As a true healthcare multi-specialist Gerflor has more than 60 years’ experience and has developed to become an expert in this field. It manufactures and markets innovative, decorative, durable, hygienic and environmentally responsible flooring for a host of healthcare-related solutions.

Gerflor’s high-performing Mipolam ranges come in a sheet format, a homogeneous flooring that is highly suitable for heavy duty traffic. Mipolam Esprit, Elegance and Symbioz have a group T wear rating and, with innovative non-directional designs, they are a popular choice in many sectors where hygiene must be maintained.

By combining the Mipolam range with its patented Evercare surface treatment, Gerflor has delivered a product that has unparalleled stain resistance to blood and chemicals (including iodine), the best slip resistance in its field, astonishingly low maintenance and unique environmental credentials.

Gerflor’s Evercare surface treatment ensures no wax for life and its bacterio-static and fungi-static properties ensure increased levels of hygiene. It is also 100% recyclable.

The slip resistance performance with use of Evercare surface treatment across the Mipolam range through independent testing SATRA established that the flooring performed to in excess of ≥36 (wet) on the pendulum test, giving low potential for slips.

As an added benefit, Gerflor’s Mipolam Biocontrol is specially engineered to help life science manufacturers meet the technical regulatory requirements for clean room environments. Mipolam Biocontrol is nonporous, slip-resistant, abrasion-resistant, and easy to clean. It meets all ISO requirements for use in clean room environments, including GMP Class A.

Mipolam can be specified in general public areas, schools, offices, computer suites, indoor leisure centres, factory floors and storage areas, together with hospital wards, corridors and cleanrooms requiring an aseptic environment. Mipolam provides a versatile solution for both refurbishments and new build projects.

Mipolam Symbioz has been installed at Circle Hospital, Reading.

Robert Botwright, head of procurement for Circle Partnership commented: 'Mipolam Symbioz is a good looking product and we carried out some tests with chemicals commonly found in hospitals to make sure it worked, as stain removal can be an issue in hospitals, particularly in operating theatres.'
