Oldham Sixth Gets Creative

17 July 2017 | Updated 01 January 1970

The Oldham Sixth Form College has laid carpet tiles from Heckmondwike’s Creative range in its Student Support Hub.

750sq.m of Array carpet tiles  in black were chosen, for aesthetics and durability.

David Crossland, Facilities Manager at Oldham College said: “We were looking for an affordable tile with a designer feel that had good aesthetics but would also be very hardwearing. We chose black as a robust, neutral colour and are really pleased with the result.”

Jeremy Broadhead, Commercial Manager at Heckmondwike, said: “Array was a great choice.  It’s a really hardwearing carpet that is suitable for heavy traffic areas and will retain its appearance for years.”

Heckmondwike’s Array carpet tile range features a mid-width rib design and a charcoal background enhanced with a subtle linear pattern. The range comprises 12 colour options including peacock, blue, black, red, lime, purple, magenta, copper, emerald, fuchsia, marble and violet.

As with the rest of Heckmondwike collection, Array carpet tiles offer antistatic and anti-slip properties, along with acoustic and thermal performance.
