Palram's PALCLAD™ PRO operation room
Reducing hospital acquired infections • optimizing building maintenance • aesthetics
According to the World Health Organization, millions of people suffer annually from hospital acquired infections, some with grave consequences. Prevention is the key factor in the struggle to reduce these incidents.
Rambam Hospital, which serves over 2 million residents of Northern Israel, selected reducing infections as one of its primary targets. The campuses' maintenance management sourced hygienic wall cladding suppliers that could deliver a solution and chose Palclad-Prime, for its hygienic properties and for its streamlined appearance and ease of maintenance.
The construction & maintenance team leader at the Israeli hospital said, "While working at a healthcare center in Jerusalem, I saw Palram's Palclad Prime made of PVC sheets. It's a hygienic wall and ceiling cladding system. It seemed so simple to install and easy to clean. I chose to apply it in Rambam as well. It's really simple. Instead of flooring painting and tiling, we use hygienic plastic PVC wall cladding. It is easy to install and easy to clean.
It does not scratch; crack or tarnish, and it can be used for wall and ceiling and for a wide range of solutions. Our hygienic wall cladding installers have applied Palclad-Pro throughout the campus area: departments, corridors, kitchens, offices, even in the underground parking lot, where there is no longer any need for repainting. In fact, in the 3 years since the hygienic wall cladding system has been installed, the wall maintenance has been reduced to zero. "
Palclad-Pro, a PVC hygienic wall cladding system, provides active bio-security thanks to its antimicrobial surface properties. Controlled tests, dated February 2020, showed a reduction of 88%-99.99% in the count of microbial colonies after 24 hours on Palclad-Pro.
Long-term tests compared Palclad-Pro with ceramic tiles and yield even superior results in elimination of microbial colonies.
