Lightmoor Village Primary School

Doing more to help protect against bugs and breakages

When Lightmoor Village Primary School opened its doors for the very first time this term, excited pupils walked, ran and skipped along to join new classmates. Thanks to the installation of Altro's safety flooring, there weren't any slips or trips on the way.

The school, newly built as part of a £3.5 million school and housing development project in Telford, welcomed 210 pupils to its modern building consisting of seven class rooms, social play areas, multi-use games area and school hall.

Altro, the world leading manufacturer of safety flooring, supplied a variety of flooring products all offering excellent slip resistance, for the school's classrooms, shower areas, changing areas, kitchen and gym hall.

In the classrooms Altro Walkway 20 was installed. It offers excellent durability and has high impact resistance, making it ideal for coping with the wear and tear of pupils and the movement of desks and chairs. It also benefits from Altro Easyclean™ Technolog making it easier to clean and ensuring it stays looking its best for longer. It also incorporates a bacteriostat for enhanced hygiene.

Within the kitchen the likelihood of spilled food or chemicals is greater and the need for hygiene is paramount, therefore Altro Stronghold 30 was specified as the flooring solution. The 3mm thick safety flooring contains a bacteriostat, making it ideal for food preparation areas. It is comfortable to walk on and combines excellent under-foot security with long-term durability and ease of cleaning.

With potential for slips and trips, the flooring in the new shower areas needed to be carefully considered. Altro Marine 20, the company's popular bare foot safety flooring, was installed.

In the changing areas, the original slip-resistant safety floor, Altro Classic X25, was laid.

For the multi-use games hall, Altro Mondosport Wood was laid. This hard-working, cost-effective flooring combines a wood effect with the durability and slip resistance of a safety floor. It also boasts excellent resilience, shock absorption and ease of maintenance.

"We've installed hundreds of metres of Altro's products over the years and as ever the installation went very well. Altro don't just provide the products suitable to the various applications, but they provide excellent service and delivery too." Brian Wells, Contract Manager at Commercial Flooring
