NEW ALTRO WOOD ADHESIVE FREE SETS A
HIGH STANDARD AT SPECIAL SCHOOL
Brand new Altro Wood adhesive-free
safety flooring has been fitted in Kaimes
Special School, in Edinburgh, setting a
high standard for easy to fit, slip-resistant
and homely surfaces for pupils and sta .
The installation of the new flooring was
part of a wider refurbishment of the school
by the City of Edinburgh Council, and
integral to their drive to reduce sensory
overload in primary and secondary schools by using ‘natural’ neutral colours
A spokesperson from the Interiors team at Edinburgh Council, says: “The
biophilic design principles of bringing nature into schools have been proven to
aid learning, promote calm and improve mood among pupils. Using a woode
ect flooring is a great way to create that atmosphere, and this is why we use
Altro Wood adhesive-free— it’s a beautiful, homely and comfortable surface that
also has very high slip resistance. It ticks all the boxes for us.
“Pupils at Kaimes all have complex
emotional needs and creating a calm,
comfortable space is very important.
Reducing sensory overload and harsh
colours is a vital part of this. We know from
using ranges from the Altro Wood collection
in other schools that this surface can very
e ectively change the mood of a space with
its neutral, warm and natural look.”
