Pupils at a primary school in Croydon, South London, are guaranteed to have a bright start to their day after Supacord fibre bonded carpet and tiles from Heckmondwike FB were specified for the school’s classrooms, nursery, library, corridors and stairs.

The school’s carpets feature a wide range of colours including blue, orange, graphite, yellow and green, and a variety of inspirational designs, such as the checkered pattern in the main corridor. The carpet designs can be found across the whole of the existing school, its new build addition and its recent new build extension.

Abby Chandler, Commercial Manager for Heckmondwike FB, said: “We are delighted to have been able to help this primary school to create a positive learning environment throughout the whole building through effective use of colour. Our Supacord range is offered with an extensive choice of colours, which gave the school huge scope to create inspiring carpet designs.”

Abby Chandler continues: “Supacord is a very popular choice with schools, as it is extremely robust and helps create the aesthetics that they are looking for.  Classroom design has been found to be fundamentally important in inspiring pupils and helping to raise their attainment levels and choosing the right carpet is an important part of this.”Croydon Primary 2

The project’s architect was NPS Group and Paragon Flooring of Croydon installed the carpet, which was specified by the London Borough of Sutton.

Available in a choice of 42 colours, Supacord is a popular choice for school carpet where aesthetics are important.  The school will benefit from the durability of Supacord, which is renowned in the education sector, where it is vital that floor coverings are able to withstand heavy wear and tear, making it ideal for classroom carpet.  Supacord is also popular where sustainability is important, as it has been assessed by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and has gained a BRE Global A+ environmental rating for use in school buildings, offices and retail outlets.
