Any healthcare flooring solution offering “alkali and stain resistance to a variety of substances including acetone, coffee, and betadine,” certainly has my vote, since the coffee-swilling, acetone-using, betadine-injecting hordes have recently come to dominate the healthcare venue. In all serious, resistance to stains and spills (especially of potent chemicals) isn’t merely an aesthetic issue but a sanitary one, and Johnsonite’s new Lenza and Tonali Harmonium Linoleum lines perform admirably.
High Peformance, Aesthetic Appeal, and Sustainability
Johnsonite’s Harmonium Line is uniformly a fine looking floor. The collection features two coordinating patterns: the striated Lenza—offering intriguing contrast; and the marbleized Tonali—facilitating large, warm expanses of any one of Johnsonite’s 16 different colorways.
The look is a stand-out among hospital floors, yet the line’s most crucial feature is its unmatched synthesis of performance and ease of maintenance. Featuring Johnsonite’s proprietary Harmonium xf finish, the flooring requires neither initial waxing nor polishing. Estimates for savings on maintenance, water, and detergent costs range from 30 to 50 percent over the life of the floor.
Both lines have excellent sustainability credentials. They’re made almost exclusively of natural materials (linseed oil, flax seed, wood and limestone). And they feature 34 percent recycled content: “the products have earned a Cradle to Cradle Silver ranking and are USDA Bio-based 95 percent certified for the ideal sustainable solution.”
