Walsall wards get Forest feeling

Sophisticated and highly realistic wood effect sheet vinyl flooring from Polyflor’s innovative Forest FX range has been installed in corridors and wards at Walsall Manor Hospital’s new Starling Unit for cardiac and cataract patients.

The flooring was fitted by Warley-based flooring contractors John Davis Interiors who also installed Polyflor Finesse EC electrostatic conductive flooring in the unit’s operating theatres. Main contractor was Interserve Project Services.

Developed in response to demand from specifiers and designers for a wood effect sheet vinyl, Forest FX is targeted primarily at the healthcare, education and high street sectors, but its outstanding appearance and performance characteristics are seen as appealing to the broad commercial market.

The collection features 14 of the most widely specified wood colours, including oak, beech, maple and cherry as well as teak, walnut, mahogany and cocobolo.

With a 0.7mm wearlayer, Forest FX has excellent durability and is ideally suited to high traffic commercial applications. The range also features a polyurethane reinforcement (PUR), which protects the floor during installation and handover and facilitates a polish-free maintenance regime, achieving maintenance cost savings of up to 48%

Quick and easy to install, Polyflor Forest FX can be welded at the seams to provide a hygienic surface, offering no sanctuary to dirt and bacteria, and is available in 20mx2m rolls, providing the flexibility to cover large flooring areas swiftly.

Polyflor Finesse EC meets all relevant international electrostatic conductive performance standards and the general performance requirements of EN 649. Providing a choice of five attractive, non-directional colourways, Polyflor Finesse EC is available in 2mm gauge in 2m wide sheet or standard 608mmx608mm access floor panel size tiles.
