Flooring in nursing homes - Danfloor
SPRINGFIELD Healthcare’s Chocolate Works Care Village is housed in the former headquarters of the world-renowned Terry’s of York chocolate factory and offers residential, nursing and dementia care.
Various Danfloor products were selected by Springfield and installed by MG Flooring and Building. Equinox Tones Beige was fitted throughout the bedroom suites and apartments and then a range of colours from Equinox and Equinox Tones were used in the communal lounges, cinema room and corridors.
‘We selected the Equinox Collection due to the fantastic choice of colours and the noted durability of the product,’ explains Sally Rasmussen, head of marketing and communications for Springfield Healthcare.
‘We also liked the fact it has an antimicrobial coating which helps the care centre with their infection control processes. With the natural high ceilings throughout the building the carpets also help to reduce sound reverberation which ultimately assists with creating a calm and therapeutic environment for our residents.
‘The modern and stylish environment enhances the natural features of the striking building and the carpet is proving a very good choice offering several performance features including: appearance retention, spill safe and easy to clean yarns; antimicrobial yarn treatment; and naturally sound absorbent.’
