PVC Wall Cladding for Local Abattoir

Wall Cladding Polypropylene Partwell

Abattoir Hygienically Unsafe

Partwell Group supplied a Lancashire based building and joinery client a large volume of hygienic plastic PVC wallcladding for a large local abattoir and slaughter house.

The client was approached by the abattoir as their current environment had been highlighted by the local environment authority as being unfit for purpose.

A representative from Partwell’s industrial plastics division visited the abattoir with the building contractor to establish the most appropriate plastic material grade for this application.  PVC wall cladding was the material of choice as it is fully FDA approved and very easy to clean and low maintenance. This product is available in a range of colours, the client opted for bright white as it offered the best visible indicators of cleanliness. The fire rating of PVC is excellent (class 1).

PVC plastic wall cladding was very easy to install, with no need for painting or tiling. The building company used PVC wall cladding fitting profiles and angles, hygienic adhesive and sealants, all of which were supplied by the Partwell Group.

Alternative Material Choice

Wall cladding plastic sheet can also be supplied in Polypropylene material, when compared to PVC, polypropylene (PP) offers greater strength and resilience on impact, but has a lower fire rating and can only be fitted using mechanical rivets or screws as opposed to adhesive. PP is also fully FDA approved.
