BioLock flooring meets FDA requirements
Posted on: 05-02-2020 by Floor Covering Media


A number of specialty flooring suppliers are attempting to reduce the burden hospitals and healthcare facilities must bear during The COVID-19 crisis.



Among them is SelecTech, Inc., a manufacturer of useful flooring products with long-term value and immediate benefits. The company recently launched a healthcare division on March 27, 2020. On April 27, 2020, the company announced that its FreeStyle BioLock flooring meets the FDA requirements for specialty flooring; used for temporary labs and clinics. 


What are these requirements? 21 CFR 211.42 -C 10 (i) requires that flooring among other surfaces be easily cleanable. FreeStyle BioLock is a durable, hard surface. It's easy to clean with anti-microbial, hypochlorite or disinfectant cleaners. This flooring can be quickly installed over an existing surface and once it is installed may be cleaned with auto scrubbers.


Without much sub floor prep time needed, it's an intuitive choice for temporary or permanent lab and healthcare facilities.


It is an interlocking flooring product customized for use in hospitals, cleanrooms and labs. It's water-proof seam sealer makes tiles liquid-tight but still removable and replaceable. It is a useful feature for those labs and clinics using chemicals that if they are inadvertently spilled and if it is allowed to seep into flooring underneath may be damaging and dangerous.

Its finish is durable (urethane, no-wax). It's stain resistant. It's simple to maintain. It's easily disinfected. Its slip-resistance conforms to ADA Recommendations (0.70 ASTM D-2047). It's a comfortable walking surface with enhanced ergonomics and excellent sound reduction.

Abrasion resistence? Less than 0.01 gram weight lost ASTM-3389. It easily handles high volumes of all types of traffic: foot traffic and mechanical traffic (wheeled beds, carts, equipment, etc...). It's made with 70 percent recycled materials. It's 100 percent recyclable. It meets CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.

After the emergency, the tiles can be reused in another location, or recycled back into new tiles. It's take back program allows users to conveniently repurpose the tiles when they are done with them and keep them out of the waste stream. It's a responsible alternative and a sensible one.
