Some 200m2 of Concept Wood Santiago flooring from Itec Contract Flooring has been installed throughout the bedrooms and corridors of Ford House Care Home, transforming the interior into a bright and welcoming space with a stylish, realistic wood look that is durable and easily maintained.
When it came to the choice of flooring to be specified, Itec Concept Wood flooring fitted the bill in terms of style and function. The Concept Wood collection offers a extensive selection of authentic and chic wood decors capturing a natural wood grain look and texture, from which Santiago was chosen for its warm and radiant chocolate tones and light reflecting properties that entirely suited the light and airy décor and welcoming feel in the care home.
Combined with an attractive appearance, the quality of the Itec flooring was key to its specification. Essential for a healthcare setting, the surface PUR wear layer offers excellent resistance to staining and chemicals, making it durable enough to withstand regular cleaning to help maintain a clean and hygienic environment. Classed as suitable for heavy domestic and commercial uses, Concept Wood offers excellent resistance against everyday wear, scratches and abrasions as well as indentation from furniture legs.
As Kevin Lawrence of Flawless Furnishings, specifier of the project comments: “The brief from Ford House contained a stringent set of requirements for the new flooring. The quality of the Itec Concept Wood product exceeded these demands at an extremely competitive price, and was readily available in a diverse choice of excellent colours.”
Available from stock, Concept Wood is straightforward to fit spelling convenient installations for specifiers requiring rapid access to flooring supplies. Kevin continues: “The installation went extremely smoothly and to plan, giving Ford House the opportunity to use the finished rooms as working show areas to promote their services to potential residents. Both staff and residents are delighted with the final result, which offers the realistic good looks of a wooden floor but with the practicality of easy maintenance afforded by the PUR surface layer.”
Based on the impressive performance of Santiago, further Concept Wood flooring is due to be installed in the conservatory of the care home in the near future.
