Westcotes Flooring were proud to be working alongside Clegg Construction to install the flooring on this Design & Build Scheme. The hospital offers 56 bedrooms and supported living units to female patients. The three storey building contains four wards and offers treatment to cover a spectrum from Female PICU, Female Personality Disorder through to Female Step-Down ‘locked’ rehabilitation.

With both the environment and BREEAM in mind, Danfloors Equinox Tones Carpet was chosen, which offers outstanding performance, superior styling and a comprehensive warranty making it suitable for flooring applications within healthcare. Safety flooring was a must for the Cygnet Health project and Altro Aquarius, a specialist solution developed specifically for use in wet and dry areas, for shoe and barefoot use ,was ideal for this environment which sees doctors, other staff and visitors plus patients in and out of showers with bare feet.

Altro Aquarius is an innovative flooring suitable for any type of shoe, including hard and soft soled, rubber and trainers, as well as bare feet. Altro Aquarius revolutionises product selection. Users not longer have to assess the risk of slipping to those in shoes or barefoot and whether to install studded or standard safety flooring. Altro Aquarius caters for all these requirements, with one product that can eliminate the risk.
