When it comes to Wall Cladding, SPS CleanTech has the solution to meet your specific requirements and budget for clean spaces. SPS CleanTech is proud to partner with Takiron and AM-Clad to provide PVC Wall Panel systems that offer the highest level of durability and hygienics combined with attractive finishes. Our products are used in a variety of applications around the world such as Cleanrooms, Life Science, Healthcare, Food & Beverage facilities, Commercial Kitchens, and Schools. Our Panels are very scratch and stain resistant and they are easy to maintain versus painted drywalls that require continuous repairs and painting.
We offer cost-effective solutions that are easy to install, have low maintenance and long life. SPS CleanTech’s broad product portfolio is well suited to meet most unique wall cladding requirements for clean spaces.
Industry standards and regulations demand that clean space wall surfaces are smooth, easy to clean, durable, impervious to contamination, and resistant to scratches and dents. All cleanroom wall systems must be installed seamlessly to prevent cracks, gaps, and fissures where contaminants can collect.
Frequent activities occur in clean space settings; carts, furniture and equipment is regularly moved around and a coated wall system can chip, flake or crack, causing costly repairs or even shutdowns.
The traditional approach has been to use epoxy paint over drywall. Unfortunately, this can be problematic in addressing modern sanitary and durability issues, as epoxy-painted walls require constant maintenance and repairs. Another approach is to use FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) panels. FRP panels use fiberglass filaments in the resin. If FRP panels are scratched or dented these filaments could be released into the clean space. Our PVC panels are made with just PVC and will not shed any particulates into the clean space.
SPS CleanTech offers cost-effective wall cladding solutions that are easy to install, require very little maintenance and have long life. Our broad product portfolio is well suited to meet most unique wall cladding requirements for clean spaces.
Takiron IVY-ONE cPVC (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) wall cladding system provides users with the cleanest possible environment due to its high-density, non-porous construction, smooth surface finish and natural chemical resistance. The Takiron IVY-ONE system is made from IVY-ONE 573®, a durable material with tremendous impact resistance and durability. It won’t flake, chip or crack. Once the panels are heat-welded together, it becomes a seamless configuration. IVY-ONE is manufactured to withstand strong sporicidal cleaners as well as harsh chemical cleaning agents. It is even strong enough to handle high-pressure washing and direct steam.
One of the biggest advantages of using Takiron IVY-ONE is it’s one of the few wall panel systems that is FM 4882 approved. FM 4882 is the standard developed by FM Global for products used as interior cleanroom wall materials. The standard combines FM 4880 and ASTM E84 standards into one harmonized standard for pharmaceutical, biotech, and food industries. FM 4882-approved panels are low-smoke emittance and will not allow self-propagation of a fire.

AM-Clad PVCu (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) panels have a smooth, durable, hygienic, and easy-to-clean surface that helps users meet demanding regulatory requirements, maximize production time and provides superior levels of hygiene and infection control. AM-Clad offers two types of PVCu panels to meet different levels of protection – Hygienic Panels (in standard or decorative) and Antimicrobial Panels. All of these Panels are ASTM-E84 Class A smoke and fire rated. These panels can be heat-welded using a color-matched vinyl weld rod, cold-welded using silicone caulking or sealed with plastic Divider/Edge Trims. This process creates a smooth, seamless surface that ensures there is no place to harbor contaminants.
AM-Clad’s PVCu Hygienic Wall system is offered in a variety of colors and patterns to allow customization to distinguish each room. The PVC Wall Panels are also available in different thickness to match the level of protection required.
For a typical hygiene-critical environment, AM-Clad’s standard Hygienic Panels are more than adequate to provide the protection required. These Hygienic, premium grade, non-toxic, solid PVCu wall panels ideal for Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Medical, and Food & Beverage facilities.
Decorative graphics can transform the feel of any space. It can change a medical facility into a landscape oasis, a sterile school into an encouraging comforting place, or sanitary workspace into a unique, uplifting environment.
AM-Clad’s Vision Panel System offers a selection of attractive designs including tile, brick, wood, marble and fabric, as well as the option to use your own high-resolution photos and graphics to create exclusive designs for your clean spaces.
The AM-Clad Vision system combines premium grade solid PVCu with advanced high-resolution print technology and a hardwearing protective coating that is proven in commercial clean space environments. Our wall cladding is UV printed and LED cured, delivered ready to install. The digital printed finish does not affect the hygienic properties of the wall cladding in any way.
The system is ideal for both dry and wet environments, from kitchens to spas and indoor pool surrounds.
For hygiene-critical environments to be truly optimized, antimicrobial protection is becoming essential. The COVID pandemic has taught us that it is more important than ever to protect employees and clients from the spread of bacteria and viruses. Antimicrobial is defined as any substance that demonstrates the ability to resist, inhibit and prevent the growth of microbes such as bacteria, mold, fungi and viruses. Antimicrobial should not be confused with Antibacterial. Antibacterial is different in that it is only effective against bacteria. Antimicrobial is effective against a much wider spectrum of microbes.
AM-Clad’s Antimicrobial Panels are PVCu panels that are infused with billions of minuscule particles of silver ions during the manufacturing process. The silver ions are invisible to the naked eye and are dispersed throughout the panel, not just on the surface. These silver ions provide the extra level of antimicrobial protection that traditional PVCu panels cannot.
To achieve the highest level of protection against microbes, bacterial, mold and mildew, AM-Clad is pleased to offer Antimicrobial Panels. These Panels have silver ions embedded throughout which naturally provides a superior level of hygiene and infection control.
