“These two products are a proven and very popular combination for commercial kitchens, because together they provide the ultimate in safety, practicality, hygiene and easy cleaning. They look great too; very clean and stylish together,” continued Jon.

Altro Whiterock White is the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impact- resistant, grout-free and easy to clean. Its smooth white surface and classical purity make it a timeless choice for any interior. Altro Whiterock is made from a high-quality, food-safe PVCu polymer that can handle temperatures up to 60°C. It meets all current European Union (EU) Directives on health and hygiene.

Altro Stronghold 30 safety flooring achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip- resistance and is designed to minimise risk in wet and greasy conditions for the lifetime of the flooring. As well as helping to keep staff safe from slips, it also helps reduce their fatigue thanks to its 3mm thickness which provides noise-reduction and comfort underfoot.

Altro Stronghold 30 is frequently specified with Altro Whiterock White and Altro Whiterock Satins to create safe and hygienic environments in commercial and industrial kitchens. Like all Altro walling and flooring products, Altro Whiterock and Altro Stronghold 30 are Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)

approved - just one of the factors that makes them a particularly suitable combination for this environment.

“For the area behind the servery, we selected Altro safety flooring in a dark blue black with white decorative chips. Very striking, but also highly practical and ideal for hard working areas where safety is important,” Jon added.

Aztek Interiors were appointed to carry out the installation.

Managing Director, John Hudson, said: “Adding modern aspects to old buildings like Jamaica Inn demands a great deal of respect and care, and we needed to come up with some creative solutions.

“We prepared the kitchen floor with a damp proof membrane (DPM) and a layer of Latex. While that was drying, we fitted 140m2

floor to ceiling, putting a lip between each sheet and a joining strip at the bottom and sides.”

The contractors measured the product and laid it out on the floor first before peeling it back, applying AltroFix 19 Plus adhesive and then securing the flooring back in place.

They laid the flooring 100mm up the kitchen wall, which then clipped onto the base of the Altro Whiterock sheets, creating a nice smooth, seamless transition.

Behind the servery, fitted 40m2


Altro safety flooring was fitted, again taking it 100mm up the wall to create a nice finish.

“Two of us were on site over a three- week period, and we had the usual challenges of a tight timescale and working closely with other trades on site. But, overall, the project went very well,” John added

The installation proved a great success and Jamaica Inn is delighted with its new kitchen and servery, which are now both finished and operational.

Facilities Manager, Richard Jackson, said: “The flooring and walling make a significant positive impact to the inn, both front and back of house.

“Our new kitchen is a huge improvement on what we had before, and the staff are so pleased with it. We now have a light, bright space which looks great and functions like a modern, practical kitchen.

“We are very happy with what we have achieved with Altro products in our new ventures, and we are talking to Altro about the flooring and walling options for our other expansion plans, including extensions to the bar and cellar, as well as a new farm shop.” HOTEL & LEISURE | 31
