Ospedale San Gerardo - Monza (MB) - Italy
Extremely high performance and unique level of hygiene and well-being make FMG floors with Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ the ideal covering for public spaces like hospitals, clinics and doctors’ surgeries.
FMG Active in Ocra from the Rocce collection (which also includes Antracite, Beige, Ossidiana, Cenere and Moka) has been used at the San Gerardo Hospital in Monza, the fourth largest public hospital in Lombardy, linked to the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the Milan Bicocca University.
The hospital is divided into 8 departments and has dozens of avant-garde clinics, test labs, diagnostic and rehabilitation units, many of which are examples of excellence in their field.
FMG surfaces treated with the innovative Active Clean Air & Antibacterial Ceramic™ formula create unique coverings at the San Gerardo.
They are non-polluting, self-cleaning, antibacterial and anti-odour, as well as being highly resistant to intense pedestrian traffic and other wear and tear.
FMG Active slabs contain an active ingredient that helps improve the quality of the environment, based on what occurs in nature (chlorophyll photosynthesis).
In fact, with this product, harmful organic and inorganic substances are decomposed through the natural phenomenon of photocatalysis.
A tested, ISO certified process (ISO 10678:2010, ISO 27448-1:2008 E ISO 27447:2009) is implemented in the production phase by fixing Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) at extremely high temperatures.
This photocatalyser is present in the form of micrometric particles, its function remains unaltered over time and it is activated by light (both natural and artificial) and air alone.
The result of FMG surfaces at the San Gerardo is an eco-active, self-cleaning and extremely hygienic porcelain slab that provides the ideal conditions for a hospital environment, for the well-being of patients, staff and visitors.
