Designing for wellbeing

We work with you directly to create a design to help promote service user, staff and visitor wellbeing by incorporating floors and walls in design

  • Altro Wood Safety and Altro Wood Safety Comfort provide natural wood-look floors to bring the outside in
  • Altro floor and wall colours and designs can be used to create visual cues, creating easy to navigate areas
  • Altro Serenade provides 19dB sound reduction to reduce sound reverberation in areas that need noise reduction and privacy
  • We understand refurbishment and repair can be disruptive, costly and affect patient and staff stress levels. Adhesive-free floors Altro XpressLay and Altro Cantata are quick to install and repair and can significantly reduce costs and downtime
  • Altro Whiterock Digiclad can bring imagery from local areas such as parks and woods to visualise familiar scenes and create a sense of calm

Appealing and safe

  • For areas with a high risk of a slip, we always recommend using floors with a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of ≥36, which offers a one in a million chance of slipping for the lifetime of the flooring. Use specialist solutions  Altro Aquarius and Altro Pisces for bathrooms,  and Altro Stronghold 30 for kitchens
  • Aesthetics are key.  Altro Operetta, Altro Orchestra and Altro Serenade are easy to clean and provide comfort and acoustic options to create a relaxing and therapeutic environment for high traffic internal rooms
  • In wet environments, we recommend avoiding overly textured flooring that could hurt sensitive bare feet.  Altro Aquarius and Altro Pisces provide a wide selection of soothing colours while providing safety underfoot
  • Our anti-pick and anti-ligature solutions help create a safer environment for everyone

To help you choose the right floors and walls for each area of a hospital, the Altro Product Selector offers guidance in an instant.  See how your product choices would look with our 3D Space Visualiser.
