Toolbox talks

One thing we’ve looked forward to is running our ‘toolbox talks’; informal get-togethers to share guidance and best practice with you. The sessions cover what’s most important to you but can include:

  • installation guidance
  • our product range: which suits what areas
  • adhesives: which to use when
  • snagging; what to look out for and how to deal with it
  • subfloor prep
  • specification writing

It’s a good opportunity to take the hands-on approach and try some installation techniques, overseen by our tech services team. It’s a great way of understanding how our floors and walls should be installed, what challenges they can help you overcome – and what to look out for if inspecting completed work.

Lunch and learn

We appreciate that you’re dealing with backlogs of work and may need product information and guidance quickly, so we can also run a ‘lunch and learn’ session to take your team through the floors and walls that give you the durability needed for housing, while looking homely.

If you would like to arrange either a toolbox talk or a ‘lunch and learn’, just get in touch with your Altro consultant using the contact details below.

Altro training schools

And if more in-depth installation training is needed, the Altro training school is up and running in Letchworth Garden City, with a new course available, focussed on modular flooring (LVT). You can find details of all our courses here.

*The Altro training schools, toolbox talks and ‘lunch and learns’ will be run in line with the COVID-19 guidance that’s applicable at the time.
