Rockville Hospital Behavioural Health Unit, USA

Altro solution rocks Rockville Hospital

Altro Pisces, Altro Whiterock White

Issue

Rockville Hospital, part of the Eastern Connecticut Healthcare Network, boasts a strong behavioural health unit that provides support and specialized, sophisticated services for many areas of mental health, including additions, anxiety, depression and other counseling.

The project had originally called for competitor products, but the Altro Regional Representative met with Jeff Lawton and Rockville Hospital housekeeping staff and presented Altro flooring, showing the proper cleaning regimen.

Approach

Jeff Lawton of Moser Pilon Nelson Architects worked with the hospital, selecting Altro Pisces, Altro Whiterock and Altro Woodlook flooring for use throughout the unit. The hospital was impressed, and staff members continue to be happy with their installation.

Solution

For the bathrooms and other wet areas throughout the unit, award-winning Altro Pisces was specified for the floors, accompanied by Altro Whiterock hygienic wall sheets.

Altro Whiterock’s hygienic nature prevents water and moisture ingress. With the increasing efforts to combat healthcare acquired infections in hospitals around the country, impact-resistant and hygienic wall products are essential.

Altro Wood-look flooring was installed in patient rooms and corridors. It can cope with medium to heavy foot traffic—exactly what busy hospital floors require.

For ‘home from home’ environments, looks really do matter. For those providing accommodation, safety remains a top priority, especially in wet environments where the likelihood of a slip is very high. Altro Pisces performs whether wet or dry, in shoes or barefoot. Altro Pisces achieves Class B to DIN 51097 for barefoot use, plus a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of ≥50 (Slider 96).

Altro Pisces offers 16 soft-look shades; the result is the soft appearance that you would want from domestic interiors, with the lifetime sustained slip resistance you expect from Altro.

Combined with Altro Whiterock hygienic wall sheets it provides a hygienic, impervious and easy to clean solution for wet environments.
