Rising awareness and concern about hygiene and infections is affecting UK companies on many levels. Some are even thinking about changing the materials used to construct their workplaces.
In the UK, people are becoming increasingly concerned about the risks arising from poor hygiene practices in hospitals and clinics. They have read reports of people suffering from serious infections like MRSA that they have picked up whilst in hospitals and clinics. In addition, UK consumers are worried about hygiene standards in cafes, restaurants and fast food outlets. They have read stories about dozens of people suffering from food poisoning picked up from these places. These stories and reports have lead many companies to review their hygiene standards, with more looking at installing specialist items such as hygienic wall cladding from Be-plas.
They are anxious to improve their hygiene standards to avoid harming their clients. However, high hygiene standards are difficult to maintain. It takes time and money to do so and requires a high level of attention. Most companies welcome anything that helps to make the process of keeping their premises hygienic. They know the consequences of not doing so are very serious.
Replacing existing walls with specialist cladding is one way to help make the cleaning process easier and more effective. The surface of hygienic wall cladding includes a finish that is designed to be especially easy to keep clean. Usually, a PVC finish is added to insulated panels. The joints of ordinary cladding are, unfortunately, ideal homes for bacteria. Hygienic cladding has joints that are designed not to be homes for bacteria and to be easier to keep clean. They are 100% watertight, which means they are not homes for moulds and other bacterium.
