Altro Piccolo

Welcome to our page of Altro Piccolo frequently asked questions. We have tried to address many of your queries but please contact us if your specific question is not answered here.

A.   Altro Piccolo is a 2.4mm thick cushioned wood-effect sheet vinyl floor with a 0.25mm wear layer and 15dB impact sound reduction and comfort underfoot.

A.    Altro Piccolo is designed for use in residential living areas. Bedrooms, living rooms and low traffic living spaces such as internal hallways. Altro Piccolo can also be used in domestic kitchens if there is no requirement for a safety floor.

A.    Altro Piccolo should not be used outside of a domestic living envir onment. The demands that exist in commercial or public circulation areas are significantly higher than are seen in domestic living areas and the floor is not suited to the high levels of foot traffic found in public areas. In these areas the Altro Wood collection should be used. The Altro Wood collection’s thicker 0.7mm wear layer is more suited to areas that experience high traffic levels and is more robust.

Altro Piccolo achieves a use classification of:
  1. 23 – heavy domestic
  2. 31 – moderate commercial
    This compares to Altro’s other wood sheet ranges that achieve:
  3. 34 – very heavy commercial. (ISO 10874)

A.    Both these safety floors can be used in areas where a risk assessment has shown that a safety floor is required to keep users safe underfoot. They can be installed in a variety of areas such as corridors, wards, classrooms, entrance and communal areas, dining and bar areas as well as busy retail areas and in areas requiring added comfort underfoot.
