Dolphins play in new baby unit

Frolicking dolphins provide colourful features in corridor floors at the new neo-natal unit at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan, Lancashire.

Created via the Polyflor Expressions Design Service, which uses computerised water jet cutting techniques to produce precise shapes and styles for inlaid decoration, the motifs incorporate a variety of colours from Polyflor’s lower maintenance Mystique PUR, Prestige PUR and Polysafe Astral heavy duty and safety sheet vinyl floorcoverings.

Non-directionally patterned Polyflor Mystique PUR and Prestige PUR feature a high quality polyurethane reinforcement which, combined with a superior closed surface finish, facilitates a low cost, polish-free maintenance regime for the lifetime of the floorcovering, providing savings of up to 48% compared with untreated vinyl floorcoverings.

Polysafe Astral safety flooring features the Supratec system, a unique soil-releasing polymer which makes the flooring up to 60% cheaper to clean and ensures that even light shades will retain their original appearance and will not yellow even after years of wear.

All meet the general performance requirements of EN 649:1996 and, fully tested to fire safety standard EN 13501-1, are certified as Class Bfl-S1, achieving the criteria EN ISO 9239-1 ? 8kw/m2 and the mandatory requirement of EN ISO 11925-2 pass.

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