Vinyl flooring installed in hospital lounges, common areas, patient rooms and other environments seamlessly blends aesthetics with necessary functional characteristics. Flooring contractors depend on products and practices to achieve quality installations and to meet the quality needs of building planners, administrators and owners.

When it comes to resilient flooring, it is essential that the right adhesive is used to ensure that the flooring remains securely and evenly held in place. In the vinyl flooring category, there are many types of flooring, and new styles are regularly being introduced to meet modern design, traffic and maintenance requirements. Vinyl is still the “go-to” product for health care because of its minimal seams and cleaning properties.

Hospitals today specify vinyl flooring for a variety of spaces, and project timelines can be tight. During a hospital renovation, most commercial and public spaces must remain open. Therefore, there are more and more instances where environmentally friendly vinyl flooring installations must be done quickly – without cutting corners. Application efficiency and effectiveness become especially critical.

Proper preparation of the flooring surface is important to make sure there are no issues with moisture. TEC® LiquiDam and TEC® Liquidam EZ mitigate moisture and save installers time. Both products can be used on new concrete as little as 48 hours old and do not require shot blasting which saves installation time in tight schedules.

TEC® RollFast™ Vinyl Flooring Adhesive can help you install vinyl flooring efficiently and effectively. It is fast drying, accepts vinyl flooring in 10-15 minutes, and can be heat welded after just 60 minutes. It also has an extended open time of 6-8 hours. When you are faced with meeting challenging hospital timelines, TEC® RollFast™ can save you installation labor hours and meet your quality expectations.

Hospitals today need aesthetically pleasing floors that can stand up to 24/7 traffic and maintenance challenges. Luckily technological advances in the latest vinyl flooring and  installation products mean tough hospital requirements are more than met.
