H Bells Banks on Polyflor for Indoor Market Transformation
A selection of Polysafe and Expona products were the floor of choice for H Bell and Sons as they undertook the transformation of a former bank building into a stylish new indoor market, complete with café and fresh food stalls.
Set in Rochdale Town Centre, the three storey, 1920s property has been turned into a brand new shopping and eating hub alongside the River Roch. Extensive work has been undertaken with the creation of a new atrium, a new roof and installation of lifts before reinforcing the floors ready for a selection of new Polyflor floor coverings including Expona Commercial Aged Elm, Polysafe Apex Chromite, and Expona Flow Smoked Oak.
Expona Flow was fitted for the walkways and the restaurant and Expona Commercial, fitted on the top floor. Polysafe Apex was specified in the ground floor food hall, the chromite design contrasted with the Expona Flow to allow the contractor to highlight certain areas on the ground floor with the Expona Flow wood effect sheet vinyl used for walkways and the Polysafe Apex for the food stalls.
Louise Scott from H Bell and Sons comments, ‘Polyflor Expona allowed us to transform this building into a stylish hub that we hope can become the centre point for the local community, whilst the Polysafe Apex can provide the safety and assurance of sustainable wet slip resistance for a food hall where there is regular risk of contaminants. Each have a high durability for years of performance in what will hopefully be a high footfall commercial area.’
