Hygienic wall cladding – for enhanced safety and durability

Hygienic wall cladding – for enhanced safety and durability

Do you need to comply with strict food industry regulations? Is hygiene top of your list when it comes to project build? From hotels, restaurants and food processing units, to labs and hospitals, IFT has over 30 years experience and is an approved installer of the latest hygienic wall cladding systems from all the leading manufacturers.

We have recently installed Hygienic Wall Cladding, incorporating welded joints, to the new glass storage room at the Coca-Cola manufacturing site in East Kilbride, Glasgow, for Hughes Bros.

Modern hygienic wall cladding has been specifically developed to improve the safety and operational efficiency of food preparation areas, clean rooms, laboratories, clinics, laundries, bathrooms and changing areas. It is a simple, low maintenance, user-friendly system that can be applied to new or old surfaces to provide a sealed clean room environment.

Made from PVC and PVCu, hygienic wall cladding systems are completely watertight which makes them easy to clean and protects against the build up of bacteria, viruses, mould and fungi. Some systems also employ materials impregnated with anti-microbial compounds that will provide protection against bacteria throughout the long lifetime of the product – even where the surface has been scuffed or scraped.

Hygienic Wall Cladding comes in a range of thicknesses to suit different applications and a range of complementary colours for design, demarcation and branding purposes, for example:

  • Altro Whiterock Extruded PVCu Sheets – a glossy, vibrant wall cladding system available in a range of colours and shades from subtle pastels through to vivid whites
  • Altro Quick Clad – a quick to assemble, wipe-clean, seamless panelling system for partition walls ideal for use in restaurants or within listed buildings
  • BioClad PVC Wall Cladding – impregnated with silver ions to provide antimicrobial protection 24/7 throughout the lifetime of the product
  • BioClad PVC Wall Panels – a highly versatile product that can be applied directly to most flat surfaces, making it perfect for both new build and refurbishment projects

As an integrated provider, IFT can also supply and install all the associated products such as food grade and resin flooring, hygienic jointing, drop ceilings, doors, doorsets, corner protection and sills. Get in touch today to discuss your project and find the best solution.
