Now, more than ever the ability to maintain the utmost hygiene in commercial areas is imperative. So, if you’re looking to create or refurbish a commercial kitchen or bathroom, spa or pool area, consulting room or lab, then you want to be sure that the materials you use are the most hygienic option for your business or home and consider using Altro hygienic wall cladding.

Replace your Ceramic Tiles for Hygienic Wall Cladding

Traditionally, in areas such as washrooms, toilets and kitchens, tiles are used to protect walls. Yet this approach can cause more harm than good as grout can be difficult to clean – and bleach actually damages grout. Gaps between tiles harbour bacteria especially if the grout shrinks or the tiles crack.
Flooring Matters are able to provide you with a much more hygienic solution for wall covering by fitting Altro Whiterock. A smooth, non-porous, easy to clean, hygienic wall cladding, Altro Whiterock comes in sheets that provide seamless coverage from floor to ceiling. As the panels can be heat formed and bent around corners and installed obstacles like pipes, this eliminates the threat of bacteria hiding in the cracks and gaps that you’d usually get when using other types of traditional wall coverings.

A range of sheets are available in White, Satins, Decorative, High Gloss finish and the
bespoke Digiclad range.

Typical applications for Altro Whiterock are:
• Bathrooms, Showers & Wetrooms
• Commercial kitchens
• Operating rooms
• Food manufacturing
• Hospitals
• Spa areas
• Restaurants
• Hotels
• Schools
• Pharmaceuticals
• Retail changing rooms

Commercial Kitchen with Altro Whiterock wall cladding and Stronghold flooring

Create a hygienic seamless joint between floor and wall

Altro Whiterock is designed to integrate with Altro flooring using a seamless, watertight joint. However, Flooring Matters are able to fit cladding in conjunction with any non slip flooring that has been coved up the walls. The coved flooring (also known as coved skirting) stops dirt from getting trapped in corners as it is curved. Wall cladding can either overlap existing or new vinyl flooring or finished with the Altro base trim, covering the join between the flooring and the cladding.

We can fit Altro Whiterock to New Builds or
Refurbishment projects

Altro Whiterock semi rigid extruded PVCu wall sheet can be used in hygienic environments
and areas subject to wet usage and is suitable for new and refurbishment building
If you are looking to re-fit a commercial kitchen, bathroom or wet room, Flooring Matters
can often fit Altro over existing tiles, block and brickwork, as long as the
surface is smooth, sound, dry and free of contamination.
It’s also useful to know that all the sheets are supplied with a protective film on the face
which can be left in place until the area is ready for use. This then helps protect the new
surface from dust while other trades are working in the area. Once all the cladding has
been installed, the protective film is removed.

Altro Whiterock White  for the utmost in
Hygienic wall cladding

For the highest level of hygiene, especially in environments like labs or commercial kitchens, we recommend Altro Whiterock White™. Crafted from a top-notch, food-safe PVCu polymer capable of withstanding temperatures up to 60°C, it complies with all current EU Directives regarding health and hygiene. This material is well-suited for commercial kitchens, clinical areas, and bathrooms, serving as a low-maintenance, hygienic alternative to ceramic tiles.

Or If you’re looking for a bit of colour …

Who says that practical has to be boring! Available is a great choice of colours and finishes, Altro Whiterock Satin  wall cladding is available in a range of shades – from soothing and healing through to bright and energetic. Or if you’d prefer a high end gloss finish, there is Altro Whiterock Chameleon.
If you’re looking for a completely bespoke, custom finish you should consider Altro Whiterock Digiclad. Let your imagination run wild and design your own wall covering by adding a logo, graphic or image and create a truly original, hygienic, custom wall cladding.

So whether you’re looking to create a brightly coloured wet room or sophisticated hotel
reception, we’re sure we’ll be able to find a hygienic and stylish solution for you.

Also available as Splashbacks

Hygienic, low-maintenance and convenient, Altro Whiterock Splashbacks are an easy to
install alternative to tiles. They can be used in conjunction with other Altro Whiterock
products, perhaps to give a splash of contrasting colour, or they can be used as a
standalone alternative to a tiled splashback. Available in a range of sizes to suit most
hand wash basins and vanity units, or custom sized for the perfect fit, Altro Whiterock

Splashbacks come in a vast array of colours and finishes and are complemented by colour-
matched sealants.

The good news is that all of Altro Whiterock wall coverings offer great hygiene benefits
and a stain-resistant, wipe-clean surface. At Flooring Matters we are trained to be
able to guide you through the process of choosing the correct Altro products to suit
your own project requirements.
