Altro add colour and comfort to emergency department

Altro Cantata, Altro Fortis Titanium, Altro Whiterock Satins, Altro Whiterock Chameleon

“The Altro wall products are fantastic because they bring colour and interest to the area with no compromise on hygiene and are so easy to clean.”

Ryan Spencer, Managing Director of RLX Construction, visited the Emergency Department at Sheffield Children’s Hospital: “I took my son to A&E and as we waited, I though this is a great facility that has served so many children, but it was really looking a little tired, and a little outdated.”


Ryan approached his then employer, Henry Boot Construction, and using their contacts and experience they were able to source donated products to refurbish the tired A&E waiting area. “I got really good buy -in, and we were able to deliver a fresh, bright and colourful waiting area at no cost to the hospital”, said Ryan.


Richardson Claddings installed Altro Fortis Titanium wall, door and corner protection in the Emergency Department corridors and Altro Whiterock Satins wall sheet in the Emergency Department waiting area. Fresco Flooring installed the Altro Cantata floor throughout the corridors and waiting area.

“It’s a far more pleasant environment to wait in for children and families attending the emergency department.”
