Flexigrid helps keeps kitchen staff safe

After the tiled kitchen floor at luxury Greek hotel Amanzoe became slippery and unsafe, hotel management sought out a slip resistant solution that wouldn't involve replacing the whole floor.

The problem

Amanzoe, a luxury Greek resort and hotel on the southern coast of Greece, serves hundreds of people each day from their busy kitchen and bar spaces. But hotel management quickly realised that staff were being slowed down by the tiled floor, which became incredibly slippery when wet. They needed a slip-resistant surface with excellent grip that would quickly drain and dissipate any unwanted liquid and food waste. Regular daily cleaning meant the matting also needed to be easy to handle.

The checklist

  • Suitable for use in a hot, humid and wet environment
  • Provides anti-fatigue properties for standing employees
  • Quickly drains both small and large amounts of liquids
  • Lightweight and easy to roll for regular cleaning

The solution

With so many daily spillages, it was vital that the matting could cope with a large quantity of liquid. The perfect solution was Flexigrid, heavy duty matting with an open-grid structure and excellent grip. The diamond-tread surface delivers the highest slip resistance, while the elevated 3/4" height means any hazardous matter can be quickly dispersed and drained.

Flexigrid is also perfect with employees on their feet: the two-layer construction provides comfortable cushioning to help reduce fatigue and boost productivity. The one-piece covering can be loose laid for quick installation, and easily rolled up to facilitate regular cleaning.

“We recommended Flexigid as we know it’s very effective in this kind of situation. The combination of spillages including soapy water and tiled floors doesn't mix well, and there's a significant risk to staff slipping. Flexigrid provides an effective slip resistant and comfortable surface.”
