Mannington Commercial Resilient Sheet Used in US Army Corps Temporary Hospital

Mannington Commercial partnered with Consolidated Carpet to deliver more than 12,700 square yards of heterogeneous resilient sheet flooring to the SUNY College Old Westbury campus in New York for one of the latest US Army Corps of Engineers temporary healthcare facilities last week. Mannington along with their distributor, Salesmaster, was able to provide stock specifications, arrange logistics and ship the first 2,700 square yards going in over the University’s existing gymnasium flooring just one day after receiving the inquiry. An additional 10,000 square yards were shipped just one week later to be installed in an all new temporary care facility on the campus.

The gymnasium installation presented a unique set of challenges for Consolidated Carpet’s installers as the material could not be glued down and had to meet stringent infection control guidelines for healthcare flooring. Mannington’s team of healthcare segment leaders and Consolidated’s expert installers determined a heterogeneous resilient sheet was the right solution for the project and decided on a temporary tape installation system. A 12’ roll width was chosen to mitigate the number of seams that had to be heat welded throughout the facility and cut down on overall installation time.

Mannington Commercial is making certain that proper flooring material that aids in infection control, cleanability and slip resistance is available for this ever-evolving healthcare crisis. With 7 million square feet of resilient sheet in inventory and the ability to produce up to 1 million square feet a week domestically, Mannington continues to explore every possibility to support our communities as we respond to COVID-19.
