Durable hospital floors that are eco-friendly

Hospital floors are exposed to heavy use twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and never get a break, so it is critical that they are durable and long-lasting to reduce costs and their carbon footprint. Superflex, vinyl floor sheeting or tiles, is one of the most versatile floors available for the healthcare sector and has a Group M abrasion resistance rating which means it has high durability in terms of performance.

Range of colours, textures and patterns
This floor is used in hospital entrance areas, corridors, nursing units, patient rooms, examination rooms, operating theatres, X-ray rooms and bathrooms. Superflex is also a popular choice for hospital corridors as it contains certain elements such as colour, texture and patterns that can be used to give cues to people trying to navigate the hospital.

The 16-colour range can be combined in innumerable ways and allows architects free rein to integrate designs such as signage, zone boundaries and even pattern work into the flooring. Superflex is also a low volatile organic compound floor which creates a pleasant and healthier environment for patients, visitors and staff.

Eco friendly composition
The range is made from 56% natural content, is fully recyclable and adheres to SAN581 standards. FloorworX’s production has become more sustainable over the years with the company’s East London manufacturing plant being certified according to the ISO 9001 international standard for quality.

When choosing Superflex for your floors, you are making an environmentally conscious decision.

The company is committed to assisting project managers across South Africa by providing environmentally friendly floorcoverings, adhesives, accessories and maintenance products. This enables everyone in the built environment to design sustainable healthcare buildings with environmentally-friendly floors celebrating sustainable vinyl.
