THANKS to HECKMONDWIKE, St Andrew’s School, Oswaldtwistle in Lancashire, Pure Care carpet in its new library bus, creating an environment the company says is perfect for pupils to enjoy reading.
The static library bus at St Andrew’s School, was gifted to the school by a parent who works for Moving People Ltd and refurbished by B&G Sears Ltd of Blackburn. Michelle Burton, Sales Manager from flooring contractor Rishton Flooring, who managed the carpet installation for the bus said: ‘This was such an unusual and fun project, but the challenges for the flooring solution were considerable; high footfall, environmental contamination (mud/grass etc.) and fluctuations in temperature all meant that the carpet had to be very durable. But given that the bus was also a learning environment for young children, the school wanted a flooring solution that was colourful, contemporary and soft underfoot.‘
Heckmondwike’s Pure Care reportedly offered the durability and visual appeal needed for this project. Available in 8 colours, Pure Care is said to offer high stain resistance and still feel comfortable, essential with young children. St Andrew’s was also keen to reflect its school colours in its choice of flooring for the library bus, so Pure Care in ‘Sapphire’ was chosen.
Pure Care and Total Care are Heckmondwike’s tufted carpet solutions; they’re suitable for educational establishments, whether in classrooms, corridors or school office areas. Available in different pile weights, both types of carpet are said to feature a fully impervious backing. They are also claimed to meet all relevant flammability tests and offer antistatic properties.
