The Stockerhof, Pfaffenhofen, Germany

Hygiene and safety for event catering

Altro Stronghold 30, Altro Whiterock Satins

The Stockerhof in Pfaffenhofen is well known in the region for event catering. With 400 seats in the historic barn and a further 150 in the beer garden it is the venue for cabaret, exhibitions and private functions. Norbert Stocker, the operator of the Stockerhofs, needed to modernise the building to meet today’s requirements for safety and hygiene, while respecting the historic structure.

The walls and floors of the kitchen, including the food preparation and utility room needed updating, along with the equipment room and washrooms for staff. The barn was an irregular shape with few straight surfaces, and the kitchen furniture was on pedestals that had to be incorporated into the fitting, as well as five floor drains.

In discussions with the kitchen planner Stocker was introduced to Altro. Altro safety flooring and hygienic wall cladding are all approved by HACCP International. for non-food services and supplies.

Norbert Stocker chose Altro Whiterock Satins in Seafoam for the walls. The hard-wearing, scratch-resistant and seam-free system is suitable for areas with high hygiene requirements. It is impact resistant and provides an easy to clean surface.

Norbert Stocker said: “The wall cladding was installed seamlessly with adhesive on the dry surface. The wall cladding was thermoformed around the corners and edges.”

Altro Stronghold 30 achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance (PTV ≥55, R12) and is designed to minimise risk in wet and greasy conditions for the lifetime of the flooring. As well as helping to keep staff safe from slips, it also helps reduce their fatigue, thanks to its 3mm thickness which provides noise reduction and comfort underfoot. Combined with Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding, it provides an impermeable solution that provides the highest levels of safety and hygiene in the most demanding kitchen.

Norbert Stocker: “In addition to the product benefits I was impressed with the service of Altro: the information and guidance before purchase, the recommendation of an installation company and the smooth running of the installation. It was coordinated perfectly and completed on a tight time schedule.”
