Adhesive-free floors collection grows
02 March 2020
Altro has added new ranges to its award-winning, adhesive-free, sustainable floors to offer adhesive-free options for a host of applications in the building.
Benefits include enhanced comfort underfoot and greater sound impact reduction, as well as greater creative freedom as more colour and wood design options give complete flexibility for differing application areas. Altro’s adhesive-free floors also feature the most advanced Altro Easyclean technology, while retaining the benefits of reduced installation time and 100% recyclability.
New Altro Wood adhesive-free floor is a safety wood-look product with easy cleanability; perfect for decorative, homely or biophilic areas. The range has been created with design freedom in mind - Altro Wood adhesive-free shares some designs with Altro Wood Comfort and Altro Wood, allowing you to coordinate floors with different performance criteria across different areas of the building.
The popular Altro Cantata tonal and modernist adhesive-free floor also now has a refreshed palette of colours and designs and improved cleanability.
The new Altro Wood adhesive-free and Altro Cantata ranges are the first floors to use Altro’s innovative underside emboss structure, which provides 14dB impact sound reduction and comfort underfoot. Coupled with exciting, aesthetic options, these ranges are ideal for more public-facing areas, where they will continue to make a great first impression and support the wellbeing of users for the lifetime of the product. Where safety and toughness are the key drivers for hard-working service areas, Altro XpressLay adhesive-free safety floor continues to deliver robust, good looks.
New Altro Wood adhesive-free has 12 wood-look designs, enabling you to create biophilic, stylish, or warm and homely aesthetics together with the safety and durability needed for medium to high traffic areas. With 14dB impact sound reduction, a 10-year guarantee and Altro’s one in a million slip-resistance reassurance, Altro Wood adhesive-free offers high levels of comfort underfoot providing a safe, durable and decorative solution for busy spaces.
Altro Cantata’s 17 colours, designs and textured looks range from subtle, natural shades to terrazzo — organic with a metallic twist — and a selection of concretes allowing you to create an urban chic look. Altro’s most advanced cleaning technology ensures ease of maintenance and enhances infection control with the reduction of bacterial and mould growth by improved cleanability.
Using Altro’s award-winning adhesive-free installation method, you can halve installation time compared with a traditional adhered installation. Depending on substrate condition, a 200m2 corridor would be laid in two days compared with four days with an adhered floor covering, with an approximate 20% cost saving too.
With no DPM and no adhesive required, floors can be welded and walked on the same day. Adhesive-free floors are ideal for busy public spaces where disruption needs to be minimal, plus there are no associated adhesive odours. And at the end of their life, they can be re-used elsewhere or recycled.
Revolutionary, international award-winning Altro XpressLay was the world’s first ever adhesive-free safety floor and was introduced to the market place after 5 years of development and testing. In 2019 Altro XpressLay celebrated its 10th anniversary of providing safe flooring in diverse environments. Altro’s adhesive-free flooring is durable and can tolerate medium to heavy-duty traffic. They hold as effectively as Altro floors installed using adhesive: no rucks, no movement.
