Commercial kitchens require optimum hygiene, safety and comfort.
In the UK, commercial kitchen floors and walls must meet food hygiene regulations set out by the Food Standards Agency and Food Standards Scotland. These specify that floor and wall surfaces in areas where food is prepared should be regularly maintained, ‘easy to clean, disinfected, smooth, hard-wearing, washable and in a good state of repair’.
Altro’s commercial kitchen floor and wall ranges are designed to address many of the potential risks of busy commercial kitchens – like slips and contamination – and to make cleaning and maintenance simple. Combined, they provide an integrated system that helps protect people using the kitchen as well as the environment.
Commercial kitchen flooring needs to be safe, comfortable and robust enough to cope with heavy use, spillages, and extremes of temperature.
Our ranges of commercial kitchen vinyl flooring and resin flooring are designed to meet all of these demands.
Resin is a hardwearing resilient surface that is applied to the prepared floor base in liquid form and dries to a seamless non-porous floor covering. Altro resins offer a low-maintenance economic option for commercial kitchen flooring.
Altro’s commercial kitchen vinyl flooring provides a safe and comfortable surface for busy kitchens. Altro Stronghold 30 is the perfect slip resistant solution for commercial kitchens, with a slip-resistant rating of (PTV >55, R12) that means the chance of a slip is just one in a million.
Altro’s resin and vinyl kitchen flooring ranges include Altro Stronghold 30, the ideal vinyl floor for kitchen environments. It offers safety and comfort, with a one in a million slip risk - even if grease, oils and fat are spilt - and at 3mm thick - is cushioned for comfort underfoot, which can reduce fatigue for staff working long shifts.
Altro Crete resin flooring comes with strong resistance to a wide range of chemicals and food substances, and excellent impact and abrasion resistance. Our 6mm slip-resistant variant has a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of ≥50. It has a textured surface and is ideal for commercial kitchens and other heavy-duty areas. Also, an ideal resin kitchen flooring is Altro Crete 8mm slip-resistant variant. It has excellent impact and abrasion resistance and is made for an increased temperature range (-40°C to +120°C) so it can cope in demanding environments that may need regular steam cleaning.
In commercial kitchens, wall cladding can help ensure the highest hygiene standards.
