What is hygienic wall cladding and how can it benefit businesses?

In previous blogs, we have discussed how hygienic wall cladding can benefit businesses in several professional industries, including healthcare, pharmaceuticals and hospitality. We have also released a guide on how to fit hygienic wall cladding, as demonstrated by our Elite Installers.

While this information provides business leaders with assurances on how to maintain their professional space, it still begs the question; what is hygienic wall cladding?

Before opting to invest in PVC cladding, it is beneficial to understand exactly what it is, as well as how it can benefit a working area.

Hygienic Wall Cladding in Kitchen

What is hygienic wall cladding?

Hygienic wall cladding, put simply, is a cladding solution with enhanced hygienic properties. Compared to typical walling solutions such as tiling, it serves to provide stronger protection for specific environments.

Particularly in professional working areas, wall cladding can prove to be the best one-stop solution to providing a safe working space for staff and customers alike.

Why should businesses choose hygienic wall cladding?

For businesses looking to create and maintain a clean environment, investing in a hygienic wall cladding solution can help to achieve their objective. Compared to traditional tiling, PVC cladding is specifically designed with hygiene in mind. Here are just some of the benefits of advanced PVC:

Hygienic properties

PVC hygienic wall cladding does not harbour bacteria like tiles typically do. Particularly for businesses in hospitality, where maintaining clean kitchen walls is essential, cladding is a more suitable option.

Moreover, hygienic wall cladding can be cleaned regularly with hot soapy water to maintain its protection, as opposed to tiles which build up grout and mould, which can become difficult to clean.


Particularly beneficial for businesses that are looking to cover a large area such as hospitals or sporting facilities, the easy installation of hygienic wall cladding means that it can be fitted quickly and efficiently, thus proving to be more cost-effective than tiles.


Hygienic wall cladding does not flake or corrode like paint or steel eventually will. When regularly maintained and cleaned, advanced PVC can secure protection for the entire lifetime of the product.
