A round of applause for C&C Flooring and Altro Wood adhesive-free

27 April 2021

Altro Wood adhesive-free has been named a finalist in the 2021 CFJ/CFA Awards in the category Flooring Healthcare, in partnership with C&C Flooring for the installation at The Lawns care home in Gloucestershire. The winners of the awards will be announced at the CFJ/CFA Awards, to be held at Coombe Abbey in September.

C&C Flooring was selected to install the new Altro flooring at The Lawns in the ground floor communal areas. Roo Williams from C&C Flooring wanted to ensure adhesive-associated odours were kept to a minimum and the installation was achieved quickly. Altro Wood adhesive-free in Urban Cherry was chosen for the selected areas, allowing the installation to be completed in half the normal time of an adhered floor. The installation also took into consideration the residents, helping them feel at ease in their environment and reducing odours and disruption.

Altro Wood adhesive-free, which was launched in 2020, incorporates our award-winning, time-saving, cost-saving, disruption-busting technology. With all Altro adhesive-free floors installations can be up and ready quickly, letting everyone get back to normal with minimal interruption.

Roo Williams, Managing Director, C&C Flooring said: “We have used other Altro adhesive free floors for a few years now, and the new Altro Wood adhesive-free product is fantastic. It looks great … and it complements the care home perfectly.

“We are delighted to be finalists in the awards with Altro for such a great product and a lovely installation that the customer was thrilled with.”
