Bedford care home stuck on Altro Wood adhesive-free flooring

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

Henrietta House wanted an attractive flooring to replace the previous vinyl floor in the dining room that was safe, practical and quick to install.

“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,” said Henrietta House registered manager Jackie Ballinger.

“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.”

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, and at the end of its life can be removed easily, allowing it to be reused or recycled.

Installation time can have halved compared with a traditional adhered installation - ideal for busy public spaces where disruption needs to be minimal, plus there are no associated adhesive odours.

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.

The product is a safety wood-look floor with easy cleanability - perfect for decorative, homely or biophilic areas.

“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,” said Ballinger.
