Hospitals are always striving for products that provide better interior air quality for their patients and staff without sacrificing aesthetics. This is where the Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI) comes in. This coalition aims to include safer and more eco-friendly products throughout the healthcare system by labeling them “Green” or “Healthy-Hospital Certified.”
Where does flooring fit in? Hospitals often refer to the HHI to receive guidance on selecting low VOC products (Volatile Organic Components). Upofloor Xpression is one example of a flooring line that complies with the Healthier Hospitals Initiative guidelines. Consisting of expertly designed PVC-free and plasticizer-free planks and tiles, the flooring products in this line are good for our health and the environment. The Xpression line is bacteria-resistant, chemical-resistant, and has low maintenance requirements and excellent durability. Wood planks come in calm, classic, and rustic variations that range in light to dark tones. The tile collection embraces earthy colors that come in stripes, terra, and moody designs.
