The implementation of an effective cleaning regime is the most important defence against infection. According to IS0 22196, selected Gerflor floor coverings inhibit the growth of bacteria’s such as E.coli and MRSA.

 

Ease of Maintenance with Surface Treatments

Protecsol®2 and EvercareTM are a new generation of surface treatments.

Highly Durable: Exclusive surface treatment applied by UV laser cross-linking provides superior durability and an even surface thickness, creating an impenetrable barrier against stains and chemicals found in healthcare.

The surface treatment creates a 100% non-porous barrier to all liquids and chemicals, keeping all stains floating on the surface. This helps with simple and easy stain removal as nothing can get into the surface of our treated flooring.
