Client: Village Vets
Contractor: Woodmoore Flooring
Type of works: supply of Altro Suprema and Altro Easyclean Maxis.
Village Vets found that its traditional safety flooring was trickier to keep clean than some of its canine clients and thus commissioned interior surfaces specialist Altro to help them overcome the problem.
Altro Suprema was installed at four of Village Vets practices across Greater London. Incorporating Altro Easyclean Maxis technology, Altro Suprema offered Village Vets an attractive slip-resistant finish with the added benefits of superb cleanability and colour retention. Altro Suprema is a hard-wearing vinyl safety flooring, offering excellent slip- and impact-resistance. It provides a safe and durable surface for general circulation areas, with an attractive finish with none of the sparkle commonly associated with traditional safety flooring.
Altro Easyclean Maxis technology has been independently proven to outperform competitor products for colour retention and ease-of-cleaning, a claim no other manufacturer can make. In tests carried out by Cleaning Research International, flooring incorporating Altro
Easyclean Maxis technology achieved less dirt pick up and therefore better colour and appearance retention than competitor products.
Robert Moore of Woodmoore Flooring, said: I installed Altro Suprema because its Altro Easyclean Maxis technology means you can achieve a great looking finish that is simple to maintain for years to come. I have been installing Altro products for over 20 years now, and have been impressed with the consistent technical innovations it has introduced to the safety flooring market. Advances like the Easyclean Maxis technology provide real benefits, as Village Vets has found in its practices.
Kirsty Parker, Chief Operating Officer at Village Vets, said: "With our old safety flooring, we found it was incredibly difficult to keep it looking spotless. Cleaning with a mop and bucket just wasnt cutting through the build-up of dirt, and we found that the only way to keep our floors looking clean was by steam cleaning. Since we have installed Altro Suprema, we have been extremely impressed with its ability to retain its appearance. We are now planning on installing Altro Suprema in two further practices within the group.
