Rail - trains and trams

The Altro site

You're on the right track

Altro Transport safety flooring has a great track record.  We work with big name operators and OEMs, transport designers, leasing companies and refurbishers throughout the world.

We have a range of Altro Transport products for trains and trams, and have a long heritage as part of the highly successful Altro Group – a family owned UK company founded in 1919 and operating across Europe, the Americas, Australia, Asia and Africa.

Clear on compliance

  • the Altro Transport System products for rail meet the British Standard Rail BS6853 (either 1a or 1b)
  • Altro Transflor Momentum and Altro Transflor Tungsten are compliant to EN45545 for fire, smoke and toxicity and achieve a class HL2
  • we are members of the Confederation of Passenger Transport and LinkUp accredited

Choose a durable, quality safety floor

We offer lightweight slip-resistant PVC, acrylic-PVC hybrid and acrylic safety flooring. We're passionate about safety and hygiene, so Altro Transport rail products:

  • come in 2 metre widths and a choice of 2mm or heavy-duty 2.5mm thicknesses on most ranges
  • provide a Pendulum Test Value ≥ 36  in both wet and dry conditions or DIN 51130  R10  or R11 slip resistance rating to  enhance staff and passenger safety
  • have lifetime sustained slip resistance
  • incorporate slip-resistant minerals throughout the entire thickness from surface to base and keep your passengers and staff safe, even in wet conditions – which is something rubber flooring can't do

Altro Transport flooring solutions are strong yet flexible enough to fit into the tightest corners and once welded, have the ability to protect from water ingress and subfloor damage in addition to surface stain resistance.

Quality assurance

We offer a minimum 10 year warranty on our three key products backed by full Altro Assurance of Customer Satisfaction for the lifetime of the product giving you peace of mind that our flooring can stand the test of time.

With worldwide sales in commercial, industrial and transport markets, we are committed to a uniform quality management system compliant with BS EN ISO 9001:2008. And we've tested our products in working trains and under aggressive laboratory conditions so you can meet your duty of care to your staff and passengers.

A splash of colour

Choose a plain or chipped design from our extensive colour palettes which work well in the main saloon as well as toilet, vestibule and buffet car areas. Alternatively, customise your own design options* with our designers for bespoke corporate or vibrant colours to enhance passenger experience. We even do laser-cut logos* to fit your individual needs and complement interior aesthetics.  (*if you're interested in these bespoke options please call us to discuss)

All the bells and whistles

To help you create a complete hygienic system we offer a full range of accessories including adhesives, colour-coordinated weld rods and sealants, nosing, trims and mouldings.  

The perfect fit

All our rail products are lightweight, easy to install and maintain. To make installing super easy we also offer a pre-cut service which helps return rolling stock to service quickly and have bespoke product lengths to suit your needs. Our experts are always on hand to help, providing information and training on detailing techniques like perfectly sealed corners and steps to prevent water ingress and subfloor damage.

Cleaning and maintenance

To combat things like stains from food and drink, salt and dirt it's important that the cleaning regime is easy and frequent. Altro Transport safety flooring provides a robust, hardwearing surface that resists stains, odours and chemicals for better hygiene and all our products for rail have Altro Easyclean Original Technology for a lasting attractive appearance and savings in time and cleaning costs.
