What Makes the Reflections Wood Floor Program Different?

What Makes the Reflections Wood Floor Program Different?

The Reflections® Wood Floor Program is built around meeting and exceeding tough environmental regulations, and manufacturing products that are easier and safer for employees to use, while also meeting the stringent expectations of Facility Administrators.

Health Safety Features

Reflections wood floor coatings do not require crosslinkers, which contain polyfunctional aziridene. Other manufacturers use this raw material to crosslink their products for durability. Unfortunately, this crosslinker can have a negative impact on the health of employees and visitors, including respiratory and nervous system health implications.

All Reflections wood floor coatings meet the strict VOC regulations of each state and are single component, 100% urethane products. Using 100% urethane products significantly improves indoor air quality, worker and visitor health safety, and reduces mixing mistakes and overall costs. 

Urethane Wood Floor Coatings

Reflections offers both water-based and oil-based wood floor coatings. When a wood floor is first installed, it’s important to keep water away while the floor boards expand, contract and stretch. For the first few years of a wood floor’s life, oil-based wood floor coatings can help fill the grooves of the new wood floor and move with the floor as it settles. Reflections’ Coliseum® Oil-Based Wood Floor Coatings are easy to apply and meet VOC compliancy in every state. They offer superior gloss, exceptional durability, and are scratch and scuff resistant.

For older wood floors, Reflections’ Arena® Water-Based Wood Floor Coatings offer the lowest VOCs, allowing for wood floors to be recoated during normal business hours. Unlike oil-based wood floor coatings, Arena Water-Based Wood Floor Coatings allow for light sports play just 48 hours after the last coat is applied and fully cure 1 week after the last coat is applied.

In addition to mild scents, high gloss, and exceptional durability, Arena® 300 with Microban® Technology provides facilities with an extra level of protection. Microban protection is built-in to Arena 300 during the manufacturing process, and provides continual 24/7 antimicrobial protection for the life of the coating while it is on your floor. Microban protection continuously fights the growth of microbes, making floors easier to clean and keeping them cleaner, longer.

How Much Are You Spending on Wood Floors?

How Much Are You Spending on Wood Floors?

Wood floors are some of the most beautiful floors in your facility. They’re also some of the most expensive floors. The Buckeye Reflections® Wood Floor Program can help reduce the cost of maintaining your wood floors, enabling you to recoat them in-house, utilizing equipment already available in your facility.

Reflections products can help you achieve cleaner, brighter, longer-lasting floors that can extend your maintenance cycles. Depending on your facility needs, Reflections offers the greenest, lowest VOC water-based wood floor coatings and the latest, state-of-the-art oil-based wood floor coatings. Reflections maintenance products will clean and restore gloss to your floors between coatings without damaging the floor coating.

In addition to providing superior gloss and durability, Reflections also wants to put the health and well-being of students first. Reflections offers Arena® 300 Microban® Antimicrobial Wood Floor Coating, a wood floor coating that continuously fights the growth of microbes and bacteria at no additional cost to you. When microbes come in contact with the product surface, Microban protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts the cell, making the microorganism unable to grow and reproduce.

Top-of-the-line products combined with in-person and online training is key to the success of the Reflections Wood Floor Program. Buckeye’s full line of wood floor care products comes with hands-on, personalized training from a Reflections representative. This hands-on training covers preparation, recoating, and maintaining your wood floors. For additional assistance, the Buckeye Honors Program can help employees review procedures and teach new employees the proper techniques. Honors presents the complete Reflections Program through a series of videos, providing tests for employees and reporting so managers can review progress of employees.

Door to Floor: 3 Levels of Protection

Door to Floor: 3 Levels of Protection

Now more than ever, it’s important to keep your facilities cleaner and safer for guests and employees with the proper programs and procedures. As facilities reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic, Buckeye can help protect visitors and employees.

Level 1: Hand Hygiene

Protect yourself with the Symmetry® Hand Hygiene Program.

Because the CDC states that handwashing is one of the best ways you can help reduce the spread of germs, implementing a hand hygiene program is an important step in protecting your facility and the people who visit.

The Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program provides tools that promote education, awareness, and motivation to practice hand hygiene. Symmetry understands the importance of hand hygiene acceptance and manufactures products that people want to use in a reliable dispensing system. Symmetry hand washes and hand sanitizers are gentle on hands and leave no sticky residue behind.

The FDA is addressing potential safety concerns related to products that are not in line with its policy standards and others being marketed with unproven COVID-19 related claims. The FDA cautions consumers to be vigilant of products sold with misleading, unproven claims. Symmetry is committed to supplying superior hand sanitizers manufactured in an FDA registered and ISO certified facility. Our products contain only FDA compliant ethanol and perform to the highest standards.

Level 2: Cleaning and Disinfecting

Frequently protect your facility with the Eco® Proportioning Program.

The CDC recommends cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces following product label directions and proper dwell times. Buckeye’s Eco Proportioning Program is fully integrated with effective, hermetically sealed products, including EPA emerging pathogen disinfectants for any application.

Eco Disinfectants Buckeye Eco One-Step Disinfectant/Deodorizer/Cleaner E22 Buckeye Eco Neutral Disinfectant E23 S23

Manufactured with proprietary technology, the Buckeye Eco proportioning system’s innovative design and Eco super concentrated products produce maximum efficiency.

Level 3: Microban® Antimicrobial Product Protection

Continually protect your facility with Clarion® 25 Microban Antimicrobial Floor Finish and Arena® 300 Microban Antimicrobial Wood Floor Coating.

Microban technology is built-in to these products during the manufacturing process. When microbes come in contact with the product surface, Microban technology penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts the cell, making the microorganism unable to grow and reproduce. Microban technology works 24/7 and is EPA registered.

Buckeye provides customized social distancing signage for entrances, floors, walls, carts, and registers as well as training for all products and programs to ensure proper procedures are in place to keep facilities clean and ready for visitors.
