Mannington Teams w/ Consolidated Carpet to Provide Sheet Vinyl for SUNY Hospital
Salem, NJ, April 13, 2020-Mannington Commercial delivered more than 12,700 square yards of heterogenous resilient sheet flooring to the SUNY College Old Westbury campus in New York to be installed in one of the latest U.S. Army Corps of Engineers temporary healthcare facilities last week. The manufacturer partnered with Consolidated Carpet, a major commercial flooring contractor in the New York City area, in completing the project.
Mannington was able to provide stock specifications, arrange logistics and ship the first 2,700 square yards going in over the University’s existing gymnasium flooring just one day after receiving the inquiry. An additional 10,000 square yards were shipped just one week later to be installed in an all new temporary care facility on the campus.
The gymnasium installation presented a unique set of challenges as the material could not be glued down and had to meet stringent infection control guidelines for healthcare flooring. A heterogeneous resilient sheet was chosen for the project and installed using a temporary tape system. A 12’ roll width was chosen to mitigate the number of seams that had to be heat welded throughout the facility and cut down on overall installation time.
