Best Flooring for Mobility Issues
Need ease of access in and out of your home? Looking for a permanent fixture rather than making do with a temporary ramp? Perhaps one of the most important home improvement options that mobility aid users can consider is the type of flooring to install in your home. In this article, we look at the best flooring for mobility issues.
Surfex’s mobility flooring solutions can not only improve non-restrictive accessibility to your home or office for individuals who make use of mobility aids, but it can also be a great place to start when considering a home upgrade to get the best value out of your budget.
Mobility is perhaps the number one factor to consider for wheelchair, walker and scooter users. Mobility aids place a lot of point pressure on a floor and therefore it needs to be durable and non-slip. This is where epoxy resin coatings excel. Among its many advantages, epoxy flooring is completely seamless, durable and resistant to heavy traffic. Moreover, commercial-grade epoxy resin flooring is customisable with a wide range of options to suit your preferred choice of colour or design with an option of including a non-slip finish.

Mobility Flooring That Works
Tiles and carpets also increase the physical effort required to push mobility aids across the surface. In contrast, because epoxy is seamless, mobility access is significantly improved, especially in wet areas such as showers. Of course, smooth surfaces play an extremely important role when it comes to mobility access.
Furthermore, Surfex’s seamless epoxy resin flooring solutions are easy to clean and maintenance-free. They are completely impervious, stain-resistant and waterproof. It’s a flooring solution that is hardworking, completely customisable and comes in unique stylish finishes.
