The Altro Advantage in Wall Cladding Solutions
DCO is one of the only approved installation partners for ALTRO. We are familiar with their standard
Whiterock and Puraguard options, but did you know they have greatly expanded their wall cladding offering? When it comes to the Altro Wall Cladding Solutions, DCO Commercial Floors has the advantage.
Many years ago, DCO was approached by one of our flooring manufacturers to install hygienic wall panels that worked in conjunction with their sheet vinyl. The combination would create a space that could be easily hosed down and cleaned. The general contractor could not find anyone qualified to take on the wall panel scope. So in DCO’s “making it easy” fashion, we helped the general contractor fill his scope gap. In this case, it made perfect sense for us to handle it. We worked with a certified installer to complete the project and would go on to get several of our installers certified to work with this product. Today, we are one of a few trade contractors in our region certified to install Altro hygienic wall panels, which gives us an extraordinary competitive advantage. In the beginning, it was basic Altro Whiterock. Later they added a less expensive version called Puraguard. More recently, they have gotten extremely creative with many different colors and visuals. They can also incorporate custom graphics and artwork. The possibilities for designers abound with this wall cladding product.
The Altro walls system was introduced over 35 years ago and has been a market leader ever since. Providing creative freedom to designers, our effective walls systems deliver a safe, and hygenic walls solution. Their walls system consists of a range of design-oriented options and textures that provide flexibility with colors and shades to meet aesthetic and performance requirements for endless possibilities.
