Altro Safety Flooring for Rail

Altro have been designing and producing high quality rail safety flooring for almost sixty years. Here at Altro we pride ourselves on our drive to transform transport spaces for the people who use them, putting design-led innovation at the core of everything we do. We appreciate that train interiors are a large part of the on-board experience that modern passengers demand, so we partner with you to deliver more visually appealing, safe, compliant, and environmentally conscious rail cars.

Our lightweight train floor material offers:

  • reduced slip risk of one in a million, with minimum sustained slip resistance of PTV ≥36
  • a range of compliance certifications, meaning that there is a floor for every application
  • wide ranging colour palettes, with the option of choosing a unique custom design unique to suit your branding and installation
  • lighter weight than competition products
  • compatibility with our self-adhesive solution, allowing you to streamline your installation saving time, emissions and up to 60% on adhesive weight per square metre

Altro train flooring can be seen in a range of applications across the world, including a variety of different types of rolling stock, stations and even cable cars. From the companies specifying, to the experts fitting the floor, to the passengers who will be relying on your rail service, we’re committed to creating train floor material which positively impact all individuals who might come into contact with it.

Rail Safety Flooring

Here at Altro, safety is our highest priority. We’re proud that we offer imperative weight and compliancy features without ever compromising on our safety credentials. It’s important that passengers have the best protection underfoot to minimise the risk of slips or falls, no matter if the service is busy or what might contaminate the floor. The slip resistant aggregates in Altro rail floors are distributed throughout the thickness of the floor to ensure strong contact between the floor and the shoe. All Altro rail floors achieve pendulum test values of 36 as a minimum, guaranteed for the lifetime of the floor. We’re so proud of our safety credentials that we are the only manufacturer to list all of our safety test results on our sample cards.

Design for Rail Interiors

We ensure that whatever your vision, we can help produce the modern, inviting environments that modern passengers expect. Beyond the sample card, we give you the opportunity to create entirely custom designs with complete colour freedom with both the base and aggregate colours (subject to moq). Why not try out our kit cutting and logo service? Using our precision cutting equipment, we can make any logo or design out of our flooring products, from your company branding to useful wayfinding logos.
