Marmoleum in Healthcare

Marmoleum for healthcare environments

Marmoleum is chosen as the desired flooring solution for healthcare and cure environments to date. Hospitals, private clinics, senior care facilities and assisted living environments all benefit from using Marmoleum as a hygienic floor covering solution that is easy to clean and maintain as well as durable, safe and comfortable for both wheeled and foot traffic.

When it comes to infection control and stopping Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs), what better place to start than from the flooring up? Marmoleum products are proven to inhibit the growth and spread of infections such as MRSA, Norovirus and C Difficile, helping to contribute to a healthier and more hygienic environment in any area of a hospital.

✔ Infection control
✔ Phthalates free
✔ Prevent the growth of bacteria

✔ Allergy approved
✔ Low emission
✔ Combinable with other flooring types

Infection control

Marmoleum's ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria stems from the natural raw materials that go into its production, specifically linseed oil. An inherent property of the product, the anti-bacterial qualities of Marmoleum won't diminish over time, giving peace of mind and constant protection from the moment it is installed.

Independent testing by the University of Glasgow has proven that Marmoleum has a unique suitability for a diverse range of environments where hygiene and control of bacteria such as MRSA or E. coli is an everyday concern.

Marmoleum Health

"Most MRSA infections occur in people who've been in hospitals or other healthcare settings."

Phthalates free

Phthalates are a family of chemical compounds primarily used to make polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or vinyl flexible and pliant. The phthalates widely selected to soften vinyl are used because of their strong performance, durability and stability. Because they are used to soften vinyl and make it flexible, in these applications they are called “plasticizers.”

Exposure to some kind of phthalates has been linked to the rise in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Created from natural, renewable materials, Marmoleum flooring is the most sustainable resilient flooring available. It contains no phthalates, no plasticizers and no mineral oil.

Naturally prevent the growth of bacteria

While the larger problems of bacterial infestation and indoor environmental health may not lend themselves to quick, easy solutions some steps can create an immediate improvement. A good first move is to replace products that add to the problem with ones that reduce the risk naturally.

Marmoleum is made of natural ingredients that resist microbial growth by their very nature. Thanks to the natural raw materials that go into the production, specifically flax seed oil, Marmoleum gets its ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria stems. An inherent property of the product, the anti-bacterial qualities of Marmoleum won't diminish over time, giving peace of mind and constant protection from the moment it is installed.

Independent tests prove that MRSA and staphylococcus aureus do not multiply on Marmoleum.
