Polyflor safety flooring helps to improve acoustics in GP surgery
High performance Polyflor vinyl flooring designed to provide dual sustainable slip resistance and improved acoustic performance within a building was recently installed at Downing Drive Surgery in Evington, Leicester.
Designed by BRP Architects of Market Harborough, the refurbished doctors’ surgery features Polysafe safety flooring installed by Excelsior Carpets and Flooring Contractors Ltd, under main contractors Oakwood Construction. Polysafe Wood fx Acoustix PUR in American Oak was fitted in the surgery’s reception and circulation areas whilst Polysafe Standard PUR in Ash Grey was fitted in all the consulting rooms.
Lee Hankins from BRP Architects commented, “We needed a hardwearing, slip resistant and easy to maintain floorcovering to cope with the demands of this GP’s surgery which services 6,900 patients in the local area. The acoustic properties of the Polysafe Wood fx Acoustix collection is an added benefit as it helps reduce the transfer of impact sound and walking noise through the building, helping to create a more peaceful environment for patients and staff alike.”
