Introducing our new wood-look flooring that combines functional performance with modern design to create spaces that really work for the people that use them. Take your pick between our two safety flooring ranges – 2mm Altro Wood Safety and 2.85 Altro Wood Safety Comfort.
Both give the functional performance you’d expect from an Altro safety floor and provide sustained slip resistance for the lifetime of the flooring (PTV ≥ 36). The thicker option provides comfort underfoot and 14dB sound reduction.
We’ve enhanced the number of choices on offer – keeping many of the old favourites and introducing some exciting new colours. In addition, we have included a bamboo-look fine line design and wide plank classic and rustic designs.
Whether you want to create warm and homely aesthetics or transform a space into a cool contemporary feature area, our new ranges can help you make your design vision a reality.
