Naples Trauma Centre, USA

The crucial hour: Altro bring safety, peace of mind

Altro Suprema, Altro Whiterock

For those suffering critical injury, survival is often placed in the hands of a trauma centre. With usually less than an hour to act, everything, including the flooring and wall cladding, needs to be clean, safe and hygienic – for both patients and healthcare providers.

Naples Community Hospital (NCH), located in Naples, Florida, USA, sought to construct a freestanding Emergency Department trauma centrer, built off-site from the main hospital.

In trauma centres, patients are rushed in and can sometimes stay for a few days. Providers don’t want to be thinking about how the interior finishes are holding up while trying to administer aid.

To prepare for the diverse needs of the centre, NCH chose to install the durable and safe Altro Suprema safety flooring and Altro Whiterock White hygienic wall cladding. Altro Suprema is a sparkle free safety flooring that has excellent slip resistance, making your chances of a slip or trip one in a million for the lifetime of the flooring. With 40 colour choices, it can fit into any design scheme.

Altro Whiterock was designed for environments with rigorous hygiene standards. When combined with Altro flooring, such as Altro Suprema, it creates a hygienic, watertight, durable and easy-to-clean environment.

The design was done by Studio Plus Architecture of Fort Myers, Florida, USA.
