THE GOOD FLOORING GUIDE

Resin flooring provides a long-lasting, high performance system for the most exacting situations, but choosing the correct system to meet your specific flooring requirements is an important part of the selection process. To assist in this, FeRFA has produced a classification system for the different floor types which forms the basis of the British Standard BS 8204-6. The FeRFA Guide to the Selection of Synthetic Resin Floors give full details on the features and characteristics of the floor types. For more information on the specification process, please refer to FeRFA Guide to the Specification & Application of Synthetic Resin Floors.

Costs are indicative and average. A cost analysis based on project specific information is essential for a realistic appraisal. Costs will vary with specific formulations, resin, colour, additional performance requirements, complexity of the floor geometry, area, joints and perimeters, need to accommodate services and subfloor preparation.
