Flooring transforms waiting area at Torbay Hospital
Altro Orchestra smooth flooring has been used to transform the eye clinic at Torbay Hospital.
The flooring, ideal for areas where comfort and sound reduction are important, was used to replace old carpet tiles that were no longer suitable.
The estates building supervisor worked closely with and was fully supported by Altro to choose the right product for the clinic.
It was installed by Roberts Flooring in two contrasting colours, Altro Orchestra ‘Bassoon’ and Altro Orchestra ‘Soul’.
Paul Gaunt, building maintenance manager at Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust, said: “The waiting area now benefits from a more-professional look with improved natural light using the two colours. Altro Orchestra is really easy to clean and can be machine cleaned.”
2.85mm Altro Orchestra has been engineered with low residual indentation to facilitate the flexible use of equipment and furniture, including hospital beds.
At the same time, the integrated impact sound insulation system cuts impact sound by up to 15dB.
