Industrial areas, commercial kitchens, dishwashing,
and other heavy-duty flooring needs
Showers, locker rooms, pool and spa decks
Altro flooring is suitable for many commercial areas but how do you know when to specify safety flooring?
It is designers, specifiers and end-users’ responsibility to ensure flooring is fit for purpose and it’s part of our role here at Altro to help make this process easy. Our flooring is separated into three categories: safety, slip resistant and smooth. These categories have been created to help assist you in specifying the floor that is right for the application type and any contaminants that may be present on a regular basis.
Are contaminants present?
Areas that commonly see many contaminants such as oils, soaps, grease or constant spillages of water require extra care when selecting flooring. We recommend Altro safety flooring that meets R12 or R11 levels of slip resistance for these areas.
Typical areas with contaminants
- Industrial areas
- Commercial kitchens
- Dishwashing areas
- Food and beverage production
- Locker rooms
- Pool and spa decks
General use areas that are not riddled with contaminants will be secure with our slip resistant or smooth offerings. By choosing wisely, you can reduce the risks of slips and falls as much as 1 in a million.
