Designed to provide class leading ceiling solutions for a variety of specialist healthcare applications. They comply with the relevant Health Technical Memoranda (HTM) design considerations, e.g. HTM 60 Ceilings and HTM 2045 Acoustics.

MediCare Standard is HTM 60 compliant in categories 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

The MediCare range tiles are all resistant to ubiquitous bacteria and fungi, in particular Staphylococcus aureus including its Methicin resistant strain (MRSA).

All MediCare tiles have smooth imperforate aesthetically pleasing surfaces.

The MediCare range is easy to handle and cut and is available in sizes up to 2.4 m in length to span corridor widths. Installation of the MediCare products in RockLink FasTrac grid system saves both installation time and grid components. For corridors System MaxiSpan can be used to fasten the ceiling to the walls instead of the often congested soffit.

All MediCare products provide durable ceilings with a good whole life cost.
