Holistic Healing Environments
Flooring provides critical support for the environments where we heal. At Shaw Contract, we aim to make a Smarter Impact by advancing our understanding of all that contributes to healing – from color to acoustics, infection control to glare reduction.
How Can Flooring Improve Patient Outcomes?
In Healthcare, flooring provides critical support and performance for a wide range of specialised environments, from the operating room to the waiting room. Shaw Contract serves the segment as a committed partner, with unrivaled expertise and a dedicated portfolio of solution-driven products.
Responsible manufacturing begins with our product development process that considers the well-being of patients and staff in healthcare environments. For the comfort and wellbeing of patients, we use the principles of biophilic design to develop products that have a positive impact on HCAHPS scores.
Solutions for Health and Well-Being
We design using the Cradle to Cradle® philosophy to focus on material health, material reutilization, renewable energy, and carbon management.
Installing our polish-optional LVT or sheet eliminates the need for stripping and waxing, keeping spaces operational during maintenance and cleaning.
A large body of evidence attests to the fact that the physical environment impacts patient stress, staff effectiveness, and quality of care provided in hospitals and other healthcare settings. The calming power of a soft surface, a clean resilient floor, nature based patterns, tempered acoustics, or the soothing interplay of light and shadow are all essential elements we consider when designing our products.
