Laboratory floors are an extremely important component of any research laboratory, which requires special attention and appropriate selection of materials due to the specifics of the work and characteristics of the laboratory. Like any laboratory, they must be characterized by safety and maintain proper conditions in laboratory work. Below I present the characteristics of the different types of floors used in laboratories:

1. Ceramic and terracotta floors:
They are durable and resistant to mechanical damage.
They have good resistance to chemicals.
However, they can be slippery, especially when substances are spilled, which can increase the risk of falls.

2. Floors made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride):
They are relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
They have good resistance to many chemicals.
They are resistant to moisture and easy to clean.
They are not very resistant to mechanical stress, so they can be damaged, especially under heavy use.

3. Epoxy floors:
They are highly resistant to chemicals and aggressive substances.
They have excellent resistance to mechanical wear.
They are smooth and easy to clean.
However, installation of these floors requires a professional approach, which can increase costs.

4. Laminate floors:
They are relatively durable and resistant to stains and scratches.
They can be relatively easy to install.
However, they are not as resistant to chemicals as some other types of flooring, so spills on laminate should be avoided.

5. Floors made of rubber or vinyl:
They are flexible, allowing them to absorb shock and noise.
They have good resistance to many chemicals.
Easy to keep clean.
They can be used in laboratories where there is a lot of traffic.

Some laboratories may require a combination of different types of flooring to suit the specific requirements of each zone (e.g., zones where chemicals are present or zones where there is more traffic, or so-called "cleanroom" zones). It is important that the flooring is selected in accordance with the recommendations of safety regulations, the requirements specific to the laboratory area, and that it is regularly maintained and cleaned to maintain proper hygiene and safety conditions.
