Project Summary

Client           Royal Australian Navy
Location Sydney, New South Wales
Colour Light Grey (N35)
Area 130m2
Installer Defence Floors


  • The specialist wet-space system developed by Defence Floors uses Jaxxon industrial epoxies to create a non-slip floor designed to last in the harshest environments.

  • For a side-by-side trial with the traditional flooring option it was installed in the galley and scullery onboard HMAS Darwin, with a particular focus on performance in the aggressive areas underneath the deep fryer and within the oven secondary containment.

  • After 18 months of service the results were excellent. The floor had no signs of cracking or chemical breakdown and it was deemed to have out-performed the other flooring system. In response, the client gained enough confidence in the system to continue rolling it out across other wet spaces onboard the FFG class of vessels.
