Gerflor provides protection in healthcare and care homes environments

Gerflor’s flooring and surface protection solutions provide a unique and comprehensive offer for both new build and refurbishment projects. The Gerflor product range includes SPM wall protection and handrails that are ideal for healthcare and care home environments. The products enable pleasing aesthetics to be matched with high levels of hygiene, exceptionally easy maintenance and long-term good looks.

SPM offers a comprehensive range of wall and door protection, corner protectors and handrails in an extensive palette of finishes. Protective panels include Decochoc, for large walls and surfaces, and Decowood, a wood effect sheet which combines wall protection and handrails with the warmth of wood. For a more original look, Decotrend panels uplift and highlight interiors with impressive visual effects: a shaped perspective view with Composite and the striking appearance of Brushed Aluminum.

Gerflor SPM handrails are designed to protect against hand-borne infections while being ergonomic and providing a good grip. The Escort range of round handrails has an innovative bactericidal joint and includes elegant wood effect and aluminum finishes or the option of a PVC sheath. These coordinate with a specially developed range of corner protectors that resist impact and the effects of cleaning and disinfectant products.

Complementing the SPM portfolio is Gerflor’s extensive range of vinyl flooring which suits virtually every environment, from receptions and corridors to bedrooms, showers and intensive care. The range includes Mipolam Symbioz, Creation Clic System, Taralay Premium, Tarasafe and Insight. Total shower systems are also available.

New Century Care Group’s Buxton Lodge care home has Gerflor’s vinyl flooring and wall protection systems throughout the care home. For New Century Care, the advantages of using Gerflor for all its vinyl flooring and wall protection are considerable when it comes to costs and efficiencies.

The residents’ bedrooms feature Taralay Impression Comfort in Bamboo Tea while the en-suites off the bedrooms and the wetrooms have been finished with Taradouche Elegance SD in cactus. The dining rooms and other public areas feature Nera Contract Wood Wengue Safari. Tarasafe™ safety flooring in magnesium and copper from the Elements range was specified for back-of-house areas and ramps. Then Gerflor’s SPM brand Decosheet wall protection and Escort 40 handrails have been used in the main circulation areas.

Craig Prior, director of business development, New Century Care Group, comments: “Gerflor offers an excellent product range which fits our needs in terms of safety and infection control while the many different colours available match our decorative schemes. The products tick all the boxes and we’re happy with the way they’re performing, especially as we don’t have to maintain and repaint the corridors every five minutes.”
