Health & Aged CareIt is crucial that lightweight lining solutions in the healthcare environment – in structures defined by the BCA as Class 9a, covering hospitals, clinics, care homes and pathology functions – offer optimal insulation against fire, noise, water ingress and impact. They must also retain exceptionally high levels of hygiene. Delivering excellent routine performance, GTEK's™ certified wall and ceiling systems will also counter exceptional circumstances related to chemical and biological infection and radiation control.
Coleraine Hospital Case Study
Built in 2013 this hospital provides the local community with residential aged care, allied health, home and community care services and community health services.
GTEK™ was used extensively throughout this project with each product selected needing to meet practical and specification requirements
(NB: at the time the Coleraine Hospital was built GTEK™ was known as BGC Plasterboard).
We used a wide range of 13 and 16mm GTEKTM Fire to achieve ratings, 6.5mm Curve in the nurses area, Impact in high traffic areas and Sound in between all the bedrooms.Matt Patzel
