Altro flooring a safe bet after 14 years at Norfolk College

Altro Walkway 20 safety flooring installed 14 years ago at East Norfolk Sixth Form, a top-performing college in the county, is still going strong and has recently passed stringent slip tests. Slip resistance was measured in a high-traffic corridor at the college using the 'pendulum test' method recommended by the HSE. After testing in both wet and dry conditions, the slip resistance of the Altro Walkway flooring after 14 years of use was confirmed as a pendulum value, or TRRL, of 43, well within the 'low' slip risk category which the HSE defines at 36 or above.

The performance of Altro Walkway at the college has led to the product being selected again as part of an ongoing new-build programme - alongside two other Altro safety flooring products. Mike Hodds, maintenance technician at East Norfolk Sixth Form, said: "We are so pleased with the performance of Altro Walkway and Altro in general that we had no hesitation in specifying it again when it came to choosing flooring for corridors in the new buildings," said Mike Hodds. "Slip resistance and ease of maintenance were key factors in our decision, and Altro has proved unbeatable in these areas."

In addition to Altro Walkway, Altro Suprema II safety flooring has been laid in a new catering area in the college, with wood look safety flooring used in the new dining and serving area.Altro Suprema II incorporates Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR Technology for superior cleanability and colour retention.
