No joints: fewer germ nests, simplified cleaning
Floors in hospitals or medical practices are usually made of PVC, rubber or linoleum. The material comes in sheets or tiles and is laid on site. To meet the increased hygiene requirements, the seams are fused. After prolonged use, however, the fused seams can crack. The hospital beds wheeled over the floor and other heavy traffic mean that, over the long run, the cracking is unavoidable. Moisture then penetrates through the cracks and pools under the tiles or sheets. These pools create ideal conditions for germs, which even the most thorough cleaning cannot get at. Conifloor coverings handle the problem differently. The components are mixed on site and laid on as a liquid. The seamless covering created is bound directly to the substrate. The system prevents gaps or cavities from forming and allowing germs to get a foothold. Enduringly robust and seamless, the floor keeps the germs out throughout its entire service life.
