About this Project

The University of Pennsylvania hosts an extensive veterinary medicine program that is run out of two veterinary hospitals. The New Bolton Center Veterinary Hospital is internationally renowned and offers an excellent learning environment for enthusiastic young pre-vet students. The hospital, which was opened in 1964, serves more than 6,000 animal patients a year. The New Bolton Veterinary Hospital Campus hosts numerous facilities to benefit the animals seeking care there, including an intensive care building, rehabilitation centers, and a neonatal care unit to name a few.

Abacus’s involvement with New Bolton began in the early 2000’s with a section of flooring taking up only 2,200 square feet of area. Since then, Abacus has gone back to New Bolton on numerous occasions to help ensure their facilities are the best suited for their intended purposes. The majority of the flooring in New Bolton’s stalls, recovery rooms, surgery rooms, and walkways are coated in Abacus’s PADENPOR DLX seamless textured polyurethane surfacing system.

This flooring system is very unique and perfectly suited for this environment. Specially designed to be slip resistant, even when wet, PADENPOR DLX will keep you on your feet and off the ground. With increased thickness in the rubber underlayment, Abacus can provide a cushioned and resilient surface for these large hooved animals to walk on. These features serve to alleviate some of the pressures exerted on the horse’s bones and joints. With a large majority of the animals in this facility nursing wounds of some sort, this extra little cushion can make a huge difference during the course of the horse’s recovery period.
