recently began work on a 22,000 square-foot installation at the new Geisinger Health Systems medical laboratory at the company’s Danville, Pennsylvania campus.

The project calls for SelecTech’s FreeStyle Biolock flooring to be installed over low-rise access flooring provided by its installation partner Tate. Ewing Cole is the architect for the entire $50 million project. The Geisinger Medical Laboratory building will open in Spring 2015.

“The use of BioLock over access flooring in this new state-of-the-art laboratory will provide the best of all worlds,” said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc. “The access flooring will provide Geisinger’s IT team with flexibility for their underfloor air, water and gas utilities, as well as wire management for their power and data systems. Our BioLock flooring complements that flexibility with a wide range of benefits from both an operational and a functional side, most notably that when applied with our seam sealer is 100 percent watertight—an essential specification for any laboratory flooring.”

BioLock tiles employ a patented interlocking technology that enables adhesive-free installation. This feature allows for faster installation and the access floor panels are not required to be coated with adhesive, which can leak between the panel seams, stick the panels together and clog the corner screws. Panel access, moves and changes are much easier when flooring adhesive is not slowing things down. Because each tile has its own commercial grade polyurethane finish maintenance is quicker, easier and less expensive over the lifecycle of the floor. That kind of flexibility and cost savings is a welcomed benefit with any access flooring.

“Other floorings may have been less expensive but when you consider the maintenance element, BioLock was far more cost-effective,” said TJ Ginieczki, project manager for Ewing Cole, the architect for Geisinger’s new medical laboratory building.

FreeStyle BioLock tiles are made from 70 percent recycled materials and are 100 percent recycylable. Other BioLock features include: Enhanced ergonomics and sound reduction; meets CA 1350 indoor air quality protocol; third-party IAQ certification by MAS Certified Green; and more. FreeStyle BioLock flooring comes with a 10-year commercial wear warranty.
