offerings and learn how these natural, timeless designs
can bring sophistication to your space.
The medical industry — whether it’s hospitals, laboratories, rehabilitation facilities, dentists and doctor’s offices or clinics — has at least one requirement in common: quality, healthcare flooring. In an industry where every physical aspect must be mindfully selected both for utility and aesthetics, the right healthcare flooring choice is essential.
Quality healthcare flooring is not only about utility — its functionality includes how aesthetics make a person feel. Waiting rooms and lobbies should feel comfortable and home-like. Make a lasting first impression with Parterre engineered hardwood flooring in the lobby and select complementary colors and tones from any of our LVT collections, such as InGrained and Vertu, for patient rooms. Plus, the designs and colors of our products can help reduce the stress of long hours and sometimes adverse circumstances that require extended stays.
With many facilities requiring around-the-clock foot and machine traffic, proper healthcare flooring is essential, which is why we design our products to withstand heavy use. And if repair is required, we craft our products with easy maintenance in mind.
Factors such as cleanability, safety, ease of use, comfort when standing and walking — as many healthcare providers do all day — are all assets. When it comes to healthcare flooring, hygiene is of the utmost importance. Parterre floors are sanitary, easy to clean and require minimal maintenance.
Not only are our healthcare flooring products durable, comfortable, safe and sanitary, they bring value to a project. Engineered hardwood is treasured all over the world because it is a natural element, and since it’s from nature, it can provide comfort to those in an healthcare environment.
“When you flipped it open, it had numerous products that fit this build. The feathered-wood look fit exactly what we were trying to do.” [Talking about the selection of plank floor products found in one of Parterre’s architects folders for its Vertu Luxury Vinyl Plank collection.]
“The flooring had to be easy to maintain, especially in the clinical areas where the stone tile was used. To avoid slips and falls, the flooring could not be completely smooth, but it had to be easy to mop and buff. The texture and monolithic pattern of the Parterre stone tiles help hide seams and soiling. We were also able to support environmental objectives by using non-wax products that help the facility reduce the amount of water used in cleaning the floor.”
“The two main areas where Parterre was used are very high-traffic areas, with dozens of kids going through there in the course of a day. The flooring we used had to be a product geared toward high-traffic commercial areas that we knew would hold up. I’ve used Parterre for years in other healthcare facilities. I know it holds up.”
“Parterre allowed us to have a more hospitality look and feel to the space and it helped us to reflect the upgraded services that this practice offers. It really helps set them apart from their competitors.”
“We also liked that the Parterre flooring is easy to repair, if needed, by simply pulling up one strip of the plank or one tile and replacing it with a new piece. From the specifying process, through to installation and now maintenance, Parterre Flooring has really worked out well for the Giles Hospital.”
“We looked at options provided by a few other manufacturers, but we selected the Parterre product because of how it looked and felt within the space.”
“The selection of Parterre Flooring was a combination of both design and function, as well as affordable cost. Our focus was on creating a peaceful and inviting environment since evidence shows it allows for faster healing for patients and reduced stress for employees. Parterre flooring offered a very soothing feel, and the soft khaki greens of the stone tile provided a natural look that’s similar to the incredible views seen from the hospital windows.”
“We chose Parterre for its performance and color. Even though it’s in the heart of the hospital, the Family Resource Center needed to feel more like a residence. The wood-flooring look makes it seem like a home setting. Plus, it’s comfortable underfoot and does not vibrate like other hard surfaces would.”
