BioClad antimicrobial wall cladding versus standard PVC sheets

Thanks to BioClad antimicrobial hygienic wall cladding you can now walk into over 50 NHS trusts nationwide safe in the knowledge you’re in a superior hygienic space. In addition to the NHS, BioClad’s antimicrobial product range has been trusted by brands such as McDonald’s, KFC, Five Guys, amongst many others.

Ever wondered why our clients champion antimicrobial wall cladding? Well, there’s plenty of reasons to use BioClad’s antimicrobial wall cladding. Here we give you some of our top tips;

1. Reduces bacteria

Unlike standard PVC sheets, BioClad boasts superior hygiene thanks to innovative antimicrobial technology which is proven to protect surfaces against bacteria. Our antimicrobial wall cladding works 24/7 and reduces microbes by up to 99.9%. This scientific advancement in PVC cladding is thanks to silver-ion BioCote technology.

2. Lifetime guarantee

Our BioClad wall cladding has a lifetime guarantee on the antimicrobial protection. We’ve even created a unique BioPen test to prove when antimicrobial protection is present. Shine our BioPen on your wall cladding at any time during the lifespan of the product and BioClad will show a green light, proving antimicrobial protection is present.

3. Mould-proof

While standard PVC sheets are prone to mould growth, the presence of our antimicrobial additive in our wall cladding stops the development of mould. The silver ion creates a surface upon which unsightly and unpleasant mould such as Aspergillus niger cannot survive.

4. Stops cross-contamination

Our antimicrobial wall cladding doesn’t just protect the surface of the cladding. It protects anything that comes into contact with the walls; for example, a sick hospital patient steadying themselves against a wall, a dirty chef leaning against a kitchen surface, a caretaker propping a mop against a door. Unlike standard PVC sheets, antimicrobial cladding means less microbes to transfer between surfaces, ultimately reducing the potential for cross contamination.

5. Newer for longer

Standard PVC sheets are prone to staining, discolouration and can even give off an unpleasant odour over time. Thanks to the protection against microbes our antimicrobial wall cladding stays fresh looking and has an increased functional life cycle.

6. Protects against disease

One of BioClad’s core sectors is hospitals and healthcare centres due to this industry’s need for superior hygiene. In fact, BioClad has an NHS Award for Innovation. We attribute this to our proven effectiveness to protect against Influenza, MRSA and E.Coli.
