Laboratories and medical testing centers are important spaces where precise testing and analysis take place. To ensure accurate results and the safety of employees, it is crucial to maintain a contaminant-free environment.
While many factors contribute to this goal, the choice of flooring material plays a significant role. Everlast® Epoxy provides epoxy floors for laboratories that help to maintain a safe environment and the accuracy of scientific processes.
No place for microorganisms to hide
Epoxy resin floors offer a seamless and non-porous surface, leaving no room for contaminants to hide.
Unlike traditional flooring materials, such as tiles with joints or grout lines, epoxy resin creates a smooth and continuous surface. This eliminates crevices and cracks where dirt, debris, or harmful microorganisms could thrive, ensuring the floors are kept hygienic and easier to clean.
Everlast® Epoxy floors also contain an integral EPA-registered antimicrobial component that provides long-term flooring protection against germs and odor-causing bacteria. Unlike many resin surfaces which only have an antimicrobial top coat, ours is dispersed throughout the flooring system to help safeguard against bacteria that could compromise the laboratory environment.
Excellent chemical resistance
Laboratories and medical testing centers often handle a wide range of chemicals, some of which can be corrosive or hazardous.
Everlast® Epoxy resin floors have excellent chemical resistance, protecting the underlying substrate and preventing chemical spills from seeping into the flooring material.
This resistance helps maintain a safe and contaminant-free environment, minimizing the risk of cross-contamination and ensuring the longevity of the laboratory floor.
Easy maintenance routine
A spotless laboratory is essential and an epoxy floor facilitates easy cleaning and maintenance routines.
The seamless surface allows for a thorough clean, as contaminants cannot penetrate into the flooring and cause damage to the surface and substrate.
Maintenance is a breeze as regular cleaning with detergents or disinfectants effectively removes any spills and debris to help maintain a sterile environment.
Resistant to moisture
Moisture and dampness create a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and bacteria, which could have a detrimental effect on important lab work.
Epoxy resin floors are resistant to moisture, preventing water absorption, something that is particularly important in environments where water-based experiments are conducted.
Long-lasting flooring systems
Busy laboratories are subject to heavy foot traffic, equipment movement, and potential impact.
Everlast® Epoxy resin floors are renowned for their longevity and ability to withstand heavy use - without developing unsightly wear paths, cracks, or gouging. This durability reduces the need for frequent repairs or replacements, contributing to cost-effectiveness and minimizing downtime in the facility.
A safe environment to work in
The correct safety measures in laboratories are essential for maintaining a healthy and secure working environment.
Everlast® Floor has a textured finish and is made using small natural marble stones. This textured finish creates slip-resistant flooring to reduce the risk of accidents in the workplace - and also to minimize costly lawsuits resulting from trips and falls.
