When someone walks into your business, you want to make sure you have put your best foot forward so that everything looks well maintained, clean, and professional. You have one chance to make a good first impression. Ensuring your building is aesthetically pleasing doesn’t just have to do with your cleaning schedule or decor, it starts with choosing your wall protection.
Something that is very obvious when you walk into high-traffic areas is the condition of the walls. Facilities such as hospitals and kitchens have heavy foot traffic and typically move large pieces of equipment around leaving marks and scuffs on their walls. An effective solution to minimize this problem is choosing a stainless steel wall covering.
Why Stainless Steel?
In addition to being visually appealing, stainless steel is incredibly durable; so instead of replacing wall coverings or repairing holes and nicks in your walls every year, stainless steel simply has to be kept clean. It can withstand high impact, daily use as it is extremely sturdy and unyielding, and it does not corrode with the use of harsh cleaners. This is going to cut down on time and money spent on maintenance and replacement costs.
Stainless steel is also 100% recyclable, and new material normally contains between 50-80% recycled material already. So not only are you getting a great solution for your wall coverings, but you are also making an environmentally sustainable choice.
An added benefit is that some of our stainless steel options include concealed fasteners which can minimize bacterial growth, especially in restaurant and healthcare environments.
There are many facilities that use stainless steel. Here are just a few of them:
- Places with high cart traffic
- Behavioral Health
- Food Production
How To Keep Stainless Steel Looking Great
One consideration that can come up when considering stainless steel is how difficult it can be to keep clean of fingerprints and water marks. The good news is that if you know how to properly clean it, it’s not as difficult as you might think.
MPS stainless steel is actually very easy to care for and clean with various polishes, turpentine, or soap and water to prevent water staining. You can even polish it with watered-down vinegar or olive oil if you choose. When it is bright and clean, stainless steel is extremely pleasing to the eye.
