Woodstock Nursing Home

A home-like and hassle-free flooring choice

Altro Wood adhesive-free

The bedroom and adjacent flooring at Coate Water Care’s Woodstock Nursing Home in Gloucester, UK was heavily worn and in need of replacing. “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,” explained Trudy Glassonbury, Nursing Home Manager.

The nursing home team consulted with local contractor C&C Flooring, speaking with them extensively to discuss their facility’s requirements. Trudy continued: “C&C Flooring recommended the new Altro Wood adhesive-free flooring, because it could be installed 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 ensuites we were refurbishing without prolonged disruption to residents. It took far less time than an adhered flooring would have taken. There was no need to remove the old flooring or deal with a longer 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 14dB sound reduction and our Altro one in a million slip-resistance reassurance, this range 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.
