Wanting to update their bathrooms they decided to approach Altro for material for two trial bathrooms. Altro was happy to help and arranged for flooring and wall cladding to be sent to their installers. The outcome has been a success and the facility moved forward with another 46 bathrooms.
Mathew Hafford, Operations Manager at the facility, had this to say, “The new bathrooms look great and the products have enhanced the cleaning capability and provide a high level of hygiene and infection control. Staff find the surfaces are easy to clean and maintain, therefore allowing us more time to focus on care.”
Altro Aquarius 2mm safety flooring was used for the floor which is the perfect solution for a wet and dry, shoe and barefoot environment. Altro Aquarius achieves a high level of slip resistance and is easy to clean and maintain.
Altro Whiterock was used for the walls, installed over the flooring via the overlap method, providing a hygienic wipe clean surface with the added bonus of impact resistance.
