Selection Of Flooring To Be Applied

The new BS 8204-6 (following the FeRFA Guide) states in section 4.2 that:

"It is essential that, in the design and construction stages, there should be full consultation with the manufacturer of the synthetic resin flooring to ensure that the product to be selected is entirely suited for the conditions both during application and in subsequent service".

Consideration should therefore be given to whichever of the following are applicable:     

a) Intended use of the synthetic resin flooring including the type, extent and frequency of trafficking; this can be categorised, as follows:
 
Light duty (LD)
Light foot traffic; occasional rubber tyred vehicles
 
Medium duty (MD)
Regular foot traffic; frequent fork lift truck traffic; occasional hard plastic-wheeled trolleys
 
Heavy duty (HD)
Constant fork lift truck traffic; hard plastic wheeled trolleys; some impact
 
Very heavy duty (VHD)
Severe heavily loaded traffic and impact
b)
Type of loading, static or dynamic, and severity of impact
c)
Details of all chemicals, including those used for cleaning or sterilising, which could come into contact with the floor, and extent, frequency and temperature of spillage
d)
Temperatures that the flooring is required to withstand in normal service or as part of the cleaning operations and whether exposure is by radiant or conductive heat or by direct contact
e)
Colour, uniformity and retention, aesthetics and decorative effects
f)
Extent to which the flooring will be exposed to direct sunlight or ultra-violet light
g)
Appearance and quality of finish
h)
Need to reduce risk of osmosis
i)
Compliance with hygiene or food industry requirements
j)
Special requirements, such as slip resistance or anti-static characteristics
k)
Expected life of the flooring
l)
Thickness of flooring to be installed
m)
Time available for the application and curing of the flooring
n)
Age, specification where known and nature of the base, including information about any previous use of the floor which could affect adhesion, and any preparatory treatment required
