and disruptive task.

Above all, these environments need floors that reflect their surroundings, floors that are bright, fresh and immaculate - and which are safe for their customers to use.

Traffik UK Ltd, one of the UK's leading floor care specialist companies, has over 20 years experience in the refurbishment of resilient hard flooring, transforming floors with the addition of a longer lasting seal providing a brand new wear layer. Traffik's PU resurfacing solution is particularly suitable for making safe and refurbishing vinyl and linoleum floors and now, with the introduction of the UV PU system, businesses can not only have a new resilient surface safe but be certain that, within a few hours of the work being completed, the floors will be ready for use again.

Traffik is the sole UK provider of German floor care specialist, Dr Schutz's UV cured PU system, which is applied in liquid form and cures immediately providing a permanent seal that acts as an additional wear layer. The time taken to reseal floors and allow them to cure to withstand the pressure of heavy footfall is minimal and in most cases premises can open hours later to continue their business. This means that when business premises are suffering from tired looking flooring, but need to be in operation 24 hours a day, Traffik can provide a unique solution saving time, money and removing the need in most cases for floor replacement.
