Our world today is fast paced with meetings, deadlines, family and everything in between filling up the day. Visits to see the doctor in retail clinics, outpatient facilities and other ambulatory care need to be quick and easy, and Armstrong Flooring believes flooring should be the same. Care centers are in a period of high growth and rapid change and as a result, interior designs are flexible to adapt to shifting care processes and protocols. The versatile and quick to install Armstrong Flooring portfolio is designed to meet the high traffic and easy maintenance needs of these evolving places.
Fast changing outpatient environments like retail and urgent care centers may be updated every two years. As a result, flexibility and adaptability in interior design are critical. Armstrong Flooring offers:
Exam rooms are busy spaces where doctors receive patients and perform minor surgical, medical and diagnostic procedures. Flooring must uphold against the wear-and-tear of foot traffic and rolling equipment carts, as well as contribute to a sterile environment.
While the design focus for outpatient operating room flooring is on infection control, it does not mean performance attributes takes priority over design options. Many of our sheet product lines are designed to cross-coordinate, giving you even more design flexibility.
Nurses’ station can be both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Armstrong Flooring’s product lines of high performing, harmonious colors and coordinating flooring can have an immediate impact on employee morale and satisfaction.
Inside clinical labs, medical technicians handle a wide variety of specimens for analysis. Lab flooring for this application has to be resistant to normal wear-and-tear, gouges from dropped instruments and staining from chemical spills all while withstanding a rigorous cleaning schedule.
A typical retail clinic or outpatient center has a large variety of rooms- from waiting areas and exams rooms to procedure and nurses’ stations. Wayfinding using flooring can reduce confusion for new patients by visibly showing how spaces are connected.
The staff lounge provides a comfortable space for employees to relax and unwind in a private setting whether that is watching TV, reading, utilizing a shared computer or eating a snack. Lounges with this relaxing vibe promote a pleasant working atmosphere and improve employee satisfaction.
Elevators face heavy daily usage from foot traffic and rolling beds, wheelchairs and medical equipment not to mention the random spills that occur. Elevator flooring must be wear-resistant to scuffs and scratches and long-lasting, and easily maintained and replaceable.
Healthcare restroom floors must offer strength, durability and aseptic properties. Armstrong Flooring has you covered with flexible slip-resistant design options while resisting gouges, abrasions and stains. The non-porous surface of vinyl sheet prohibits dirt and bacteria from getting trapped and also holds up to the frequent use of commercial strength cleaning products.
