OWING to continued faults and repairs with the atrium floor at The Aylesbury Vale Academy, the facilities manager, Annie Bacchus, asked Folkspur Flooring to find a solution to resolve the issues. The academy needed a new floor that was hardwearing, slip-resistant, easy-to-clean, and not going to fail as the previous flooring had.
Says Tom James, managing director, Folkspur Flooring: ‘We were approached by an existing customer, Aylesbury Vale Academy, to resolve a problem floor in the school atrium. The requirements were for a slip-resistant, hardwearing, and easy-to-clean floor, as the area is used for dining and subject to heavy traffic.
‘Owing to the problem subfloor the system had to be a floating floor. We considered the many floating floor systems on the market and having had previous experience of Invictus products, and working with Mark Darnbrough over many years, we decided Invictus Maximus Rigid Click fitted the school’s needs perfectly. We were pleased to recommend the product, and with the resulting floor with matching scotias’.’
Says Annie Bacchus: ‘All I can say is the difference is outstanding; it’s a high quality, amazing looking floor that has made such an improvement to the facility. Staff that have seen it so far have commented on how great it looks, I’m sure the students will feel the same!’
