Gerflor and Gradus say they are delighted to be exhibiting their contract interior solutions for all areas of a healthcare facility at this year’s Healthcare Estates event.
The two companies have over 80 years’ healthcare experience as a manufacturer of ‘innovative and high performance’ flooring, wall protection, and interior finishing solutions. They said: “These hygienic innovations are treated with patented surface treatments that provide an unrivalled level of chemical and stain resistance. The world-class vinyl and linoleum collections are perfectly suited to hardworking spaces, including environments where there is intensive movement of beds, trolleys, wheelchairs, and heavy medical equipment, on a 24-hour basis.
Gradus is a UK manufacturer of contract interior solutions – including stair edgings, floor trims, barrier matting and wall protection, which it says ‘help to create attractive and functional environments, as well as enhance and protect healthcare interiors’. The company added: “Gradus solutions are proven to enhance the longevity of a building, while reducing long-term maintenance costs. We work with the healthcare sector to ensure that buildings are safe and accessible for all users. Visit us on stand F26 to find out more about how our fusion of innovative products and world-class service can support healthcare professionals with all critical building projects.”
With the extensive portfolio of Gerflor and Gradus solutions, the two companies say users can reduce their operational carbon footprint in healthcare buildings. “Whether it’s floorings or wall protection panels for hard-working places, our sustainable solutions take care of the planet, the environment, and also the people,” they said. “It’s all about recycled content, the way the products are manufactured and transported, their durability and longevity, and end-of-life options. As pioneers of sustainable solutions, visit us to find more about how we are making a difference in the healthcare world.
Gerflor says its ‘trusted and patented’ surface treatments, and its ‘exclusive’ Clean Corner Systems, ensure that healthcare facilities can stand up to any rigorous maintenance regime – especially in areas – such as ultraclean healthcare and laboratory applications – where cleanliness and disinfection are key. It explained: “The exclusive surface treatments deliver a superior balance between ease of cleaning and disinfection while minimising operational cleaning costs. Specifiers can bundle this together with the Gradus portfolio of hygienic wall cladding solutions, which create an impermeable barrier to moisture and bacteria, with inert materials that minimise the bacterial growth. A smooth seamless finish is achievable for critical clean areas with SureProtect Pure.”
Where the goal is to reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls, Gradus can help via the provision of flooring for ramps of differing heights, slip-resistant indoor vinyl and linoleum surfaces, and wall protection – in the form of handrails or stair edgings for enhanced grip and visibility.
