Heartlands Hospital

Case Study


for a busy Birmingham hospital entrance

Working in hospital environments is always challenging; the areas are often in constant use or have a high footfall, so ensuring the flooring is turned around quickly to resume normal operations and maintaining a high installation standard is paramount. This project at Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham was no different.

Heartlands Hospital’s main corridor entrance is busy and in constant use, with thousands passing through each week to navigate this vast hospital. The Newlay Team had four days to turn this project around, ensuring the entrance was reopened daily from 10pm until 10am to allow vital supplies to reach the pharmacy.

The existing vinyl and barrier matting had been down for many years, showing heavy wear and damage to the subfloor from heavy goods trolleys. Using a diamond grinder, the team removed the old adhesive and smoothing compound to return to the substrate, ready to apply Ardex one coat DPM.

After finishing the subfloor with a smoothing compound, the Newaly Team installed 70 sqm2 of Amtico Entryway in Ruffian design to help prevent slips and trips and to reduce dirt from being tracked into clinical environments.

Amtico Entryway is tough, resilient and protective, featuring reinforced scraper fibres to remove grit and moisture – a perfect choice of commercial entrance matting for high-footfall areas.
