spaces are an important part of every building. They must be hygienic, comfortable and safe for users. But how do you choose the right floor for a sanitary room? And which floor is resistant to moisture, dirt and bacteria?

We are happy to show you what requirements a floor for sanitary areas must meet, which floors are suitable for a sanitary area and why you should choose a floor from ICM Projects. Read on and discover everything about floors for sanitary areas.

What requirements must a floor for sanitary areas meet?

A floor for sanitary facilities must meet a number of requirements to guarantee quality, safety and durability. Some important features include:

  • Water resistance: the floor must be resistant to water and moisture, because sanitary areas such as bathrooms, shower rooms and toilets often get wet.
  • Anti-slip: it is essential that the floor has a good anti-slip property to prevent slipping accidents, especially in combination with water.
  • Easy to clean: Floors in a washroom should be easy to clean to ensure hygiene.
  • Durability: A washroom floor must be long lasting and resistant to wear and tear as it is often exposed to heavy use.
  • Mold and bacteria resistant: the floor should not be a breeding ground for fungi and bacteria.
  • Aesthetically pleasing: Depending on the style and design of the washroom, it is desirable that the floor looks aesthetically pleasing.
  • Comfortable to walk on: if the sanitary room is used intensively, it is nice if the floor is comfortable to walk on, for example with bare feet.
  • Good thermal insulation (optional): In some cases, thermal insulation may be desirable, especially if the room is located in a cold location.

The choice of flooring material can vary depending on specific requirements and budget. There are different options of floors for a sanitary area.

Which floors are suitable for a sanitary area?

Not all floors are suitable for a sanitary area. Some floors cannot withstand moisture, dirt or wear. Other floors are too slippery, too porous or too difficult to clean. That is why it is important to choose a floor that meets the requirements for a sanitary area, such as:

  • PU cast floors
  • Epoxy floors
  • Trowel floors
  • MMA floors
  • Floor coating

The above floors meet the requirements for floors in a sanitary area. With liquid-tight, slip-resistant and dirt-resistant features, these floors are ideal for installation in a sanitary area.
