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 and floor coverings.
Replace your Tiles for a more hygienic Wall Covering
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
• Spa areas
• Retail changing rooms
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 Whiterock 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. Altro Whiterock 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
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 Whiterock 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.
