Kydex - A&E Hull Hospital


A great deal changed last year, the biggest shift we saw was of course, for the requirement for hygienic, wipe cleanable surfaces. This shift was so significant we saw a 249% increase in sales of thermoplastic laminates into the construction sector! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The majority of this increase was driven by Kydex, which we’re proud to say we supplied to the NHS Nightingale hospital, for use as the overbed tables and IPS units.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kydex is an advanced thermoplastic that packs a real punch! Containing anti-microbial protection, Kydex is perfect for high traffic areas that need to stand up to rigorous cleaning and not show any staining, fading or surface damage in areas such as hospitals and schools. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This versatile and highly robust thermoplastic can be moulded to any shape. It’s often used for worktops, counters, desks, wall panels, doors and furniture. That’s not all, it can be colour matched too, lending it perfectly for corporate branding.
