New Altro Wood adhesive-free flooring is a winner at Bedford care home

  • 12 Feb 2021

Altro Wood™ adhesive-free flooring is providing a Bedford care home with a homely, practical and safe new surface for their dining room – and, incredibly, it was installed in under a day.

Altro Wood adhesive-free is a safety wood-look floor with easy cleanability that is perfect for decorative, homely or biophilic areas.

Jackie Ballinger, registered manager at Henrietta House care home, commented: “The safety and physical and mental wellbeing of our 25 residents is paramount, so we strive to use fixtures and fittings that will bring maximum benefit.

“The previous vinyl floor in the dining room was getting rather tired and worn, so we needed something new. But we wanted to upgrade to something more homely and warm, while still ensuring the surface was practical and safe for both staff and residents. And it was important that the new flooring should go down as quickly as possible and minimise disruption.

“One of our members of staff has very positive experience of Altro wood-look flooring, so we approached Altro and they told us about the benefits of their new adhesive-free product. It was just what we were looking for.”

New Altro Wood adhesive-free flooring creates maximum impact with minimum downtime. With 12 colour choices, 14dB sound reduction, a 10-year guarantee and Altro’s one in a million slip-resistance reassurance, Altro Wood offers high levels of comfort underfoot, providing a safe, durable and decorative solution for busy spaces.

Using Altro’s award-winning adhesive-free installation method, it can be welded and walked on the same day.

At the end of its life, it can be removed easily, allowing it to be reused or recycled. Using Altro adhesive-free floors, you can halve installation time compared with a traditional adhered installation.

It is ideal for busy public spaces where disruption needs to be minimal, plus there are no associated adhesive odours.

Altro

Altro Wood adhesive-free has 12 wood-look designs, allowing the creation of biophilic, stylish, or warm and homely aesthetics, together with the durability needed for medium to high traffic areas.

Robust enough to withstand rigorous and frequent cleaning, like all Altro floors, Altro Wood adhesive-free can be steam cleaned thousands of times without damage.

Jackie added: “The installation went very smoothly with no fuss or mess. The fitters were very sensitive to the needs of residents and we were so impressed with that.

“It was all finished in under a day, which was wonderful; we only have one dining room, so we needed it to be fitted fast and right first time. There were no adhesive smells to worry about either, which is ideal in a care home environment.

“We are thrilled with how it looks, and we get positive feedback all the time from residents, staff and visitors. It has delivered the homely, relaxing look we want, it’s very safe underfoot, practical and easy to clean.

“A great product for us, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for stylish yet practical flooring that’s quick to install.”
