Plastic Wall Cladding

Sandhursts Flooring (UK) Ltd supplies and fits decorative, hygienic plastic wall cladding and decorative wall panels. Plastic wall cladding is a hard wearing, impact resistant hygienic covering for walls. It can be used in hospitals, laboratories and schools, providing none slip surfaces as well as easy cleanable hygienic surfaces. Plastic wall cladding gives a hygienic, watertight, wipe clean surface which is particularly desirable in kitchens and showering areas. It is also especially suited to areas, where no contamination with the produce is essential. Plastic wall cladding is the modern alternative to ceramic tiles.

There are two main types of plastic wall cladding sheets to choose from, each with specific characteristics to achieve the finish you require.

PVC is already widely utilized as a building material due to its ease of installation, cost benefits and durability. It is ideal for applications such as in commercial kitchens or clean rooms. If you need fire resistant wall cladding as well as fantastic hygiene performance then you cannot go wrong with PVC wall cladding. Not only is it a widely used material, but it is the one that is replacing other traditional materials such as wood, clay and concrete in many areas. PVC wall cladding is easy to install, as panels can easily be cut to size quickly. Due to the lightness and flexibility of the material, it can be manufactured in large panels. Installation of PVC wall cladding can easily be carried out giving you considerable savings whilst producing a professional finish every time. PVC wall cladding is also extremely strong and versatile and is available in a wide variety of colours.

Hygienic Polypropylene wall cladding sheets can be used in a variety of applications where safety and hygiene is paramount. Water resistance and mould resistance are two characteristics which add to the versatility of hygienic plastic cladding, and make it extremely popular for kitchen and bathroom settings. Hygienic wall cladding is also used in hospitals and laboratories, providing none slip surfaces as well as easy cleanable hygienic surfaces.

Once in situ, the lack of grouting and the reduction in corners and edges, means there is much less opportunity for mould or bacteria to take hold, when compared to tiled surfaces. Once the hygienic wall cladding is in place, there is no need for finishing, which adds to the ease of installation. When comparing pounds per square meters between plastic wall cladding and ceramic tiling, plastic is hard to beat.
