Healthcare and Hospital Flooring

Within the healthcare sector there are stringent regulations on flooring standards, and it is vital that these are adhered to.

In fact, it is within this sector where there are some of the highest risks associated with improper flooring standards.

Resin flooring can be tailored for a specific purpose and provide a seamless floor that complies with the Health Building Note 00-10 Part A Flooring.

There is a huge array of different industries that require these specialist flooring solutions, including hospitals and the wider healthcare sector such as care homes, but also within the pharmaceutical industry as well.

There are numerous possible designs, however with all the different solutions there are demanding industry standards for cleanliness and hygiene that must be met. Therefore, there are a number of different factors to consider.

Important considerations when installing different hospital floors

  • Anti-Microbial Properties – 
    • The risk of microbial transfer and infection in a healthcare environment is high, so the importance of an anti-microbial flooring solution is paramount.
  • Electrical Conductivity & Anti-Static Requirements – 
    • In a healthcare setting there is constant use of sensitive electronic and maintenance equipment. This equipment can lead to the risk of static charge or electronic failure, which needs to be factored in when designing your floor.
  • Chemical Resistance – 
    • Chemicals are commonly stored and transported within the healthcare industry. Spills and chemical contact have the potential to be highly damaging, so this is an important consideration when deciding on flooring solutions.
  • Hygiene – 
    • Rigorous hygiene specifications are at the core of the design of hospital flooring, and at the forefront of required hospital flooring standards.
  • Slip Resistance – 
    • Choosing a suitable solution is a vital factor in the prevention of slips, which is required in law by the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.

All flooring solutions used must meet the strictest infection control, hygiene, and health and safety standards. With every product used we always look at high-performance technology solutions that allow you to comply with these standards.
