Altro Walkway safety flooring was specified for the new building of a nursing home in Zatec in the Czech Republic to create a homely, safe and hygienic environment for its elderly and disabled residents.

Executed in January 2012, the flooring project involved the installation of 1,840 square metres of Altro Walkway in three colours, Tango, River and Tarragon, in the bathrooms, corridors and communal areas. In addition to its proven functional properties, the safety flooring’s bright finish contributed towards creating a comfortable and cheerful environment for the residents. The colour contrast between the walls and floors would also help with navigation and awareness of room proximity for those with diminished sight or dementia sufferers.

Altro Walkway delivers several benefits to the application environment including providing an impervious, easy-to-clean solution for wet rooms such as bathrooms, shower rooms and catering areas where hygiene is vital; a slip resistance value (SRV) of 36 or above using the Pendulum Test that lasts through the lifetime of the installation; and ability to provide underfoot traction to assist with safe walking.

Providing style without compromising on durability, safety and hygiene performance, Altro Walkway can be trusted for patients, carers, staff and visitors in healthcare environments.
