A kitchen is primarily a working space. The work carried out there produces a lot of noise, heat and humidity. The hygienic demands are high, especially for a kitchen within a hospital. Cleanability has historically been achieved by using hard surfaced, sound reflecting materials.
All surfaces, including the ceiling, should withstand frequent wet cleaning, sometimes with high pressure hosing. High pressure cleaning requires the ceiling panels to be clipped to the grid.
- Ecophon Hygiene products have been tried and tested in environments that have a higher relative humidity than you find in most hospital rooms. The Ecophon Hygiene family of ceiling systems incorporate both ceiling tiles and grids and accessories that can be used in environments with a risk for a high relative humidity.
