PVC flooring for humanitarian facilities

from Info CastimondiUpdated on 28.02.2024

Economical, fast and innovative solutions for accommodation and furnishings play a decisive role in humanitarian aid and emergency shelters. Suitable floor coverings pose a particular challenge. PVC tiles have established themselves as a very suitable flooring option for refugee centres and emergency shelters, not only meeting the needs of residents but also overcoming the challenges of durability, installation and hygiene.

What are the advantages of PVC flooring?

1. robustness and durability: PVC tiles are known for their remarkable robustness and durability. In refugee centres, resistant floor coverings are of crucial importance. The tiles can withstand heavy use without compromising on quality, providing a long-term solution for mobile accommodation with heavy and very heavy use.

2. quick installation: The speed with which temporary accommodation has to be erected requires materials that are easy and, above all, quick to install. PVC tiles fulfil this criterion with ease. The simple connection technology allows for quick installation without time-consuming preparations. This saves time and is economical.

3. modular construction and mobility: Emergency shelters often have to be adapted to changing needs and locations. The modular construction and dismantling of the PVC tiles enables flexible use and adaptation to different environments without having to compromise on the quality of the floor covering.

4. hygiene and cleaning: The hygienic properties of PVC tiles are particularly important in environments where many people live in confined spaces. The surface and texture of the tiles facilitates cleaning and helps to ensure a clean and healthy environment.

5. variety of colours and design options: PVC tiles offer a wide range of colours and designs that are not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing. This creates a positive environment and gives residents a sense of normality and dignity, even in difficult situations.

Overall, PVC tiles are a versatile and practical solution for use in refugee centres and mobile accommodation. Their robustness, ease of installation and hygienic properties help to improve the living conditions of residents while meeting the challenges of humanitarian aid.

What makes PVC flooring so interesting when it comes to hygiene?

A decisive factor for the hygiene of PVC flooring is its smooth surface. This makes cleaning much easier. In contrast to other surfaces, PVC floors offer little room for germs, which is very important in environments with high occupancy rates.

The water resistance of PVC flooring also contributes to hygiene in particular. Thanks to their insensitivity to moisture, they not only prevent mould growth, but also enable easy cleaning and disinfection. This is particularly important in environments where people live in confined spaces.

Another aspect that emphasises the hygienic properties of PVC flooring is its resistance to bacteria. Some variants are even treated with antibacterial additives that inhibit the growth of germs. This is particularly important to minimise the spread of disease in shared accommodation.

In addition, PVC flooring is generally very quick and easy to clean and replace. The surface makes it easy to remove dirt and soiling, while its resistance to cleaning agents and disinfectants ensures effective maintenance.

Finally, PVC flooring helps to minimise allergens such as dust mites or pollen thanks to its low porosity and lack of fibres. This makes them suitable not only for the general population but also for allergy sufferers and promotes a healthier living environment.
