Learn more about how we’re supporting the fight against Covid-19

With the fast-changing COVID-19 situation, we understand what challenging times these are for everyone: for you, your business and your family. As a family business ourselves, our priority is taking care of our colleagues, our customers, partners and suppliers.

We have introduced extra measures across our sites to look after our colleagues and all those who still need to come to our premises in person, including delivery staff: we are promoting social distancing at work; encouraging those who can work from home to do so, including both office and field teams; postponing any non-essential visits and events; implementing more vigorous cleaning regimes; and employing video technology to conduct meetings and customer visits wherever possible.

With this in mind, I wanted to get in touch with you personally to explain what steps we are taking at Altro to continue supporting you with your business.

The Global Altro Leadership Team is meeting daily to consider the latest government guidance in those markets in which we operate. As a global business with local presence, we can respond swiftly to regional customer needs and are structured in such a way that we are able to maintain stock levels and global supplies. I want to reassure you that we are very much open for business as usual and will do everything we can to respond to your individual circumstances.

In the coming days and weeks, we will keep you updated on how we are responding to the evolving situation. You will shortly hear from us about all the different ways you can stay in touch with us, so that we can carry on working together. Should you have any queries whatsoever, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your regular, local Altro contact.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you, your family and colleagues good health and assure you that we are doing everything we can to maintain the excellent level of customer service that you have come to expect from Altro.

With kind regards

Richard Kahn
CEO Floors and Managing Director, Altro Group

Safety

Safety

Safety matters. We’ve been pioneering safety flooring solutions since 1947 and we use our knowledge and experience to help you make informed choices. We’re passionate about preventing accidents.

What makes flooring safe or unsafe, and how it affects the people that use it, are incredibly important issues to us. Different environments demand different solutions to keep people safe, and that’s where our expertise helps you make safe choices. We’ve gone the extra mile to ensure we provide solutions that give more protection in the areas that need it.

We offer two different types of safety flooring, as well as smooth flooring for areas with a low slip risk. Deciding which type you need is straight-forward. It’s all down to the contaminants present in your environment, as it’s contaminants that determine your level of slip risk. So all you have to do is match the type of flooring you need to the contaminant you have.

Specialist safety flooring solutions for very high slip risk

Developed to meet the toughest demands, you’ll find our hardest working, smartest products within this type offering up to Pendulum Test Value (PTV) >55 and R11 and R12 levels of slip resistance, plus our highest level of performance. You can rely on these to deliver lifetime sustained slip resistance, even with contaminants such as grease or shampoo, reducing the risk of anyone slipping to just one in a million. Guaranteed.

We’re talking commercial kitchens with the grease, oils and spillages that just can’t be avoided. And wet environments peppered with shampoos and shower products, lotions and creams, to be negotiated by bare feet or shoes.

These areas demand our specialist solutions for very high slip risk – anything less is not worth the risk.

Safety flooring solutions for high slip risk

In areas where there’s risk of a water spillage, we recommend our safety flooring ranges. These products deliver sustained slip resistance, reducing the risk of slipping to one in a million for the lifetime of the flooring in areas where water is the contaminant. Guaranteed.

All our solutions for high slip-risk areas have PTV≥ 36 and are within the R10 slip resistance category. You know what it’s like if you’ve ever been to a busy shopping centre when it’s been raining outside – wet shoes and dripping umbrellas can make the floor slippery. Likewise, there’s potential for wet floors in coffee shops, restrooms and entrance areas.

These areas demand our solutions for high slip risk to keep staff and visitors safe.

Flooring solutions for low slip risk

For areas with a low slip risk, where spillages rarely happen and there’s no direct access from outside bringing wet or muddy footprints, our smooth flooring solutions are ideal. For corridors, waiting areas, classroom and wards, smooth flooring delivers ease of cleaning, durability and a wider range of aesthetic options.
