Avon, MA – SelecTech, Inc. recently announced the launch of a new healthcare division to better serve hospital, medical practice, urgent care center and temporary medical clinic clients.
“Different areas of a hospital, healthcare facility or temporary clinic during the current coronavirus crisis have different needs. For example, the flooring in an MRI room has different requirements than that of a waiting room. Many hospitals and medical centers have clean rooms and labs on-site and those also have special considerations,” said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc. “The new division will provide specialized flooring products and services to address the special needs of hospitals and healthcare centers, as well as temporary coronavirus testing clinics.”
Those special offerings include SelecTech’s FreeStyle flooring line includes FreeStyle BioLock, an interlocking flooring product customized for use in hospitals, cleanrooms and labs. Ideal for renovation projects, BioLock eliminates the need for costly floor replacement and downtime. BioLock utilizes a water-proof seam sealer that makes tiles liquid-tight but still removable and replaceable. This is a critical feature when you consider that some labs might be using chemicals that could be damaging if they are spilled and seep into flooring. This is particularly important to protect the wiring and plumbing that are often underneath a lab’s floor.
Additionally, most medical centers and hospitals house data centers with expensive computer equipment and servers. SelecTech’s StaticStop ESD flooring products are used by a number of facilities with more expensive electronics to reduce static electricity discharge. Those products also utilize interlocking technology for easy installation, maintenance and portability.
