Cleaning processes are generally effective at reducing bacteria on wall tiles, but as soon as cleaning stops, bacteria begins to grow and with it the risk of cross-contamination.
NoTile™ hygienic fibreglass wall paneling, manufactured by Darlington company Composite Fibreglass Mouldings Ltd., is a glass-fibre reinforced (GRP) polyester panel incorporating Biomaster antimicrobial protection.
It is an innovative alternative to ceramic tiles with the grout line incorporated as an integral part of the panel. However, NoTile™ is much cleaner than traditional ceramic wall tiles and also virtually maintenance-free.
Unlike ceramic tiles they are also quick and easy to fit, with no unsightly black mould growth. With the addition of Biomaster technology incorporated into the gel coating of the panels, they are the most hygienic choice available for tiling projects.
NoTile™ is incredibly versatile and the flexible panels can be fixed to plaster, wood, brick and even over the top of old traditional ceramic tiles.
The product is ideal in public areas where the risk of cross-contamination is great, due to humid conditions or constant usage and has been used in Little Chef, Starbucks, hospitals, private restaurants and elderly residential care homes.
In 2016 the company won a contract to refurbish 1100 restaurants across the UK with NoTile™.
