Acorn Lodge Care Home East Grinstead
Acorn Lodge proprietor Mr Unmar chose Universal Tones Impervious backed carpet from the ample range of JHS contract carpets available. He commented that the quality, value for money and attractive appearance were all considerations when deciding to use a JHS product.
Dating back to around 1920 and set within 3.5 acres this pleasantly situated residential home has recently benefited from a two storey extension. The existing rooms are also being updated. Considerations for internal décor included the need for a durable yet aesthetically pleasing carpet. Acorn Lodge specializes in dementia care and can accommodate up to 40 residents.
A product designed to repel moisture and that can be bleach cleaned. Universal Tones is 100% polypropylene with an Impervious foam backing and therefore fully meets these requirements. It also benefits from a 10 year guarantee.
The proprietor chose ‘Soft Mauve’ from the many available shades within the Universal range. This neutral earthy colour compliments the light wall colouring and will match most furniture choices, thus enhancing the appeal of the environment.
The Universal range is contained within a group of around 20 x products designed specifically for use within environments where high levels of sanitation are required (such as hospitals and care homes) This particular range benefits from the addition of an anti-microbial treatment which inhibits the occurrence of bacteria and fungi.
An Impervious gel or foam layer protects the sub floor from damage and staining whilst repelling moisture. Polypropylene or solution dyed nylon ensures durable and easy to clean surfaces.
