Want a durable, hygienic alternative to tiles – that gives a modern, elegant finish?
Tiles used to be the go to choice to protect your walls in a commercial or residential bathroom and kitchen type area. They do, however, require time, patience and some skill to install. Once installed they are prone to damage, staining and the grout area is a breeding ground for dirt and mould, despite the best attempts at cleaning.
Take a look at the stunning Altro Whiterock Splashback™ range. This grout free, non-shedding, easy to clean product is the ultimate interior wall panel for use in bathrooms, kitchens, serveries, or spas. Scratch, steam, water and impact resistant, hygienic, low-maintenance, convenient and easy to install…no wonder Altro Whiterock Splashbacks are such a popular alternative to tiles.
Altro Whiterock Splashbacks come in an amazing stylish, modern range of colours, finishes and sizes, complemented by colour-matched sealants giving you the flexibility to coordinate or contrast.
No specialist skills are required to install your Splashback panels (although there is an installation guide available if you need a little extra help). Simple to cut, (including making cut outs for switches and electric sockets) they can be butt joined and even installed over existing tiles, which certainly makes it less time consuming.
Welcome to our page of Altro Whiterock Splashback frequently asked questions. We have tried to address many of your queries, but please contact us if your specific question is not answered here.
What is Altro Whiterock Splashback?
It’s a seriously tough 2.5mm thick, semi rigid extruded sheet as an alternative to traditional tiled walls. If offers a resilient, hygienic wall protection solution that gives a modern finish to any interior space.
How is Altro Whiterock Splashback attached to the wall?
We recommend that the Altro Whiterock Splashback sheet is fully bonded to the substrate or existing tiles, using the same adhesives that are used for the Altro Whiterock range. The fully bonded application ensures that the sheet is securely mounted to the wall and helps to increase the level of impact resistance.
How good does the substrate need to be?
To gain a good bond, the wall or tiles will need to be sound, dry, grease and dust-free. As a guide, the same substrate quality and cleanliness as the Altro Whiterock installation process, and the same good working practices should be followed. Full fitting instructions are available from Altro.
