Silentflor flooring improves acoustics at Newport primary school
Concrete effect Silentflor acoustic sheet vinyl flooring was chosen to refurbish the reception area at St Andrew’s Primary School in Newport, South Wales.
Installed by Cardiff-based Parker Flooring Supplies, 84mē of Silentflor flooring in the Dark Grey Concrete design was fitted in the primary school’s reception, meeting room and office areas. This project was headed up by facilities management and contract services provider Newport Norse.
Andrew Herrington, Architectural Designer at Newport Norse, comments, “The project brief was to provide a modern and inspiring reception to reflect the aspirations of the head teacher to provide the best environment for the parents and children to be in. The flooring had to be both hard wearing and help with acoustics. The original supplier was unable to provide a suitable product, but a call to Polyflor who hold large amounts of stock were able to fulfil the requirements within a very tight timeframe.”
Made in the UK, the Silentflor range includes 36 stunning designs in a 3.7mm gauge and 0.65mm wear layer sheet format. The collection’s 8 contemporary concrete and 12 abstract designs have been specifically developed to achieve a modern on-trend look.
