A determination to use only the highest quality products whilst refurbishing and upgrading the kitchen facilities at Elm Church in Bath was paramount to the new kitchen in the basement of the church building. Simon Emery of local builders Emery’s of Bath was tasked with project managing the creation of the kitchen and this included sourcing the very best materials for the professional kitchen.
“We wanted to source the very best brands for the church and this meant that Altro was the number one choice for floors and walls,” explained Simon. “I have used their products before in kitchens and they are superb quality, they look great and are built to last. In my experience, no other product can compete with Altro.
For the church’s professional kitchen, Simon specifically asked for Altro Walkway 20 safety flooring and Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding. “I have used both these products before in professional kitchens and they are undoubtedly the best; easy to clean, practical, safe and they look the business,” said John.
Altro Walkway 20 is frequently specified for commercial kitchens because it’s designed for use in kitchens where grease, oils or fats may be present.
The product has one of Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance. It also offers long-term durability and ease of cleaning and its 2mm thickness provides added noise reduction, comfort and strength underfoot.
Altro Whiterock is a cost-effective sheet extruded from a high quality, food safe PVCu polymer for operating temperatures up to 60°C. It is easy to clean, impact resistant and grout-free.
The installation of the Altro floors and walls was carried out by Rudge Brothers and James. Jim Heal, Director of RBJ said “ These products are very straightforward to install and as an Altro Premier Installer we have a great deal of experience in working with their floors and walls. Altro is a great company to work with; very supportive, with superb back-up, which makes even challenging projects so much easier.”
Simon Emery was delighted with the new kitchen – and the floors and walls meet his exacting standards. “The team from RBJ were amazing; very professional, helpful and they completed the work very quickly to meet our deadlines. They did a fantastic job. “With the Altro floors and walls we have achieved exactly the look and feel we wanted, without sacrificing on practicality and safety. The floors are laid with coving that goes 100mm up the walls, which makes them so easy to clean. I am confident that we have sourced the best possible quality floors and walls for our school and the results are superb.”
