PURLINE organic flooring at the UK Münster

Wineo as Manufacturers

More than 3,000 square meters of individual PURLINE organic flooring from wineo in the Münster University Hospital (UKM).


Flooded with light, spacious and state of the art - this is how the new station 07 of the Münster University Hospital presents itself. In the process of furnishing the premise for both patients and employees, while also considering the design of both the living and transportation areas, the interior designer, Manfred Felix Haverkamp, from Haverkamp Interior Design (H-ID) focused on a minimalistic interior with clear lines, daylight-flooded rooms, green courtyards and a naturally calm colour with a material atmosphere achieved through light, white, grey as well as greige oak.


PURLINE organic flooring in the desired design.


Almost 3,300 square meters of the permanently elastic wineo PURLINE organic flooring was laid in the premise. PURLINE is the world’s only ecological polyurethane flooring, which consists of up to 90% natural raw materials (canola oil or castor oil) and natural fillers (chalk). This floor covering was produced in accordance with the individual design specifications of the interior designer. In order to meet the specifications of the interior designer, various colour decors were developed and areas were tested with varying colour depths before the desired result was achieved. The convincing result is a decor that recalls both the colour and structure of sand and stone, without imitating the natural materials.


Ecological, emission-neutral, economical


PURLINE organic flooring from wineo makes a significant contribution to the achievement of ambient air and pleasant room acoustics on the comfort ward. The sustainable contract flooring is free of chlorine, solvents and plasticisers and thus is almost completely emission-free and odour-neutral. With just 2.5 mm product structure it’s easy to renovate, extremely durable (NK 43) and is also easy to clean. As a result, it is both long-lasting and cost-saving in maintenance. As part of a life cycle- cost analysis (acc. study from Pfiff- Institute) PURLINE has been proven to provide savings of up to 30 percent over a lifespan of 20 years – this is achieved when a comparison is made to conventional elastic floorings.


Highly durable, resilient, wear-resistant and safe.


This organic flooring is highly wear-resistant and resilient against physical stress as well as the effects of chemical substances and aggressive liquids. In this way, the flooring meets the high standard requirements of the hospital, in relation to hygiene and impeccable disinfectant possibilities. Due to its thermosetting properties the polyurethane flooring retains both its colour and shape stability, even when exposed to heat (i.e. sunlight). The material-related restoring behaviour ensures that no permanent traces of indentation appear on the surface, which can often occur as a result of heavier objects such as beds or cabinets. The organic flooring is impact sound reducing and with R 9 it has extraordinary non-slip characteristics. In the case of fire, the flooring convinces with its limited smoke formation.


Certified and awarded.


PURLINE organic flooring is a “made in Germany” product. It has received numerous internationally recognised quality and emission-relevant certifications. These include the Blue Angel, GreenGuard Gold, EPD and has already been honoured 7 times with internationally acclaimed architectural and design awards.
