Back of house

Back of house, stairs, lifts

Wear protection, slip-resistance, appearance retention and durability over a long life are real issues in these busy areas. Modern flooring options deliver excellent colour retention and choice, plus long-term ease of maintenance and cleaning. You may need lasting enhanced acoustic performance in certain areas, so you can choose our acoustic flooring or combine our other flooring ranges with an acoustic underlay.

Stair nosings provide additional safety, wear resistance and appearance retention.



Flooring should reduce noise in key areas to improve the well-being of all patients and staff.

For lasting enhanced acoustic performance, choose our acoustic flooring or combine our other flooring ranges with an acoustic underlay.


Colour and design should highlight the stairs’ location and define stair edges.

Combine standard flooring colours to satisfy your need for aesthetic impact and variety. You can contrast the colours of the stairs with the colour of the nosings for enhanced safety. Combine the flooring with the vast colour choice of Altro Whiterock wall cladding systems.
