23rd Jun, 2023 by Dennis Chalas

In any commercial or industrial setting, cleanliness and sanitation are of the utmost importance. Not only do clients and customers expect to see a clean environment, but it's also important for the health and safety of employees. One way to help create a clean and sanitary environment is to install hygienic wall baseboards also called antimicrobial baseboards. Here's a look at some of the benefits of this type of baseboard.

Benefits of Antimicrobial Baseboards

There are many reasons to choose antimicrobial baseboards over traditional options.

1. Inhibits Growth and Transmission of Harmful Microbes

It provides a clean and smooth transition from wall to floor. This creates a professional appearance that is easy to maintain. Antimicrobial baseboards such as BBAM-4SS Antimicrobial Baseboard help to inhibit the growth and transmission of harmful microbes. The baseboards are made from .063-inch aluminum with an antimicrobial powder coat finish, which helps to kill bacteria and prevent the growth of mold and mildew. This is an important consideration in any setting where cleanliness is a priority, such as healthcare facilities, food service establishments, and schools.

2. Ease of Installation

Another benefit of antimicrobial baseboards is that they can be installed in a continuous fashion. Outside corners are available for wrapping corners, which is what allows the baseboard to be installed in a continuous fashion. This is an important consideration for busy areas where there is a lot of traffic and where a seamless look is desired.

3. Available in Different Sizes

An antimicrobial baseboard is made from a plywood backer that mounts directly to the wall. The antimicrobial cover then mounts to the plywood with adhesive or mechanical fasteners. This type of baseboard is available in standard lengths and can be cut to fit in the field by installers. It's also available in different heights, thicknesses, and finishes to suit your needs.
