Choosing the right commercial resin flooring for your business can be a daunting task. With so many options available, it’s important to consider factors such as durability, safety, and aesthetics.
In this blog, we’ll discuss the different types of FeRFA resin flooring, and how to choose the right one for your business.
What is FeRFA?
FeRFA is the Resin Flooring Association, an organisation that sets standards for resin flooring in the UK.
FeRFA classifies resin flooring into four categories based on the thickness of the flooring system and its intended use. These categories are FeRFA Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, and Type 4.
FeRFA Type 1 resin flooring
FeRFA Type 1 flooring is a thin coating system that is typically used in light-duty areas such as showrooms, retail spaces, and offices.
It is easy to clean and maintain and comes in a variety of colours and textures. However, it is not suitable for areas with a high volume of foot traffic or heavy machinery.
FeRFA Type 2 resin flooring
FeRFA Type 2 resin flooring is a medium-duty system that is suitable for areas with moderate foot traffic such as schools, hospitals, and warehouses.
It provides greater durability than Type 1 flooring and can withstand the weight of light machinery.
FeRFA Type 3 resin flooring
FeRFA Type 3 flooring is a heavy-duty system that is designed for areas with heavy foot traffic and heavy machinery, such as factories and manufacturing plants.
It is highly durable and can withstand chemical spills and abrasions.
FeRFA Type 4 resin flooring
FeRFA Type 4 flooring is an ultra-heavy-duty system that is used in areas with extreme conditions such as chemical plants and food processing facilities.
It is the most durable resin flooring type, and can withstand the weight of heavy machinery and forklifts.
Which FeRFA type to choose?
When choosing the right FeRFA type for your business, it’s important to consider the type of industry you are in, the amount of foot traffic and machinery your floors will be exposed to, and your budget.
For example, if you are a small retail business, FeRFA Type 1 resin flooring may be the most cost-effective option. However, if you are a large manufacturing plant, FeRFA Type 3 or Type 4 resin flooring may be necessary to ensure the safety and durability of your floors.
Additionally, you should consider the aesthetics of the flooring. Resin flooring is available in a variety of colours and textures, so it’s important to choose a flooring system that complements the overall design of your business.
