Mortuaries, Garages and Post-Mortem Facilities

Mortuary and post-mortem facilities must be designed to ensure the highest levels of hygiene are met.  By choosing a floor with a seamless and impervious coving and finish, the spread of bacteria can be prevented and the chance of bacteria building up in cracks and hard-to-clean corners will be minimised.   Mortuaries and post-mortem facilities undergo a strict and frequent cleaning regime and floors need to withstand heavy impact from both equipment, footfall and vehicles. 

Applying polyurethane screeds and coatings containing antimicrobial properties reduces the growth of bacteria and will ensure your flooring maintains integrity in its sanitary standards.  More information on HBN flooring guidelines can be found here:

We recommend repairing or installing stainless-steel drainage to assist with maintaining your hygienic and bacteria-free environment.

Technical Considerations

Hygiene – a core part of the flooring system design in mortuary and post-mortem premises.

Coving & Drainage – essential components in making sure the environment is bacteria-free.

Slip Resistance – what type of traffic uses the floor?

Impact Resistance – do any areas of the floor withstand high impact?

Chemical Resistance – aggressive cleaning products are likely to be handled or stored in this environment.
