These tough locations require tough solutions offering slip-resistance, cleanability and comfort to all users, many of whom can spend hours on their feet each day. You therefore need flooring, wall cladding and ceilings with grout-free jointing which are compatible with drainage outlets. You may also require resistance to extremes of temperature.

You can use our varieties of colours and designs to create a pleasant environment for all users.

Aesthetics

A welcoming, relaxing atmosphere is needed to reduce stress and promote healing, with clear wayfinding and signage.

Our products are designed by industry experts in consultation with customers worldwide to offer safety flooring ranges of up to 42 standard colours and wall cladding of up to 26. Bespoke options are available. Use them in combination to satisfy your need for aesthetic impact and variety. You can also digitally print your own designs onto wall cladding to personalise the environment in eating areas.

Chemical, stain and biological resistance

Resistance to chemicals, spillages and wastes is essential. 

Our safety flooring and resins offer excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and most staining. Combine these with Altro Whiterock hygienic, impact-resistant wall cladding systems.

Durability

To protect your environment, you need long-term resistance to wear, abrasion, point loading and impact, especially from wheeled equipment.

Heavy duty, slip-resistant 3mm Altro safety flooring and Altro PU and epoxy resin screed flooring offer excellent resistance to point loading and impact and are warrantied for up to 15 years.  Altro Whiterock impact-resistant wall cladding is warrantied for up to 20 years.

Food safety

A food safety programme is needed to protect your staff and patients and contribute to your compliance requirements.

HACCP endorses the use of Altro safety flooring and Altro Whiterock wall cladding as coverings suitable for use in food processing and food handling environments for businesses operating a HACCP based food safety programme.

Hygiene

Easy cleaning and wash-down of flooring, walling, doorsets and ceilings to the highest standards of hygiene are vital, along with low cost and easy maintenance.

We offer impervious, coveable Altro safety flooring ranges for food preparation and eating areas, with Altro Easyclean Technology, including PUR options proven to provide unrivalled low dirt pick-up for improved long-term cleanability.

PU and epoxy resin flooring is seamless and impervious, easy to clean and absorbs no water

Hygienic, impervious, impact-resistant Altro Whiterock wall cladding, doorsets and ceiling systems with welded joints and thermoformed corners offer easy maintenance and can even be hosed down if required.

Design solutions include easy-to-maintain coved wall/floor junctions and integral drainage for wet areas.

Safety

In wet, greasy conditions where frequent spillage is likely, flooring must offer safety underfoot and meet Health and Safety standards.

Altro 2.5 and 3mm safety flooring is ideally suited to commercial kitchens, boasting Altro’s highest ratings for sustained slip-resistance.  Install it in combination with other Altro safety flooring ranges in eating areas.

We also offer resin flooring with slip-resistance.

Temperature

Stability in flooring and wall cladding is needed in fluctuating temperatures.

Impervious safety flooring and Altro Whiterock wall cladding (which is fully bonded to the wall) offer welded / sealed joints and Altro PU and epoxy resins are seamless for product stability.
