Student accommodation inspires with Array carpet

Students living in the Riverside apartments in Salford are guaranteed a bright start to their day after Array carpet tiles from Heckmondwike FB were specified for the development’s corridors. 

The carpet was specified by HVB Flooring to refurbish the four storey development, which aims to set a new standard for student living in the North West.

HVB Flooring carefully selected a different Array colour for each level, which included Red and Blue, as well as the new colours Peacock and Marble, to create a striking interior to the building. Complementary Broadrib colours were used alongside Array to give the interior of the apartment block a bright, welcoming feel. Blocks of colour were also used to highlight the location of the lift.

All 50 apartments in the development will now be carpeted with Array to meet the standard set by the new corridor flooring.

Sharni Verity, Marketing Executive at Heckmondwike FB, said: “Array is becoming increasingly popular for student accommodation as it offers stunning aesthetics, as well as the durability and performance of our fibre bonded carpet.  The wide range of colours now available in the Array range mean that some really inspiring designs can be created.”

Array can be installed quickly and easily, which was essential to this development as the refurbishment took place during term time, when the flats were occupied.

Lee Rawsthorne, Director of HVB Flooring, said: “We have specified Array on many projects before, due to its high level of aesthetics and outstanding properties. It was the perfect choice for the corridors and will look great in each of the rooms, too.”

As part of Heckmondwike FB’s Creative Flooring range, Array represents the perfect opportunity for specifiers, designers and flooring contractors to create individual designs for a wide variety of residential flooring applications.

Like all Heckmondwike’s products, Array carpet tiles can be cut on-site without the risk of fraying. The tiles offer antistatic and anti-slip performance, excellent acoustic properties to help reduce noise levels, as well as offering excellent thermal performance.

Array carpet tiles are British-made and provide outstanding performance, as well as being backed by a 10 year limited wear warranty, which means they can be specified in complete confidence.
