Altro Suprema II

Now available in a full palette of 40 colours, Altro Suprema™ II offers extensive design opportunities, and is a perfect solution for areas where safety flooring has never been utilised before. Altro Suprema II is a major development in design-led, low maintenance safety flooring, without the industrial-looking sparkle of traditional safety flooring. Most importantly, it is the first safety flooring range to incorporate ground-breaking Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR™ technology, which can reduce cleaning and maintenance costs throughout the product’s life by up to 60%.

For the specifier, Altro Suprema II is the perfect combination of practicality and creativity. Achieving R10 for Slip Resistance, it offers outstanding slip resistance. But the huge palette of 40 colour options – probably the largest choice of any safety flooring range in the world today – means that aesthetics do not have to be compromised.

Altro Suprema II is the company’s most extensive design-led safety flooring range to date. Developed in consultation with architects, end users and colour consultants, the 40 colours, including 10 chipped designs, have been chosen to anticipate future colour and interior design directions, as well as interpreting current trends. The moods that can be created range from subtle and understated, to bold and inventive. And with the peace of mind of Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR technology, you can now select Altro Suprema II for areas that, historically, would not have used safety flooring. Lighter colours can also be chosen with confidence for even the most demanding high traffic areas, such as hospital wards and corridors, aged care facilities and educational sites.

Where optimum safety and hygiene are critical, Altro Suprema II provides a fully integrated wall and floor system, in conjunction with Altro Whiterock™ wall cladding, for use in the widest range of health environments. Both product ranges include integral Altrosan™ bacteriostat, which does not support the growth of MRSA and similar organisms. The compatibility of the materials, and the ease with which they can be coved and welded, makes them ideal (individually or collectively) for installations such as hospitals, operating theatres, laboratories and children’s activity areas..

Cleanability of new Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR

In independent laboratory tests, new Altro Easyclean Maxis PUR technology demonstrated industry-leading ease of cleaning, excellent resistance to staining and chemicals, ground-breaking long-term dirt pick-up performance and colour retention. Pristine appearance can be retained with a less stringent cleaning regime, less water, and fewer chemicals, resulting in significant reductions in lifecycle costs. The advanced PUR technology is incorporated throughout the wear layer, meaning that these benefits are retained throughout the product’s lifecycle – offering levels of performance surpassing other available PURs.

Sustainability

Altro Suprema II achieves the highest possible BRE Global generic environment ratings of A+/A in the major building applications of Health, Education, Retail and Commercial. New Altro Suprema II also establishes new levels of sustainability for this industry sector, as the first safety flooring product range to incorporate bioplasticisers supplied from a renewable resource.

As with all Altro safety flooring, the Altro Suprema II range is 100% recyclable and contains post-consumer waste as an integral raw material. Some Altro safety flooring products have up to 20% recycled content.
