The ultimate design freedom: customised floors and walls from Altro

21 April 2021


It’s now possible to create a space designed entirely and uniquely for the people using it with Altro Custom floors and walls – and it couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is choose from our collection of images and patterns, or upload your own design using our step-by-step Custom service.

Altro Custom floors and walls allow you to design for areas where looks not only count, but can positively affect the views and even the wellbeing of the people who live, work or visit. Imagine classrooms with floors that look like grass or sand; Mexican restaurants with beautiful views of the Mayan Riviera on the walls, or a cutting-edge fashion shop with modern art running from floor to ceiling.

As Altro Custom floors and walls can feature your designs, the options are endless. To create your custom floor or wall, our ordering portal takes you through the process, one step at a time, with guidance on file requirements, plus previews along the way. If you want the ‘wow’ factor but don’t have your own design, the Altro collection, which will be regularly updated, has multiple choices for you.

Of course, it’s not only about looks: Altro Custom floors and walls have the performance you expect from us. NEW Altro Orchestra Custom has 15dB impact sound reduction and comfort underfoot with excellent resistance to residual indentation. Altro Whiterock Digiclad (Custom) is the tried and trusted wall cladding system that you already know. Your vision – a design or photographic image - is turned into reality using UV cured inks onto an Altro Whiterock sheet. Hard-coat technology provides scratch-resistant properties for added surface protection of your chosen print or design.

And there it is: total creative freedom with the quality you expect from Altro. For more information, and to see some examples from the Altro collection of designs, take a look here.

From idea to installation, an Altro design story

A short distance from the ‘school of building’, the home of the Bauhaus modernist art movement, you can find our German manufacturing site and offices. Given that Bauhaus students questioned the traditional and worked to the view that form and function are equally important, it would be difficult to create and develop products in the shadow of the Bauhaus without its influence at the heart of our work.
