Renovating homes

In all care homes, disturbing residents for renovations can cause anxiety for residents and difficulties for staff. We know that the stress of moving out of a familiar room can affect some residents badly, to the point where they attempt to destroy their surroundings, risking injury as well as trauma.

We offer adhesive-free floors, which enable a quick turnaround, minimising the amount of time that room is out of action.

Because these products are adhesive-free, there are no associated odours which could cause residents, particularly those with dementia or autism, distress. We have a safety option, Altro XpressLay which, with a palette of 42 colours, can be matched to, or complement, Altro Walkway and Altro Pisces. We also offer Altro Cantata, a floor for areas that do not need enhanced slip resistance available in 16 soft-look shades. This offer modern, homely design choices for areas within residential homes where the risk of a slip is low, with all the benefits of an adhesive-free floor.
