Laboratories & Hospitals
In the sanitary structures, flooring is fundamental both from an hygienic and mechanical point of view. For this reason the choice of an easy cleaning surface built with Cipa Gres porcelain stoneware is the right choice to reduce any risk of contamination. An easily sanitized floor allows the sterilization of all environments, ensuring safety of respect of the hygiene rules. The company know-how, developed over years of experience with our customers, allowed us to obtain full-body porcelain stoneware with an excellent result in post-cleaning microbacterial analysis.
How certified by referenced third party bodies, our finished products have no residual bacterial load after cleaning, and we believe this is the main feature, and the main reason for choosing a Cipa Gres floor to be used in a hospital / healthcare building or in clinical laboratories.
The remarkable qualities of mechanical resistance obtained without surface treatments and the total absence of volatile organic compounds, guarantee their durability for very long times without any type of alteration.
The possible restoration of the paved surfaces is fast and decisive also from an aesthetic point of view, leaving no trace of any repairs and allowing definitive and lasting internal maintenance .
Cipa Gres porcelain stoneware is classified according to ISO 13006 EN 14411 Group B1a UGL or more simply as monolithic UGL (unglazed) porcelain stoneware. It is made up of a single homogeneous mass that makes it much more resistant than any other type of material that can be used for paving. Foot traffic usury is absolutely to keep in note, with thousands of users who often arrive directly from the road with dirty sand soles. This is the stress type that need UGL products.
