Choose lightweight, durable, low-cost flooring

All our products are lightweight, easy to install and maintain, and have been developed specifically to meet the demands of moving vehicles.

Altro Transport safety flooring offers lifetime sustained slip resistance in both wet and dry conditions with a minimum Pendulum Test Value of TTRL ≥ 36, BAM and ASTM D2047 ≥ 0.6. This level of protection is ideal for busy city buses or coaches to protect passengers from slips and trips, while also helping to guard your business against possible health and safety litigation.

In terms of durability, products retain their slip resistance owing to the incorporation of slip-resistant minerals throughout the entire thickness from surface to base. Once welded, our system becomes water-resistant too, protecting from water ingress and subfloor damage.  Altro Transport products stand the test of time, so your investment is safer with Altro. 

We have different thicknesses to suit your needs ranging from 1.8 to heavy-duty 2.7mm flooring.   And the good news is that Altro Transport flooring is lightweight too, which means reduced running costs and fuel efficiency for you. Bonus!

One-stop shop

To complement our extensive suite of products, we have a complete system which caters for your every need with a full range of accessories including adhesives, colour co-ordinated weld rods and sealants, nosing, trims and mouldings.

You can also take advantage of our pre-cut service to save time on installation and get your vehicles back into service quickly.

Get the designer look

To add a touch of style, as well as safety, to your interiors you need our new high design product ranges.

Our new products include bright colours and wood-effect options for enhanced passenger experience and comfort. Created with input from industry-leading interior designers and collaboration with our customers worldwide, these new products meet the growing demand from operators and designers for technical performance and aesthetics.

These new designs are great for the luxury coach market as they can be used to both harmonise and contrast with each other and our pre-existing ranges to give you complete design freedom to create the right mood.  

And if you want to take control of the design, we also offer a customised colour design* option on most of our products. Our customers use this service for things like colour matching corporate branding. We can even include your own logo in the flooring* (*if you’re interested in these bespoke options please call us to discuss).

Colour retention and ease of cleaning

Owing to heavy foot traffic on busy commuter routes we know that hygiene and ease of cleaning are deal breakers/makers. So, we’ve added Altro Easyclean Original to all our pre-existing ranges and we’re now pleased to offer you industry-leading PUR Technology on our new high-design ranges which enables you to use less water and fewer chemicals to keep your floor looking pristine.

With Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology tests prove:

  • low dirt pick-up – your flooring is easier to clean and looks cleaner between cleans
  • unrivalled colour retention – your colours and patterns stay looking new for longer
  • resistance to more stains and chemicals
