Safety flooring providing optimum slip resistance in wet and dry areas
Safety flooring providing optimum slip resistance in both wet and dry environments for combined shoe and barefoot use – including hard soled, rubber and training shoes – has been launched by Altro.
Designated Altro Aquarius, new flooring launched by Altro, which has achieved both Class B and R10 to Australian Standard 4586 for shoe and barefoot use, eliminates risk for potentially wet areas in a wide range of environments. It removes the uncertainty of how to install safety flooring for mixed barefoot and shoe use, such as assisted care bathrooms and showers, and change rooms in recreation facilities.
In addition, with Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology, Altro Aquarius offers savings on cleaning and maintenance over its life cycle compared to non-PUR-treated safety flooring. It is highly flexible and will cove and weld easily, making it ideal for installation in confined areas such as domestic bathrooms or en suites.
Altro Aquarius provides a fully integrated wall and floor system in conjunction with Altro WhiterockTM wall cladding, for use in wet rooms and other areas where safety and hygiene are critical. Both product ranges include integral Altrosan bacteriostat, which inhibits bacterial growth and minimises the risk of hospital borne infections and cross-contamination.
Altro Aquarius is 100 percent recyclable and contains post-consumer waste as an integral raw material. It is available in a range of warm, homely chipped and non-chipped colours, making it suitable for applications in health, aged care homes, leisure, education and social housing.
