Food innovation with Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding
04/03/2015
University College Birmingham (UCB) is based in Birmingham City Centre. There are over 8,000 students on Higher Education, Postgraduate and Further Education programmes. For the Food Innovation Suite, UCB wanted to create hygienic teaching area where students are encouraged to develop new commercial products, analyse the nutritional elements and understand the shelf-life of food products. UCB selected Altro Whiterock White™, Altro Whiterock Satins™ and Altro Whiterock Digiclad™ to meet their design needs.

Altro Whiterock White is a timeless alternative to ceramic tiles where hygiene and durability are paramount. Altro Whiterock Satins provides all the qualities of Altro Whiterock White with a range of solid, satin-finish shades from pastels to vivid brights.

UCB also chose Altro Whiterock Digiclad to provide colourful visuals for the corridors of the Food Innovation suite which perfectly reflect these state-of-the-art facilities.

Altro spread their wings in Spain as Altro Stronghold™ 30/K30 is chosen by KFC

March 2015

Altro spread their wings in Spain as Altro Stronghold™ 30/K30 is chosen by KFC for its new Málaga restaurant

When KFC, the world-famous chain of fried chicken restaurants, opened its new branch in Málaga, Altro Stronghold 30/K30, which has Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance (TRRL≥55, R12), was chosen as the ideal flooring for its kitchen area.

The new restaurant has an area of more than 350m2 which includes the kitchen, plus a large dining room, terrace, playground and parking. The new kitchen is the heart of the business and used seven days a week, including extended opening hours at the weekend, when it’s still operating after midnight.

In addition to a restaurant service, the Málaga branch also features a drive-through, so there is an additional service area which means staff have to cross the food preparation area quickly and often. To ensure the new restaurant is a success, it was important that the kitchen was well planned, including flooring that could cope with such a demanding environment.

Franco Giuseppe Zirotti, KFC’s external architect consultant, needed a safety floor that would perform in terms of slip-resistance, hygiene and cleanability and decided that Altro Stronghold 30 meets these needs.

Zirotti says: “We needed flooring that could be hot-welded to provide an impervious surface. It was also important that it could provide slip resistance, easy maintenance and would be easy to install. After researching several options, we discovered that Altro Stronghold 30 was ideal for KFC’s kitchens, meeting all these needs. In addition, the material is visually appealing and fits perfectly with the look and feel of our facilities. "

Altro Stronghold 30 provides an impervious and continuous surface and is designed to minimise the risk of slips, trips and falls in wet and greasy conditions. Altro Stronghold 30 achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance and this stands throughout its life cycle of 20 years. With a thickness of 3 mm, it copes well with wheeled traffic and the heavy equipment found in an industrial kitchen environment. It is also very comfortable underfoot, benefitting staff, and provides noise reduction.
Altro Stronghold 30 contains Altro Easyclean™ Technology which helps cleaning and maintenance of the flooring throughout its life. Paco Contreras, Manager of the Málaga branch, says: “We work with water, flour and oil which can be difficult to clean but with the new flooring, we’ve significantly reduced the time this takes.”

The slip resistance of Altro Stronghold 30 has been extensively tested using the Pendulum, which mimics the act of a heel striking the ground during walking. Altro has evaluated the flooring using a variety of contaminants including flour, oil and greasy water. The acceptable result for safety flooring is a PTV greater than 36 and for these contaminants Altro Stronghold 30 achieved well in excess of this, demonstrating how robust the flooring is for industrial kitchens.

Zirotti continues: "Altro Stronghold 30 is beyond comparison; on one hand it offers slip resistance for our workers, helping keep them safe, and on the other, it allows us to clean and maintain the flooring in our installations perfectly. With regard to compliance with safety regulations, we know that in having Altro Stronghold, our flooring always exceeds the standard set. Additionally, because it’s so easy to install, it took just one day and we were able to continue with the rest of the project; we would recommend it without hesitation.”
