Acoustics and comfort underfoot

Did you know that up to 43% of diners would opt to get a takeaway rather than eating out because of loud background noise in outlets? Up to 90% of diners would not return to a venue if they found it too noisy. (Action on Hearing Loss, 2017 Study)

Altro Ensemble, our modular flooring system offers 15dB impact sound reduction and four modular sizes, so you can mix and match to create unique patterns utilising colour and design. It is perfect for dining and reception areas.

Altro Orchestra also has 15dB impact sound reduction with 40 colours, giving you design freedom to create the colour scheme you want. Altro Serenade is 3.9mm thick and with 19dB impact sound insulation. Not only does it reduce noise, it provides a high level of comfort underfoot. With 15 colours it matches and coordinates with Altro Orchestra.

Altro Wood Safety Comfort offers up to 14dB impact sound reduction, plus comfort under foot. For busy kitchen workers, at 3mm thick and with up to 10dB impact sound reduction, Altro Stronghold 30 is kind to tired feet and help reduce noise in a busy working environment. If you have settled on one of our other floors, just ask us how you can increase both acoustics and comfort under foot.

“I realised the products should be suitable in our kitchen and eliminate a number of our problems, such as slip resistance, comfort, ease of cleaning and noise. I’m very satisfied with my choice of floor and wall cladding in the kitchen. Now we have a safer, quieter and comfortable working environment and at the same time a more hygienic one.”
