Hospital corridors demand high performance floors. Foot traffic and rolling loads like equipment carts, stretchers, and wheelchairs,
put significant wear-and-tear on these floors. Corridor floors are also less likely to be replaced than other areas of the
hospital, so durability is critical.
Armstrong recommends a wide variety of flooring products to meet the needs of this application, including sheet, tile, and LVT options. You can depend on these floors to deliver scuff and scratch resistance and to maintain their beautiful looks for years.
A stay in a hospital can be stressful for both patients and their families. Flooring can actually play a role in reducing
stress by providing wayfinding paths throughout the facility. With themed patterns and vibrant colors, wayfinding paths on
the floor can help visitors identify different departments and service areas.
Armstrong offers a broad portfolio with colors, textures, and patterns coordinated to work together, making it easy to implement
a wayfinding path. For virtually any type of unique design, depend on Armstrong flooring solutions to deliver it beautifully.
Natural Creations® with the I-Set™ Installation System
The popular Natural Creations® LVT line now has a quick-install option. The new I-Set™ Installation System is designed exclusively
for Natural Creations® floors.
With the I-Set™ installation, each LVT plank or tile has an adhesive backing. There’s no need for full-spread adhesives. To
install the floor, remove the protective release paper and lay the flooring into place. With this “all-in-one” solution, LVT
installations can be completed in half the time, and the corridor can be returned to operation immediately.
Flip™ Spray Adhesive
LVT, VCT, and all sheet flooring products can be installed quickly and easily with new Flip™ Spray Adhesive. Another Armstrong
exclusive! Flip™ Spray Adhesive uses a three-step process: spray the adhesive, allow it to cure for 20-30 minutes, then install
the new corridor flooring. All that’s left is to move the furniture back into place, and the space is ready for foot traffic
and even heavy rolling loads.

LinoArt™ linoleum can be installed with our patented S-761 non-heat weld seaming system, which reduces costs and creates a
seamless design appearance.
Hospitals never shut down, so maintenance is always on-going. Keeping maintenance to a minimum in corridors helps ensure the
arteries of the hospital stay open for visitors and staff to move easily and safely throughout the facility.
Armstrong sheet products have a UV-cured urethane coating that allows for low maintenance cleaning. LinoArt™ linoleum with
NATURCote™ II reduces the amount of labor, water, and chemicals needed for routine maintenance.
