Hygiene in wet environments

No one wants to wash or change in a dirty environment, but what about the contamination that’s not obvious?

If safety flooring isn’t cleaned properly, a hazardous level of dirt and contaminant build-up can accumulate on the surface, potentially increasing the risk of a slip to as high as one in twenty. In a wet environment, the effects of a slip or fall could be devastating.

A build-up of bacteria on floors or walls can lead to mould growth, the effects of which range from exacerbating allergies to respiratory problems. Older people and children, as well as those with existing health issues, can be particularly affected by this.

Altro Aquarius and Altro Pisces contain Altro Easyclean technology which requires a less stringent cleaning regime.

The lack of studs on Altro Aquarius and Altro Pisces also makes them easier to clean as there is nowhere for limescale to build up.

Altro Whiterock hygienic wall sheets have a stain-resistant, wipe-clean surface that is watertight and impervious even when installed over tiles. As it’s a fully-bonded system with fully sealed edges, abutments and jointing systems, not only are liquids unable to penetrate but there is nowhere for bacteria to go. This means it can be cleaned easily and effectively.

The perfect partnership

Altro Whitrock Satins has been designed to fit together perfectly with Altro Aquarius or Altro Pisces, forming a sealed, watertight system for enhanced safety and hygiene. This integrated system includes welded jointing, coveability and compatibility with drainage. This means: installation is easier, there is no need to worry about joined surfaces ‘parting company’ and the system will require less maintenance.

The integrated system

  • Totally sealed, hygienic system
  • Impervious, non-absorbent and washable
  • Withstands extremes of hot and cold temperatures (+60°C to -30°C)
  • Coved junctions between wall sheets and flooring create an impermeable seal, which is easier to keep clean
  • Sound investment – designed to maintain performance and retain appearance for up to 20 years
