The healthcare market, particularly public hospitals, not only have specific needs in terms of hygiene, maintenance and resistance to wear and tear but also have complicated and stringent procurement policies in terms of approved contractors and tendering procedures and policies.
The SPM product range embraces protective and ergonomic decorative panels, wall protection, hand rails and door and corner protection, providing solutions where safety, hygiene, easy maintenance, noise management and aesthetics are paramount.

Organisations with framework solutions offer their public sector partners EU compliant frameworks which the public sector can use to procure products and services, without the expensive and time consuming tendering process.
Gerflor and its partners understand the benefits these agreements offer the healthcare sector. Equally important, the company has never had a more comprehensive product range or been better placed to work with designers, specifiers and estate managers alike to ensure that the best ‘value for money’ option is available, whilst also maintaining the highest levels of quality, innovation and design.
