Altro Stronghold™ 30 has been chosen as a flooring solution for Hospital Sabadell in Catalonia. Hospital Sabadell is one of seven centres managed by Parc Taulí
Health Corporation (PUC) and one of the most important in Catalonia, treating 393,000 patients every year.
The floor chosen Altro Stronghold™ 30 in a gray tone. 920 m² was installed in food preparation areas and the adjacent corridors. OJordi Culubret i Crous, architect and head of the hospital service works, said "We chose Altro because we found it was the best quality slip-resistant flooring. We value safety, compliance and hygiene".
Altro Stronghold 30 is a 3mm thick flooring which is ideal for industrial kitchens. Altro Stronghold achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance (TRRL≥55, R12). It is designed to minimise risk in environments that often have spills of liquids such as water, oil and other fats. Altro Stronghold 30 has a lifetime slip resistance of 20 years, keeping your risk of a slip or fall to one in a million.
Encarna Escudero, head of the department of nutrition and dietetics from the hospital, was delighted with the new floor: “It’s a wonderful, comfortable and above all safe and slip-resistant flooring, even around the frier, an area which puts workers at more risk because of the spilled fats".
