There are countless wallcovering options available on the market however we primarily recommend Type II vinyl wallcovering for public spaces because of its durability, cleanability, and customization options. All Type II wallcoverings are manufactured to meet or exceed minimum physical and performance characteristics set forth in Federal Specifications CCC-W-408. Within these legal standards, there are requirements for wash-ability and scrub-ability among many other specifications. While Type II wallcoverings must be cleanable by law, this does not imply that the product can be cleaned with bleach or other similar harsh chemicals that are known to kill COVID-19.
Because of the pandemic, many manufacturers have begun to offer bleach cleanable and antimicrobial wallcoverings along with furniture fabrics. In order for a material to be considered bleach cleanable, it cannot weaken or fade when exposed to diluted bleach. If your building is interested in material that can help combat the spread of COVID-19, we can help you navigate through the overwhelming amount of choices to find the right solution for your building. We can create any color, pattern, or texture that you can imagine using the appropriate substance that is unique to your building’s specific needs and budget.
