Hospital floors can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Developing a floor care program that inhibits bacteria growth on floors and combats all forms of wear and tear can help keep hospitals cleaner and looking their best. Altra’s Hard Floor Care Program includes floor finishes infused with antimicrobial product protection and alcohol-resistance to meet the highest standards of cleanliness in any healthcare facility.

In a survey of 5 hospitals, a study in the American Journal of Infection Control found that floors in patient rooms were frequently contaminated with pathogens and high-touch objects such as blood pressure cuffs and call buttons were often in contact with the floor. Contact with objects on floors frequently resulted in transfer of pathogens to hands.*

Unlike other companies, we do not private label floor finishes manufactured by someone else. The polymers that form the core of our floor finishes are engineered by us.
Renaissance gives us the ability to innovate. By sourcing the raw materials and controlling the characteristics our finishes have, we can provide unique value and cost savings to our customers.
With the technology of Renaissance Performance Polymers, our floor care program provides proprietary durability and unmatched clarity that reduces your labor and product costs.
Powdering is excessive breakup of a non-durable floor finish under floor traffic or burnishing that produces dust, requiring additional cleanup of the removed finish.
Altra Floor Finishes will help extend strip cycles.
Yellowing is darkening of floor finish over time caused by generic inferior polymers and additives that make floors look dirty and dated.
Altra Floor Finishes dry clear and stay clear to help promote a “true” top scrub and recoat program.
Microban Technology in Altra: Antimicrobial Protection from the Inside Out
Altra floor finishes with Microban technology proactively and continuously fight microbes on your floor 24/7. Microban protection is built-in to Altra during the manufacturing process. When microbes come in contact with the product surface, Microban protection penetrates the cell wall of the microorganism and disrupts the cell, making the microorganism unable to grow and reproduce.
*Microban technology does not protect users against disease-causing microorganisms. Microban Products Company makes neither direct nor implied public health claims. Normal cleaning practices should be maintained.
Hand sanitizer availability is essential in healthcare facilities, but if that hand sanitizer drips onto floors, it can corrode floor finish over time. Prevent damage from dripping hand sanitizer with alcohol-resistant floor finish.
Time is precious in healthcare facilities. Formulated with patented, water-based technology, Altra floor strippers remove floor finish in one application.
Available in quarts and 2 gallon Mini Pacs.
Maintaining your floors is effective and efficient with our versatile hospital floor cleaner that doesn’t attack floor finish. Altra Multi-Purpose HP Cleaner is safe for use on all flooring types, finished floors and luxury vinyl flooring.
The Altra Lite Applicator and Backpack apply floor finish accurately and efficiently. The ergonomic design of the Altra Lite Applicator reduces strain on wrists, knees, and back.
