RP+ allows property owners and facilities managers to extend floor life by over 20 years, while maintaining a high quality, clean finish.

CleanSafe Services National Account Director Chris MacDonald said: “The technical capabilities of the RP+ service have been rigorously tested using industry best practice methodologies.

“It has been proven to deliver highly-durable protection for resilient floors, and excellent anti-slip properties, achieving 36+ wet PTV scores using the pendulum test used by the Health and Safety Executive.

“Using the CleanSafe RP+ service makes serious financial sense, increases the safety and wellbeing of pedestrians, and safeguards an organisation’s reputation and financial stability by greatly reducing the risk of slip and trip litigation.”

CleanSafe Services is contracted to work with a wide range of blue-chip companies, including Sainsbury’s, Network Rail, and Mitchells and Butlers to clean, seal and apply anti-slip coatings to floors.

Resilient floors are manufactured with a thin protective surface seal, which prevents dirt ingress and provides anti-slip properties. However, this seal can wear quickly. Conventionally, this leads to the floors being replaced, on average, every seven years.

By using CleanSafe RP+, property managers can break this costly cycle, and deliver anti-slip protection with a 1 in 1,000,000 or less risk of a slip incident.

Over a 30-year life cycle, by protecting a floor with RP+ rather than replacing it regularly, savings of £20,000 per 250m2 of flooring can be achieved. That is equivalent to a 25% lifetime cost saving.

With CleanSafe RP+, there are also options to recolour existing floors, to ensure they can be kept up to date with an organisation’s brand identity.

Thanks to pioneering ultra-violet light curing technology, RP+ floors can be instantly sealed, saving clients the cost and inconvenience of the downtime needed to apply conventional floor products.
