Sydney Adventist Hospital sticks with Altro

Sydney Adventist Hospital (SAH) is an acute-care private hospital with capacity for over 550 licensed overnight beds. It is the largest private and the largest not-for-profit hospital in New South Wales, Australia.

The hospital is undergoing a redevelopment of its site, and have already used Altro Suprema in the new built Clinical Education Centre and the integrated solution of Altro Whiterock White and Altro Aquarius for the private ensuite bathrooms.

When the selection for a new floor and wall surfaces were needed for the upgraded kitchen, Altro were selected again.

Peter Johannsen, Managing Director of Willobee Floor Service Sales P/L said, “As part of the redevelopment and additions to the Sydney Adventist hospital site, the hospital recognised the need to greatly increase the kitchen size to cope with a greater number of patients. Their requirements for the project were surfaces that were durable, long lasting, safe and easy to clean. Altro having already had an excellent long term relationship with the client were the first choice with Altro Stronghold 30 and Altro Whiterock.”
 
Hospital kitchens can spell danger. Grease, fat, cooking oil, flour, baking powder, food particles... and the occasional chopped carrot can all end up on floors and walls. These tough locations require tough solutions offering slip-resistance, cleanability and comfort to staff, many of whom can spend hours on their feet each day. Having used Altro products for many years throughout the SAH, they knew that Altro Stronghold 30 and Altro Whiterock White would provide all this as a long term interior package for their kitchen.
 
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. 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.

Altro Whiterock White is the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean. Its smooth white surface and classical purity make it a timeless choice for any interior. HACCP-approved Altro Whiterock White is made from a high-quality, food-safe PVCu polymer that can handle temperatures up to 60°C, and meets all current EU Directives on health and hygiene.
