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

Fire-resistant

We know that the selection of wall sheets and systems is a vital decision when designing or refurbishing a building for both safety and aesthetic purposes. Internal wall linings are a critical factor in the spread of fire and it gaining hold; therefore, consideration must be given to the fire rating and resistance to fire of any product being considered for specification. This is of particular importance in circulation areas where fire can prevent escape.

Class 0 fire rating

The Altro Whiterock system has been designed to give you confidence and peace of mind with a BS 476 Class 0 fire rating when used as described in the installation guide. Our systems can be trusted to do the job in high risk areas such as commercial kitchens as well as general use areas. Altro Whiterock is also CE marked under the construction products regulation (CPR) and is covered by the standard EN 15102.

With Altro you can rest assured that our wall systems are fully compliant and our Technical Services team can provide you with guidance.
