The healthcare industry requires mission-critical performance from a commercial flooring system. The versatility of polished concrete offers an array of benefits that facilities should recognize.
Polished concrete has become the solution of choice for many commercial clients including healthcare, medical device and drug production manufacturers. Healthcare organizations take advantage of the durability and chemical resistance without sacrificing the look and feel of a space. From office spaces to storage facilities and hallways, polished concrete can be a single source solution for the hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, and healthcare providers.
Earn LEED Points
Sustainability has become a staple trend in construction. The move towards building greener, more energy efficient work places is a goal of new production and renovation design. One of the benefits of polished concrete is that it increases ambient light in a space. Concrete is also known to retain heat in the winter and keeps floors cooler in the warmer weather reducing the energy costs of a building. Polished concrete won’t release VOC vapors into the atmosphere and the durability and recyclable materials means that fewer replacements are required and materials can be subsequently repurposed. Many of these attributes can increase LEED points and provide a higher rating for the building.
Lower Maintenance Costs for Healthcare Flooring
When engineering a polished concrete solution for healthcare facilities, it is necessary to understand the impact that daily operations could have on a floor. This industry, in particular, requires a healthcare flooring system to have adequate chemical and biological resistance that protects against environmental contamination. A moisture resistant, seamless surface is also necessary to prevent bacterial growth. Moreover, polished concrete requires little in the way of daily maintenance. The glossy finish is impervious to foot and mobile furnishings, and regular cleanings require much less effort. Polished concrete can make the sanitization process easier in clean rooms and hygienic environments.
