In today's world, many people are trying to take care of their health. People working in health care institutions understand this and try to create the most comfortable conditions for their patients. Floor coverings play a significant role in the interior fit out. 10-15 years ago nobody even thought about the importance of this issue. When creating comfort atmosphere for staff and patients, the question of the covering service life and its quality wasn’t taken into account. Over the years, the situation has changed, such criteria as antibacterial property, durability, easy cleaning, fire safety, anti-slip properties and others have become centre-staged. Along with this, the current legislation imposes special requirements to the covering to be placed in hospitals, medical offices and clinics. The best option for all parameters, suitable for the requirements, is the use of covering like PVC flooring. The first thing to do while selecting the floor material for health care institutions is to provide the options the floor covering should correspond to:

1. Wear resistance. The service life of Komitex Lin PVC floor covering is 2.5 times longer because of extremely strong protective layer StrongWear.

2. Fire safety. Komitex Lin flooring has KM2 certificate (Spectrum, Everest, Elbrus) according to the rules and regulations for medical institutions.

3. Today medicine has modern and expensive equipment. For areas where such equipment is installed, floor covering with antistatic properties is the best choice. Our PVC flooring has these properties; it is confirmed by the relevant certificate.
4. Antibacterial. It prevents the spread of bacteria on the surface of the floor covering. The covering has a certificate proving its antibacterial properties.

5. Anti- slip - slip resistance. Komitex Lin floor covering has a Certificate "Anti-slip".

6. Easy to clean. Easy cleaning without the use of special detergents.
