Working with experts

To make sure our products continue to offer those designing for dementia a choice of suitable, practical and effective solutions, we have worked with a number of industry experts.

"In this time of ever increasing regulation and legislation it is essential that architects have access to sound and reliable information on construction products. Altro have taken enormous time and trouble to research the vital data that architects need in order to be able to specify flooring materials and wall finishes with confidence. Being able to select the most appropriate material and finish for a wide variety of uses and situations gives architects and other specifiers the opportunity to design beautiful buildings and spaces in the comforting knowledge that they have complied fully with their health, safety and infection control responsibilities. Building needs are wide and varied and the particular issues that need to be taken into account in the design of the internal environment for people with dementia are often neglected. Altro have sought to create a range of products to address these specific needs."
