Products for healthcare


In the healthcare market today, when you select interior surface finishes for any refurbishment or new build projects, there are many factors that you need to take into consideration.

Surface finishes must

  • meet the strictest infection control, hygiene and health and safety standards
  • be easy to clean
  • retain their appearance through the life of the product
  • be durable
  • retain their slip resistance
We can provide a one-stop-shop flooring and wall protection solution for the healthcare environment – a solution you can have confidence in.

We can offer you

Infection control

The World Health Organisation reports that the most frequent route of infection transmission in the healthcare industry is indirect contact.

Clean surfaces remove the breeding-ground for most bacteria. A thorough cleaning and disinfection regime to combat the spread of infection can be supported by impervious and easy to clean surfaces. It is important that equipment and surfaces should be designed for ease of cleaning and be made of materials that won’t harbour micro-bacterial growth. That’s where we can help.

Hygiene and cleaning

A healthy environment is created from the ground up, which is why we offer you an impervious system to inhibit the growth of bacteria and microorganisms from floor to ceiling. The smooth, watertight combination of our slip-resistant floors and hygienic walls inhibits the growth of microorganisms.
