Hygienic Wall Cladding
Today’s hygiene regulations demand that surfaces must be smooth and easy to clean, and that walls are durable, impenetrable and impact resistant. The traditional approach has been to work with ceramic tiles. Unfortunately, this can be problematic in addressing modern hygiene and durability issues. Glazed ceramic tiles are vulnerable to damage, being easily scratched, chipped or cracked. This surface damage means that contaminated water can penetrate the tile leading to unsightly stains and bacterial growth.
Palopaque HYG technology sets a higher standard for hygienic cladding and facilitates high levels of sanitation. Breakthrough HYG products incorporate silver ions, a natural antimicrobial agent with proven biocidal behaviour that highly inhibits microbe reproduction. With silver ions, HYG products bring active microbe elimination to a whole range of applications, taking hygienic care one step
PALOPAQUE HYG have either killed or inhibited the growth of all the pathogens tested to date. This includes microorganisms that can affect the appearance of the panel. Since silver ions are uniformly distributed throughout the panel, a scratched or damaged surface will be equally effective.
We have a superb range of hygienic wall cladding for industrial and commercial applications. PVC wall panels have a class 1 fire rating (BS 279) with high impact strength and good scratch resistant properties. These solid UPVC panels have high resistance to chemical and corrosive environments and can be easily installed with adhesives. PVC cladding panels have a smooth surface and are available in a white satin finish and pastel colours in green, grey, cream and blue. uPVC wall panels are FDA approved for food contact with excellent hygiene properties.
Common Uses for Hygienic Wall Cladding
Hygienic wall cladding panels and sheets are simple to install and can be applied to any surface for a clean and attractive environment. These PVC sheets are used in kitchens, hospitals, commercial food preparation areas and showers.
