Keeping a busy hotel looking smart and welcoming is no easy task. Daily wear and tear from guests and staff can quickly take their toll, leaving even the newest or most recently renovated hotel looking scruffy and poorly maintained.
Here are seven of our customer favourites that have proved particularly popular for keeping hotel interiors looking smarter longer, as well as helping to reduce long-term building maintenance costs.
1. Entrances – CS Pedimat® Ultra Entrance Flooring
It is important to trap dirt at the hotel entrance as it is more costly to collect and remove once it has entered the hotel. Dirt also increases wear and tear on expensive internal floor finishes such as stone, marble, carpet, wood, tile or terazzo.
CS Pedimat® Ultra is highly effective at removing both soil and moisture from foot and wheeled traffic with a triple scraping, brushing, and absorbing action. Pediluxe has a slim profile and wide range of tread inserts and colour options, allowing it to fit easily alongside the majority of floorings and producing a luxurious finish suitable for hotels.
2. Doors – CS Acrovyn® Door & Frame Protection
Hotel doors and door frames are frequently damaged by heavy suitcases and cleaning trolleys. As well as looking unsightly this damage can also result in safety issues, such as compromising the fire integrity of a fire rated door.
CS Acrovyn Door & Frame Protection can help you minimise the damage to hotel doors, for a fraction of the cost of repairing or replacing a door. Acrovyn is a extremely tough “through colour” material specially designed to minimise and hide the effects of impact damage.
Acrovyn Door Edge Protectors are available for both non-fire rated and fire rated doors and are easy to install on new or existing doors. Acrovyn Kick Plates and Push Plates and a range of matching protective panels are also available.
3. Corridors – CS Acrovyn® Rub Rails & Crash Rails
Corridors, staircases and other circulation areas also suffer from impact damage caused by heavy luggage and cleaning trolleys. In these areas timber rails and flock wallpaper aren’t enough and quickly end up scratched and damaged.
For heavier circulation areas such as main corridors, elevator halls and staircases, a heavy duty crash rail such as CS Acrovyn SCR200 is a popular choice. This hard wearing Acrovyn crashrail is available in a wide range of colours and looks good for years, whilst the shock absorbing bumpers protect the underlying wall from any damage.
For lighter trafficked areas such as smaller corridors, CS Acrovyn FR225 Rub Rail are a great choice for protecting walls from trolley damage whilst keeping costs to a minimum.
4. Kitchens – CS Wallsheen Hygienic Coatings
As any chef will testify, keeping a commercial kitchen spotlessly clean is a real challenge – and hotel kitchens are no exception. Wall coverings such as tiles are easily damaged, with cracks and grouting harbouring bacteria and fungi, whilst regular wall emulsions simply do not stand up to rigorous cleaning regimes.
CS Wallsheen is a “super-emulsion” combining superior durability with anti-microbial properties to ensure resistance to E.coli, Salmonella typhimurium and fungi. Wallsheen is as easy to apply as regular emulsion but the coating’s thickness makes it resilient to daily essential cleaning regimes making it a great choice for hotel kitchens.
5. Back-of-house – CS Acrovyn Rubber Protection
Whilst back-of-house and delivery areas at hotels don’t need to maintain the high standard of public facing corridors and rooms, they do need to be protected from heavy goods trolleys and delivery vehicles.
The CS Acrovyn range of tough EPDM rubber crashrails, bumpers and corner guards have excellent shock-absorbing and weather resistant qualities. Easy to install, they can be fixed directly to concrete, steel, masonry and timber – protecting walls, pillars and posts from expensive damage and reducing long term back-of-house maintenance costs.
We’ve been helping hotel owners, managers, construction companies and architects solve the challenges of making hotels look smarter longer for many years.
