HOSPITAL CLÍNICO SAN CARLOS (MADRID) INSTALLS ANTIBACTERIAL SO CARING PANELS
The Hospital Clínico San Carlos, in Madrid, has just completed its installation of So Caring antibacterial panels as a coating on the walls and ceilings of the rooms and corridors of the pediatric wing.
The Project was conceived by the architect Ana Souza who used vivid colors from the INNOVUS range and a selection of laminated digital patterns of animal drawings and letters, thus creating a luminous, happy and familiar atmosphere.
The antibacterial efficiency of the So Caring panels, which was scientifically proven by the german SGS-Intitut Freseniu, the Hohenstein Institute and the laboratory of Biotechnology at the Portuguese Catholic University, will certainly contribute in reducing the risk of bacterial contamination in those spaces and, therefore, provide a greater protection for their small patients.
So Caring surfaces are hygienic, very resistant to stains, wear and impact, and very easy to clean. Additionally, it´s antibacterial characteristics do not change with cleaning and maintenance and the decorative potential is ensured by its availability in colors and INNOVUS patterns.
All these characteristics make So Caring a recommended solution for coatings/overlaying in public places with a high movement of people such as in hospitals, health centers, schools, hotels, etc.
The installation of So Caring at the Hospital Clínico San Carlos was another result of Sonae Indústria´s Social responsibility policy.
