THE ALTUS CODE

We love nature. That’s why we manufacture our products with the utmost respect for the environment and seek the highest quality in the manufacturing processes and technical nature of each fabric or material. This section includes a list of all our nomenclature for an understanding of each icon on this website.

PRESTACIONES

Antibacterial

Antibacterial

It effectively prevents the development of bacteria, leading to comfort and well being throughout the entire day. Its antimicrobial effect remains in place throughout the useful life of the clothing. It avoids mould stains and is suitable for all skin types.

Extreme cold

Extreme cold

Compatible with mountain activities in extremely cold weather conditions (down to -57 ºC), it withstands these temperatures for different periods depending on the activity in question. See the “activities” section in each product data sheet for the recommended outdoor sports to offer optimum use for each item of clothing.

Waterproof

Waterproof

Waterproof clothing for mountain activities has been the best breakthrough in mountain clothing of the last century. Its main component is the internal membrane, which is responsible for its characteristics. Waterproof clothing retains heat better and, therefore, protects perfectly from UV rays, as heat is unable to pass through the fabric.

Light

Light

Light clothing offers comfort of movement, is easily compressible and flexible and, therefore, is ideal for not adding unnecessary excess weight on long trips.

Water resistant

Water resistant

Chemical coating applied to the outer fabric of clothing so that the water “slides off” this surface in droplet form instead of being absorbed. These films, combined with waterproof fabric, are the perfect method for total waterproofing because they prevent water saturation on the surface of the clothing.

Windproof

Windproof

Breathable fabric is more wind-resistant than waterproof fabric. The combination of protection and breathability minimises the cooling effect of the wind and reduces the risk of the body overheating. The long-lasting treatment of the outer fabric increases the water resistance of the clothing.

Breathable

Breathable

Breathable clothing is extremely resistant to gusts of wind (it passes through), allowing the warm air to be naturally released through the outer layer. It is also longer-lasting and more resistant to stretching than waterproof-only clothing.

UPF sun protection

UPF sun protection

Polarized light is specially annoying even with color filters. It is easily eliminated if the crystal is polarized and it is specially recommendable for driving, skiing, water sports, etc. Polarized lens absorb 99,9% of reflected glare from flat, smooth and shiny surfaces in front of you.
