Sheffield Children’s Hospital Atrium

Clean, calm and comfortable floor for busy atrium

Altro Suprema

“The performance is great. We prefer the look to the previous products that were installed and Altro are always there when we need support.”

Senior Capital Projects Manager, Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust


The main reception and entrance area for Sheffield Children’s Hospital needed a new floor as the old linoleum floor had not worn well, the colour had faded, and it had been damaged by furniture, foot and wheeled traffic. The area is also home to retail outlets selling food and drink, and with visitors and staff treading wet weather conditions into the area, it brings an increased risk of slips and trips to patients, visitor’s carers and staff.


James Lines, Project Manager, Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust championed Altro products, specifically recommending Altro Suprema for its safety and durability. James said, “Approximately 1200 people per week pass through this area accessing the outpatients’ department, treatment areas, wards, care and surgery areas, laboratories, and restaurant / dining areas so a robust solution was required.”


Altro Suprema, in colour Sugar, was installed over two weekends, with one weekend being allowed for preparation. James Lines, Project Manager at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust said, “The installation went well and was ver y quick, limiting disruption to the area.”

Jamie Douglas, Senior Capital Projects Manager at Sheffield Chil dren’s NHS Foundation Trust commented, “Another benefit to having an Altro floor is that a specialist cleaning product is not required. The y clean quickly, a great benefit as the area is so busy , we cannot close it for long periods of time.”

“Over 1200 people pass through the area in a week and there are no issues with marks or stains, it cleans well, and looks great.”
