Altro Wood adhesive-free creates a home-from-home

“We have used other Altro adhesivefree 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.” - Roo Williams, Managing Director, C&C Flooring


The floor in the main communal areas at The Lawns, a family-run care home in Quedgley, Gloucestershire, was starting to look tired and the manager, Anna Carrier, was worried about infection control, hygiene and cleaning issues. The care home decided the floor needed to be replaced and need to consider a floor that retained the building’s originality and looked warm and homely. It also needed to make the residents feel at ease in their environment whilst also taking into consideration their sensitivity to odours and disruption.


C&C Flooring was selected to install the new Altro flooring at The Lawns in the ground floor circulation areas, dining rooms, lounges and reception. 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.


“We love the new flooring because it’s easy to clean, reduces noise in the building, but mostly the wood effect is lovely, so welcoming. It’s also very comfortable to walk on, and this is so important for our residents. Overall the flooring fits exactly with what we want to achieve.” Anna Carrier

New Altro Wood adhesive-free creates maximum impact with minimum downtime. With 12 colour choices, 14dB sound reduction, a 10-year guarantee and our Altro one in a million slip-resistance reassurance, Altro Wood adhesive-free offers high levels of comfort underfoot providing a safe, durable and decorative solution for busy spaces. Using our award-winning adhesive-free installation method, it can be welded and walked on the same day, and at the end of its life can be removed easily, allowing it to be reused or recycled. Using Altro adhesive-free floors, you can halve installation time compared with a traditional adhered installation. It is ideal for busy public spaces where disruption needs to be minimal, plus there are no associated adhesive odours.

“Installation is so much quicker because we are not waiting for glues to cure before laying and it can go straight down onto the existing floor, so there is minimal disruption for residents.”- Roo Williams, Managing Director, C&C Flooring
