Following the installation of ten outdoor educational pods and an extension to the residential blocks at their Ullswater centre, the Outward Bound Trust called upon Forbo Flooring Systems to come up with an integrated flooring solution that would withstand the high footfall the centre receives on a daily basis.
In order to help stop dirt and moisture from entering the building from the get go, Forbo’s Coral Classic textile entrance flooring system has been installed in the building’s corridors. Independent testing has shown that by stopping up to 95% of walked in dirt and moisture, Coral reduces the time spent cleaning the building's other floor coverings by up to 65%.Ideal for the Trust, who rely solely on funding, as it means that they can save money on cleaning bills.
The popular adventure centre also recently extended its accommodation to allow more young people to enjoy the facilities. Due to the need for a quick turnaround after guests leave and new ones arrive, the Trust needed a floor covering that would be easy to clean and maintain. Forbo’s Flotex offered the perfect solution as, after getting wet it dries within a four-hour window– and so it was installed throughout in the vibrant Grape and Moss colourways to bring a splash of colour to the rooms. Flotex is also the only textile flooring covering to be Allergy UK approved as, with the correct cleaning and maintenance regime, it won't harbour dust mites, contributing to a better indoor environment for all who use the facilities.
