An extremely important facet of BMH are the secure transitions between materials in high risk areas. The risk of weaponization and self-harm that comes with standard transitions prevents the use of many trim pieces. For example, regulations forbid the use of standard flooring cap strip in mental health installations, for fear of tampering and weaponization.

In lieu of a cap strip, Altro flooring can be terminated into the Altro Whiterock wall system via a variety of methods that do not require the use of traditional flooring cap strips. Altro has developed various joining methods between different surfaces which allow for hygienic construction without the need for potentially hazardous transition pieces.
