Protecting the internal walls of educational establishments is essential to maintaining an environment that stimulates learning and is more often than not written into yearly maintenance budgets. However, there is a solution that would greatly reduce the need for annual interior refurbishments whilst, more importantly, supporting risk assessments and protecting staff and pupils by reducing the spread of harmful bacteria.


Anti-bacterial protection sheet from leading UK manufacturer, Intastop Ltd, provides this all-encompassing solution for both walls and doors.


The Anti-bacterial protection sheet is enhanced so that the protection is impregnated into the sheet at the time of manufacture which permeates each layer to ensure that the product retains its integrity should it become damaged. And, because it has low water solubility and imperviousness to UV light, it continues to work for the lifespan of the product or up to 10 years.


“Schools and education facilities are continually looking for measures to enhance the health and safety of their staff, visitors and pupils at present,” said Lisa Turner, Marketing Manager Intastop. “The anti-bacterial sheet can ensure that no long lasting germs are left on walls or push plates of doors therefore, greatly enhancing daily cleaning regimes and protection. It will also protect internal walls in high traffic areas such as corridors or halls and keep internal aesthetics at an optimum for much longer.”


The impact protection sheet is designed to withstand everyday knocks, bumps and scuffs that routinely occur in schools and colleges and is easily fitted to doors, walls and cupboards to offer a high level of hygiene, protection, easy maintenance and cleaning.


Class ‘O’ fire-rated and achieves BS:476 parts 6 and 7, the sheet is can be ordered pre-cut, bespoke or can be cut on site by installers. It is available in a range of colours to stimulate learning or co-ordinate with existing schemes, and with an option to digitally print graphics and logos, can suit any interior design requirements.


Intastop has also developed a range of adhesives for the application of impact protection products. The range includes water based contact, hygienic cladding and spray contact adhesives.
