Altro Whiterock is a hygienic wall cladding product that serves as a more efficient alternative to ceramic wall tiles. This is due to the fact that Altro Whiterock is constructed from a PVCu polymer material that is Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) approved, can withstand temperatures up to 60°C and meets all of the European Union’s (EU) health and hygiene directives. Combined these benefits with the fact that Altro Whiterock cladding is impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean, and you are equipped with an anti-bacterial wall cladding product that will facilitate a clean and sterile environment within commercial kitchens, healthcare organisations and all manner of hospitality facilities where hygiene is paramount.

After all, if you operate within the healthcare, food preparation or hospitality industries then you will be well aware of the importance of creating and maintaining this type of hygienic environment. In fact, recent studies have revealed that the installation of PVC wall cladding products, such as Altro Whiterock, can actually inhibit the growth of potentially lethal microbes such as MRSA, E.coli, Salmonella and mould, by up to 99.9%. According to a recent study by EOS Surfaces, flat surfaces such as walls “tend to be the surfaces in a hospital room that are most contaminated with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)”.

Consequently, by refurbishing these flat surfaces such as walls and floors and replacing them with PVC hygienic wall cladding products, you can prevent the accumulation of dirt, bacteria and other harmful contaminants across your establishments. So if you are considering refurbishing your company’s healthcare, food preparation or hospitality facilities, why not peruse our range of Altro Whiterock wall cladding products today to find an efficient and cost-effective solution for your organisation?
