The Altro process

Altro’s manufacturing processes are designed to not only ensure the safety and well-being of our staff but environmental well-being too, by looking at renewable material sources, product performance and end of life disposal.

  • Altro invented adhesive-free safety flooring, allowing the product to be recycled or reused
  • Altro were the first manufacturer to produce phthalate-free safety floors
  • We continue to lead the market in making vinyl floors that are free from ortho-phthalate plasticisers
  • We have been using a more renewable source of plasticisers since 2008 globally
  • 100% of Altro construction safety floors contain a bioplasticiser which comes from corn/maize
  • We use plasticisers based on natural raw materials (citric acid ester)
  • All Altro vinyl floors are CE compliant according to DIN EN 14041:2004/AC:2006 (German Institute for Standardisation (Deutsches Institut für Normung)
