Altro offer a range of specialised slip-resistant flooring options.
Classic by name, classic by nature. If you’re looking for the original safety flooring, this is it. Altro Classic™ 25 was the first ever safety flooring, it’s been tried and trusted for over 60 years, and its traditional, industrial look is still popular today. Altro Classic provides lasting slip resistance, durability and abrasion resistance, making it ideal for use in heavy traffic areas – particularly with wheeled traffic. It’s also good for areas where occasional moisture and dust can increase the risk of slipping as it has a TRRL rating ≥45 and an R11 slip rating. Available in practical, dirt-hiding shades, with the addition of new colours for even greater choice, Altro Classic features Altro Easyclean Original Technology to make cleaning and maintenance easy.
A 3mm thick flooring product designed for safety in wet and greasy conditions where frequent spillage is likely, Altro Stronghold 30/K30™ is ideal for commercial kitchen flooring. Boasting Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance, it minimises slip risk in areas of heavy traffic. Altro Stronghold 30/K30™ features an integral cushion layer, making it comfortable to walk on, thereby reducing fatigue for staff and offering better sound absorption in noisy environments. It combines excellent slip resistance with long-term durability and ease of cleaning. Altro Stronghold 30/K30™ contains a bacteriostat to inhibit the growth of bacteria, contributing to hygiene standards and reducing the risk of cross-infection, and has an A+ BRE Generic Green Guide Rating for Safety Vinyl Flooring, which means it contributes to reducing the environmental impact of your specification
The latest technological breakthrough from Altro brings you a safety flooring for combined shoe and barefoot use. This evolution is not just for soft soled shoe use, but any, including hard soled, rubber and trainers – making it perfect for a host of applications. Achieving a pendulum test value of ≥36 and Class B to DIN51097 for barefoot use, Altro Aquarius™ provides optimum slip resistance in wet and dry environments. This innovation revolutionises product selection for potentially wet areas. It takes away the uncertainty of how and where to specify and install safety flooring for mixed barefoot and shoe use.
Altro Pisces slip resistant safety flooring is the first to be developed with new AltroBead Technology. 16 appealing, nature-inspired shades and soft finish make this a suitable product for high-end spas, dorms, gyms and residential use. Altro Pisces provides slip-resistance of one in a million against common contaminants found in wet environments including shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. Altro Pisces provides a high level of slip resistance whether wet or dry, for both shoes and bare feet, with a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of ≥50. 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. Typical applications include: bathrooms, showers, wet environments in social care, home renovations, social housing, student accommodation, swimming pool surrounds, saunas, spas and changing rooms.
Altro XpressLay™, the world’s first ever, adhesive-free safety floor has a unique underside emboss that forms tiny air channels allowing any moisture left in the subfloor to escape. This technology offers you many time and money-saving benefits as well as environmental advantages, including:
- Altro XpressLay™ can be laid at 97% relative humidity
- The floor can be fully recycled at the end of its life so removing the need to send to landfill
- Welding can be carried out straight away
- Installation can be laid over existing sound and secure flooring surfaces such as vinyl tiles
- Under-floor heating can be kept on where the subfloor is dry below 75% RH
Altro XpressLay™ is supplied with free Altro Looselay double sided tape, which is specifically formulated to work with the underside of the flooring, ensuring optimum installation results and conformity to our 10-year warranty. Altro XpressLay™ safety flooring can be installed in applications where adhered safety flooring is inappropriate, such as historical and listed buildings, thereby extending the scope of safety flooring itself. It is also ideal for temporary installations, such as exhibitions or portacabins, as it can be easily ripped up post-installation, and has an A+ BRE Generic Green Guide Rating for Safety Vinyl Flooring, which means it contributes to reducing the environmental impact of your specification.
