Knoveo Hygiene Epoxy Flooring in Hospitals
Updated: Feb 22
There are thousands of moving parts of a hospital, and in choosing the the ideal hospital flooring system. Clinic offices, hallways, operating rooms, laboratories, and imaging rooms are in constant use. Hospital floors see heavy foot traffic, wheelchairs, hospital beds, carts, and machines twenty-four hours a day. Between the extensive square footage and the constant movement, it is crucial to have flooring that contributes to the successful operation of the facility.
Hospitals strive for a peaceful setting. There are many contributing factors to achieve that. Comfort is equally as important as the durability of your floor. Research shows that a visually pleasing environment helps increase patient satisfaction and relieve stress. A calming, welcoming aesthetic is essential for staff and patient morale. Sound absorption reduces noise, temperature control prevents cold air from rising from the floor, and resiliency provides a soft feel underfoot. Each of these adds to the life quality of professional staff and patients.
Hospitals Held to High Standards
Unlike other institutional settings, hospitals are held to high safety and sanitation standards to ensure the well-being of their patients. Strict health code requirements must be met to prevent the spread of disease, often including hygiene and infection control. Hospital flooring systems must be mobility-friendly, slip-resistant, and minimize or prevent the growth of mold and bacteria.

Epoxy Flooring - Epoxy is the most widely used flooring system in hospitals because it meets all of the specifications above. The most frequent accident in hospitals is slips and falls. Knoveo Epoxy Floors diminish this hazard by adding slip and skid-resistance. Epoxy floors offer UV-protection against color breakdown and deterioration. Knoveo Epoxy Floor also provides a germ-free setting, allowing hospitals to maintain sterility. Epoxy floor coatings perform well in operating and patient rooms, bathrooms, and common areas.
