Built in 1951, the Anderson County Hospital was in need of an upgrade. In order to offer the best medical care for the community, they installed the latest technology in their new 25-bed critical care facility, along with some other upgrades that might not come to mind when thinking of healthcare. Floors in operating rooms must be sterile, easily washable, durable and hold up to stains from body fluids and harsh cleaners. A seamless floor is also a must in this environment.
Our decorative quartz epoxy coating system with antimicrobial additive met all the hospital requirements and then some. The coating was installed with integral base and up walls in the shower areas.
Resistant to chipping, gouging, and pitting, these floors and walls are extremely hardwearing. The 8” integral cove base around perimeter keeps everything in the space so that nothing leaves the room. What’s more, with a seamless coating there is nowhere for bacteria to hide or mold to grow, making the operating room a breeze to clean and sterilize. We also played a key role in the hospital kitchen where we installed a seamless epoxy floor, and added texture to the topcoat for a slip-resistant finish.
