Social housing - bathroom

Bathrooms can be the most dangerous area in the home, with water on the floor a real hazard. Tenants need to be protected from slipping – particularly vulnerable individuals, such as the elderly. Altro safety flooring is the ideal solution, providing peace of mind with lifetime sustained slip-resistance for 15 years.

Another concern is maintenance. Altro wall cladding and Altro safety flooring require little maintenance, and form a fully sealed, watertight system with no grouted joints that could potentially crack, let in water and lead to building damage.

It’s easy to create a safe, welcoming and homely environment for your tenants with Altro’s wide palette of colours.
