Union Jack Club salutes success of Altro flooring


The recently completed kitchen installation at the Union Jack Club in London was built on Altro resin flooring and wall cladding, the company has confirmed.

The kitchen was installed by Inox Equip using predominately rational equipment.

The Union Jack Club is a charitable private members club for serving and ex-serving military personnel.

The club’s kitchens have recently undergone a refurbishment to combine two working areas spread over two floors into one more practical working kitchen, to improve efficiency, productivity and the quality of the service.

John McCarthy, of Genie Interiors Limited, which installed the Altro products, said: “The kitchen was too small and out of date, having been installed in 1975, and there were two working areas, which wasn’t very efficient, so we expanded the kitchen and merged everything on to one floor.

“We laid down 100m2 of Altro SoloSafe resin flooring with decorative quartz in the colour Clyde, an attractive blue. We ground the floor to establish a good key, uplifted the existing slab and laid the floor in just one week.

“Altro SoloSafe is the best product of its kind on the market in my view. It’s a great hygienic solution, quick drying, very hardwearing and it looks good, too. We also received very good technical support and back-up from Altro during this project. Their resin department came out to view the site and advise us on how to deliver the best result. We have a very good working relationship with them.”

Genie Interiors Limited also installed 200m2 of Altro WhiterockTM hygienic wall cladding in the kitchen.

Head Chef Martin Koch and his brigade of 12 chefs are now happily installed in their new kitchen. Martin said: “The new floor looks great and it’s so easy to clean; we brush it and wash it with soapy water twice a day. It also gives superb grip underfoot, even when the floor is wet. We have used Altro Whiterock wall cladding here in the past and it is a very reliable product; smart to look at and easy to keep clean,” he said.
