harder to make this much more fun and
exciting.
“We have brought more colour and
light into the hydrotherapy by installing
Altro Whiterock White hygienic wall
sheet throughout the interior, and using
it as a movie screen. It has a smooth,
white surface which is perfect for displaying and reflecting colours, images
and shapes to accompany music during therapy — a thrilling experience for
pupils as the light and sound bounces
off the walls and water.
“This product ticked a lot of boxes on
so many levels. It would not only boost
the sensory and visual experience for
pupils, but also prove a hygienic, practical choice. I have specified Altro
Whiterock many times in the past very
successfully, as an ideal alternative to
tiles for environments where both hygiene and aesthetics are paramount.”
Altro Whiterock White is impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean. Its
smooth white surface and classical purity make it a timeless choice for any
interior. Made from a high-quality,
PVCu polymer that can handle temperatures up to 60°C, Altro Whiterock
White meets all current European Union
(EU) Directives on health and hygiene.
Carole says: “The project was a great
success, but of course the real measure
is how the children feel about their new
hydrotherapy pool. The open day when
the new pool was unveiled was a very
special and emotional occasion. The
pupils were so excited and delighted
and it made us all realise how much of
a positive difference the new facility will
make to their lives.
“I was very impressed with the professional attitude of everyone involved in
this project. Altro responded to our
needs immediately, got involved and
were as passionate as we were about
creating the best possible result and the
right solution for the wonderful children
at Vranch House. The installers and
contractors were also very professional.”
Tom Warren, Project Manager at
Vranch House, says: “The new hydrotherapy pool has brought another di-
mension to life for pupils at Vranch
House - everyone who uses it, both
students and staff, are thrilled.
“It has gone from being a pool that was
vulnerable to the elements and difficult
to maintain, to a fantastic place that
pupils get very excited about. It’s a
focal point of the school now and often
central to therapy activities. It’s constantly in demand, and can have a very
powerful influence; children we might
rarely get a response from open up like
never before when they are in the pool.
It’s quite magical.
“The wall sheet is the perfect screen
for projecting all manner of shapes and
light, and we can display rotating pictures and shapes, or continuously
change the wall colours to bold or subtle shades, depending on the pupil’s
needs.
“Cleaning has been very easy. The
Altro Whiterock looks as good as the
day it was installed.”
