The best commercial flooring options for high traffic areas


If the flooring in your building’s busy spots has worn away faster than you would have liked, it’s time to replace it with something more durable. To help you choose the right product for your needs, our commercial flooring experts give a brief outline of three of the most popular, hard wearing surfaces available. 

Vinyl flooring

Stain resistant, easy to clean, water proof and incredibly tough, vinyl flooring has all the qualities you need to keep all those areas of your premises with heavy footfall looking great. Aside from its easy maintenance and fantastic longevity, commercial vinyl flooring comes in a huge range of styles, colours, designs and patterns, from realistic imitation wood to colourful floor tiles. Another great benefit is that it is one of the most affordable flooring options on the market, so you can get high quality material for less! 


Carpet isn’t always the most obvious choice for areas prone to high volumes of traffic as they aren’t particularly easy to clean. However, there are some businesses where the softness of a carpet is more important than its durability, in hotel and care home entrance lobbies, for instance. Carpet is also more forgiving underfoot and helps improve the thermal efficiency of a building making it a popular choice for offices as well. 

Safety flooring

One of the areas most prone to high volumes of traffic in any building is the entrance and this area is also the place that tends to get most wet as shoes bring in water from the outside. So, to not only ensure your flooring stays looking great to create a fantastic and professional first impression, but to also help keep staff, customers and clients safe, why not install safety flooring? This versatile flooring is available in many attractive styles and colours and helps to improve traction to reduce the risk of slips and trips.
