BioClad walls kill microbes on contact

Claimed to be the world’s first PVC wall cladding system containing BioCote silver ion antimicrobial technology is now available for specification when designing food preparation and processing areas.

BioClad has been developed by Advanced Hygienic Contracting in partnership with BioCote, the market leader in providing built-in antimicrobial surface protection.
BioClad cladding incorporates silver ions, impregnated into the panels during manufacture, forming a permanently active surface which inhibits the growth of a wide range of bacteria and moulds including Listeria, Campylobacter, E.coli and Salmonella by up to 99.99%.

BioCote protection is a safe, natural antimicrobial technology that controls bacteria 24/7 for the expected lifetime of the cladding [1] and eliminates the need for aggressive cleaning fluids. BioClad brings important added value to any food manufacturing project where hygiene is imperative and provides a unique selling point, yet costs no more than standard PVC cladding systems.

And with all BioCote antimicrobial protection claims being independently tested, there is now a powerful argument to specify BioClad for any kitchen new build or refurbishment project where hygiene is important. In addition, Advanced Hygienic Contracting provides a 20 year warranty for both its products and fitting, backed by the ISO 9001 quality standard.

[1] Accelerated lifecycle tests by an independent laboratory have proved that BioCote antimicrobial efficacy or effectiveness remains high for the lifetime of the product.
