Interior wall cladding inhibits SARS-COV-2 virus

BePlas, one of the UK's leading suppliers of interior wall and ceiling solutions for hygienic environments, has successfully tested Elite Sterling Rigid PVC Wall Cladding against SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19.

When tested to ISO 21702:2019, Elite Sterling wall lining with Biomaster antimicrobial technology has seen a reduction of the virus of more than 96% after 6 hours when compared to a control and more than 98.5% after 24 hours.

Elite Sterling utilises rigid, solid, Extruded uPVC and a range of antimicrobial ancillaries and adhesives to meet all UK, EU and global hygiene, fire and building regulations.

The system offers a cost effective, versatile hygienic wall covering for a wide variety of environments, especially hospitals, food catering and manufacturing facilities to provide effective and durable antimicrobial surface protection.

Biomaster protection inhibits the growth of microbes so that when they come into contact with a surface protected by the technology, they are deactivated. Microbes can’t grow, produce energy or replicate. The technology is effective against a wide range of harmful bacteria, works 24/7 and lasts for the lifetime of the product.

Managing Director Jay Moorhouse says: “We are incredibly proud to be playing our part in supporting hygiene. The latest news from Addmaster is fantastic and is now proof that it is an effective product used in many applications, including our own products.

“On a personal level, helping create hygienic environments in this difficult time has been one of the most important things I have done in my life”.

Addmaster Marketing Manager Karl Shaw adds, “Biomaster antimicrobial product protection doesn’t wear off or affect the basic colour or surface finish of any item to which it is added. In addition to regular cleaning protocols, Elite Sterling wall cladding with Biomaster can offer an important second line of protection in hygiene-critical environments.”

BePlas products are available on a supply-only basis or fully installed by a network of approved installers all over the UK and around the world.
