Hospital and care home wet areas

Hospital showers, bathrooms, toilet areas, hydrotherapy pools, ensuite bathrooms
Care home bathrooms, toilet areas, ensuite bathrooms

These areas can be really hazardous to all those who use them, with slip-resistance a key concern. Keeping patients and staff safe can be challenging when floors have a combination of wet and dry areas, and patients are barefoot while staff are wearing shoes.

Impervious safety flooring, wall cladding and ceilings will protect not only the environment but all users too. Our specialist safety flooring offers sustained slip-resistance in wet and dry conditions, for bare skin and footwear alike.

Also important are easy cleanability to minimise maintenance requirements, resistance to staining and resistance to most cleaning chemicals. Finally, an integrated system including welded jointing, coveability and compatibility with drainage is also recommended.


Chemical, stain and biological resistance

You need resistance to inorganic and organic chemicals spillages and waste.

Our safety flooring offers excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and most staining.

Combine it with Altro Whiterock hygienic, impact-resistant wall cladding systems.


Wall cladding, flooring, doorsets and ceilings must be easy to clean and wash/hose down,  and resistant to cleaning chemicals. Low cost, easy maintenance is also required.

We offer impervious, coveable Altro Aquarius safety flooring with Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology, proven to provide unrivalled low dirt pick-up for improved long-term cleanability. It also provides good chemical and staining resistance.

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, imperviously tanked, coved wall/floor junctions and integral drainage for wet areas.


Slip-resistance to meet Health and Safety standards and keep staff and patients safe underfoot in both a variety of shoes and barefoot is vital.

We offer Altro safety flooring for combined shoe and barefoot use in wet and dry, with lifetime sustained slip-resistance of 15 years.
