Companies are duty-bound to provide a healthy and safe workplace for their employees. By assessing risks, including the potential for slip and trip incidents, and taking action to control those risks, employers can create a safe environment that will ensure the wellbeing of all occupants.
Altro Stronghold 30, a specialist kitchen safety floor from Altro Flooring and Walling, has a Pendulum Test Value (PTV) of ≥55/ R12, meaning it is proven to provide the highest level of safety and slip resistance.
An Altro Stronghold 30 floor reduces the risk of slipping to less than one in a million with common commercial kitchen spills, making it the perfect long-term kitchen solution for wet and greasy floors.
Not all R12 floors are created equal
Altro Stronghold 30/K30 is a homogenous product without a wear layer. The aggregates that make the flooring slip-resistant are present all the way through the product, ensuring that the slip resistance never wears off.
Additionally, Altro Stronghold 30/K30 is 3mm thick with reinforcing aggregates throughout the entire thickness compared to alternatives that only offer 2mm thick products with a 0.7mm wear layer. Based on Altro’s 60-plus years of experience in commercial kitchen fitouts, these alternatives cannot stand the abuse in harsh environments.
Altro Stronghold 30 safety floors keep staff safe from slips and also help reduce their fatigue, thanks to the 3mm thickness that provides comfort underfoot and also reduces noise.
Thanks to the sustained slip resistance of Altro safety flooring, there is no need to change the floors periodically. Altro safety flooring has some of the longest and most comprehensive guarantees in the industry.
Easy to clean
All Altro flooring products contain Altro Easyclean technology for ease of cleaning. Moreover, the high chemical and stain resistance will ensure long-term integrity of the floor while minimising maintenance cost.
All Altro products are HACCP approved and provide hygienic surfaces.
Richard Mallett, European Director of HACCP International:
"Altro products are one of the few worldwide flooring and walling products to have achieved HACCP International certification for non-food services and supplies, which means that they have been assessed by a third party and found to be satisfactory and hygienic for use in a food environment. Both the flooring and walling products from Altro offer the seamless and impervious solution, which means that there is nowhere for bacteria to hide, as well as being easy to clean, both important issues in the food industry."
