Providing residents with a welcoming wood-look floor and ensuring maximum practicality for the busy staff, some 700m2 of Concept Wood resilient flooring from Itec Contract Floors now covers the bedrooms, corridors and communal spaces of the Burges House nursing home in Cardiff, Wales, following an extensive refurbishment project.
With the installation overseen by contractors Cameron Butcher, specialists in managing refurbishments in care home locations, Concept Wood in colourway Aspin 749 has transformed Burges House into a warm and homely environment. As Margaret Harris, manager at Burges House, explains, the welcoming wood quality of the floor was a major factor in its specification:
“We are a long-established nursing home that prides itself on providing residents with the best possible care to ensure that they feel safe. Our aim is to make the transition from independent to assisted living as smooth as possible, and when the time came to choose new flooring it made sense to select a design that would contribute to our friendly and caring atmosphere. Stark and clinical styles reminiscent of medial facilities were therefore immediately rejected, and when we came across Concept Wood Aspin 749 from Itec we instantly knew that it was the right choice. In a rich oak colour, the floor has the warm appeal that is so important for our home.”
Not only providing a pleasing aesthetic, Concept Wood Aspin 749 delivers exceptional performance benefits and can therefore stand up to the demands of a busy care home environment. Rated as suitable for industrial heavy use, the floor is very durable and is treated with HyperGuard+® PUR for extra protection. Very simple to keep clean, Concept Wood Aspin 749 is the ideal choice for sensitive healthcare environments where spillages regularly occur.
“Our staff have to deal with a variety of spills throughout the day, from food on the floors of the dining area to personal accidents in the living quarters, so it is absolutely vital that any flooring we use is easy to maintain,” continues Margaret Harris. “The easy cleanability of Concept Wood Aspin 749 means that staff members can quickly and discreetly mop up any spillages that do occur, without having to wait for specialist cleaners.”
Concept Wood Aspin 749 also provides R10 slip restraint for complete peace of mind.
