Hygiene Coatings for Walls and Ceilings

In environments where hygiene is an important factor such as kitchens, hospitals or changing areas the superior choice of protection is anti-microbial paint systems.

These coatings contain additives that work to prevent a bacterial growth as soon as a micro-organism lands on the surface. Research shows the coatings are effective against a range of micro-organisms including MRSA, E.coli, Clostridium Difficile and Salmonella.

Prevents bacterial growth

Two forms of additive are available: the recently developed and naturally occurring 'silver ion technology', and synthetic additives which have a 40-year track record. Both work in the same way by disrupting the micro-organisms respiration, breaking down the cell wall, and by altering the DNA of the microbe to prevent cell replication. Both are also guaranteed to prevent bacterial growth for at least 10 years.

Eliminates hygiene issues

Smooth walls (standard plaster finish is acceptable), are treated with an application of the paint system producing a sealed finish. In high-wear areas where accidental damage may occur a reinforced fibreglass matting is recommended which provides an extremely hardwearing surface. This system also eliminates the problems associated with traditional jointed panels or tiles which trap dirt, and are prone to cracking giving rise to potential hygiene issues. Our coatings remove all these issues in one seamless, durable system.

The anti-microbial additives are important properties but the paint systems we use offer many advantages. They can:

  1. be repeatedly washed and cleaned with detergents;
  2. withstand high levels of humidity (normal paints blister/flake);
  3. be applied over tiles;
  4. offer unparalleled durability (particularly if reinforced with fibreglass matting).
