Medium and light-duty commercial kitchens

Not all kitchens are created equal, and not every space requires the most slip-resistant flooring. However, a degree of slip resistance is required, even in these less-busy environments, to ensure safe working conditions.

Other Altro flooring, such as our Altro Walkway 20 and Altro Reliance 25, are better suited for lower-trafficked kitchens that experience only water or dry contamination.

Durable and easy-to-clean walls are still necessary, though, to prevent moisture and bacteria buildup.

Considerations

  • Foot traffic
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Carts and other rolling loads
  • Comfort underfoot
