Flowcrete Flooring System Delivers High Level Protection In Healthcare Environment
Flowcrete Americas utilized the latest in high performance flooring technology to deliver a customized solution at a Texan healthcare center.
Park Ten Surgical Center, located in Houston, contacted the commercial flooring specialist for advice on how to address a building defect at ground level.
A moisture problem, originated in part by the vinyl tile (VCT) installed throughout the facility, caused bubbling and delaminating floor issues that needed to be corrected immediately.
Flowcrete Americas and its approved contractor Prepco Flooring, created a tailored solution, specifically designed to solve Park Ten's flooring issue.
They were able to call on their combined expertise to deliver a complete flooring package, which offered an antimicrobial, seamless and decorative finish.
Flowfresh SLB, a seamless, self-leveling and chemical resistant polyurethane concrete system, was installed across 7,000 square feet of the facility's hallways and surgery rooms, in a decorative flake finish.
Tony Crowell, Managing Director of Flowcrete Americas, which has its headquarters in Spring, Texas, said: "Like any of Flowcrete's Flowfresh products, Flowfresh SLB contains Polygiene®, an innovative antimicrobial additive that reduces the generation of bacterial population on the surface of the floor by up to 99 per cent.
One of the Flowfresh advantages is that Polygiene® remains active 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, during the complete lifetime of the floor, for maximum hygiene performance.
In addition, Flowfresh SLB offers excellent resistance to moisture vapor transmission, eliminating the passage of water vapor to the surface, which ultimately avoids delaminating of the floor system."
The system was coated and sealed using Peran STC and Flowseal UV. These low odor products deliver a durable and robust finish to the floor system, which provides chemical and abrasion resistance and a UV stable formulation to retain the color integrity of the floor finish.
According to Chris Riedel, General Manager at Park Ten: "Thanks to past and similar successful project experiences, Flowcrete Americas and Prepco Flooring were able to delivered an antimicrobial, seamless and decorative flooring system, addressing the moisture vapor resistance required by us. We are proud to offer our patients the highest quality of care in a comfortable, convenient environment."
