Cleanability

Flooring and walling in mental health can be exposed to extreme levels of staining, urine, faecal material, blood etc, Hygiene and cleanability take on extra significance in the fight against the spread of infection and the maintenance of premises.

Many Altro products contain Altrosan bacteriostat, which inhibits the growth of infections such as MRSA and similar organisms.

Our flooring ranges offer a variety of cleaning technologies to provide the right level of cleanability for the environment. Our Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology offers optimum cleanability, requires a less stringent cleaning regime and offers unrivalled low dirt pick-up for improved long-term cleanability.

“The Altro Suprema II and Altro Whiterock products were chosen for the scheme because of their durability and we have used them before very successfully on Trust projects. They are easy to clean, provide the suitable safety levels and come in a wide range of colours to complement any design.”
Danni Littlewood, Assistant Capital Projects Officer at Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust

“We chose Altro for this project for a number of reasons. Firstly, our relationship with them goes back many years and we trust their products. Also, for a project like Ferndene we needed the floors and walls to meet specific requirements; they had to comply with a number of regulations such as slip ratings, cleanability and life cycle. This is a young person's mental health unit, so safety is paramount and it must be able to withstand pretty much anything thrown at it - quite literally.”
Scott Stewart, Interior Designer at Medical Architecture, which designed Ferndene Children and Young People’s Centre
