WanabiWood Flooring’s innovative EchoWood Vinyl product range was installed at an upmarket apartment block in Sandton.

Residents required a more sustainable, modern environment, which is why WanabiWood Flooring’s eco-friendly product was specified for the revamp. The refurbishment, which started mid 2015, was done prior to the tenants moving in and the project was completed in August 2016.

This flooring also met the makeover requirements for flooring with a luxurious finish that is water-resistant, durable and easy to clean and maintain. The product was specified in Sahara Sand Luxury Glue Down for light commercial and residential applications as well as Premium Glue Down for commercial and residential applications. Sahara Sand is also the company’s top seller. The colour adds a natural, elegant and wooden feel to interior spaces and offers the eco-conscious, cost-effective solution needed for the project.

The installers were able to meet the deadlines because the EchoWood range can be installed on top of current surfaces and also thanks to the fact that the company has sufficient stock holding across the country. This meant that the existing tiles didn’t have to be removed before the new flooring upgrade could take place and that nobody was inconvenienced during the installation. WanabiWood Flooring’s product was installed in all the corridors of the apartment block as well as in the individual apartments.

The transformation of the upmarket apartment block was well received by the tenants. Not only is the value of the building increased, but the aesthetics are on par with what one would expect from a luxury apartment block in one of South Africa’s most prosperous business hubs.

The EchoWood Vinyl product range comes with a 10 year warranty in residential and light commercial installations. The flooring is ISO14001, ISO9001 and Green Building Council of South Africa accredited, 100% recycla¬ble and is made from 67% post-consumer waste vinyl. Apartment owners are also able to save on heating costs because the high thermal conductivity and improved insulation of the vinyl prevents cold escaping from the subfloor below, adding a warm, soft surface that saves energy.

“WanabiWood Flooring is proud to be associated with this upmarket apartment block project in Sandton. The revamp was a huge success and we are sure that the owners are happy with their new, modern and sophisticated flooring and finishes,” comments Renalde Pretorius, Founder and CEO of WanabiWood Flooring.
