What Is the Best Flooring for Hospitals?
Cleanliness, durability, and infection control are key considerations when selecting the best flooring for a hospital or healthcare center. There are also unique needs in a clinical setting that require the flooring to withstand heavy liquid exposure from cleanings, showers and wash downs in their bath. Additionally, there are operational spaces containing the mechanical equipment in running the hospital facility as well as cafeterias with commercial food preparation for patients, visitors, and staff.
Urethane concrete and JetRock epoxy are prime choices for commercial flooring systems that support medical environments focused on the healing process like operating rooms and patient rooms. Depending on your specific requirements and the level of foot traffic, one or both of these commercial flooring options will suit your needs. Compare the commercial flooring options for yourself.
Urethane Concrete and JetRock Epoxy Flooring Benefits
Hygienic and healthy. Urethane concrete and JetRock stave off bacteria and mold. Their nonporous surfaces have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which make them a top choice for healing environments and meeting health inspector guidelines. Urethane concrete has a sealed, waterproof floor and JetRock has a watertight floor covering with no seams.
Extraordinary durability. Urethane concrete is a cost-effective flooring system that lasts up to 30 years, is customizable in endless colors for aesthetic considerations, and is one of the most durable industrial flooring solutions, especially for medical environments. Three times stronger than concrete, the JetRock epoxy blend has a 10-15 year lifespan and withstands extreme temperatures and chemicals. It can endure mechanical shocks from heavy machinery, thermal cycling, and continual industrial cleaning often required in waiting rooms, baths, and other staff and patient areas.
Watertight healthcare flooring. The integrated base of JetRock epoxy and urethane concrete’s properties prevents leaking into adjacent rooms to avoid medical service disruptions. Allows the staff to use enough water to clean the floor properly without worrying.
Safe and environmentally friendly. Hospital patients and staff will experience maximum safety with the nonslip floors in the clinical and operational areas. We do not use solvents in the installation, so no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are released throughout your medical facility.
No service interruptions. Urethane concrete is installed over a weekend. JetRock offers fast delivery and overnight installation. Both minimize interruptions to medical services. Check out our easy installation process.
Stress-free and Low maintenance. Once installed your flooring will require little to no maintenance over its lifetime in your healthcare facility.
