SelecTech, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of innovative flooring products with long-term value and immediate benefits, recently announced the launch of a new healthcare division to better serve hospital, medical practice, urgent care center and temporary medical clinic clients.
“Different areas of a hospital, healthcare facility or temporary clinic during the current coronavirus crisis have different needs. For example, the flooring in an MRI room has different requirements than that of a waiting room. Many hospitals and medical centers have clean rooms and labs onsite and those also have special considerations,” said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc. “The new division will provide specialized flooring products and services to address the special needs of hospitals and healthcare centers, as well as temporary coronavirus testing clinics.”
Those special offerings include SelecTech’s FreeStyle flooring line includes FreeStyle BioLock, an interlocking flooring product customized for use in hospitals, cleanrooms and labs. Ideal for renovation projects, BioLock eliminates the need for costly floor replacement and downtime. BioLock utilizes a water-proof seam sealer that makes tiles liquid-tight but still removable and replaceable. This is a critical feature when you consider that some labs might be using chemicals that could be damaging if spilled and seeps into flooring. This is particularly important to protect the wiring and plumbing that are often underneath a lab’s floor.
Additionally, most medical centers and hospitals house data centers with expensive computer equipment and servers. SelecTech’s StaticStop ESD flooring products are used by a number of facilities with more expensive electronics to reduce static electricity discharge. Those products also utilize interlocking technology for easy installation, maintenance and portability.
“A number of the facilities we’ve worked with over the years use access flooring. This type of floor provides some flexibility should the facility need to accommodate growth or transfigurations. Our interlocking flooring—available in both FreeStyle and StaticStop lines--can be moved from one location to another and easily reinstalled,” said Ricciardelli.
Made with 70 percent recycled materials and 100 percent recyclable, SelecTech flooring products meet CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.
