Altro Cantata supports sensory experiences at day care centre

Altro Cantata

“We looked for a floor that was comfortable, cushioning and had a high resistance to indentation from wheelchairs and other aids. Altro Cantata met all the criteria.”

Challenge

Linden is a day care centre for adults with complex needs, and differing disabilities. The care centre specialises in providing sensory stimulation, fine motor skills training and communication, providing a multi-sensory approach to give disabled people a meaningful everyday life. The care centre had relocated to new premises which required complete renovation and since much of the care is carried out at floor level, high demands were placed on the durability, appearance, and comfort of the new floor.

Approach

At Linden, a lot of focus has been placed on multi-sensory stimulation. This provides residents with home from home experiences that include cooking, using the jacuzzi bath, receiving massages, and therapy or simply playing in the games room. Linden was also looking for a floor with sustainable credentials that was quick to install, avoiding the need to shut down key areas.

Solution

Altro Cantata was selected for benefits including 14dB impact sound reduction and comfort for seated and standing activities. Altro Cantata’s adhesive-free installation technology also provided a quick installation with minimum downtime.

“Altro Cantata is a very nice floor to work with, especially since it is adhesive-free. The chosen floors were in nice shades that are pleasing to the eye.”
