The PVCMed Alliance has published a richly illustrated booklet entitled “Vinyl in Hospitals” together with VinylPlus and sponsored by Tarkett, Forbo and Altro (flooring manufacturers). The 50-page booklet contains many examples of how vinyl coverings are contributing to hygienic, aesthetical, economic and environmentally friendly hospital environments all over the world.
Since vinyl is workable, durable, easy to clean and resistant to bacteria, super hospitals and vinyl are an excellent match. “Vinyl in Hospitals” explains how vinyl offers architects an almost infinite range of design possibilities while offering high hygienic properties.
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control estimates that healthcare-associated infections cause approximately 37,000 deaths every year in Europe. Vinyl’s smooth and stain-resistant surface structure reduces the risk of multiplication of microbes, thereby minimising the risk of infections.
“Vinyl in Hospitals” also deals with sustainability and the many environmental improvements made by the industry during the last decades.
