Maple reclaimed parquet in the cinema!

Maple reclaimed parquet in the public areas of a new cinema just built:
The Everyman Cinema, at the new Trinity Shopping Centre, Leeds.

Start of the laying process
These photos show the foyer and gallery of a cinema recently expertly fitted by 4D Contract Flooring. The flooring used was our maple reclaimed parquet block . The blocks supplied by us all had a carpet adhesive on the surface and had to be cleaned back without looking too 'perfect' for the designers. That is no mean feat when you start with glue on the faces! However 4D did it and it looks amazing.

Subtle lighting really works well with this finish
This covered a large area of about 250 sq m and the results are brilliant. The gallery has a warm and stylish feel which we hope the cinema-goers will appreciate when they get a chance to visit.

It really does prove that with some confidence and expertise you can get a new life from even the most unlikely looking blocks. All credit to those involved for having the imagination and tenacity to turn the vision into a reality and give more people a chance to see what a great material reclaimed parquet can be.
