Pharmaceutical and Healthcare
The post-mortem room at Luton and Dunstable Hospital was in need of refurbishment. The existing vinyl was worn due to insufficient falls in the substrate and water was pooling, presenting a slip hazard. The hospital was looking for a hardwearing flooring solution that was hygienic and slip-resistant under wet conditions. The project needed to be completed within tight timescales.
Following a consultation, it was agreed that the existing floor finish had to be removed to allow RESYN to create falls to the drains. The falls were formed using Degafloor 50/51, a quick curing screed that allowed the installation of the Degafloor FB system to be completed subsequently. Another option discussed was the installation of a polymer screed; however, this would have required 3 days to cure before allowing the remainder of the installation to continue.
The Degafloor FB system is seamless and impervious, providing an extremely hygienic solution that leaves nowhere for bacteria to breed. The installation was complemented with a seamless coved skirting at 200mm installed to the white rock walling, helping to maintain a more sterile environment. The system not only offers outstanding slip resistance but also exceptional durability to withstand frequent cleaning regimes.
RESYN worked closely with the hospital and the builders working on the refurbishment to complete the installation with minimal disruption. The whole installation took just 2 days.
Louise McDonald from Luton and Dunstable Hospital commented, “RESYN gave us the best solution & advice to resolve our problems. The Post Mortem Room was closed for four weeks for refurbishments & staff from RESYN had to fit into our tight time schedule. The project was fully completed within our agreed dates & all issues relating to the existing floor were removed by our external governance bodies. The staff are very pleased with the resulting improvements to safety, the floor’s appearance & ease with which it can be cleaned.”
