Plastic cladding can be used to cover inside and outside walls.
Plastic cladding can lead to the improvement of the general appearance of a building, covering other materials and changing its feel and overall aesthetic.
Cladding can be a substitute for tiles on the walls of bathrooms. It is easy to install and maintain and requires no grouting. Plastic can be a good choice because of its waterproof quality. There is a wide range of bathroom wall panels and plastic cladding to choose from.
Interior plastic wall cladding sheets are particularly suitable for hygienic wall cladding, lining, sterile preparation and storage rooms, including chillers. Hygienic cladding is also used in showering areas, equestrian centres, hospitals and laboratories, providing non-slip surfaces as well as easy-cleanable hygienic surfaces.
Polypropylene wall cladding sheets can be used in a variety of applications where safety and hygiene performance is important. Particularly useful in food preparation areas where no contamination is essential.
Plastic cladding has a number of additional benefits including the following:
- Good availability of materials.
- Low maintenance requirements and durability.
- Easy to install.
- Available in a range of colours and does not need to be painted.
It can be less expensive to purchase plastic cladding direct rather than have a contractor purchase it. However, it is important to use a reputable supplier, and to agree any delivery fees in advance.
