Healthcare/Long-Term Care Facility – Staff Lounge Flooring
Easy to Install
Employees visit the staff lounge while on breaks or to relax after a long shift. Flooring for this space should withstand
heavy foot traffic and resist scratches and scuffs. It also needs to stay looking like new longer since it’s in the back of
house and may not be replaced as often as flooring used in the front of house.
Armstrong recommends luxury vinyl tile, heterogeneous sheet, and LinoArt™ linoleum for this application. All products in these
categories provide excellent durability and scratch and scuff resistance.
Rejuvenations™ sheet performs well against abrasions, static loads, and staining. Natural Creations® floors feature a durable,
abrasion-resistant wear layer for years of good looks. Long-lasting LinoArt™ linoleum resists dirt build-up and reduces damage
The staff lounge, considered a “back of house” area, provides a comfortable space for employees to relax in a private setting.
Here, staff can enjoy some downtime, watching T.V., reading, or using a shared computer.
The design focus for this space is on comfort. Designers need to consider comfortable seating, appealing colors, and home-like
furnishings. Flooring should match this aesthetic – with designs that are non-institutional and actually look residential.
Staff lounges with this relaxing vibe promote a pleasant working atmosphere and may improve employee satisfaction.
Armstrong luxury vinyl tile, heterogeneous sheet, and LinoArt™ linoleum products can help achieve a non-institutional visual
Rejuvenations™ sheet floors offer natural stone and wood looks, as well as organic visuals inspired by homespun tweeds. You’ll
also find wood and stone patterns in Natural Creations® LVT, along with bold graphic, metal, and textile patterns in the Mystix®

Expect Armstrong to deliver fast and easy installation solutions for staff lounge flooring. Sheet floors can be installed
with new Flip™ Spray Adhesive. This system is a simple, one-step application process. Simply spray the adhesive, let it cure,
then install the flooring. In short order, the space is ready to be put back into use.

If a traditional sheet installation is preferred, use of the S-543 High-Moisture Adhesive reduces the wait time for installations.
Natural Creations® LVT with the I-Set™ Installation System is an easy solution that saves time and money. Planks and tiles
come packaged with the adhesive pre-applied. To install the flooring, remove the coated release paper on the back and press
the material into place.

Patient rooms need to be cleaned and disinfected easily to keep occupants safe and the space functional.
The staff lounge is in use at a long-term care facility around the clock, so it can’t be closed down for maintenance for extended
periods. Armstrong flooring products recommended for this space all offer low-maintenance options.
Heterogeneous sheet, LVT, and LinoArt™ linoleum will maintain their attractive looks with daily cleaning and damp mopping.
When periodic maintenance is required, machine-scrubbing with the appropriate scrubbing brush and spray buffing will revive
