Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool

Contractor: PCS
Type of works: supply and installation of Polyflor Mystique PUR polish-free heavy-duty sheet vinyl floorcoverings and Polysafe Astral sheet vinyl safety flooring.

Around 20,000m2 of bright, attractive colours from the Polyflor Mystique PUR range of polish-free heavy-duty sheet vinyl floorcoverings has been installed throughout the new-build Broadgreen Hospital and Cardiothoracic Centre in Liverpool. Flooring contractor PCS also fitted Polysafe Astral sheet vinyl safety flooring in scrub-up areas, toilets and washrooms at the hospital.

Polyflor Mystique PUR provides a balanced choice of 16 decorative shades and the Polysafe Astral palette offers 14 lively colours, each offering multi-flake decoration.

For easier cleanability and maintenance cost savings, Mystique PUR features a polyurethane reinforcement to provide enhanced protection and facilitate a lifelong polish-free maintenance regime for overall cleaning cost savings of up to 48%. The product also achieves the highest possible A rating under the BRE Green Guide to Specification scheme.

Polysafe Astral incorporates Supratec+, the second generation of Polyflor’s soil-releasing polymer system, including polyurethane for reduced dirt pick-up, even easier maintenance and life-cycle cost savings of up to 60%. As well as meeting the performance requirements of BS EN 13845, the range conforms to HSE guidelines, achieving a sustainable slip-resistance value of >36 on the RRL Pendulum wet test (using Four S rubber) and a surface roughness of Rtm >20µm.

Both Polysafe Astral and Polyflor Mystique PUR have been independently tested and results demonstrate that they inhibit the growth of MRSA on the flooring. An effective cleaning regime is, however, the most important defence against infection.

Both are fully tested to fire safety standard BS EN 13501-1, and certified as Class Bfl-S1, achieving the criteria EN ISO 9239-1 >8kw/m² and the mandatory requirement of BS EN ISO 11925-2 pass.
