ALTRO FLOORING AND WALL CLADDING IS ICING ON THE CAKE
ALTRO FLOORING AND WALL CLADDING IS ICING ON THE CAKE
FOR UNIQUE WEDDING VENUE
A popular wedding venue in Hertfordshire has cited Altro as the ‘Rolls Royce’ of flooring and wall cladding and selected a range of the company’s products for a kitchen rebuild following a fire at the end of 2013.
The Priory Barn, situated in Little Wymondley near Hitchin, is established as one of the UK’s top wedding venues and offers a very special atmosphere in unique rural surrounds. It was built in 1541 by James Needham, the King’s carpenter, and local oak cut down in the winter of 1540 was used in its construction.
Catering for weddings takes place in an 18m x 5m purpose-built kitchen alongside the Priory Barn. This timber frame structure was gutted by fire at the end of 2013, which meant a complete rebuild and a new kitchen refit was needed.
Priory Barn owner John Hope explains: “I was adamant that the flooring and wall cladding had to be Altro. In my view they are the Rolls Royce of finishings and their reputation for excellence is second to none. We strive to provide the best for our customers, so I wanted to source the best products for the new kitchen.”
John made contact with local Altro Whiterock Premier Installer Genie Interiors and, with its Managing Director John McCarthy, he made a trip to Letchworth to visit Altro. “Altro showed us a range of flooring and wall cladding and we assessed which ones would be suitable for our needs,” said John Hope. “The products had to be tough, practical, easy to maintain and look good as well.”
“After looking at several alternatives, and discussing the options with Genie Interiors, we selected Altro WhiterockTM wall cladding and 2.5mm Altro™ safety flooring. I was very impressed with what Altro had to offer and with the breadth of their products, applications and ongoing research. Their reputation is very well deserved.”
Altro Whiterock is a cost-effective sheet extruded from a high quality, food safe PVCu polymer for operating temperatures up to 60o. It is easy to clean, impact resistant and grout-free. It meets current EU Directives on health and hygiene.
Altro 2.5mm hard-wearing safety flooring is easy to lay, and can be hot welded to produce an unobtrusive and impervious floor, minimising the ingress of dirt and helping to maintain hygiene standards. It also boasts long-term durability and excellent slip resistance, which are ideal for medium to heavy-duty environments.
The new Altro flooring and wall cladding were installed at the Priory Barn by Genie Interiors, who also carried out the total refit of the new kitchen. MD John McCarthy said: “The key to this project was planning. Turnaround had to be fast because there were weddings booked that needed to be catered for. Genie Interiors is very experienced at working closely with contractors, builders and caterers, so we put together a tight delivery programme which worked very well.
“We are also very accustomed to working with Altro products and we won’t install anything else because we believe they are the best. Altro Whiterock is proven to be the best on the market for durability, ease of cleaning and aesthetics. It’s an all-round winner. Altro 2.5mm safety flooring is ideal for this application because it’s designed for functional kitchens and is cost-effective.
“The team put up 85m2 of Altro Whiterock and laid 100m2 of Altro safety flooring. Overall the project went very smoothly, and we worked closely with Altro to deliver the best results. The existing floor was slab only, so at one stage we brought in Altro’s technical team to discuss how best to prepare the base before laying the flooring. We applied a coat of Latex, a dpm, then another coat of Latex. That’s the good thing about Altro, the support is always excellent.”
John Hope now has a fully operational new kitchen, just in time for peak wedding season – and he couldn’t be happier. “I am delighted, and very relieved, that the project is now finished. The fire could have caused us much worse problems, but thanks to Genie Interiors and the other contractors working so well together, it was completed in just 15 weeks.
“The workmanship of the flooring and wall cladding installation is superb. It looks very smart indeed; the colours, the finish – absolutely spot on. I have also had some very positive feedback from the cleaning team who have reported it is very easy to maintain. I wouldn’t hesitate in using Altro again – it pays to invest in the best for long-term peace of mind.”

Healing Design A Boost For Beaumont
Research has revealed that the environment surrounding a hospital patient can be a significant factor in the healing process and contribute to the speed of recovery. An holistic approach can have a positive psychological effect and play an important role in improving the patient's well-being.
The careful selection of colours, materials and lighting has also been proven to have beneficial effects on the morale of the many healthcare professionals entrusted with the care of patients.It is an approach that has been embraced by Beaumont Hospital in Dublin, one of Ireland's biggest and busiest general hospitals, as part of its on-going refurbishment programme. One element in the overall design scheme is the use of highly colourful Altro Whiterock pvc wall cladding from the 'Chameleon Collection'.
Developed to increase design options with a fresh choice of solid colours, all with a high gloss finish, Chameleon offers a range of natural colours to bright, vibrant tones.
Used in innovative stripes and custom patterns at various locations on different floor levels, the walling breaks the monotony of the corridors, protects the walls from being damaged by trolleys and so reduces the risk of contamination such as MRSA.
The impact-resistant and hygienic characteristics of Altro 'Chameleon', along with the vibrant colours such as 'Juicy Lucy', 'Eau de Chic' and 'Feng Shui', were considered highly critical in the decisionmaking process. A 10-year product warranty and the Altrosan integral biocide were important features from the hospital's perspective too.The Chameleon walling was installed in various custom designs and patterns over several months, the end result being a dramatic transformation of the whole ambience within Beaumont Hospital.
