The newly rebranded DoubleTree by Hilton Harrogate Majestic Hotel & Spa, which has just opened in the historic spa town, has specified SpringBond as the underlay of choice in its transformed spa facility. Following a £15m programme of refurbishment throughout the hotel, the Harrogate Spa now has 540 recycled plastic bottles sitting under its carpeted areas.
Used in the relaxation lounge, SpringBond, which is manufactured in Yorkshire, fits with the spa’s desire to incorporate the rich heritage of the region, and bolsters its sustainability credentials as well as improving indoor air quality.
Following approval from four world leading adhesives companies – FBall, Uzin, Ardex and Xchem – SpringBond FR, SpringBond’s heavy contract double stick underlay system, is going from strength to strength in the hospitality and leisure sector.
Launched at the Harrogate Flooring Show and during the INDEX Exhibition in Dubai in September, SpringBond FR is ideal for use in hotels, hospitality and leisure establishments. The revolutionary carpet underlay is available in 7mm for double stick or stretch fit applications and is made from recycled PET plastic bottles (up to 120 per roll) and other single use plastics, offering maximum performance with minimum environmental impact.
James Taylor, Managing Director of SpringBond manufacturer Texfelt added: “SpringBond is a perfect alternative to PU foam; it’s a greener and safer choice when compared to many traditional underlays so is getting the attention of a lot of hotel brands, especially, at the moment, with consumers becoming savvier about brands’ green credentials. We’re in a fortunate position to have such a topical product and are looking forward to demand continuing to increase.”
SpringBond underlay is fully recyclable at the end of its usable life – creating a closed-loop manufacturing cycle – and contains no harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds), promoting better air quality in buildings.
SpringBond is a partner of non-profit organisation Plastic Oceans, which addresses plastic pollution.
