Many laboratories are governed by, and monitored against, cleanliness standards - but yet they fail to address one of the most common areas of visible contamination, the suspended ceiling
More than 75% of suspended ceiling installed within the laboratory environment have some visible stains, discolouration or mould evident which can not only affect how your customers, visitors or staff perceives your organisation, but which can compromise data collected under experimental conditions, says Suspended Ceiling Restoration.
Water stains, fingerprints, discolouration around air conditioning grills and general ceiling grime are commonplace across many so called 'clean' industries.
The Suspended Ceiling Restoration Company (SCR) has developed a range of inexpensive coatings that can be applied to any ceiling surface and associated grids.
It says these coatings will restore your ceiling or individual tiles to 'better than new' condition, while at the same time providing a microbial growth inhibitor (Biocote) that will continue working for the lifetime of the coated ceiling, inhibiting the growth of microbes by up to 99.9%.
SCR coatings can be delivered in a spray can version (SO-10 Safeguard), can be applied by skilled technicians for larger areas (SCR Service), or can be delivered as a self apply system for those who have their own decorating teams (SCR System).
Once applied, the non-bridging SCR coating will maintain your ceiling fire rating and acoustic properties and will represent a saving of no less than 75% of the cost of replacement ceiling tiles.
Where asbestos ceilings are present, applying SCR coatings will save a minimum 500% against the cost of replacement, says the company.
