New Altro Aquarius – perfect for wet and dry, shoe and barefoot useThe latest technological breakthrough from Altro brings you a safety flooring for combined shoe and barefoot use. This evolution is not just for soft soled shoe use, but any, including hard soled, rubber and trainers; making it perfect for a host of applications.

Achieving a pendulum test value of ≥36 and Class B to DIN51097 for barefoot use, Altro Aquarius™ provides optimum slip resistance in wet and dry environments.

This innovation revolutionises product selection for potentially wet areas. It takes away the uncertainty of how and where to specify and install safety flooring for mixed barefoot and shoe use. Studded safety flooring currently provides the perfect solution for barefoot individuals and soft soled shoe wearers in wet locations, such as pool surrounds and showers. When it comes to general wet areas, for example bathrooms, shower and changing rooms, typical usage is much more diverse. Frequently, wet and barefoot users share the environment with people who are dry and sporting a variety of footwear. This can prove problematical when it comes to specifying and installing flooring. You currently have to assess the risk to those in shoes or barefoot and whether to install studded or standard safety flooring. Not any more.

Inspired by customer feedback, Altro Aquarius spent three years in development to guarantee performance in wet and dry, shoes or barefoot. Altro Aquarius has been extensively tested on a variety of shoes to ensure safety, including: rubber, soft soled, hard soled, trainers, leather soled and slippers. Most importantly, test results give you the confidence to select a product that really delivers, every time, all the time.

These scenarios place seemingly incompatible demands on the flooring. Altro Aquarius caters for all these requirements and more. Install one product, eliminate the risk.
