High school keeps the faith

Allerton High School in Leeds has specified an exciting new integrated carpet from Heckmondwike FB for its multi-faith room.

The school required a bespoke design that featured the co-ordinates of a compass to denote the direction for prayer, integrating purple lettering within green carpet to reflect the colour of the school’s logo.

Interserve FM contacted flooring contractor Fresco of Leeds which recommended Diamond in Willow from Heckmondwike FB, with purple lettering in Supacord to complement the Supacord tiles that are widely used in other areas of the school.

Phil Andrews, Business Manager at Allerton High School, said: “We previously had vinyl flooring in the multi-faith room, but unfortunately the vinyl kept peeling away, due to the underfloor heating. We discussed with our flooring contractor Fresco that we wanted carpet but that it needed the compass points integrated within it.  Fresco recommended Heckmondwike FB who were able to create the bespoke design, which looks great!”
