ALTRO IS PREMIER CHOICE FOR PRET A MANGER
ALTRO IS PREMIER CHOICE AS PRET A MANGER
EXPANDS INTO PARIS
The combination of Altro StrongholdTM 30 safety flooring and Altro WhiterockTM wall cladding has been so successful in British Pret a Manger kitchens that the products are now being specified in French branches of the restaurant chain.
The latest French Pret a Manger to be fitted with the Altro integrated system has recently opened in Issy les Moulineaux, just outside Paris. This is the ninth Pret a Manger to open in the area, with five opening in 2013 alone.
Pret a Manger - a British-owned company – offers a combination of fresh ingredients and fast food: all the sandwiches and salads are prepared on the day in the restaurant kitchen, with fresh products delivered daily.
At the end of each day, unsold products are donated to charities, so nothing goes to waste. The restaurant chain is known as much for its ethics, its human dimension and its commitment to sustainable development as it for the freshness of its food.
As with all Pret a Manger outlets, the kitchen is at the heart of the new restaurant. Every aspect of its operation needs to be functional so that hot or cold food can be prepared quickly and safely, whatever the time, however busy the restaurant.
This is why Altro’s integrated system has been so successful in British Pret a Manger restaurants - because it compliments this need for functionality in a high-pressure environment, without compromising on aesthetics.
Altro Stronghold 30 safety flooring has been installed in the new Pret a Manger kitchen using a coved skirting, so that it forms an impermeable, continuous surface with Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding. This floor-wall solution is easy to clean, resistant to grime and tough enough to tolerate knocks from trolleys and other kitchen equipment.
Altro Stronghold 30 is a 3mm thick safety flooring designed for use in demanding, wet and greasy conditions where frequent spillage is likely, so it is ideal for commercial kitchen use. Boasting Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance, it also offers long-term durability and ease of cleaning as well as added noise reduction, comfort and strength underfoot. Altro Stronghold boasts a 15 year warranty and offers 20 years’ lifetime sustained slip resistance, keeping your risk of a slip to just one in a million over this period of time.
Altro Whiterock is a cost-effective sheet extruded from a high quality, food safe PVCu polymer for operating temperatures up to 60o. It is waterproof, easy to clean, impact resistant and grout-free. It meets current EU Directives on health and hygiene.
This Altro flooring and walling combination is frequently used in Pret a Manger’s British restaurants, so the management of the French chain decided to replicate the solution in its own outlets.
Pret a Manger Operations Support Manager, Adrien Garcia, said: “The Altro floors and walls in the kitchen can be cleaned with jet washers, which ensures impeccable hygiene while simultaneously saving time on cleaning.
“Our other priority is safety, and the slip-resistant properties of Altro flooring responds perfectly to our demands. In addition, with a certified installer, the installation is extremely quick: the restaurant kitchen at Issy les Moulineaux was completed in one week.”
To match the kitchen, the corridors and cloakrooms in the restaurant have been fitted with Altro WalkwayTM 20 safety flooring, which coordinates perfectly with Altro Stronghold.
Ideal for high traffic areas, Altro Walkway is a hugely popular hard-wearing, 2mm safety flooring, providing lifelong slip and abrasion resistance. Additional benefits include superior chemical and indentation resistance, which adds to its excellent durability. It has a life expectancy and sustained slip resistance of 15 years.
The area behind the counter in the restaurant has also been fitted with Altro Walkway 20, allowing for fast service and maintenance.
By specifying Altro products for its British, and now French, restaurants, Pret a Manger has invested in the prevention of accidents, the long-term safety of its staff, and has set the highest standards of hygiene for its kitchens.

Residential college choose easily maintained
flooring and wall cladding for new bathroom installations
Ormond College is the largest residential college at the University of Melbourne, with over 400 students and 80 permanent and casual staff. The college needed practical, easily maintained flooring and wall cladding for new bathroom installations. They selected Altro Aquarius™ safety flooring to provide a surface that would be slip-resistant in wet and dry, shoe and barefoot environments - perfect for their ensuite refurbishment. For the ensuite walls, they selected Altro Whiterock Chameleon™. Ormond College loved the fact that it is impact resistant and that they no longer needed to worry about repairs to grout, cracks or chips.
They were impressed with the product’s high end look to match their building design whilst providing safe, easy to clean, hygienic and durable surfaces. The bathrooms, being a wet and dry environment, needed flooring that would be safe under both conditions and under bare feet as well as different types of shoes. With a TRRL ≥36 and Class B safety rating, along with Altro’s long warranties, 15 years sustained slip-resistance and reputation, they knew they were in safe hands.
Dennis Stammer, Maintenance Manager at Ormond College said, “I have experienced Altro in the past and not only do they have excellent customer service but high quality, top of the range products as well. The bathrooms that we installed using Altro safety flooring and Altro Whiterock Chameleon wall cladding were reasonably priced and of very high quality. I would only recommend and use Altro Aquarius and Altro Whiterock products.”
