Altro Fortis provides tough solution for high school corridors

Ponteland High School, based in Northumberland, has 1,110 students aged 13-18 and aims to be one of the best schools in the country.

The school needed a tough walling product for a corridor section of the school which is heavily trafficked.  The school have had to re-paint the area on a number of occasions due to marking and scuffing from students.

When researching an alternative wall surface, Claire Hancock from Ponteland High School selected Altro Fortis Titanium in the vibrant Cardinal shade for the area.  The school’s Site Manager installed the wall cladding to the area.

Claire said:  “In a school of 1,110 pupils our narrow corridors can get pretty congested, especially at break and lunch times.  Our students are great and they move around school in a calm and orderly manner but it's inevitable that walls will get damaged just because of the sheer volume.
 
The Altro Fortis wall cladding has stood up really well in this first term.  We'd usually need to do a bit of touching at half term so it's been great that we haven't needed to!  And the cleaners love it as well.  It pretty much looks as good today as when it was first installed.  It's only been a few months but  it's certainly a better solution than our previous one.  I'd definitely use it again.”
 
Altro Fortis Titanium is the saviour of busy public areas. Doors and plaster board walls can easily be damaged, be it scrapes and knocks as people pass, or more serious dents and holes caused by wheeled traffic. Altro Fortis Titanium has been specifically designed to protect these surfaces in busy public areas.
 
Altro Fortis Titanium is constructed from highly durable semi-rigid sheet, which is dense, impervious material, resistant to bumps. It features a lightly textured surface, which camouflages scuffs, keeping the wall area looking better for longer.
 
Available in ten colours, including muted and vibrant shades, Altro Fortis Titanium matches many of the popular shades from the Altro Whiterock Satins hygienic wall cladding range. This offers flexibility when it comes to design, making it a versatile solution across a range of areas. Plus the colour runs throughout, reducing the visibility of knocks or scrapes.
 
With an impervious, easy-to-wipe surface, Altro Fortis Titanium improves cleanability which is a major advantage within its recommended application areas.
