Altro wall cladding used in groundbreaking clinical design

Altro wall cladding used in groundbreaking clinical design

Altro Whiterock ChameleonTM has been used along with Altro UnityTM 25 safety flooring to create a groundbreaking solution within the new Endoscopy Unit at Mount Vernon Hospital, in Northwood, Middlesex, where infection control and patient wellbeing are paramount considerations.

Design challenges included the electric sliding doors to the endoscopy recovery bay. These are glazed with the mechanism built into a steel structure in the walls. The door set also contains a fire shutter, which will drop down in an emergency to protect the unit.

Bernard Stilwell Architects designed and managed the project, they explained "We have specified Altro safety flooring several times before. Altro Whiterock was a first (for us) and an excellent choice: a good range of colours and the potential for a seamless appearance across a variety of surfaces. It helped us unify the appearance of the interiors, to produce a calm, harmonious, well ordered end result.”

Altro Unity 25 safety flooring was also used in the new ward. Like all Altro safety flooring, it offers sustained slip resistance for the lifetime of the product, keeping your risk of a slip to just 1 in a million. Available in 18 plain and chipped modern colours, this heavy duty safety flooring is ideal for locations that need to look good and work hard.
