As part of a £13.8million redevelopment project, West Lane Hospital is refurbishing the Westwood Unit to create a new 14 bed assessment and treatment facility, with the aim of providing a more welcoming environment and comfortable hospital experience.

The NHS Foundation Trust worked closely with patients to develop a facility that will have as homely a feel as possible and has specified Tarkett’s Tapiflex Excellence 65 in Natural Oak for flooring throughout the unit.

Moving away from the traditional institutional look but without compromising on any of the hard-wearing qualities needed, Tapiflex Excellence 65 vinyl flooring is made with a transparent 0.65mm wear layer. This makes it resistant to indentation, abrasion and tearing.

It also cleans easily thanks to its added TopClean XP PUR surface treatment and its high-density acoustic backing significantly reduces noise with a performance rating of -19dB -.

To speed up recovery times, patients need to feel as calm and relaxed as possible. A noisy floor acts as a disturbance so an acoustic floor that reduces noise was a must. Furthermore, the option for underfloor heating made it the perfect choice.

Available in more than 100 colours and 13 designs, Tarkett’s Excellence 65 is a popular choice for architects and specifiers in health and aged care sectors.
