New Altro Illustra draws inspiration from the natural world

ALTRO says it continues to innovate with the launch of Altro Illustra which it describes as a class-leading safety floor with stunning natural aesthetic designs and the option to go adhesive-free to save carbon, money and time.

The latest development from Altro draws inspiration from the natural world with a range that delivers ‘visual texture and softness yet provides all the performance characteristics you’d expect from the long-established surfaces innovator and authority on safety flooring’.

Says the company: ‘With sustainability ever-higher on the agenda, Altro Illustra is available in adhesive-free and traditional adhered options, providing versatility and flexibility for various installation requirements. Whichever option you choose, Altro Illustra is engineered to offer superior slip-resistance, minimising the risk of accidents.

‘It comes with Altro’s ‘One in a Million’ slip risk for life guarantee – proven sustained slip-resistance for the life of the floor. It provides excellent underfoot protection, even in wet and high-traffic areas, enhancing safety for everyone who walks on it, so with Altro Illustra, you can ensure the safety, visual appeal and sustainability of your large spaces.’

The company continues: ‘Whether you’re creating an inviting learning environment, a comfortable care facility, an attractive retail space or a welcoming hospitality venue, Altro Illustra is the perfect flooring solution to bring your vision to life.

‘The floor is available in three distinct pattern groups with visual textures to bring depth to your designs: natural stones, modern textiles and muted minerals. These designs offer a harmonious blend of style and functionality with nature-inspired textures and softness to help create and enhance feeling of wellbeing within spaces.’

Adds Altro: ‘If you’re looking for excellent sustainability credentials, opt for Altro Illustra adhesive-free for a diverse selection of modern and flexible designs, coupled with many more benefits. With Altro Illustra adhesive-free you can save up to 50% embodied carbon and up to 35% in cost, making it the perfect choice where sustainability and price matter most.

‘Where downtime is a concern, Altro Illustra adhesive-free saves up to 50% installation time compared to adhered safety floors. It is ideal for busy public spaces where disruption needs to be minimal, plus there are no associated adhesive odours. Using Altro’s award-winning adhesive-free installation method, it can be welded and walked on the same day, and at the end of its life can be removed easily, allowing it to be reused or recycled.’

In addition to its sustainability, style and safety features, Altro Illustra offers what the company describes as easy maintenance and durability, incorporating Altro Easyclean technology. The floor is designed to withstand heavy foot traffic and resist stains, making it suitable for busy environments. Its hygienic properties reportedly make it an excellent choice for care homes and healthcare facilities, where cleanliness is of utmost importance.

Altro Illustra is available in 13 colours, across 3 designs: natural stones, modern textiles and muted minerals. Its Illustra adhesive-free is available in 18 colours across the three designs and is said to provide sound reduction of 14dB as well as superior slip resistance (PTV > 36, R10) for the life of the flooring and comes with a 10-year guarantee.
