-- SelecTech, Inc., a leader in the manufacture of innovative flooring products with long-term value and immediate benefits, will present and exhibit at the 2021 Lab Design Conference being held September 20-21 at the Sheraton Philadelphia, 201 North 17th Street, Philadelphia, PA. SelecTech Director of Sales Joe Berkowitz will be one of several expert presenters at the 20th annual Lab Design Conference.
"The response to the pandemic put on center stage the important work being done at labs all over the world. 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. "With our presentation and exhibit, we're looking to demonstrate how an investment in lab flooring specifically designed for labs and clean rooms can support the important work being done."
SelecTech makes a product designed specifically for labs and clean room, 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 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 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, we've 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 location—with additional tiles being purchased for the new space."
SelecTech flooring products are made with 70 percent recycled materials and are 100 percent recyclable. SelecTech flooring products meet CA 1350 Indoor Air Quality and is MAS Certified Green.
