Given the high demands on hygiene in health care institutions, flat skirting strip solutions – which are often mistakenly chosen as more cost-advantageous – are always the wrong solution.
What’s more the all-essential cleaning standard can never be guaranteed with a flat skirting strip and its dirt trap crack in the area where wall and floor meet. The material is simply predestined to tear away and leave a dirt collecting gap. This is why a flat skirting strip solution is not the choice for a real and hygienic permanent solution; these are quite simply not economic, efficient or ecologically sustainable.
Experience has shown that damage caused by the sagging of the screed floor normally only occurs after construction has been completed. At that time, the buildings are normally already in operation and repair of the damage on a building “in use” is always very complex.
