Why use Altro Whiterock hygienic walling systems in the healthcare sector?

Altro Whiterock wall cladding provides a watertight, seamless surface that is impervious and can be hygienically finished around fixtures and fittings, pipes and other extrusions for a single continuous surface. The fully bonded system includes thermoformed pencil rounded corners giving bacteria nowhere to hide and making it easy for you to clean and disinfect. Its unique installation method prevents water penetration behind walls, even in shower areas. Consistent thickness on corner bends provides high impact resistance and can eliminate the need for corner guards. Its high durability and low maintenance cost make it an excellent long-term investment.

A durable hygienic alternative to paint or wall tiles, Altro Whiterock PVCu walling systems are a decorative, hygienic solution. Altro Whiterock wall cladding meets all current EU Directives on health and hygiene.
