Picture a waterfall. Now picture it on your wall. Looks good, doesn’t it? And so relaxing! That is what Altro Whiterock Digiclad (Custom) is all about. It’s a really simple way of creating the wow factor in areas where looks matter or a relaxing ambience where wellbeing is of concern. Altro Whiterock Digiclad (Custom) gives you a beautiful image in photographic quality on your wall, printed onto the tried and trusted Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding sheet.
We’ve put together a selection of images and graphics for you to choose from. All you have to do is pick your favourite, then decide what size you want and the number of panels you need. We then supply you with the right amount of adhesive, tape, silicone, primer and anti-static cleaner for the size and width of panels ordered.
You could choose to make a big statement in an entire space or create a feature wall in reception areas for example. You’ll see a lot of biophilic imagery in the collection. These scenes are a firm favourite in healthcare environments, making waiting and treatment rooms more relaxing. They’re also great in offices and retail, creating the right mood for staff to relax and shoppers to purchase.
Where Altro Whiterock Digiclad (Custom) really stands out is in its durability and maintenance, compared with alternative materials. Unlike a painted wall, wallpaper, murals or a tiled wall, Altro Whiterock Digiclad (Custom) requires very little upkeep and lasts for many years, saving you the time and expense of annual repairs.
The great news for those of you already familiar with our Altro Whiterock sheet, is that these customisable walls are part of the Altro Whiterock range; so you get all the benefits of the Altro Whiterock system in a bespoke option.
The Altro Whiterock sheet is dense and impervious. It’s an extruded semi-rigid, 2.5mm thick PVCu hygienic wall sheet, which will keep the wall area looking better for longer. The sheet forms part of a system, including all the accessories you need. Our Altro Whiterock system has been on the market now for 40 years and is a trusted and proven solution. The fact that the sheet is semi-rigid is important; it means that you get just enough flexibility in the sheet to install it over slight wall imperfections, without compromising on performance and durability.
Of course, if you want your own image printed on your wall or need to tell people that Maternity is straight on or the Bistro is next left we have a completely customisable solution too. Have a look at https://www.altro.co.uk/Altro-Whiterock-Digiclad for more details.
