Keeping your bus and rail floors clean doesn’t just look great – it means that your floors can continue to perform at their best. Altro transport floors are designed, through the unique emboss or aggregate blend in the top coats, to maintain contact between the floor and the sole of customers’ shoes, despite any contaminants that may be present such as oil or water. If dirt is allowed to build up around the emboss or slip resistant aggregates of our floors, it can decrease the slip-resistant performance by up to 50%.
