Laboratories and workshops

Laboratories and art, craft, design and technology areas, workshops, demonstration rooms

These areas present unique demands on the flooring. They are prone to spillages which can include a combination of wet or dry contaminants; you therefore need sustained slip, chemical and staining resistance.

Lab stools and moveable equipment can take their toll on your floor unless it provides high levels of point loading resistance, resilience and durability. Depending on the levels of resistance required and the type of activity, either safety or resin flooring is a good choice, in combination with hygienic wall cladding for a fully integrated solution.

Acoustics

You need to reduce noise to improve the wellbeing of learners and staff in key areas.

You can combine our safety flooring with acoustic underlay or opt for a resin with acoustic properties.

Aesthetics

You want to create a stimulating environment for learners, staff and visitors.

Our products are designed with industry experts in consultation with customers worldwide to offer you a vast colour choice. They co-ordinate with our wall cladding and you can even digitally print your own designs onto our walling for that extra wow factor.

Chemical, stain and biological resistance

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

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

Durability

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 is warrantied for 15 years and Altro resin for 10 years.

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

Hygiene

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.

Safety

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

You also need R11 rated safety flooring in craft, design and technology areas to protect against such contaminants as oils, grease and soapy water.

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

We have developed an R11 rated 2.5mm safety floor to cope with the demands of craft, design and technology areas.

Static interference

Protection from static is crucial for your specialist facilities that house delicate electronic or computer assemblies

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