Damage resistant

Impact testing

Our impact testing video demonstrates the hammer and drop ball tests, designed to show you the durability and impact resistance of ceramic tiles vs Altro Whiterock. As you can imagine, the ceramic tile shatters, the glaze cracks and bits fall off. With Altro Whiterock there is not a scratch, even the 15 pound sledgehammer bounces straight back at our able bodied tester!

Altro Whiterock has extremely high resistance to impact according to BS EN438-2-1991 Drop Ball Test. Impacts that leave ceramic faces damaged and vulnerable to water ingress barely make a scratch on this tough surface proving that Altro Whiterock provides a smooth, tough, durable, stain-resistant surface.
