Schlüter compliments £480 million state-of-the-art hospital

Top of the range movement joints from Schlüter-Systems have been chosen to secure the flooring of a new £480 million project that will see Southmead Hospital Bristol become one of Europe’s leading medical facilities.

Playing an essential role in the hospital’s aim to deliver exceptional healthcare and high quality facilities, Schlüter’s maintenance free movement joints, Schlüter®-DILEX-KS, were specified thanks to the product’s high durability and secure edge protection for tile and natural stone flooring.

Installed throughout the new Brunel Building, which is due to open its doors in spring 2014, Schlüter®-DILEX-KS offers the ultimate in flooring protection. Ideal for use with floors that are exposed to pedestrian traffic and for surfaces subjected to heavy mechanical traffic, the stainless steel movement joints ensure tiles won’t bulge, dent or crack from substrate.

However, as with any installation a product has to tick a variety of boxes to become the recommended choice of architects and contractors and so, as well as its ability to protect and secure, Schlüter®-DILEX-KS also provides a high quality finish. Matching perfectly with the new state-of-the-art surroundings, the movement joints provide a discreet but aesthetically pleasing look to compliment its surroundings.

Carl Stokes, Head of Marketing and Customer Service, comments,

“We are extremely proud to have been chosen to provide protection, care and security within surroundings that mirror and offer these exact qualities. The new hospital will see the healthcare in Bristol and the surroundings areas be completely revolutionised and here at Schlüter-Systems we champion innovation and therefore our innovative products such as Schlüter®-DILEX-KS are the perfect match for Southmead Hospital’s future vision and ambition.”
