Deciding on flooring is not something that can be done lightly. If you are renovating or updating your commercial or residential space, you need to think about what works both from an aesthetic point of view and a functional one.
For that reason alone, choosing flooring is a balancing act. We all want something that’ll look great when it’s first laid, but also just as good years down the line. This is sometimes easier said than done in high-traffic areas, or parts of the building that see a lot of dirt, damp, or heavy furniture.
What you might not know is that Altro safety flooring is one of the best flooring types, particularly for kitchens, wet rooms, and bathrooms. It’s a durable flooring option resistant to damaging elements like moisture – but it doesn’t feel as ‘rough and ready’ as some of the heavy-duty alternatives.
At AOC Flooring, we like to think that Altro flooring gives you the best of both worlds. Designed to cope with high-demand spaces, this flooring type doesn’t need any specific maintenance to keep it clean or damage-free, and it has a number of particular safety benefits that hardwood or luxury vinyl does not.
Altro Aquarius, for instance, is perfect for clients looking for a solid wet and dry area. It has a specialist solution for wet areas, without being contaminated by-products like shampoo and conditioner, but it is also resistant to wear and tear from shoes.
This makes it the number one choice for clients with bathrooms, showers, saunas, or spas to refloor. For those preparing to operate in slippery conditions, Altro Stronghold 30 also has the highest rating for slip resistance – PTV >55, R12 – which means it can prevent slips and falls when the conditions underfoot are wet and greasy. It can also help minimise fatigue with the floor’s 3mm thickness, which provides comfort for feet and reduces noise in the environment.
