Flooring in a healthcare setting
With all of the sophisticated equipment that goes into a healthcare facility, the choice of flooring can often be a secondary thought. However, the materials used can have significant effects on both the patients and the staff.

Using the proper type of flooring can improve patient care, enhance medical outcomes, and reduce medical errors and waste. Moreover, research has shown that a healthcare facility with healthy indoor environmental qualities results in faster healing, shorter hospital stays, and fewer return visits. Also, flooring with higher comfort is extremely beneficial to the plethora of medical staff members who are on their feet for most of the day.

Cleanrooms require the highest quality, easy maintenance flooring solution that offers highest levels of protection. From slip-resistance to watertight sealing, SelecTech has the answers you’ve been searching for.
