Julian Hospital, Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Trust

Comfort and safety provided for healthcare unit

Altro Aquarius, Altro Whiterock Satins, Altro Suprema, Altro Wood adhesive-free


Blickling Ward at Julian Hospital is a unit for adult mental health patients undergoing a major refurbishment to provide comfortable, secure and welcoming facilities for staff and patients. The installation needed to be approached with patient sensitivity and completed with minimum disruption, often overnight.


To ensure the most suitable design, staff were consulted and given the opportunity to select shades and colours that would be most appropriate for the unit. With the need for anti-ligature products, Altro floors and walls offered a complete solution for the different areas and the technical specification required.


Altro Aquarius, Altro Whiterock White and Altro Whiterock Satins were specified for the bathrooms and toilets providing an easy to clean, colourful, hygienic and safe environment. Altro Wood adhesive-free was specified for the corridors and communal areas which required a fast installation with minimal disruption. Altro Suprema was specified for the bedrooms, providing style and comfort.

Altro Aquarius is a specialist solution for combined wet and dry, shoe and barefoot areas, keeping users safe from common contaminants such as shampoo and conditioner.

Altro Whiterock White is a proven, high performance, hygienic alternative to ceramic tiles and Altro Whiterock Satins are colourful, satin finish wall sheets with all the hygiene and durability of Altro Whiterock.

Altro Wood adhesive-free creates maximum impact with minimum downtime providing a safe, durable and decorative solution for busy spaces.

Altro Suprema is a non-sparkle, low-gloss safety flooring with superior stain, abrasion and scratch resistance suitable for very heavy commercial use, foot and wheeled traffic.

The previous product, a latex screed, had failed so we needed a floor that we knew would be robust, durable, and be fit for purpose – so we chose Altro.

“We have a preferred specification of Altro products, and the unit staff were responsible for selection of designs and colours.
