Circles theme for scanner suite

Colourful concentric circles and solid spheres are featured in the flooring of the reception and waiting areas at North Devon District Hospital’s new MRI scanner suite.

Using a selection of non-directional shades from low maintenance Polyflor Prestige PUR heavy duty sheet vinyl flooring – from commercial flooring specialist and Contract Flooring Association Manufacturer of the Year Polyflor Ltd – the inset decoration was created via the Polyflor Expressions Design Service, which uses computerised water jet cutting techniques to produce a variety of precise shapes and styles.

Barnstaple-based North Devon Flooring installed the flooring.

Featuring an innovative decorative appearance created by combining duotone base chips with two tonal highlight chips for a brighter, cleaner, fresher appearance, Polyflor Prestige PUR is ideally suited to busy health care, educational and commercial environments.

Polyflor Prestige PUR offers a choice of 16 bright, modern shades and features a high quality polyurethane reinforcement which, combined with a superior closed surface finish, can cut maintenance costs by up to 48% by facilitating a low cost, polish-free cleaning regime for the lifetime of the flooring.

Polyflor Prestige PUR meets the general performance requirements of EN 649 and, fully tested to fire safety standard EN 13501-1, is certified as Class Bfl-S1, achieving the criteria EN ISO 9239-1  8kw/m2 and the mandatory requirement of EN ISO 11925-2 pass. The flooring also features homogeneous monolayer construction for even wear and 100% useful life.

In common with all Polyflor sheet vinyls, Polyflor Prestige PUR can be welded at the seams and to coved skirtings to create continuous impervious surfaces which offer no sanctuary to dirt and bacteria.
