Trendy and durable Altro Whiterock impresses
Quickly becoming a Chicago breakfast staple, Eastman Egg Company specialises in delicious, farm-fresh egg sandwiches and local craft coffee. Everything on their menu is made to order in under five minutes by people who care about starting your morning right.
Eastman Egg Company’s food truck can be spotted regularly with a queue around the block – a pleasant problem to have! To address this predicament, they recently established their first storefront at The Loop, Chicago’s central business district. Stepping into the shop, it is apparent that the same quality that is put into their delectable offerings is also evident in the interior design selected – modern, simple and rustic.
Altro Whiterock fits this shop in both form and function and was selected not only for its hygienic properties and cleanability, but also for its ability to tie in with the trendy and minimalistic décor. Adding vinyl lettering to Altro Whiterock allowed Eastman Egg Company to display their menu without the huge cost and worry of other permanent options.
Altro have been providing long-lasting, safe and hygienic surfaces for commercial kitchens for over fifty years. Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding, provides a durable covering for internal walls that need to meet strict hygiene standards. Commercial kitchens, like Eastman Egg Company, benefit greatly from the watertight, wipe-clean surfaces.
Altro Whiterock provide sustainable features and the highest hygiene
Rewe Market is one of the leading food retailers in Germany, with sales of 16.9 billion euros (2014). It has more than 90,000 employees and more than 3,300 supermarkets. In addition, the company is distinguished by its commitment to sustainability and its innovative concepts in the industry. This includes newly built or modernised markets following modern standards - such as in Kempten, southern Germany.
The requirements of the Rewe supermarket in Kempten were challenging. The design of the 1,100 square metres of retail space needed to be sustainable and of high quality with a friendly atmosphere. For the meat department Rewe opted for safety flooring and hygienic wall cladding from market leader Altro. The integrated system is made of PVC and is the only system worldwide that has HACCP International certification: the international system for food safety. The safety flooring is recyclable, free of harmful substances and also contain up to 20 % recycled material.
Altro safety flooring was chosen for the area behind the service counters. At 2mm thick, with a PTV ≥36, R10, it offers slip resistance for the lifetime of the flooring. It has PUR technology for easy cleaning and is stain and chemical resistant.
A comfortable floor for the staff was an important consideration as well as the seamless, integrated solution. As Altro’s integrated safety flooring and hygienic wall cladding are impermeable, there is nowhere for bacteria to hide. Unlike tiles, which have porous grout and can be chipped and damaged, Altro’s integrated solution retains its impermeability and prevents water and bacteria ingress, making it easier to clean and maintain.
On the walls of the rear bar area Altro Whiterock Chameleon hygienic wall cladding was used in striking Moulin Rouge. The wall cladding was seamlessly bonded to the substrate to create a watertight seal and ensure the longevity of the installation.
The project had a strict construction schedule. As Altro safety flooring and hygienic wall cladding can quickly be installed and thermoformed on site, the project was completed quickly.
