The bedroom and en suite flooring at Coate Water Care’s Woodstock Nursing Home in Gloucester was tatty and in need of replacing. Nursing Home Manager, Trudy Glassonbury, said: “We wanted to continue with a wood effect product, as it is stylish, homely, and warm looking. We needed something that would be quick to fit, so that it would cause minimum disruption to residents”.
The nursing home team consulted with C&C Flooring, with whom they’d worked for a number of years to discuss their requirements. Trudy continued: “C&C Flooring recommended the new Altro Wood adhesive-free product, because it could go down on top of the existing flooring and would take a fraction of the time to install compared with an adhered product. This was ideal for us, as we could fit it in the five bedrooms and en suites we were refurbishing without prolonged disruption to residents.”
Altro Wood adhesive-free is a safety wood-look floor with easy cleanability; perfect for decorative, homely or biophilic areas. And its adhesive-free technology means it can reduce installation time by half. 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.
Trudy said: “It took far less time than an adhered flooring would have taken. There was no need to remove the old flooring, or put down a screed, or drying time. It was so professional and fast. Plus of course there were no adhesive smells, which in a care home setting with vulnerable residents is a very important consideration.”
Altro Wood adhesive-free creates maximum impact with minimum downtime. With 12 colour choices, 14dB sound reduction, a 10-year guarantee and our Altro one in a million slip-resistance reassurance, Altro Wood adhesive-free offers high levels of comfort underfoot providing a safe, durable and decorative solution for busy spaces.
Using our award-winning adhesive-free installation method, it can be welded and walked on the same day, and at the end of its life 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 and save up to 35% in cost. It is ideal for busy public spaces where disruption needs to be minimal, plus there are no associated adhesive odours.
