In food preparation areas where maintain hygiene levels need to be maintained, durability and functionality are key. There are a range of tiles on the market to suit all requirements and budgets.
Popular tiles for these areas are gypsum plasterboard with a wipeable vinyl face, meaning they can be cleaned quickly and easily with a damp cloth. For enhanced performance there are also a number of specialist bio-coated ceiling tiles with antifungal properties to offer extra peace of mind.
The nature of the appliances used in food preparation areas also make humidity resistance worth considering. We recommend ceiling tiles with a rating of at least 90% to avoid possible sagging in these environments.
