Multi-purpose Altro Whiterock™ installed in hospital shower area
Lemuel Shattuck Hospital in Jamaica Plain, MA provides acute, subacute and ambulatory care to patients from all over Massachusetts. With 255 inpatient beds, shower and bathroom areas take constant abuse and Shattuck was looking for a product that could stand up to the harsh conditions.
Shattuck Hospital teamed up with Capital Carpet and Flooring Specialists of Woburn, MA for the floor and wall installation. Altro Whiterock allows for very intricate installations in areas with lots of bends and corners that the panels can be formed around. The Capital Carpet team, graduates of the Altro Training Clinic, was able to use the techniques learned from the training clinic to complete the installation in a few days.
At Shattuck, the installers used the wall panels to cover the entire shower area. When Capital Carpet came upon the benches in the shower they wanted to try something new. The installation team used Whiterock to go over the existing benches and give the area a fresh look. The wall panels were heated and formed around the existing benches to allow for an encapsulated floor and wall system. With Whiterock’s durability, the maintenance team will not have to worry about needing to repair the bench over time.
Whiterock was paired with Marine 20 and installed using the overlap method, Marine 20 being flash coved up the wall and Whiterock installed over the Marine 20. Shattuck Hospital was very pleased with the installation and confident that Altro products are ideal for these busy environments.
