Altro have designed and developed the Altro XpressLay, an adhesive-free safety floor that’s designed to be installed and removed quickly and reused and recycled when necessary.
The Looselay technology is a system with a studded emboss on the underside of the flooring, which aims to allow any subfloor moisture to escape. It’s been designed to lie flat, which means there’s no need for adhesive – making it possible to get same-day welding results that can be walked on straight away. Because the XpressLay is a safety floor, Altro have recognised the need to ensure that their product meets a range of safety needs and requirements, whilst also being designed to save customers time and money.
Designed to be slip resistant, easy to install and sustainable, the XpressLay was developed to provide a safety-floor solution in temporary buildings or accommodations. Because the product has been designed to be reusable and doesn’t require adhesive, it can be relatively easy to utilise in situations where permanent safety flooring isn’t appropriate. Additionally, the XpressLay is made up of recycled materials and is itself recyclable, which was a focus for Alto from the design stage.
The design and development of the XpressLay has earned Altro a Product Innovation Award in the Australian Business Awards 2016.
