Installation: Haemodialysis Clinic, Mangere (Diaverum Clinic)
Architect: Collard Maxwell Architects - NSW
Installer: Crown FlooringXtra
Product: Marmoleum & Surestep Wood
The project was installed in anuary 2016 and officially opened 2 February 2016. It has a special place within INZIDE as we sponsor the Kidney Society. They asked for a handup not a hand out and said that they wanted to link with INZIDE as we were strong on recycling and they see recycling of body parts as a core part of their business. How could we refuse.
Back to the installation though. The key requirement was fitness for purpose and being a health centre – having an anti-microbial built into the flooring system.
Tick and tick. Marmoleum is the best product for a health centre as proved by the millions of m2 of marmoleum installed in health centres around the world.
97% natural raw ingredients (the remaining non-natural) is the top shield surface to ensure really easy cleaning) – the most sustainable flooring product in the WORLD!!
72% of the ingredients are naturally renewable
43% of the product is recycled natural ingredients
Naturally healthy and able to fight MRSA and many other microbes (Linseed oil is naturally anti-microbial)
So easy to work with (over 20,000,000m2 is installed every year around the world) And yes it is in the White House and the Kremlin.
15 year true performance warranty
Able to handle heavy rolling loads – look at the weight of those dialysis beds.
The safety vinyl was a key requirement given the liquids used in these facilities. It is only FORBO (supplied by INZIDE in NZ) that has a range of wood look sheet safety vinyls.
Job done. Brilliant project to be involved with.
