Catering areas

Catering areas, kitchens, cafeterias, vending areas, behind bars

These areas work hard and need interior surfaces that work hard for them.  In greasy and wet conditions, it’s vital to keep your staff and learners safe underfoot, as well as giving those who spend hours each day on their feet a degree of comfort.

Compatibility with drainage outlets, flooring, walling and ceilings with grout-free jointing are necessary. Resistance to extremes of temperature may also be required.

You can create a pleasant environment for all users with effective use of colour and design.



Varieties of colour and design are needed to create a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere, with effective use of colour to aid wayfinding and signage.

Our products are designed by industry experts in consultation with customers worldwide to offer safety flooring ranges of up to 40 standard colours and wall cladding of up to 26. Bespoke options are available. Use them in combination to satisfy your need for aesthetic impact and variety. You can also digitally print your own designs onto wall cladding to personalise the environment.
