Altro Lightweight Flooring Solutions for the Railway Industry
Altro has been developing and manufacturing railway flooring solutions for 60 years, transforming spaces for the people who use them.
We partner with leading rail manufacturers and operators worldwide to create solutions for safe, compliant and inviting travel environments. Our floors have a range of features to make them the ideal solution for any application.
Lightweight rail flooring solutions
Our range of lightweight flooring products for the railway industry offers sustained slip resistance with a minimum pendulum test value (PTV) of 36 mitigating the risk of a slip to one in a million according to HSE’s scale. There are various compliance certifications available, meaning that we provide a solution for most applications.
Varied colour palettes allow designs to be customised to match the installation. Products are compatible with our self-adhesive solution to allow clients to save on installation time, emissions and up to 60% of adhesive weight per square metre.
Altro rail floors have been used across the world for a number of applications, including passenger trains, stations, trams and cable cars.
Slip-resistant flooring for the railway industry
Safety is a priority for Altro rail flooring solutions. Our rail floors contain slip resistant aggregates throughout the thickness of the product to ensure strong contact between the floor and the shoe, even when water is tracked inside the vehicle. The minimum PTV of 36 is guaranteed throughout the lifetime of the solution.
We introduce important weight and compliance features without compromising safety. When services are busy or passengers walk across the train to access various facilities, it is important they have optimal protection to minimise the risk of slips or falls.
Customised flooring designs for railway vehicles
In order to help clients create the modern, inviting interiors that railway passengers expect, we ensure that we can manufacture products according to customer specification. We can create any colour for base and aggregate options, as well as custom design work.
Using our precision cutting equipment, we can make any logo or design out of our flooring products, including bicycle or disabled logos for wayfinding, as well as company branding. Conditions and minimum order quantities apply. Fill out the enquiry form on this page for more information.
Railway flooring designed for high-traffic services
We design our flooring solutions based on the needs of passengers and station visitors. Our floors have high durability, colour retention and cleanability.
All Altro rail floors are constructed to withstand the heavy foot traffic they are subjected to on the daily commute with optimal wear resistance, losing less than 10% of particles in our rigorous laboratory tests.
UV stability is featured to assure clients that the colour of their floors will be protected year after year. When correctly hot-welded, Altro rail floors fully protect the subfloor from water ingress, therefore guarding against installation related failures.
Our acrylic and vinyl rail floors are significantly lighter than other common materials, without affecting safety or durability. All floors are treated with our EasyClean technology, which protects the look and slip resistance of the floor.
Rail flooring industry compliance
We understand that safety and compliance are integral when putting together a train set, which is why our portfolio covers a range of compliance regulations to offer a wide choice of solutions for the relevant specifications.
