Just as in anything else, there’s protective flooring and there’s PROTECTIVE FLOORING. For instance are we speaking of protective flooring that is suitable for a restaurant kitchen, or perhaps you are seeking rubber fitness mats? How about protective flooring for performing aerobics? Perhaps your flooring needs even more protection as you have a martial arts school where they do mixed martial arts, grappling and dojo? What of locker rooms with drains in your floors, or spike protection? Any kind of institutional and industrial floors you can mention will need some kind of protective flooring.

If you run a garage, then your protective flooring needs to be able to put up with grease, tires, the weight of cars, and even dropped tools that may totally decimate other floors, thus you need very strong protective flooring. On the other hand, let’s say that you own a restaurant; you need protective flooring so that your kitchen is as immaculate as you can make it. There need be absolutely no pin holes in your flooring at all so that microbes and other nasties cannot enter your subflooring and grow into worse nasties.

Let’s say that you are a pet shop, imagine how the protective flooring there needs to be totally sealed, so that nothing, not feces, not urine from those pets can possibly penetrate it, or else you establishment would begin to smell very badly. You need to have flooring that is extremely easy to clean too of course.

You would even need protective flooring if you ran a pizza shop that only does take out, for instance. Now you not only have food handling, but those terribly hot ovens running close to 24 hours a day! Yet, your freezer needs protective flooring too!

Is there some kind of flooring that fits all these descriptions? Why, yes there is! Silikal is the answer to all of them.
