Products for every application

Polyflor’s wall protection systems are available in an extensive range of colour, material and design options.

The full range of product options are designed to provide functional and aesthetic solutions for busy working environments.

  • Handrails, dual-rails or combination rails need to be easily identified and located for support and wayfinding. It is particularly important in healthcare or elderly care environments, where there is generally a higher percentage of users with visual impairments.
  • Wall guards: Contrasting colours can be used as navigation aids or to denote different departments within a building whilst protecting surfaces.
  • Wall cladding: Wall surfaces should visually contrast with both floor and ceiling colours so that the size and shape of the room can be accurately interpreted by users with visual impairments.
  • Door protection: Colour can be used to make doors stand out for access and navigation whist protecting busy thoroughfares.
  • Corner guards: Can be used to protect corners and building elements such as pillars that get so easily damaged in high traffic areas.
