A guide to commercial non-slip vinyl flooring

Our latest guide to the best commercial non-slip flooring for dogs from Floors for Paws.

Commercial premises come in many forms in today’s world from factories and shops, to offices and hotels. There are also many types of business that welcome dogs into their premises, from veterinary practices and dog grooming businesses, to canine cafes and dog daycare centres. Increasingly, too, businesses are becoming more pet friendly, with many pubs and shops allowing our four legged friends to come in, not to mention any establishment that welcomes assistance dogs and their owners. With this in mind, we look at why flooring choice is so important.

What we need from commercial vinyl flooring

Commercial flooring that does not have to endure four-legged traffic still needs to be hardwearing and durable while being attractive and low maintenance. When we add dogs into the mix, the list of features our flooring has to offer increases!

What does commercial flooring for dogs need to offer?

In addition to the above features, the best flooring for dogs should be comfortable (they spend a lot of time lying down!), waterproof, scratch-resistant and non-slip. Neighbours might also prefer it to be sound absorbing!

At Floors for Paws, we specialise in the best flooring for dogs and we offer three pet-friendly flooring options. Our luxury vinyl range is perfect for creating beautiful floors in homes of every style and type. Offered in tiles or planks, in a choice of wood- and stone-effect finishes, this beautiful flooring is ideal for creating traditional herringbone patterns.

Pawsafe Domestic range

Endorsed by Canine Arthritis Management (CAM) for its suitability for dogs suffering from arthritis, our Pawsafe Domestic range of vinyl flooring has the highest slip rating of any luxury vinyl plank currently on the market. This makes it ideal where dogs of any age need to have a secure footing that will reduce the risk of slipping or falling. Where smooth, hard and unforgiving flooring (wood, laminate and ceramic tiles) can worsen pre-existing conditions such as hip dysplasia, or cause injuries that can contribute to its development, the Pawsafe Domestic range provides a non-slip, textured surface. It also offers a high level of sound absorption plus a thick wear layer and a comfort layer for extra cushioning.

The Pawsafe Domestic range is recommended for homes and all pet friendly businesses where it provides an attractive and warm welcome to visitors. When professionally installed, the range carries a 30-year domestic guarantee or a 10-year commercial guarantee.

Pawsafe Commercial range

Our Pawsafe Commercial range is a vinyl roll flooring that is completely waterproof. With the same high slip rating as our Domestic range and endorsed by CAM (learn more here), this is the perfect flooring for vet practices and canine cafes, and can be washed down daily. When used alongside our Pawsafe Domestic range, this commercial non-slip vinyl flooring offers a complete solution for entrance  and reception rooms, consultation rooms and operating theatres.
