Observatory Retirement Village

Altro Wood Safety

Observatory Village was established when the locals noticed a growing need for care and living options for the elderly in the community.

The Waitaki District has a beautiful landcape of mountains, lakes, valleys, farmland and coastline. To tie in with the natural ambience of the village’s location, Altro Wood Safety was chosen to complete the new development.

When you want to create a homely, comforting and familiar look but you don’t want to compromise on safety,

Altro Wood Safety is ideal. The range offers 20 wood-look designs, including classic, contemporary classic and on-trend.

Altro Wood Safety works well with contemporary décor such as metal and glass areas, mood lighting, vibrant colours and monotone themes.

The flooring features Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology for long term cleanability and easier maintenance.

“We had Altro Wood Safety colour Farmhouse Oak installed throughout the ensuites, serveries, laundries and kitchens of our Oamaru Observatory Village earlier this year. We chose Altro Wood Safety because of its natural timber floorboard appearance, the fact that Farmhouse Oak perfectly matches our furniture and it achieves a R10 level of slip resistance in wet areas. We have been very happy with its performance and the “homely’ feel it provides our residents and the overall Village. As a result, we are planning to install more Altro Wood Safety Farmhouse Oak through these areas in the next stage of our Village development
