INSPIRED SOCIAL-DISTANCING FLOORS


also incorporate safety messaging, such as static or dynamic signs, social-distancing markers or lights indicating the directions in which passengers should queue. One Hybrid Flooring concept,


comprising a layer of carpet fi tted on top of the Bolideck 525 system with antimicrobial coating, is also under way in collaboration with YSA Design. In the event of an outbreak, the carpet may be stripped away to reveal the safety markers, also activating the solution’s hygienic and bactericidal properties. “Certain spaces on board a cruise


vessel require plush carpeting to create that luxurious feel, but passenger ships will have to be fl exible when they set sail again,” says Georg Piantino, senior architect at YSA Design. “With the hygiene of Bolidt’s antimicrobial technology, social distancing signage and the elegance of a fi ne carpet, Hybrid Flooring is the perfect example of how vessels can adapt to changing requirements.” He adds that, “It will allow a luxury suite to be transformed into a medical area, for instance, in a short space of time and with minimal disruption”.


There’s one interiors trend no-one could have predicted until last year – socially distanced fl oor markers. After months in which we’ve become familiar with public spaces scarred by the sight of tape strips indicting social distance, we are now seeing carpets and mats designed specifi cally for this purpose. Gone are the quick fi xes that saw temporary marking scuff ed underfoot, curl and break up. Enter instead, the era of industrial quality, anti-slip products designed with durability and longevity in mind – especially in high-traffi c areas where trip hazards could be costly. Angela Merkel probably expressed the need for correct distancing better than any world leader last year when she acknowledged: “We want to be close to each other, especially in times of need ... right now, distance is the only way to express caring.” Since then, from embedded prints to anti-slip laminate surfaces,


ranges of fl oor markings have gone into production. Milliken recently launched its latest collections, including Social Factor carpet tiles that encourage physical distancing in the workplace. The labelling company, Beaverswood, has begun produce a range of fl oor markers which they describe as “industrial quality, anti-slip” products ideal for highlighting pedestrian routes and compliant safe queuing. Far more hi-tech is InnovationLab’s


“smart mat”, a sensor-based distance-control system that helps to ensure safe distancing in shops.
