Inside clinical labs, medical technicians handle a wide variety of specimens for analysis. Lab flooring for this application
has to be resistant to normal wear-and-tear, gouges from dropped instruments, and staining from chemical spills. The flooring
must also withstand a rigorous cleaning schedule.
Armstrong’s product offerings for this application include heterogeneous, homogeneous, and inlaid sheet flooring. All products
have a UV-cured coating which protects the floor’s appearance, giving it longer life.
Homogeneous and inlaid floors are constructed to provide excellent gouge and abrasion resistance. The DecorArt Sheet collection
offers enhanced stain, abrasion, and static load resistance.
Labs are located in the “back of house” within ambulatory centers or outpatient clinics. Flooring for these areas is typically
designed more for performance and long life than for aesthetics. But with Armstrong flooring, you don’t have to sacrifice
looks for performance.
Inlaid and Homogeneous Sheet
Inlaid sheet floors offer textile-inspired designs with over 50 choices in compatible patterns and colors. ColorArt Medintech
Sheet, ColorArt Medintone Sheet, and ColorArt Medley Sheet homogeneous sheet products have the familiar jaspé chip visual
in a range of neutrals and colors.
For a design approach that’s more soothing and home-like, the three lines in the DecorArt Sheet collection – Ambigu, StoneRun,
and TimberLine – may offer the perfect solution. This collection features organic homespun tweeds, beautiful stone and travertine
looks, and warm woods.
Armstrong sheet products are designed to be easy to install with our fast-acting adhesives. Inlaid, homogeneous, and heterogeneous
flooring products can be installed with S-543 High-Moisture Adhesive, which reduces installation wait time and gets the lab
back into operation quickly.
For non-aseptic areas, like labs, use of S-671 Seam Adhesive saves installation time and materials.
Flip™ Spray Adhesive
New Flip™ Spray Adhesive is another fast-acting adhesive that can be used with sheet installations. It’s designed for spaces
demanding quick room renovations.

The resilient flooring products recommended for outpatient clinic labs all offer no polish – low maintenance options.
For daily maintenance, only sweeping or vacuuming and damp mopping is necessary. For periodic maintenance, spray buffing will
keep these floors looking beautiful. Other options include dry buffing for homogeneous and inlaid vinyl sheet, or no buffing
at all for DecorArt Sheet. Simply machine-scrub when needed and rinse.
These easy maintenance options will help keep these floors looking newer longer.
