FROM ITEC There is no doubt that many school and education facilities can benefit from the added slip-resistance of safety flooring, But, traditionally, its uninspiring appearance has kept its advantages confined to specialist areas. However, with the Itec isafe collection, schools and educational facilities can now bring the benefits of safety flooring along with attractive wood, stone and architectural looks to enhance any interior.

With isafe One and isafe Apex safety flooring ranges; classrooms, corridors, laboratories, toilets, receptions, offices and congregation areas can all benefit from improved slip-resistance. Rated for use in heavy industrial locations, designers and facilities managers can rest assured that isafe One and isafe Apex will continue to perform on a daily basis too, even in demanding high traffic areas. The addition of Hyperguard+ for easier maintenance and resistance to marks and scuffs, ensures that isafe safety flooring will continue to look good.

David Bigland, UK Managing Director of Itec Contract Floors, said: “Isafe opens up new possibilities for applying the benefits of high levels of slip-resistance in areas that also need to show a well-thought-out and inspiring environment.

“With 26 options, a great depth and diversity of styles ensures that designers and building managers can choose a floor that suits its environment and upholds design ethos, while providing users with a safer surface underfoot, reducing the chance of accidents through slips.”

In two and four-metre wide options, isafe safety flooring is quick to install and is therefore ideal for fast refurbishment projects during term closures and weekends, even in large open plan spaces where a fewer number of seams can also

help to reduce potential failure spots. With the Invisiweld fitting method, the appearance of seams can be greatly minimised as well, maintaining the aesthetic integrity of realistic wood and stone effects.

Isafe One and isafe Apex floors are available with fast nationwide delivery from distributors across the country. Itec Contract Floors also provides consultation and technical support for large education projects.


EASY WITH PPC The Preparation Group, specialist in surface preparation, removal and finishing, has added the new STG400 to its STG range.

A lighter version of the STG450, the STG400, is designed for light grinding, refurbishment, cleaning and polishing. The STG400 offers the perfect combination of long-life motor, weight and speed. A real multi-tasker, it will remove laitance, paint, light surface contaminants and coatings from concrete, as well as polishing concrete to a high-shine finish.

The STG400 is easily adapted for multi- functional use and able to undertake different operations in a restricted time limit by interchanging accessories and


plates. Accessories require no fitting, simply place under the drive plate and you're ready to start working.

Highly portable yet robust, it features a simple lever operation and ergonomic handle for safe and comfortable operation. There is an optional suction ring to minimise dust-pollution.

To fit the STG400, there are double- sided TCT (copper) discs for texturing and cleaning concrete and Silicon Carbide (black) sanding discs for light grinding and keying. For floor refurbishment and maintenance, there are Surface Finishing Diamond (SFD) Pads and Storm Diamond Pads available to clean and polish, without the use of environmentally unsound chemicals, waxes or polishes. php?ID=78&sub=99&p=STG400
