Altro Pisces: NEW safety flooring for wet environments with the look and feel of home

We are pleased to introduce you to Altro Pisces™, our NEW safety flooring for wet and dry, shoes and bare feet on a new scale.

Created for places that people call home away from home and high-end wet environments, it’s the first safety flooring to feature AltroBead™ Technology, which gives the soft, consistent look you would expect and want from domestic interiors.

Altro Pisces is designed for wet environments in places that people call home, such as care homes, social housing and student accommodation, or where people go to relax, such as spas, saunas and swimming pools. Expectations are at an all-time high. They need to look good and they need to look homely. Cold, clinical accommodation is no longer acceptable; looks really do matter. Yet for those responsible for these areas, safety remains a top priority.

With a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of ≥50, (R10, Class B, p5) and 16 beautiful shades, inspired by nature, Altro Pisces brings together the best of both worlds. Plus it’s been developed to fit with and complement the Altro Whiterock™ range, forming a sealed, watertight system for enhanced safety and hygiene.

Uncompromising performance

The beauty of Altro Pisces is that it allows you to bridge the gap between high-performance safety flooring and demands for domestic-style flooring.

Altro Pisces’ nature-inspired shades and soft finish give a high-end look for spas and residential use where people want to feel relaxed and not conscious of the fact they’re walking on safety flooring; it shouldn’t cross their minds. Altro Pisces enables people to take their safety for granted. This also makes it the perfect choice for home adaptations, where keeping vulnerable users and their carers safe is paramount. Being able to put Altro safety flooring into a home environment helps maintain independence, playing a role in keeping someone in their own home for as long as possible.

To make it easier for carers and cleaning teams, Altro Pisces contains Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology so cleaning is an easier and quicker job.

Colours can spark a range of emotions.

Altro Pisces’ shades have been developed with comfort, warmth and relaxation in mind to make the bathing experience more enjoyable and avoiding the clinical feel that some home-from-home environments create. Inspired by nature, the 16 appealing tones offer design choice without compromising on safety.

Introducing our unique AltroBead Technology

Altro Pisces is the first safety flooring to be developed with AltroBead Technology. For each of the 16 shades, tiny beads in three carefully selected hues are blended and evenly distributed into the flooring on top of the base colour. The result is the consistent, soft appearance that you would expect and want from domestic interiors. The subtle blend of four colours in each shade makes matching or choosing walls and fixtures much easier and allows a different, and more personal, touch within block accommodation, even if the same flooring is chosen for each.

Superior slip resistance

Altro Pisces provides slip-resistance of one in a million against common contaminants found in wet environments including shampoo, conditioner and shower gel*.

It provides a high level of slip resistance whether wet or dry, putting less pressure on maintenance teams to keep the flooring dry. This means that carers can focus on bathing, drying and dressing residents without having to worry about them or their patient slipping.

With the product durability you would expect from Altro, Altro Pisces maintains its slip-resistance throughout its lifetime, making it resistant to wear and tear from shoes yet developed to go easy on bare feet.

** Sliders 96 (shoes) and 55 (bare feet)

A complete solution

Altro Pisces has been designed to fit perfectly with Altro Whiterock hygienic wall sheets, forming a sealed, watertight system for enhanced safety and hygiene. Combined with the smooth appearance of Altro Whiterock Satins or Altro Whiterock Digiclad, it creates an impressive high-end look and allows tailored designs, resulting in exactly the look and feel required. It also looks great with Altro Suprema and Altro Wood Safety.

Sustainability
In line with our commitment to sustainability, Altro Pisces is manufactured using responsibly sourced materials. It is 100% recyclable post-installation which means any off-cuts can be recycled through the Recofloor™ scheme.
