As well as being specialist resin flooring installers, BIF started installing hygienic wall cladding nearly 20 years ago and became approved installers by a major supplier. We achieved this recognition because of our attention to detail and the quality of our service.
What you should look out for;
Before choosing a contractor to install hygienic wall cladding;
Make sure its a recognised brand!
There are imitations out there and there are also contractors installing cheap, imported alternative products. You should be looking for a 2.5mm thick UPVC sheet, fully bonded with adhesive.
Make sure trims are from the same supplier
There are cheap trims on the market which can discolour over time.
Watch out for extras creeping in
Pricing may appear to be attractive, but watch for extras such as additional charges to fit around switches, plumbing or to thermoform corners or seal perimeter edges
This same attention to detail and service quality remains with us today, but in a very competitive market it can be easy to overlook the benefits of hiring an experienced, reputable contractor.
How does the subcontractor plan to install it?
A 2500x1220mm sheet is fully bonded with adhesive at a rate of 6.kg/sheet, (increasing to 8 kg/3000x1220mmm sheet). Some contractors may choose to substitute adhesive for silicon or Grip Fill which although looks fine at Handover, will cause the sheet to distort over time, leaving you with an unattractive mess.
What happens if you get an issue later on?
We will always return to rectify an installation which is causing issues. We provide a 6 Year Installation Warranty on all hygienic wall cladding installations and you'll also receive a 20 Year Product Warranty from our suppliers.
