Chick-fil-A® corporate teaching kitchen installs Altro Whiterock

Altro Whiterock hygienic wall paneling is helping to provide a practical, functional solution in a corporate teaching kitchen facility of Chick-fil-A®.

Chick-fil-A® is the second largest quick-serve chicken restaurant chain in the United States, with over 1,700 locations in 39 states. Chick-fil-A® has set itself apart by pioneering innovations and delicious products. This privately held and family owned franchise has had 45 years of consecutive sales growth.

The teaching facility, located in Atlanta, GA, is one of the facilities that potential franchisees would attend. The facility has four separate kitchens. One for dessert development, one for sides, one for entrees and another for feeding VIP’s as well as visiting franchisees.

This teaching facility was looking for a wall product that was durable, impact resistant and contained a high level of hygienic properties.

A mockup of Altro Whiterock was created for the owners and architects in a warehouse as a test installation. Everyone was very impressed with how Altro Whiterock performed.

After several weeks of testing, about 220 panels of Altro Whiterock were specified. Half of these panels were color Linen, while the other half was color Oyster. These wall panels were used as wainscot in some of the kitchens and full height in the wash areas.

Altro Whiterock is often used as a protective cover or wainscoting in areas with heavy traffic due to its extreme durability and impact resistance. Altro Whiterock is a cost effective sheet extruded from a high quality, food safe PVCu polymer for operating temperatures up to 140°.

Altro Whiterock wall panels are ideally suited for areas in which hygiene, durability, safety and ease of cleaning are all mission critical. These are all factors that are of the upmost importance in an area where food is being prepared, making Altro Whiterock and obvious choice for any commercial kitchen installation.

FDA Guidelines state the floor and wall finishes must be durable, easy to clean and non-absorbent. Altro is the premium flooring choice for demanding environments such as commercial kitchens.
