The Impact of Protective Wall Coverings

Wall protection is an essential addition to any busy work environment. Damage to your walls can happen with the slightest impact, leading to unsightly marks and even structural damage. Without taking preventative measures, this will be a reoccurring problem that will cost you valuable time and money that could be better invested elsewhere.

Wall protection products offer a long-term solution to protecting your building from impact and everyday accidents. Whether you work in a hospital, educational facility, or office space, wall protection is an efficient and effective way to protect your building interiors from sudden impact and long-lasting damage.

Using Wall Protection in Healthcare and Aged Care

Hospitals and Clinics

Hospitals and healthcare facilities are hectic workplaces with many high-traffic areas, such as waiting rooms and corridors. These are prime spots for an accident to happen, be it furniture being pulled back too quickly or a wheelchair clipping a corner.

With so much to take care of already, the last thing you need to worry about is fixing the damage to your walls. Wall protection is a simple way to provide extra support to the most vulnerable sectors of your healthcare facilities, allowing you and your staff to focus on more important things.

Of course, hygiene and infection control are crucial in any health facility, both for staff and patients. Our wall protection is made from PVC, which is naturally antibacterial and easy to clean, making it perfect for any environment that needs to remain hygienic.

Without protection, you run the risk of germs spreading and an increase in maintenance costs. We recommend installing wall protection in high-traffic areas such as corridors, waiting rooms, patient rooms, and nurses’ stations.

Aged Care Facilities

Aged care facilities provide a vital service to some of our most treasured citizens, but they’re also full of risks to your walls. Wheelchairs, walkers, trolleys, bedding, and furniture can all lead to chipped paint, dents, or even holes in your walls.

Wall protection doesn’t just improve the sustainability of your building structure; it increases the safety of various environments throughout your complex.

Aesthetics plays an important role in aged care facilities as you want to create a welcoming and safe environment where people can enjoy their golden years. Luckily, wall protection is available in a range of colours and styles.

Whether you want to install something that suits your current decor or you want to give your facility a complete makeover, wall protection has you covered.

Preserving Educational and Sports Facilities

Schools and Educational Institutions

Any teacher will tell you how rowdy a classroom can get, not to mention how reckless students can be during their lunch breaks. With so many locations across the school vulnerable to chipped or peeling paint, dents, and other damage, it won’t be long until your walls experience impact.

There’s so much you could be spending your school budget on, and constant repainting and repairs can drain the bank balance. School corridors, gymnasiums, cafeterias, and even the classrooms themselves can all benefit from wall protection, greatly reducing your school’s maintenance costs.

Gyms and Sports Centres

Gyms and sports centres have a lot of heavy equipment, and people give it their all, so you need walls that can handle anything that’s thrown at them.

Just a slight nudge from a dumbbell could lead to some serious damage to your gym wall, so wall protection is a must for any workout area. Installing wall protection also offers a hygienic and easy-to-clean solution for changing rooms and bathroom areas.

Enhancing Workspaces and Commercial Buildings

Business and Service Offices

First impressions are invaluable for any business, and how your office looks plays a major role in how your clients perceive you. Wall protection gives your workspace a sleek, modern look while providing impact resistance functionality for your walls. Busy areas like reception areas and conference rooms are full of moving furniture and can greatly benefit from wall protection.

Commercial Buildings

Building repairs can be an expensive and time-consuming proposition. Even small chips and dents can be costly to fix and can have long-term effects on your structural integrity. Repeated surface and structural damage can compromise the safety of your building and even reduce its overall property value.

Installing wall protection in hallways, lobbies, and around elevators will provide a stylish interior design to your building that will provide longevity for your property and cut down on cleaning and maintenance costs.

Durability for Hospitality and Leisure

Hotels and Hospitality

A large part of hospitality is the atmosphere your building creates. Any signs of damage can leave a poor impression on guests and have a knock-on effect on the performance of your business.

Wall protection will reduce your maintenance requirements, ensure positive experiences for your clientele, and lessen the need for frequent refurbishments. For hotels and restaurants, some of the key places to install wall protection include guest rooms, hallways, and dining spaces.

Sports and Leisure Facilities

Your wall needs to withstand impact in any situation, be it an intense semi-final or one of the spectators jumping out of their chair a little too enthusiastically.

Wall protection in indoor arenas and pool areas allows your walls to remain pristine and look good, creating an environment patrons want to keep returning to.

It also helps your facility meet safety requirements, thereby reducing liability risks. On top of that, you’ll save a bundle on upkeep and repairs, money you can better spend on equipment and sporting goods.

Safety and Aesthetics in Transportation Hubs

Aviation and Transportation Facilities

Whether it’s an airport or train station, transportation hubs can have thousands of visitors a day. This level of high traffic calls for the best wall protection for your facility.

The sleek, clean look of PVC wall panels will make customers feel welcome and safe while adding to their overall travel experience. All of this contributes to maintaining your brand image and building customer relations.

Wall protection is an ideal addition to waiting areas, eating areas, baggage claim areas, and boarding gates.

Wall Protection is a Wise Investment for Any Business

Maintenance and upkeep costs can eat into your profits and valuable time if you don’t take any preventative steps. Wall protection provides versatility in both aesthetics and solutions for guarding your building from sudden impact.
