Client: John Wheatley College
Contractor: CL Flooring
Type of works: supply and installation of Altro Walkway and Altro Maxis Easyclean.

The hairdressing and beauty salon at John Wheatley College in Glasgow has a revamped new look, thanks to a flooring makeover by Altro.

The college chose to install Altro Walkway, which celebrates its 21st birthday this year and has an unrivalled track record.

With a 10 year warranty, unparalleled technical support and strong customer references, Altro Walkway is assured of all of the high quality for which Altro is renowned.

Altro Walkway is a 2mm safety flooring that is ideal for a wide range of locations where underfoot safety is required. With 18 colours to choose from, including natural tones alongside dramatic bold shades, there is a colour to suit all needs. It is hard-wearing, robust enough to deal with heavy foot traffic and offers lasting slip-resistance. Altro Maxis Easyclean technology also ensures lasting good looks and ease of maintenance.

John McKay, Facilities Manager at John Wheatley College, said: “The previous flooring in the salon was also Altro Walkway, which after many years of use it had kept its appearance and slip resistance. I have no doubt that our old Walkway flooring could have stood up to years of further wear and tear, but this year we had the budget to carry out a larger programme of refurbishment that included the salon.

“It made sense for us to replace like-for-like, as from experience we know Altro Walkway is robust enough to stand up to daily pounding. I’m confident that our new Walkway flooring will help to keep our staff, students and visitors safe for the next decade or even longer.”

Craig Liddell, CL Flooring, said: “We have installed Altro Walkway at many educational establishments, as we know it really does stand the test of time. We’ve been working with Altro Walkway since we first started in business and have never had any technical issues or customer complaints. The same cannot be said about some other manufacturers’ products!”
