Industry:

General Industry (GIND)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Regional Hospital - British Columbia, Canada.

 
 

Application Date:

February 2001

 
 

Application Situation:

Safety system required in hospital kitchen, dishwashing room, and hallway. Total area completed approximately 1,400 square feet.

 
 

Problem:

Hospital kitchen and dish washing areas were a constant safety problem because of wet floors. It was determined that the prevention of a single compensation claim would be more than sufficient to justify the cost of the complete application.

Belzona® 1321 (Ceramic S-Metal)

 

Substrate:

Terrazzo floor and light colored quarry tiles.

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-8.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

During an initial trial period, several safety flooring systems were tested. The Belzona System was voted the best by far by the hospital kitchen and dishroom staff. Three other hospitals and two extended care facilities with Belzona sytems (as well as several with competing systems) were consulted. Belzona was awarded the application contract.
