Ultimate flooring solution

ONE of Ireland’s biggest hospitals has been refurbished with 35,000 square metres of Tarkett flooring.
Mater Misericordiae University Hospital in Dublin has been renovated with more than seven different types of Tarkett flooring, selected for use in the project which was overseen by the Sisk Group and project manager Pat Tierney.
Mr Tierney said: “Tarkett flooring was initially chosen for the project due to the commercial benefits it offered.
From start to finish the customer service and technical support we received from the company was excellent. I would definitely recommend using Tarkett again.”
Tarkett iQ Toro SC flooring was used in the 12 new operating theatres due to its static dissipative properties.
The flooring is made specifically for use in areas that need to remain free from static electricity and as well as being 100% recyclable, it boasts the best life cycle costs on the market.
Other products used in the development included Tarkett’s Linoleum Veneto xf and Etrusco xf in the corridors and ward bedrooms, non-slip Tarkett Safetred Universal used in the toilets and sluice rooms, and Tarkett Granit Multisafe in the en-suite bathrooms and wetrooms.
John Devine, Sales Director at Tarkett, said: “Tarkett has a broad range of impressive products designed specifically with health and aged care applications in mind.
By expertly engineering such a variety of products we’ve proudly become the go-to flooring manufacturer for this sector.
The products used come in a variety of colours and styles with enhanced performance characteristics and most can easily be applied for use in busy education, retail or leisure centres.”
The Mater hospital is more than 150 years old, has 600 beds and treats in excess of 210,000 outpatients a year. Work is expected to be completed by the end of June.
