The University of Waterloo continues to look at Altro products for all sheet flooring needs

The University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada is a leader in environmental education, architecture, the arts, psychology and human health. The five campus facility of 33,800 full and part time students, has made the list of “Most Innovative” amongst Canadian universities every year for the past twenty years.Further representing the university’s commitment to innovation is their long standing relationship with the revolutionary safety and smooth flooring products from Altro.

The durability and ease of maintenance behind Altro products were the main selling points for the university, needing a product that could withstand heavy traffic and required simple cleaning procedures. The University of Waterloo has been using Altro products for the past twelve years, originally installing Altro Designer 25 Jet in corridors and meeting rooms. Since the initial success with Altro, the university has never considered any other sheet products for these types of applications within their facilities. The most recent installation featured 2500 m² of Altro Walkway 20, 400 m² of Altro Designer 25, and 300 m² of Altro Quartz Tile. These products were installed in circulation, reception and vending areas.

The University of Waterloo has over a decade of experience installing and maintaining Altro products. A great working relationship between Altro and the university has resulted in a number of successful installations with hopes of more to come.
