Impact-resistant and hygienic wall cladding product launched by Intastop
A new sheet has been launched by Intastop which will provide a hygienic and impact-resistant cladding for walls and doors.
I-Gienic sheet offers a smooth surface and is pivotal in a range of sectors where infection control and high standards of hygiene are required.
Designed to be quick and easy to install, I-Gienic sheet is simple to deep clean, or clinical clean, due to its smooth impervious and non-porous surface. There is also the option of a premium hygienic cladding, I-Gienic+, which is a white smooth sheet impregnated with antibacterial property, Hygienilac.
Introduced at the time of manufacture, it permeates each layer to ensure the product retains its antibacterial protection even if damage should occur. Both I-Gienic and I-Gienic+ are available in 2mm and 2.5mm thickness.
Phil Barsby, business development director at Intastop, said: “A range of applications can greatly benefit from I-Gienic sheet, from commercial kitchens and food processing areas to laboratories, operating theatres, and pharmaceutical areas. The options are endless.
“And our wide selection of colours enables organisations to co-ordinate and specify protection to suit interior schemes or brand guidelines while delivering unrivalled protection for walls.”
Designed predominantly to be used on walls, I-Gienic sheet is also suitable for doors and is easy to install.
As an alternative to tiles, no grouting is required and it can easily be jointed with welding rods, silicone or colour co-ordinated jointing trims for a seamless finish.
Barsby said: “The product is able to support the fundamental outline of building and user protection policies including fire safety, EC hygiene, and it can significantly reduce maintenance costs due to its durability.”
Intastop’s I-Gienic sheet is class ‘O’ Fire Rated; tested to BS476 Parts 6 & 7, and meets EC Hygiene requirements, food safety regulations, and supports guidelines in BS8300:2001. In addition, it is non-porous, chemical resistant, and easy to clean, which helps to maintain a safe and hygienic environment.
Barsby said: “Developed as a viable alternative to ongoing maintenance and decoration, wall protection is an ideal solution to maximise a building’s long-term efficiencies and aesthetical appeal to staff and visitors.
“I-Gienic provides facility managers, building owners, and building users with a clean and safe environment that does not impact on annual maintenance budgets and is visually appealing too.”
