Inhabit Sheet

Holistic Healing Environments

Flooring provides critical support for the environments where we heal in New Zealand. 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 New Zealand?

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 unrivalled 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.

We design using the Cradle to Cradle® philosophy to focus on material health, material reutilization, renewable energy, and carbon management. (link to healthcare w/out harm)

Installing our polish-optional LVT or sheet eliminates the need for stripping and waxing, keeping spaces operational during maintenance and cleaning. (link to technical pages)

With polish-optional resilient to carpet and hard surface that requires no transitions, our human-centric products are designed with safety in mind.

Now, more than ever, our healthcare spaces need to prevent the spread of infections. Our flooring solutions can help.

Combined with our hard surface products, S150 adhesive can have your surgical or patient rooms operable 3 days earlier than competitive products.
