There is a straightforward way to take the disruption out of rapid space reconfiguration.

How to change your flooring fast!

If you want to alter your flooring to

  • Change the functionality of an area
  • Create flexible, multi-purpose spaces
  • Change the colours / patterns to aid a one-way system
  • Create zoning and boundaries
  • Refresh the design for improved cleaning, hygiene and wellbeing

then here’s an easier way to do it…

Use Altro adhesive-free flooring to save you up to 50% installation time and 35% costs

Closing a busy space for a lengthy period is not an option, so by installing an adhesive-free floor the work can be completed quickly so that traffic flow is uninterrupted.

Here’s the process

  • Remove your existing flooring, such as carpet tiles or old lino / vinyl
  • Ensure the floor is free of any remaining debris
  • Install an Altro adhesive-free floor direct over the substrate without any need to use a levelling compound, damp-proof membrane or adhesive – saving you up to 50% installation time and up to 35% costs (see below)
  • Weld and walk on the same day
  • No need for wet trades
  • Minimal disruption for you, get everyone back to normal faster

What if you don’t want to remove your existing flooring?

You can lay adhesive-free flooring over it and remove it without damaging your original floor when you wish to.

A customer of ours in Denmark has recently overlaid their lino flooring with Altro Cantata, as they believed the lino would not stand up to the new volume of hand sanitiser being spilled on it. The reasons for overlaying your floor with adhesive-free flooring may be many, but you’ll end up with one successful result!

We have three adhesive-free ranges to choose from

  • Save money – save costs on disposal by diverting your waste from landfill or recycling the floor and reusing it somewhere else
  • Provides the same low residual indentation as adhered flooring
  • Can be used for kit-cutting to aid wayfinding and navigation in the same way as adhered flooring
