IMPACT ABSORBING VINYL FLOOR UNDERLAY
- for wet and dry areas

Introducing Kradal™ - A new energy absorbing flooring technology designed to reduce the chance of fall-related injury

Kradal™ is a new technology to optimise energy absorption on impact with the floor or ground in order to reduce the likelihood of a fracture or an injury from a fall, while at the same time minimising deflection to avoid increasing the rate of falls.

Karlstad University in Sweden, (published in “Injury Prevention” , a BMJ Group Journal) found Kradal™️ Flooring to reduce the likelihood of injury from falling by nearly 60%.

Kradal™️ Smart Foam underlay is installed under sheet vinyl or linoleum.

Kradal™️ has fantastic acoustic noise reduction qualities, is antimicrobial and it can be installed in both wet and dry areas such as bathrooms, hallways and bedrooms as it is non-water absorbing. Ask us about our floor drain tile for showers.

Kradal™️ Flooring is designed for the Aged-Care sector for use in both residential and assisted-living facilities. 

Kradal™️ Flooring is currently installing in gymnasium and child-care facilities.

Firm But Soft Impact Flooring

Fractures are a common yet serious injury resulting from falls. In Australia, hip and thigh fracture account for 32.5% of cases, spine and pelvis at 12.5%, and elbow and forearm at 12%. The average cost of treatment of fractures is approximately $15,000 with hip fractures costing $30,000.

Impact Testing showed a 46% force reduction compared to vinyl flooring.

Why Impact Absorbing Flooring is Essential

  • Each year in Australia an estimated 1 in 3 people aged over 65 experience fall.

  • In 2016-17, 52% of people over 65 suffered from a fracture.

  • Adults in residential aged care were 5 times more likely to experience a fall compared to community-dwelling elderly people.

  • An independent study in Sweden, which was peer reviewed and published, has found that Kradal reduces the chance of injury by nearly 60%.
