Any type of elements that are to be added to a hospital’s infrastructure must guarantee certain parameters that, in addition to their effectiveness, provide health and safety for patients and medical staff.
Particularly, the floors and walls of a hospital must meet the required and established conditions by regulatory bodies.
Asepsis is one of the most important aspects when choosing a suitable conductive floor. This applies to healthcare centers, clinics, and hospitals alike.
Furthermore, the cleaning and maintenance of conductive floors are crucial for their upkeep and the safety of patients and medical personnel.
Among the numerous benefits offered by conductive floors, ease of cleaning stands out; they are moisture-resistant, easy to care for, and have a uniform texture that helps prevent accidents in sensitive areas of the hospital.
Here are some of the benefits of installing conductive floors in the healthcare sector:
Ease of Cleaning: Surgical rooms and examination areas, among other high-traffic zones, have a higher likelihood of harboring bacteria and other microorganisms. Therefore, conductive vinyl floors (Vinyl, on its own, possesses antibacterial properties) are easy to clean and disinfect, which is essential for maintaining hygiene in these areas.
Anti-slip Properties: To prevent accidents during daily emergencies, it’s important to install floors that offer effective and secure grip for medical equipment and patients. Conductive floors come with anti-slip features that facilitate movement within the hospital environment.
Resistance and Durability: The materials used to make conductive floors provide them with physical properties that make them resistant to impacts, scratches, and moisture. This makes maintenance faster and more cost-effective, rendering them an excellent option for withstanding the constant use of medical equipment, accidental utensil drops, and liquid presence in the rooms where they are installed.
Aesthetics: Apart from fulfilling the primary needs of a healthcare center, conductive vinyl floors offer a pleasing aesthetic that easily adapts to any style and design. Therefore, they are highly useful for small healthcare centers or clinics as well as large hospitals.
Area Demarcation: Conductive floors offer a wide range of designs that allow for the demarcation of hospital areas with specific colors, styles, and shapes. This not only aligns with the place’s style but also helps define areas based on their use. This demarcation can be easily achieved using decorative strips or by combining different tile colors.
Electrical Conductivity: Conductive floors prevent potential electrical discharges caused by static electricity by acting as discharge electrodes and dissipating static charges in hospital areas. Hence, they strategically route electrostatic charges away from people and other sensitive medical equipment that could be damaged, minimizing explosion risks due to malfunctions.
Conductive floors are designed to meet all the healthcare sector’s needs and are an excellent choice for clinical and hospital centers.
