The medical industry has strict regulations on building materials, including flooring in healthcare facilities like hospitals. Not only do the floors need to be safe for patients and medical staff, but they also need to be comfortable for the doctors and nurses that are on their feet all day. They need to be relatively easy to clean and should allow for easy rolling of wheelchairs, medical carts, and hospital beds.
What is Protect-All Flooring?
Protect-All flooring is an environmentally friendly, safe, and slip-resistant vinyl flooring. It is non-porous, noise reducing, and is comfortable for walking and standing for extended periods of time. Protect-All is almost entirely made up of pre-consumer recycled material. Its installation requires a factory-trained installer and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Why is Protect-All Great for Hospitals?
Reason #1 – It’s Resistant.
Hospitals often see serious spills and messes, and Protect-All flooring is resistant to stains, water, and slips. This helps promote safety of both patients and staff traveling through the hospital. The vinyl will not swell or decompose when exposed to heavy amounts of liquids, and is resistant to mold and mildew.
Reason #2 – It’s Comfortable.
Protect-All flooding provides comfort underfoot and is made of material that helps to reduce leg fatigue, which is a huge benefit for hospital staff that are constantly on their feet. The need for rubber fatigue mats is reduced, which helps lower the risk of people tripping and falling.
Reason #3 – It’s Customizable.
You don’t have to compromise aesthetics with Protect-All flooring in your hospital – it comes in eight different colors and various textures. It can be installed in either matte or gloss finishes.
Additional benefits of Protect-All flooring:
- It out-performs other floors in terms of functionality in rooms with subzero or irregularly warm temperatures.
- It requires no waxing or stripping.
- It is odor and bacteria resistant.
- It only requires minimal maintenance.
- Its ¼” thickness helps to absorb sound.
- It can reduce flooring seams by 80%+ when compared to 6-inch square tile.
