In busy public areas, clad your existing doors to protect them where they need it most, helping prevent scuff and impact damage. Simply order the standard Altro Fortis Titanium sheet, and cut it to size, fitting it to the height you need. You can also cut it down to use as kickplates and pushplates. If you prefer, we can do the hard work for you, let us know the size you require and we’ll cut it for you.

Altro sets clinical standard for new medical centre
Altro’s flooring and wall cladding systems are proving their clinical capabilities in a new state-of-the-art primary healthcare facility in Maidstone, Kent, where safety and infection control are paramount.
Redeveloped from an existing building by main contractor Willmott Dixon Interiors, Albion Place Medical Centre combines a local GP practice with services provided by Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership, plus an on-site pharmacy.
The three-storey medical centre – procured by specialist medical facility developer GPIC Ltd – was designed by GDM Architects. Senior architect Ben Jugoo says, “We chose Altro’s range of products because of their suitability for clinical environments in terms of safety and hygiene. They also offer a great range of colours, tones and textures, which gives us the flexibility to create an appealing, modern, design-led environment, while keeping within strict health guidelines.
For the circulation spaces on all three floors of the medical centre, and on the staircase, Ben and his team selected Altro Wood Safety.
“We have specified this product before for a medical facility and it proved very successful,” says Ben.
Altro Suprema safety flooring was specified for the staff changing area, very much with design in mind. Ben explains: “Here, we wanted to use bold design, while also providing excellent slip resistance.”
Altro Walkway 20 SD (static dissipative) safety flooring, was chosen for the computer server room. To minimise the damage from trolleys and buggies in circulation areas, GDM specified Altro Fortis corner protection for all external corners in the building.
“Equipment banging into walls can quickly cause scuffs and worse damage, so we wanted to give corners a tough extra layer,” explains Ben. For the medical centre’s showers and hand basin splashbacks, GDM opted for Altro Whiterock Chameleon. Altro Whiterock and Altro Fortis were installed at the medical centre by Goss Environmental Coatings. Managing director George Goss comments: “Altro’s excellent customer service and reliability helped the project to go very smoothly.”
The Altro flooring was installed in the new medical centre by Maurice Blackman Contract Floors and Walls. Matt Horton, Project Surveyorfor main contractor Willmott Dixon Interiors, says: “The finished results look very good in terms of finish and over quality. Both Willmott Dixon Interiors and the client are delighted with the outcome.”
The medical centre’s Practice Manager, Sue Smith, comments: “The new practice building is a huge step up for us compared with our old premises. We now have a modern, bright, comfortable environment that’s a pleasure to be in for both staff and patients. Cleaning is easy and we have had no issues with keeping the flooring and walling throughout the practice looking like new. Overall we are thrilled with our new space.”
University of Vermont choose Altro Stronghold 30
Fire pits. Greenery. Heavy timber. The Garden Atrium at the University of Vermont Medical Centre didn’t just fill the final shelf space – its project design embraced elements of the Vermonter way.
The Ambulatory Care Centre, constructed 12 years ago, left a blank space to eventually house a cafeteria and lounge. Now, providing a calming, restorative space, the Garden Atrium connects visitors and family members to the outdoor gardens, and some produce, herbs and spices used in the food can be seen growing from the cafeteria.
Scott + Partners Architects of Essex Junction, Vermont, chose Altro Stronghold 30, and not just for its excellent slip resistance. The kitchen is right above a laboratory space and adjacent to a formal meeting room; Altro Stronghold 30 provided the necessary acoustics as it’s much quieter than quarry tile.
The other hospital kitchens use quarry tile, so Scott + Partners sought a higher quality product for the Garden Atrium – mainly due to grout joints, which deteriorate over time and can become a hotbed for germs and bacteria. With welded seams and an integral coved base, Altro Stronghold 30 avoids all of quarry tile’s issues, looks much better than unappealing grout and performs better.
“The installer was briefed on all necessary technical details for specialty items like floor sinks, seams, coving up the walls, terminations, etc., and the installation went flawlessly,” said John Alden, a Principal at Scott + Partners Architects.
According to Alden, the dependability of Altro throughout the many years they’ve used our products brought them to using them once again.
"Altro always installs well, and the sub-contractors handle it easily. The support services from Altro are the best, and the owner is enjoying the new floor for all the right reasons” said Alden.
Alden noted that Altro’s customer service was exceptional throughout the entire process, not just the initial purchase, and the flooring is doing exactly what they said it would do: be comfortable and quiet underfoot, contain no grout joints and look great.
“Everyone goes home happy,” Alden said.
