Warm welcome from carpet tiles

INVISTA Antron carpet fibre, featuring in Hadron carpet tiles from Burmatex, now provides the reception, waiting room and adjoining corridor areas of Bolton Hospice with what’s described as a welcoming floorcovering that embraces the need for durable and easy-to-look-after surface.

Hadron carpet tiles were chosen as part of a refurbishment to the building, with the purple highlights found in the Violet colourway used as an accent to reflect the feature colour found on walls and in furniture.

Inspired by the scientific imagery of particles accelerated in the Large Hadron Collider, the structured loop pile carpet tile features a multi-tonal grey base cloth interspersed with linear flashes of ‘brilliant colour’, a design made possible by Antron Lumena carpet fibre.

‘With a cross-section that reduces the appearance of soiling, alongside a strong and tight molecular structure that stands up to wear and makes it difficult for dirt to stick, Antron Lumena carpet fibre is ideal for use in high-performance carpet tiles such as Burmatex’s Hadron,’ says the company.

‘Solution dyed for permanent stain and fade resistance, providing a carpet designed to withstand heavy traffic while remaining easy to clean, Antron Lumena carpet fibre ensures the Hadron carpet tiles chosen by architecture practice, Good & Tillotson, are suitable for the task.’

Russell Woods, Partner, Good & Tillotson, says: ‘Primarily we wanted to create the right look, but we also needed to consider the durability of the floor chosen. The general impression is excellent and definitely provided the outcome I was looking for.’

Made from 100% Antron Lumena carpet fibre, Burmatex Hadron is available in 17 colours, coordinating with other products from the manufacturer. In this instance, Hadron in Violet was teamed with Burmatex’s Tivoli carpet tile marking seating areas.

Bolton Hospice provides specialist inpatient care, as well as, day hospice, hospice at home and outpatient services for people with life limiting illness in the local area.

Founded in 1987 and operating as an independent charity, the hospice has 18 inpatient bedrooms. The refurbishment was part of the final phase in the charity’s Building for the Future programme, making improvements to the hospice in preparation for the next 25 years of care.
