Some areas within hygienic wall cladding environments are going to need more protection from certain elements than can be provided by even the best of today’s high performance uPVC products.
Stainless Steel Hygienic Wall Cladding is the perfect answer for those areas of wall that will be exposed to; high temperatures (anything above 40 degrees celcius) such as the hot area within a commercial kitchen; areas that need a higher level of impact protection such as high traffic routes; areas that need a more specific anti-bacterial surface, for instance in a pharmaceutical preparatory laboratory.
Our recommended Stainless Steel hygienic wall cladding product for these purposes is a 0.9mm thick sheet with a dull polish finish, and we have readily available joining trims, end caps and hand-safe corner angles manufactured from the same material for the perfect finish. These sheets are also regularly folded, cut and welded to form bespoke fittings, from a simple c-channel capping piece to a fully bespoke commercial cooker hood.

Stainless Steel Wall Cladding Restrictions
