More about this product

From a design point of view, a hospital is a complex unity made of multiple elements:

  • Entrances and corridors are subjected to heavy foot traffic
  • Family rooms thrive on a soft, relaxed atmosphere
  • Specialist areas require strict and effective infection control
  • Patient rooms floors are prone to indentation

Through all these different requirements, Artigo rubber floorings offer tested and valid solutions.

Infection Control

Healthcare installations are especially cautious with infection control. Cracks in the floors may facilitate bacteria growth. Artigo rubber floorings will not crack since they do not contain plasticizers. They are also inherently antibacterial and antimicrobial. A perfect choice for healthcare.

The smoother the surface, the better it is. Smooth surfaces restrict cracks and crevices and help prevent the spread of harmful bacteria through cross-contamination. Artigo surfaces are also non-porous, so harmful bacteria can’t find a home and grow.

Indentation

One of the most important challenges that rubber floors face in the healthcare sector is certainly indentation, due to the constant pressure exercised by beds, furniture and medical equipment.

These 2 mm-thick floorings have shown exceptional performance to indentation resistance.

Easy Cleaning

Rubber floorings can easily be cleaned with professional products every day as part of a hospital’s comprehensive infection control measures.

Environmental Design

Artigo floorings are compliant to the most important environmental certifications both in Europe (Blue Angel in Germany, M1 in Finland) and America (Greenguard Gold).

Artigo floorings represent a real contribution to healthier environments in public buildings and qualify for LEED and BREEAM credits for green buildings.

Resilience and Shorter-Lifespan Considerations

Rubber floors have proved time and again to stand the test of time, even longer than expected.

However, the healthcare market continues to reach further into communities and away from the traditional hospital for many front-line services. Healthcare buildings used to be designed for more than 50-year life spans, but many of the smaller off-campus outpatient facilities are now looking at 20 years or less.

With their easy installation, these rubber floorings are the ideal solution for quick-changing times.

At the end of their life, rubber floorings resemble solid urban waste and are, hence, easy to dispose of.
