Altro flooring to remedy water ingress in this bustling hospital

Altro Stronghold 30, Altro Whiterock

Hospital Asil of Granollers is a health and social care facility that is part of the Public Use Health Network in Spain. The Foundation is composed of the Geriatric Centre Adolfo Montañá and the General Hospital of Granollers, which serves nearly 400,000 living in the Vallès Oriental, Barcelona region. The hospital offers a wide range of services in modern facilities.

The hospital kitchen has 28 workers, serving three meals a day for all hospital patients and staff. Previously, the kitchen had issues with water leakage into the subfloor. The problem needed to be resolved quickly without interrupting the key catering service.

Euroline, an engineering, design and installation company, suggested Altro safety flooring and hygienic wall protection for the project. Altro Stronghold 30 flooring and Altro Whiterock wall protection, when installed together, creates a water tight and impervious solution for commercial kitchens, preventing water ingress and providing the safety and hygiene needed for busy kitchens.

“Five years ago, a vinyl flooring from a different manufacturer was installed but it did not solve our water ingress problem,” said Jofre Balagué, Chief of General Services at the hospital. “Euroline has installed Altro in other projects and were confident that it was the right choice for us.”

“All customers require the maximum guarantee of safety and hygiene, but hospitals in particular must strictly follow these parameters,” said Jordi Cabrera de Luque, Commercial Director of Euroline.

Euroline installed 6400ft² of Altro Stronghold 30 in the kitchen, hallways and common areas and 1000ft² of Altro Whiterock in areas with high humidity.

“We chose Altro flooring for its easy and quick installation and slip-resistance,” said Tània Luis Ferrer, Supervisor of General Services. “The installation was completed quickly and had minimal disruption of services. Euroline recommended Altro was the best option for us.”
