When it comes to floors, bath, shower and toilet areas require a specialist approach. Is a trowel floor suitable for this? A trowel floor fits well when used in professional sanitary facilities. The floors are resistant to liquids. This makes the floors safe and hygienic in use. More than other types of floor coverings.
Floors in sanitary facilities, such as bathrooms, shower and toilet rooms, often consist of vinyl or tiles. The disadvantage of these materials is that they are slippery – with possible falls as a result.
The surface of trowel floors is somewhat grainy because of the composition, consisting of fine sand and synthetic resin. Finished with anti-slip coating, a trowel floor significantly reduces the risk of slipping and other accidents. Something that every facility manager of course supports.
Trowel floors are also suitable for creating a sloping screed with camber if desired. This floor guarantees good drainage, which benefits both the safety and the maintenance of the floor.
In comparison with trowel floors, vinyl and tile floors are fragile. For example, vinyl is susceptible to mold when it gets wet. Tile floors, on the other hand, break easily when heavy objects are dropped on the floor. Trowel floors do not have these drawbacks. They are resistant to liquid and thanks to their shock resistance, the floors are not sensitive to dents or damage.
In addition trowel floors are very suitable in combination with underfloor heating. If you opt for underfloor heating, this delivers energy savings of around 30%.
In addition to safer and more durable trowel floors are also more hygienic to use. Due to the seamless system no dirt remains between the edges. The floors can be cleaned very easily and effectively. An important requirement for many companies, including catering establishments, hospitals, healthcare institutions and office buildings. Trowel floors help meet the strict hygiene requirements that apply there.
The multifunctional properties of trowel floors makes this type of floor extremely suitable for use in sanitary facilities. For a multitude of companies. Trowel floors are available in different colours and designs.
