Two projects undergo a significant transformation after the installation of vinyl flooring.

When it comes to flooring in both the hospitality and healthcare sectors, WanabiWood EchoWood Luxury Vinyl Planks (LVP) are a popular choice as they provide considerable benefits.

Without the hassles and costs associated with maintaining wooden flooring, EchoWood LVP are an eco-friendly, durable, sustainable flooring option for high traffic areas due to the fact that it has the ability to reduce noise, are stain and water resistant, slip resistant for client and patients safety and are backed by fantastic commercial warranties.
Life Wilgers Hospital chose EchoWood’s Glue Down floors as the healthier flooring choice due to the floor’s antibacterial NanoSilver Technology which prevents the build-up of harmful bacteria, viruses and mould. The original hospital tiles were worn, scratched and cracked and needed replacing. Without any additional mess or dust and a time saving method of adhesive and self-leveling screed, the vinyl planks were installed without an underlay and over the prepared existing tiles, for a perfect installation and finish without any shifting, lifting or bumps.

The clever transformation of the hospital’s interior includes a wraparound effect of EchoWood’s Glue Down planks with a continuous vinyl floor flowing through from the reception area from the floor to the surrounding walls and up into the double volume ceilings, creating a beautiful welcoming and warm space.

Protea Hotel’s Hunters Rest was an equally successful installation extending throughout the hotels reception area, interleading passages, lounge, restaurant and bedroom areas, creating flowing, open spaces and elegance to the hotels’ interior space.

For exterior flooring solutions, EchoDeck composite decking and tiles are also available as an alternative to wooden decking, for an equally impressive, cost effective and maintenance free, sustainable choice.

As one of the leading importers of sustainable flooring to both residential and commercial sectors in South Africa and abroad, WanabiWood’s commitment, support and membership with the South African Wood, Laminate and Flooring Association (SAWLFA), as well as the Green Building Councils’ ‘Green Builder’ product range, contributes to their product lines’ great success.

The company is dedicated to the development of innovative flooring that captures the beauty, healthy living and elegance of natural looking wood, without having a negative impact on the sustainability of our forests.
