Safety for bus passengers

Altro Transflor Chroma installed on an Abellio vehicle in London

Exposure to contaminants such as water, ice, dust and even spillages is unavoidable for any vehicle with passengers boarding from different climates and environments. So Altro flooring contains a variety of aggregates, which create additional surface friction to safeguard passenger footing.

Maintaining contact

The presence of surface contaminants – in even the smallest amounts – can reduce contact between the floor and the sole of the passengers’ shoes. When subjected to the downward pressure of passengers’ feet, the aggregates in Altro floors are able to penetrate surface contaminants to maintain the contact between the floor and the shoe. We offer a range of different aggregates in our bus floors – from the larger chips in Altro Transflor Chroma and Altro Transflor Figura, to the sparkles in Altro Transflor Meta, to the grains of Altro Transflor Wood, you can expect uncompromising slip resistance.

Sustained performance

With busy routes subject to frequent stops and passengers standing while the vehicle is in motion, effective slip resistance is essential. Many alternative materials depend on grooved surfaces to provide this, however these are prone to wear and, in certain cases, require regular maintenance to ensure performance. The natural resilience of the mineral aggregates used in Altro bus floors actually enhances durability and provides slip-resistance for the life of the product.
