What is Hygienic Cladding?

Hygienic wall cladding consists of PVC sheets that are attached to your walls using adhesives and solid trims. This can give a consistent look throughout a room or building, available in a range of colours. It is quick to install and can be simply wiped down for cleaning. It is resistant to mould growth and also boasts chemical resistance and waterproofing. Hygienic cladding is also relatively cheap compared to other wall solutions, and can last for many years with regular cleaning and maintenance.

Who Could Benefit From Hygienic Cladding?

Hygienic Cladding offers many benefits to a range of businesses. It is easy to install over a large area, offering a wipe-clean anti-bacterial surface. Compared to tiles, which can grow mould within the grouting, plastic cladding is mould resistant and offers strong flat surfaces. When properly maintained it can last for many years compared to traditional wall coverings. The bold, consistent colours offered by advanced hygienic cladding can also bring a clear and attractive look to a building.

Hygienic cladding is mainly used within hospitality or health industries, due to its anti-bacterial properties and easy maintenance. In health environments, hygienic PVC cladding is ideal for infection control, and its chemical resistance also offers bonuses. Plastic wall cladding allows hospitals to adhere to the strictest hygiene protocols, ensuring that these vital environments remain as clean as possible.

The benefits of hygienic cladding in hospitality are also great, particularly when installed within kitchens. This can help to limit the risks of bacteria spreading and cross-contamination in food preparation areas. Making sure that your kitchen environment is a hygienic space is vital not just for the health of staff and customers, but to ensure your business receives a high food hygiene rating. 

Other businesses that could benefit from hygienic cladding sheets include supermarkets, factories, and sports facilities. For any location looking for hygienic, easy to install wall solutions, PVC cladding is an excellent choice.
