Even prior to the pandemic, there was growth in the science and life science industries dictating larger and more sophisticated laboratories. The pandemic accelerated that need and shined a light on one of the more overlooked parts of a lab, the floor, said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc. With our exhibit, were looking to demonstrate how an investment in lab flooring specifically designed for labs and cleanrooms can support the important work being done.
SelecTech makes a product designed specifically for labs and cleanrooms, FreeStyle BioLock. BioLock is an interlocking flooring product that utilizes a water-proof seam sealer that makes tiles liquid-tight but still removable and replaceable. This is a critical feature when you consider that some labs and cleanrooms might be using chemicals that could be damaging if spilled and seeps into flooring. This is particularly important to protect the wiring and plumbing that are often underneath a labs flooring.
Additionally, SelecTech offers StaticStop ESD flooring products, which are used in some labs to reduce static electricity discharge. Those products also utilize interlocking technology for easy installation, maintenance and portability.
During the pandemic, weve seen a number of temporary labs pop up to meet the demands of the crisis. Our interlocking flooring products have served this need well as it can easily be installed for a temporary facility and then removed and used somewhere else, said Ricciardelli. The portability factor has also been important with the growth of labs during the last several years. Rather than buying entirely new tiles for a lab, our interlocking product can be moved to a new space, be it in the same building or different locationwith additional tiles being purchased for the new space.
