Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Flooring
Resin flooring is used widely in the medical sector as a hygienic and decorative flooring solution. This hard-wearing material is also used within the manufacturing of medical supplies. You can find resin flooring within pharmaceutical factories, as a clinical flooring solution as well as in salons and the beauty sector.
Monarch are specialist flooring contractors who work within this area installing resin floors across the UK. We specialise in the installation of resin flooring which is long-lasting and hard-wearing against the day to day use of the busy healthcare sector.
Why use resin flooring
Resin flooring is used within the healthcare sector due to its versatility as a material. A resin floor can have high chemical resistance, have anti-slip properties and be easy to sanitise. Resin coving can also be installed as well as resin line marking. It really is a versatile flooring product and is applied in many ways within the healthcare sector.
Anti-slip flooring solutions create a floor which has added grip for busy pedestrian areas. Hygienic systems offer floors which are easy to clean and sanitise. There are many different factors which make resin flooring a perfect solution for the healthcare sector.
The decorative element of resin flooring can create a pattern within the floor to separate certain areas. For example, in a GP practice or surgery flooring there can be one colour resin for waiting areas, blocks of colour to show where equipment is stored, pathways within hospitals to properly outline walkways. You can even use a multitude of colours within the floor to show pathways to different departments, e.g. an orange pathway to x-ray rooms and a blue pathway to the reception. Within a children’s hospital, flooring can be a bright element to help a child adjust to a different environment. There are many possibilities with resin flooring in hospitals and the healthcare sector.
As well as providing flooring for pharmacies and hospitals etc, our flooring solutions are also suited to manufacturing environments. The production of medicines at pharmaceutical production and processing plants need a floor which is tough against chemical spills, has anti-slip properties and is hard wearing against constant use.
Flooring for GPs and other medical facilities needs to be strong, resilient and easy to clean. Resin flooring provides a range of advantages for the healthcare sector.
Liquid linoleum flooring can withstand pressure from furniture and equipment and be able to recover from those impressions. This is ideal in environments where furniture and equipment are frequently moved as it will not damage the floor in the same way as it would with carpet or standard lino.
As a noise dampening floor, it can limit the sound of a busy setting where there can be a lot of footfall from patients and employees.
Liquid linoleum is also referred to as comfort flooring, this is due to its soft finish. This is well suited as a GP or indeed a surgery flooring solution allowing a softness underfoot as opposed to hard ground. This eases the strain on employees who are constantly on their feet or on the move.
Clinical flooring solutions can also be achieved by resin as it is highly suited as a medical flooring material.
Pharmaceutical processing flooring
Healthcare flooring is a durable and hygienic solution which suits many sectors. Along with a pharmacy floor, the manufacturing side can also benefit from a resin healthcare flooring system. As with any manufacturing, it requires a floor which is resilient against day to day wear. Therefore, a tough resin floor is well suited for that setting along with its added hygienic flooring features.
We work with our clients to make sure that the flooring we install helps them to be compliant according to the (GMP/GDP) government standards. We have worked with many different types of manufacturing in the past and know the importance of health and safety within this area.
Resin skirting can be added to floors within the healthcare sector to create a seamless meeting of wall and floor. Without the edge between the floor and wall, no dirt or bacteria can be trapped in corners allowing an easy to clean and sanitise floor which does not collect dirt or dust. A seamless resin floor is a hygienic, durable option for pharmaceutical processing flooring and can be made to many different slip resistance and chemical resistant grades.
We also can work with you to add in demarcation and resin line marking where necessary to aid in the health and safety and efficiency of the manufacturing building or pharmaceutical processing plant.
These are the standard colours which you can find most of our resin products. We can also manufacture resin products in RAL and British Standard colours. Take a look at the RAL Colour Chart for the full range of colours as a guide. If you have a particular colour in mind we can best match it to this chart. For example,if you wanted to match to a particular paint colour or tile which you have seen.
