SelecTech launches lab division
"Coinciding with the advances in science and life science is the growth of the labs serving them. Universities, life science and science-related companies have had to upgrade equipment to meet the needs of these advancements. One of those areas an upgrade needs to address is flooring," said Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SelecTech, Inc.
Currently, SelecTech's FreeStyle flooring line includes FreeStyle BioLock, an interlocking flooring product customized for use in labs. BioLock 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 clean rooms 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 lab's flooring.
Additionally, SelecTech's StaticStop ESD flooring products are used in some labs to reduce static electricity discharge. Those products also utilize interlocking technology for easy installation, maintenance and portability.
"The growth of labs during the last several years has been another issue. Sometimes labs need to move equipment to better accommodate growth. Sometimes the growth of a lab means relocating to another part of a building or event a new property," said Ricciardelli. "Our interlocking flooring products can be moved from one location to another and easily reinstalled."
Made with 70 percent recycled materials and 100 percent recyclable, SelecTech flooring products meet CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.
