Why The Color Of Your Epoxy Floor Is Important
Clients often ask, “What color choices do I have?” when discussing our Everlast® Epoxy flooring range.
The simple answer to that question is that our flooring comes in a wide and varied array of color choices (fifty-four to be exact) so that our customers can be assured of great options.
Colors play a vital part in how we view the world, so the color of your floor is an important decision and one you may not have previously thought to consider carefully when you initially chose to install an epoxy flooring system.
Yellow is the color of safety
Our “Safety Yellow” color has been designed for areas in which staff, customers, or visitors to your premises need to take extra care. It’s often used in warehouse loading bays, or to highlight an area where a forklift truck may be in operation, warning people to keep an eye out for potential hazards.
Yellow is a color that draws attention and can easily be seen from a distance, which is why it has long been universally used as the backdrop for warning signs or chemical hazards.
Not only does our “Safety Yellow” epoxy flooring help to warn people of danger, it also has a slightly textured and nonslip surface that provides grip for an even safer environment—the color of the floor isn’t the only safety factor when you use our epoxy flooring.
Blue is the hue that builds trust
Color psychology plays an important part in a business branding. For example, blue is a color that is often thought of as a sign of reliability and stability.
Our range of durable epoxy flooring is available in nine shades of blue, all of which are ideal for use in financial institutions or waiting areas of lawyers’ offices, all of which are environments in which trust is an important image for the company to portray.
Reliability is also a feature of all Everlast® Epoxy flooring, regardless of which color you choose. You can trust our epoxy flooring systems to provide a long-lasting flooring solution, even in areas that are subjected to heavy foot traffic or are exposed to the elements.
Clean, clinical white flooring for medical facilities
A visit to a hospital or a doctor’s office can be a daunting experience, and a patient’s primary concern is often one of cleanliness. It’s important for medical facilities to present a hygienic and sanitary environment for patients, which starts from the flooring upward.
The choice of a white or light-colored flooring color, such as our “Sagebrush” or “Antique White” hues, will instill confidence in your patients and communicate that your medical facility is a clean and hygienic place in which to receive treatment.
Cleanliness is not all about the color choice either, as all our epoxy flooring options offer antimicrobial properties, regardless of color, that penetrate the layers of the flooring to provide lasting protection from bacteria, fungi, and mildew and that repel odor.
Choose red for your restaurant to stimulate appetite
Did you know that the color red is thought to increase appetite? Think of the Coca-Cola, KFC, or Kelloggs logos, all of which are or contain a bright and vibrant red.
If you are a restaurant manager who is looking to attract hungry diners, then it’s time to consider a shade of red in your dining area. Everlast® Epoxy flooring offers a fun “Kandy Kane” red that would work well in a retro ‘50s-style diner, or, for a more classic feel, opt for “Old Town” to provide a touch of elegance to your restaurant.
Whichever color you choose, our epoxy flooring makes cleaning up after a busy shift easy: just use detergent, water, and a squeegee. Grime and dirt can be easily removed because the flooring is nonporous and cannot harbor germs or debris, unlike tiled or carpeted alternatives.
Opt for a colorful kindergarten
Children learn best when they are inspired, and color plays a crucial role in stimulating their imagination.
We’ve installed hard-wearing epoxy flooring in daycare centers in a plethora of colors and designs, and can mix and match colors to create a space in which children love to play.
There are no rules when it comes to a colorful kindergarten, as reds, blues, greens, and yellows can all work in harmony. Our expert installation team can also incorporate designs and logos into the surface of the flooring to help little ones discover more about colors and shapes through active play.
