UK launch for first hygienic wall and ceiling covering to meet stringent EU fire safety standard

01 May 2013

The first range of hygienic wall and ceiling panels to meet stringent European fire safety standards is now available in the UK.

Beplas Hygienic Walls and Ceilings Ltd has signed an exclusive stock holding deal with US manufacturer Panolam Industries Inc, to market its range of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) in the UK.
It is the only hygienic cladding material in the UK to achieve B,S2,d0 to EN13501certification and has been proven to be more fire resistant than traditional PVC-based panels , giving off significantly less smoke and with lower smoke toxicity.
Panolam FRP is widely used in the USA in the food manufacturing industry as well as hospitals, restaurants, fast food outlets, schools, care homes and other establishments where public safety and good hygiene are of paramount importance.
Jay Moorhouse, Beplas Director, said: “We are really pleased to be working with Panolam Industries to help raise the standard for safety in public buildings in the UK. FRP is a very versatile and hard wearing product with the added benefit of a really impressive fire safety rating.”
The Panolam FRP range of wall and ceiling coverings is available from Beplas, with extensive stocks held in the UK, meaning that the company can typically deliver within 48 hours.
