At Altura, we are working hard to provide a website that is accessible to everyone, including those with visual, hearing, motor or cognitive impairments.

We are constantly checking and improving our website to ensure it meets the demands of the Disability Discrimination Act and the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, priorities 1 and 2.

This statement explains the accessibility features we have implemented to make our website easier to use and navigate.


We’ve tried to use clear, jargon free language that is easy to understand. We’ve also included a comprehensive Help section. This provides guidance on our ordering processes, delivery and returns and many other topics which could be useful to our customers.

Screen flicker and graphics

We have limited the use of Flash and other applications that are known to cause screen flicker.

We’ve also made it possible to use our site without viewing images or graphics by ensuring that all relevant non-text elements have explanatory text descriptions.

Style sheets

We use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout. This allows users to override our styles with their own preferred fonts and colours for increased readability.


We’ve distinguished links from our standard web text by displaying all links in a different, bolder colour, usually with arrows preceding the link. If you roll over a link with your mouse, an underline will appear.


We only use tables for tabular data and not for page layout.

The Altura website can be accessed from the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer (version 9 and above)
