Sant’Anna Hospital of Brescia
The Sant’Anna Hospital of Brescia has been operational since 1970. It is accredited from the National Health Service and is part of the Gruppo Ospedaliero San Donato (GSD), a non-profit organization that aims to promote research, studies and cultural exchanges in the field of biomedical sciences and health. Situated in the east of Brescia, the Sant’Anna hospital has a surface area of more than 30.000 square meters. However, it is currently in expansion with the construction of a new area according to a requalification project.
It is exactly for the bathrooms finishes of this area that Profilpas has supplied the external corners profiles Proangle Q and the internal corners profiles Proround M.
The external corners profiles Proangle Q used for the bathrooms of Sant’Anna Hospital
Proangle Q is a line of universal profiles, in aluminium, steel or brass, specifically designed to seal and protect the external corners of ceramic coverings, whose square shape clearly defines the laying of coverings thus avoiding the unsightly and fragile tiles edge of 45 degrees. This line is also indicated for installations on wood, resine or stone floors.
The external corners profiles Proangle Q ZQIN in stainless steel have been used for the bathroom finishes of the new area of the Sant’Anna Hospital. Indeed, the stainless steel is a material that is particularly resistant to chemical and atmospheric agents, lime and mortar, adhesives for tiles and cleaning products. The use of stainless steel profiles is particularly recommended for spaces such as hospitals, food industries, swimming pools and outside spaces in general.
Internal corners profiles Proround M used for the bathrooms of Sant’Anna Hospital
Proround M is a line of profiles for the perimetral connection between the floor and the wall that have to be installed during the laying in places where a high hygienic level is required, such as hospitals, food industries, swimming pools, spas and industrial kitchens. They are stainless steel (polished or satin) profiles that are specifically designed to be combined with Proangle Q and Probord ILN profiles.
Proround M GIN profiles in polished stainless steel have been used for the bathrooms of the new expanding area of Sant’Anna Hospital. Moreover, special accessories for internal corners have been applied.
The current hygienic maintenance requisites established by European Standards require the elimination of the 90 degrees corner in order to avoid the deposit of dirt and, therefore, the formation of bacteria by creating a curvature that facilitates the cleaning.
Care and maintenance of stainless steel profiles
The stainless steel is an easy-to-clean and extremely hygienic material: therefore, its smooth and non-porous surface impedes the survival of bacteria and other microorganisms. For the cleaning, you just need to wash it with soap and water, then rinse it with abundant water and dry it with a soft rag.
It is highly recommended to avoid the contact of stainless steel with cleansers containing hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, bleach or chlorides and with powdered abrasive cleansers. Furthermore, you should avoid long contacts with damp rags or sponges in order to prevent the formation of unsightly water stains.
