Cabárceno Nature Reserve, Spain

Restaurant conserves safety with Altro flooring

Altro Stronghold 30

The Cabárceno Nature Reserve is located in the valley of Pisueña, 15 km from Santander, Spain. It is a man-made naturalised space, unique in Europe, and home to almost 150 species of animals from five continents. The reserve is 750 hectacres, and visitors tend to spend the day there. Therefore, the park has been equipped with many customer service facilities, including Los Osos restaurant, which offers a truly unique view of the park and its wildlife.

Los Osos restaurant seats 250 people, with 10 staff to prepare and serve meals throughout the year.

With ceramic tiles in the kitchen, there was a risk of slips and falls for staff caused by spills of water, oils and other kitchen contaminants. Altro Stronghold 30 was selected for the new floor in the kitchen.

“We needed to remodel the kitchen, especially the floor, and we were prioritising health and safety,” explains Juan Ibañez, maintainer of Cabárceno. “We chose Altro because we wanted an effective and easy to install product. We had no previous experience with this floor and I must say the staff are very happy with the new flooring.”

Juan Ibañez would recommend Altro Stronghold 30 for its “safety, hygiene, easy cleaning, aesthetics and comfort.”

The installation of safety flooring in the kitchen was completed by Honorato Decorations and Sons, a company specialising in the supply and installation of PVC vinyl flooring for the last 25 years.

Jesús del Tío, light flooring technician at Honorato Decorations and Sons, said: “For this installation, the client needed a continuous floor, without open joints, that is easy to clean and quick to install.”

“It is a 3mm thick safety flooring which is easy to clean compared to other types of materials. As it is impervious, it prevents the growth of bacteria and odours are eliminated.

“In addition, Altro floors and walls are HACCP approved, an accreditation that guarantees its products are safe in areas where food is handled,” he concludes.
