Almost everyone who visits your facility will need to use the restroom, which makes it one of the most important spaces to consider when designing a new building.
There are several things to consider when deciding on a commercial restroom floor—from the aesthetics and cleanliness to selecting a floor that can cope with heavy foot traffic and harsh chemical detergents.
At Everlast® Epoxy, we are proud of our designs and installation process for bathroom floors that resist daily wear and tear, look fabulous, and are safe and sanitary.
If you would like your public restroom facilities to impress your staff and visitors, read on to discover why Everlast® Epoxy is the best flooring choice for a commercial bathroom.
Seamless and sanitary flooring
All commercial buildings offer restrooms with toilets and basins, and many also offer shower facilities, which makes for a humid and moist environment.
If porous flooring is used in this kind of space, it won’t be long before liquids infiltrate the surface and create the ideal conditions for bacteria to breed. Flooring used in restrooms should be nonporous—as this will protect the substrate from microorganisms and foul odors.
Everlast® Epoxy flooring is a seamless flooring solution that repels liquids and bodily fluids and has an integral EPA-registered antimicrobial component designed to impede the growth of microorganisms, creating a healthier environment for those who use the facilities.
Liability and safety
Organizations have a duty to provide a safe environment for their staff and visitors—and there are hefty financial implications should a business be found liable for an accident or injury in their restrooms.
To reduce the risk of a costly lawsuit brought on by dangerous surfaces in areas such as bathrooms, where the floor is often wet and slippery, choose a restroom floor with nonslip properties.
Splashes from showers, hand basins, and toilets can create an unsafe surface, but with Everlast® Epoxy’s slip-resistant flooring, the risk of accidents from slips and skids can be reduced. Everlast® Epoxy also provides the option to add a nonslip additive in the glaze coat that will further reduce the risk of accidents. This coating will leave a sandpaper-like finish, even in wet conditions.
Easy cleaning and maintenance
Keeping a restroom floor clean and well-maintained can prove challenging, but Everlast® Epoxy floors take the hard work out of the equation.
Our floors have been rigorously tested to ensure they provide excellent chemical resistance to harsh detergents, urine, and degreasers and do not stain, degrade, or experience surface erosion.
Maintenance is a breeze too, as we offer a full cleaning system that can be used on Everlast® Epoxy floors to lift bacteria, chemicals, and body fluids and simply be rinsed away, leaving a sanitized surface.
Consider the aesthetics
Have you ever visited a commercial or public building and been less than impressed after seeing how the bathroom looked?
If the restrooms are not pleasant to use, visitors and potential customers will not leave your building with a great first impression.
Make your restrooms more inviting by starting with a floor that is as good-looking as it is functional. With over 50 colors to choose from, you can select a bathroom floor that complements the restroom’s design and creates an inviting space.
From cool, contemporary hues for a refined, clean look to bright bathroom floors that pose a real talking point, you can add appealing aesthetics to a bathroom space with Everlast® Epoxy.
