The space-themed flooring design installed at the Nightingale Children's Ward

Bespoke space-themed flooring installed at Chesterfield Hospital

  • 8 Sep 2015

Polyflor has created a bespoke, space-themed vinyl flooring design for the Nightingale Children’s Ward at Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Polyflor’s Design Service created the design for the children’s ward, featuring a colourful rocket ship, planets and stars. The design elements of the floor were manufactured by Polyflor, then cut into the sheet flooring on site by County Contract Flooring.

Polyflor’s Pearlazzo PUR vinyl sheet flooring in Purple Crush (9722) was used as the backdrop to the play area’s space themed designs.

The designs used a mixture of colours from the Pearlazzo PUR, 2000 PUR, Classic Mystique and XL PU homogeneous vinyl ranges.

The Pearlazzo PUR collection features 24 bright, pastel and neutral shades with pearlescent multi-flake decoration.

The range is an increasingly popular choice for hospitals due to its UV cured and cross-linked polyurethane PUR coating. This allows for an easy-clean, polish-free maintenance regime.

It also achieves an individually certified BRE Global A+ rating in healthcare facilities which can contribute to BREEAM credits, as can the products’ BES 6001 certification which demonstrates compliance with a recognised responsible sourcing scheme.

Bespoke flooring designs

Polyflor’s Design Service frequently works with specifiers to create bespoke design flooring for children’s wards and other areas within hospitals. 

With the use of water jet cutting there is no limit to the shapes, patterns or designs which can be created for customers, including intricate logos and signage.

Ian Summers,  Estates Project Engineer at Chesterfield Royal hospital commented: “We were really impressed with the design idea which Polyflor presented us with and the finished result. The bright colours and bold design really brings the play area to life and it has proved popular with both the children and their parents.”
