London Wetland Centre
Karndean 4.5mm loose laid vinyl planks
Opened in the year 2000, The WWT Wetland Centre is a conservation area in Barnes, which provides a peaceful oasis for both wildlife and people in the heart of West London.
Ajax Flooring has completed many flooring projects for the Wetland Centre. The Hide, the Kitchen, the Shop, the Conservatory, and the staircases.
200m2 of Karndean 250mm x 1500mm looselay longboard vinyl planks, with a Natural Oak colour, were laid onto the Conservatory and staircase. This was an ideal solution for laying over existing hard floors, with little or no need for adhesives. The process can be completed extremely quickly and economically without compromising quality.
