In many branches of industry, multistorey and high transportation vehicles are used during the transportation of products in production and storage areas. When the vehicles used in the process of bringing and distributing the products hit the walls and columns, paints may be removed in these areas or fractures may occur due to impacts. However, hygienic skirting boards protect the hygienic walls and columns against all impacts with their robust structure.
In some facilities that require high hygiene, acids and chemicals are also used in the production process. Acids and chemicals can damage walls and panels. Hygienic skirting boards protect the areas from acids and chemicals.

Differences Between Hygienic Skirting and PVC Skirting
Hygienic skirting and PVC skirting are two different types of skirting boards that are commonly used.
We produce our hygienic skirting boards from food-grade polymer material that does not contain glass fiber. Our products designed to be easy to clean, hygienic and resistant to bacterial growth, this type of skirting board is especially suitable for use in areas where hygiene is very important and hygienic walls, such as commercial kitchens, hospitals and food processing facilities.
On the other hand, PVC skirting is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a synthetic plastic. This type of skirting is often used in residential and commercial buildings as a protective covering to seal the joint between the wall and the floor. PVC skirting is available in a variety of colors and finishes to match the decor of the area where it will be applied and is often used as a cost-effective alternative to wooden skirting.
In summary, the main difference between hygienic skirting and PVC skirting is their usage intention and the materials they are made of. While hygienic skirting is designed for use in environments where hygiene is priority, PVC skirting is a cost-effective option for residential and commercial spaces.
