Brigham & Women’s access floors

Recently, our company was fortunate to work closely with Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston. With a need for an updated flooring system that projected the sensitive equipment in use, among other requirements, SelecTech proved the most capable.

“An MRI room requires a special kind of tile for any number of reasons. For this particular job, the room utilized Hayworth’s access flooring system. Therefore, required a finished surface that could be removed to gain access to the subfloor panels. It also required embedding Gauss Lines on the floor to signify the magnetic field inside of the room,” stated Thomas Ricciardelli, president of SeleTech, Inc. “On top of all that, the MRI floor needs to provide comfort to the medical staff who have to stand on the tiles all day, as well as be easy to maintain. With these considerations in mind, FreeStyle performs like few other tiles in a hospital setting.”

The project was initiated and installed by Integrated Interiors, an installer of Haworth Tecrete access flooring systems.
