Project Spotlight: Back to School with Autex Carpet
With students around Australia heading back to school this week, we would like to take this opportunity to focus this project spotlight on some schools from around the country. Whilst most project spotlights are based on recently installed jobs, the purpose of this editorial is to demonstrate the longevity of the Autex Commercial Carpet ranges.
Covenant Christian School, Belrose
Installation date: 2010
As with all outdoor education areas, high-thoroughfare and extreme weather are important considerations. Therefore, the project brief required the carpet to be high quality, durable, enhance safety as well as being aesthetically pleasing. It was determined that Reef, from the Autex Commercial Carpet range, was the ideal choice. Now, six years on since installation, the carpet has stood up to the high usage as well as the harsh Australian elements and continues to perform like when it was newly installed.
St Ives Primary
Installation date: 2009
The brief stated the carpet was required for the main playground which meant the area had to be accessible for students all year round. Multisport was the ideal solution as it provided the durability, comfort and UV performance required for such an environment. Its non-woven surface means it will stand up to rigorous wear, with no zippering or fraying. Multisport not only enriches the aesthetics when compared with concrete, it enhances the practicality of the space by being cooler to sit on in the summer and warmer in the winter.
The Ponds School
Installation date: 2014
Like most education projects, the brief often involves the challenge of providing a flooring solution that’s durable, but also brings character and practicality to the environment. Avondale, from the Autex commercial range, is one of the most adaptable carpets available. Its durable, fine ribbed finish is complimented by a contemporary colour offering that met all the project requirements. Avondale's easy care and maintenance, durability, ability to get wet and UV performance made it an ideal product for the school's multi-purpose learning space.
