The company explains that its flooring and interior finishing solutions are treated with patented surface treatments that ‘provide an unrivalled level of chemical and stain resistance’. Gerflor said: “The world-class vinyl and linoleum collections are perfectly suited to hard-working healthcare spaces, including those subject to intensive 24-hour movement of beds, trolleys, wheelchairs, and heavy medical equipment.”
Gradus, meanwhile, is a manufacturer of ‘comprehensive contract interior solutions’ – including stair edgings, floor trims, barrier matting, and wall protection. Gradus solutions are reportedly ‘proven to enhance the longevity of a building, while reducing long-term maintenance costs’. It works ‘in partnership’ with the healthcare sector ‘to ensure that buildings are safe and accessible for all users’.
Whitby Hospital is a community hospital that provides inpatient, outpatient, and community services. Medical Architecture has overseen and masterminded the major redevelopment project there. Gerflor explained: “The newly configured community hospital – which Medical Architecture designed – bridges the gap between home and specialist hospital care, through the delivery of both outpatient and inpatient services in Whitby.”
