Torbay Hospital is South Devon’s main hospital. It is run by Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust. The eye clinic at the hospital required a floor refurbishment as the old carpet floor tiles were no longer suitable. The hospital needed a floor in blue to complement adjacent finishes. Altro met with the ward and building supervisors to discuss floor options. The Estates Building Supervisor worked closely with and was fully supported by Altro to choose the right product for the clinic. It was decided to use Altro Orchestra in ‘Bassoon’ and ‘Soul’ and helped the hospital to create a design for the eye clinic.
For areas where comfort and sound reduction are important, 2.85mm Altro Orchestra has been engineered to create the ideal environment to learn and live. Low residual indentation facilitates the flexible use of equipment and furniture, including hospital beds. At the same time, the integrated impact sound insulation system cuts impact sound by up to 15dB. It offers comfort underfoot making life easier on the feet of students and patients but particularly hard-working staff who spend countless hours on the move. With a palette of 40 colours and designs varying from calming neutrals reflecting tones of nature, to vibrant shades, Altro Orchestra allows you to create the right atmosphere every time. It coordinates with Altro Operetta and Altro Serenade for a complete look throughout. Combine with our extensive range of Altro walls: Altro Whiterock for areas requiring a hygienic surface and Altro Fortis wall protection for busy areas that need extra protection.
“The installation went really well, there was a noticeable difference to the floor area as the installation progressed. The waiting area now benefits from a more professional look with improved natural light using the two colours. Altro Orchestra is really easy to clean
and can be machine cleaned.”
Paul Gaunt, Building Maintenance Manager, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust
“We fitted out the Eye Surgery Waiting Room in two contrasting colours Altro Orchestra ‘Bassoon’ and Altro Orchestra ‘Soul’. This was the design between Altro and Torbay hospital. Aesthetically the design looks really good. The floor was easy to fit, which you would expect from Altro. We get a lot of work that already has a specification. I would have no problem with using Altro Orchestra again.”
