There would seem to be no competition when one compares the two finishes that are on offer, especially for areas where hygiene is a top priority.
Current regulations require surfaces to be easy to clean, durable and impact resistant.
Using ceramic tiles with grout does not achieve those requirements because when they are damaged their surface can allow water and other debris to ingress into cracks, which can lead to unsightly staining and growth of bacteria.
Ceramic tiles take considerably longer to install, especially when considering the time that grouting adds to the whole process - this increases cost.
UPVC wall cladding is impervious and can be used in most locations. Bathrooms, kitchens and Hospital Operating Theatres benefit from watertight and wipe clean surface that the cladding provides. It also prevents water ingress into the substrate.
It is a good investment to choose hygienic wall cladding, as it provides a long-term practical and hygienic solution, which can be finished around fixtures and fittings.
The fully bonded system includes thermoformed pencil rounded corners making it easy to clean and disinfect, with little opportunity for bacteria to get established.
Hygienic wall cladding is a product that is speedy to install, allowing your project to be completed faster than if ceramic tiles were the choice of wall covering.
