Altro Stronghold 30 modernises market

Altro Stronghold 30


The refurbishment of the Plaza de Abastos de Torrelavega was an ambitious project, improving and modernising a central market created in 1911.

“We needed to make the old market compatible with modern hospitality. For this reason we looked for a floor able to withstand foot and heavy loads including wheeled traffic, is slip-resistant and easy to clean to maintain, “explains Javier López, Councillor for Works of the City of Torrelavega and Deputy mayor.


Óscar del Tío of Decoraciones Honorato, the company that supplied and installed the Altro floors said: “The priority was to avoid slips from rainwater, and from the different market stalls such as water spills from fishmongers, fat spills from the butchers or drinks in hotels.”


The client opted for Altro Stronghold 30 for 600m² of customer areas.

The team of architects of Ceroarquitectura chose Altro Stronghold 30 for its quality, durability and finish. A new colour was manufactured for the marketplace. The success of this new colour, Citrus, meant it was incorporated into the colour palette of Altro Stronghold 30.

The result is a new floor which provides the features of Altro Stronghold 30 and the attractiveness of the Citrus colour. Both characteristics were conclusive to trust Altro.

The choice of customized colour is a service that Altro offers to customers. This was an important factor for the architects when choosing Altro, since they told us that the floor was the star of the work to match the new look with columns and market design.
