A prescription for healthcare that saves money
To remain viable in a very competitive marketplace, hospitals and clinics must invest in expensive medical systems and equipment. Older healthcare facilities must stay ahead of building repairs and refurbishments. Newly-planned facilities must contend with the rising costs of construction. Compliance with a host of safety regulations can be costly, as well.
Sika roofing systems help to alleviate cost issues. The single-ply thermoplastic membranes are durable, lightweight and flexible, and available in a variety of systems. Included are the reflective, energy-efficient EnergySmart Roof®; a Solar Integrated Roofing System; vegetated Green Roofs; and stylish Decor Roof Systems in a range of standard and custom colors.
Champion of Design Freedom
Décor Roofing Systems
Décor is available in seven standard colors, including four EnergySmart Roof colors that meet the latest EPA Energy Star® standards, and an unlimited number of custom colors.
When it was time for the Hancock Medical Center in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, to reroof its building, aesthetics were an important factor. The sloped roofs are an architectural element of the building, and the medical center wanted the look of standing seam metal. Décor Roof Systems was the ideal choice, providing them with the look they desired along with the long-term, water-tight performance of a Sika thermoplastic membrane.
A history of proven performance
Performance over time is the only true test of the quality
Performance over time is the only true test of the quality of roofing or waterproofing systems. Independent studies have shown that Sika roofs last for decades — this legacy of proven performance can be found on buildings around the globe, in every imaginable climate. Healthcare facility managers know they can depend on Sika for proven roofing products and system performance.
Fire Resistance Means Safer Environment
Vinyl materials, such as Sika roofing membranes, are naturally fire retardant and do not support combustion when the flame source is removed.
In April of 2014, a medical helicopter crashed onto the roof of the University of New Mexico Hospital shortly after dropping off a patient. As a result of the crash, which all three crew members survived, fuel was spilled and quickly ignited. Luckily, the fire was suppressed right away and did not spread thanks to the building’s Sika Sarnafil roofing membrane. Learn more about Sika Sarnafil Fire Performance.

From Roof to Floor
Hospital, Pharmaceutical, and Vivarium floor and wall systems often fail at the seams due to building movement, product shrinkage or induced stress from rolling loads. Sika floor and wall systems have no seams, so this common failure point can be completely avoided. Learn more about Sikafloor for your healthcare facility
