Altro safety for unique rehabilitation unit

Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding and a variety of Altro safety flooring have been installed in a unique health and social care unit in Scotland. The Dirrans Centre, the only one of its kind in Scotland, provides rehabilitative and social services support to adults with a physical disability, brain injury, neurological and long term conditions.

Altro safety flooring installed at the unit include Altro Aquarius for the unit wetrooms, Altro Wood Safety in general areas, and Altro Suprema II in laundry rooms, storage rooms and general areas.  Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding was installed in the bathrooms, kitchens and medical rooms. 

The architect at North Ayrshire council selected Altro products because of the product warranties, colour selection and slip resistance ratings on offer.  Ashleigh Construction installed the Altro safety flooring and hygienic wall cladding for the council.

A durable, hygienic alternative to paint or tiles, Altro Whiterock uPVC hygienic cladding provides a decorative, practical and hygienic cladding solution. Benefiting from a watertight, seamless surface, Altro Whiterock is impervious, preventing water ingress into the substrate, thereby avoiding structural damage.
Altro safety flooring provides ease of installation, maintenance and slip resistance perfect for healthcare environments.  Altro Wood Safety creates a homely, comforting and familiar look without compromising on safety.  Altro Suprema II boasts a selection of 40 colours, fitting in with design trends while providing slip resistance.  Both are ideal for the safety and hygiene requirements of healthcare environments.

Altro Aquarius is our specialist safety flooring for bathroom and wetroom areas.  It was developed for lasting performance in wet and dry, shoes or barefoot environments. Achieving a pendulum test value of PTV≥50 and Class B to DIN51097 for barefoot use, it provides optimum lifetime sustained slip-resistance in wet and dry environments. It's also easy to clean, with Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR technology, meaning it's at the forefront of safety floor cleaning.

Since installation, the specification of Altro products have been rolled out into several other projects from the local authority, including a new build sheltered housing development and a Day Care Centre for the elderly.
