Wall Cladding

Today’s hygiene regulations demand that surfaces must be smooth and easy to clean, and

that walls are durable, impervious and impact resistant.The traditional approach has been to work with ceramic tiles. Unfortunately, this can be problematic in addressing modern hygiene and durability issues.

The solution is sheet wall cladding which is a 100% watertight unlike tile surfaces. The product can be used practically anywhere – showers and kitchens in particular which benefit from the watertight, seamless, wipe clean surface that the system provides. There is no grout involved, so dirt and bacteria have nowhere to hide. Also, water can’t seep through to the substrate behind – a problem that can cause major structural damage to any building.

Hygiene Protection

The Altro Whiterock PVCu walling systems provide a decorative, practical and hygienic alternative to paint or tiles. Benefiting from a watertight, seamless surface, Altro Whiterock is impervious, preventing water ingress into the substrate, thereby avoiding structural damage. It can be hygienically finished around fixtures and fittings; unlike a tiled surface, Altro Whiterock does not require grout so the risk of contamination is dramatically reduced. The fully bonded system includes thermoformed pencil rounded corners giving bacteria nowhere to hide and making it easy to clean and disinfect. Its high durability and low maintenance costs make it an excellent long-term investment.

Factors Affecting the Performance of Hygienic Wall Cladding 

White Paper


The performance of wall cladding is not decided by a single product feature alone. It is the combination of a range of important factors encompassing product design, manufacture, installation and life-cycle.

Inspired by research carried out for Altro by renowned microbiologist, Peter Askew, this new white paper interprets the results of wall cladding product testing and research and development.

It outlines the key factors determining levels of performance, with particular reference to hygiene. Important commercial considerations during the specification and purchasing of wall cladding products are also reviewed in the light of imperatives such as sustainability.

The white paper focuses on the following for consideration when specifying or purchasing:

Performance Factors

  • Integrity of cladding material
  • Bacteria protection
  • Adhesion integrity
  • Integrity of the product at potential points of stress / weakness
  • Quality of installation
  • Maintenance / cleaning regimes
  • Fire protection

Additional Commercial Considerations
