FE college and University Technical College workshops

Further Education colleges, University Technical Colleges - motor vehicle workshops, engineering workshops, product design workshops, wet trade workshops, electrical workshops, plastering workshops, plumbing workshops, brick laying workshops

These areas demand tough flooring and walling to withstand impact from heavy objects along with frequent moving of lab stools and equipment. Point loading resistance, resilience and durability are essential. 

A combination of wet and dry contaminants means you also need sustained slip, chemical and staining resistance.

Depending on the levels of resistance required and the type of activity, either safety or resin flooring is a good choice, and can be combined with hygienic wall cladding.


Chemical, stain and biological resistance

Resistance to inorganic and organic chemicals, spillages and wastes is essential. 

Altro safety flooring and Altro resin flooring are coveable, conformable to drain outlets and offer excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and most staining. Combine these with Altro Whiterock hygienic, impact-resistant wall cladding.


You need to protect your environment with long-term resistance to wear, abrasion, point loading and impact, especially from wheeled equipment and the legs of stools and chairs.

Heavy duty, resilient 2.5mm, slip-resistant Altro safety flooring or resins are warrantied for up to 15 years.

Combine your flooring with Altro Whiterock impact-resistant wall cladding.


Easy cleaning of floors, walls and doors to the highest standards is important, along with low cost, easy maintenance.

We offer safety flooring which is impervious, coveable and compatible with drainage. It features Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology, proven to provide unrivalled low dirt pick-up for improved long-term cleanability.

Hygienic, impervious, impact-resistant Altro Whiterock wall cladding, doorsets and ceiling systems with welded joints and thermoformed corners are easy to maintain and can be hosed down if necessary.


Sustained slip-resistance to meet Health and Safety standards and keep all users safe underfoot is vital.

To maintain a safe environment, workshops and labs should be joint-free and able to  withstand heavy point-loading and cutting.

Altro safety flooring offers lifetime sustained slip-resistance of up to 20 years.

Altro resins will also provide safety in the toughest environments.

Static interference

You need to protect your specialist facilities that house delicate electronic or computer assemblies from static.

Static-dissipative options are available in  Altro safety flooring or Altro resin flooring.
