Seamless Floors Prescribed for Med Exam Facility

Orlando District Nine Medical Examiner's Office

Stonhard, a manufacturer of seamless, high-performance flooring systems, supplied and installed epoxy- and urethane-based flooring at the new District Nine Medical Examiner’s Office in Orlando, FL. One of the flooring materials incorporates recycled glass.

The District Nine office serves as the setting for the Discovery Health network show, “Dr. G., Medical Examiner.” After storage became a problem at the medical examiner’s office, District Nine built a 40,000-square-foot facility at a new site. Planners for the building sought to specify floors that would stand up to harsh conditions—temperature extremes, exposure to fluids and chemicals, frequent cleaning, and heavy cart traffic.

“We wanted a seamless, easy to clean surface without grout lines, which are very difficult to keep clean in this type of setting,” said Steven Hanson, chief investigator/forensic services program manager at District Nine. The “green” aspect of the product was also important, as the new facility planned to seek LEED Silver certification.

In autopsy areas, the flooring installed is Stonhard’s Stonblend GSI-G, a 100% solids epoxy mortar system with 12% recycled-glass content. The glass contributes to the terrazzo-like appearance of the floor, which offers a long-lasting, easy-to-clean surface that is resistant to chemicals and abrasion, the company says. The flooring system is composed of epoxy primer; trowel-on epoxy base mortar consisting of epoxy resin, curing agent, and colored quartz blend and glass aggregate; and epoxy sealer.

In other areas, the flooring installed is Stontec TRF, a mortar-based urethane system that incorporates decorative flakes and provides a smooth, durable, stain- and temperature-resistant, sanitary surface, the company says. The system consists of an epoxy bonding undercoat; a four-component urethane mortar; colored flakes; and an aliphatic polyaspartic urethane sealer.
