Laboratory grade wall cladding systems are defined as certain building materials that ensure sanitation and cleanliness.

Laboratory rooms are one of the critical places that demand high-quality cladding finishes.

Most of the laboratory-grade wall cladding is non-porous and moisture-resistant.

The best laboratory wall claddings should be extremely resistant to scratching.

Below are solutions that laboratory-grade wall cladding offers.

1. Ventilation

The laboratory-grade claddding is designed to maintain occupational health and comfort.

2. Fire prevention

Laboratory grade wall cladding detects and suppresses fires. The material limits flammability and risks of chemical fires.

3. An emergency supply of power

Laboratory-grade wall coverings don't interfere with operations of valuable life and safety protective measures such as protection systems, fire detection, and egress lighting.

4. Control of dangerous gases

It lessens the emissions of accidental releases of gases in the laboratory. You can't have building materials that will absorb dangerous gases and release them later.

5. Building height

Laboratory grade wall cladding systems are designed to fit the height of laboratory structures based on chemical usage.

6. Seismic needs

It lessens the dangers created by earthquakes. This is of particular importance in the Pacific Northwest.

7. Chemical resistance

A medical laboratory needs to be resistant to chemicals of various kinds ranging from decontamination, neutralization of strong acids and fumigation. The great approach is to look for the ACDP categorization of the laboratory, and then select the appropriate wall finish.

8. Scrub resistance

Laboratory walls require regular scrubbing to clean. We recommend you to buy a laboratory-grade wall cladding that is easy to clean.

9. Anti-microbial

To lessen the cases of contamination and the spread of germs, you need to buy a laboratory wall cladding that battles both bacteria and fungi.
