Students all across the world have suffered huge disruption to their educations with lockdown and closures caused by COVID. Now more than ever, we understand the many challenges that students and teachers face. We must all provide a safe and hygienic space that presents an optimum and consistent learning environment. But how do we do this effectively to keep schools open and students safe? One aspect that can help is to consider hygienic surfaces throughout education settings.

Hygiene in schools, colleges and universities 

Hygienic wall cladding, washroom cubicles and robust and durable doors with complementing hygienic handrails can all support the fight against germs and bacteria. With pupils, staff and visitors in education facilities daily, they are considered to be high traffic environments where hygiene must be closely monitored for the health of its users.

Wall cladding

Especially useful in food preparation areas, sports facilities, as well as classrooms, labs, corridors and changing rooms, hygienic wall cladding, can actively protect against bacteria. Trovex Diamond cladding boasts extraordinary strength and resistance to impact, moisture and chemicals. Trovex Diamond is used to effectively clad walls and ceilings providing a low-maintenance and antibacterial, hygienic surface which is a great choice for education facilities. Plus it’s been designed to achieve a perfectly matched finish in a wide range of colours. Take a look at one of our projects at Kingshott School in Hitchin where we refurbished their shower area and food technology room.

Trovex Gallery

This striking photographic surfacing option lets you choose from a range of scenic backdrops, or supply your own image for a truly bespoke finish on walls in your educational setting. Trovex Gallery can help to create an engaging space to inspire creativity and learning, plus it will provide a low-maintenance and hygienic finish for every surface. 


Schools demand heavy-duty hygienic and safe doors that are durable, look great and meet health and safety standards. The Hygidoor has been designed for exactly that. Tough to withstand constant use and strong to protect from damage and potential vandalism which can be a hazard in some education settings. At Howbridge Junior School, we worked with the team to supply and install a series of Hygidoors that were robust and easy to maintain and they chose a vibrant colour scheme to add a positive and bright feel to the school corridors and classrooms.

Washroom cubicles

Our range of washroom cubicles and accessories are hard-wearing, easy to clean and maintain and designed specifically for educational facilities. At Grange Park School in London, we provided a full refurbishment of their washrooms using their school colours and fun prints to engage pupils.  Clean lines and innovative design can make all the difference when keeping washrooms clean and germ-free, and so we’ll work with you using tried and tested processes to ensure your project is completed on time and within budget.
