Operating theatres

In the demanding environment of an operating theatre, you need interior surfaces you can rely on to help you maintain Health and Safety standards. It’s essential that surfaces are safe, hygienic and easy to clean so they contribute to infection control, patient safety and efficient operations.

To maintain an aseptic environment you require flooring, walling and doorsets which are resistant to most chemicals and staining and are totally cleanable, as well as sustained slip-resistance to keep you safe underfoot.

Another consideration is durability. Resistance to heavy traffic is vital as you move trolleys and other wheeled / mobile equipment into place
