Amanda Rees, Clinical Research Facility Operations Manager for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, was looking to create a less clinical environment for her patients and to make their time at the new hospital more relaxing. She was made aware of HP PVC-free Durable Wallpaper that is certified environmentally safe for use in hospitals and other sensitive environments. It is also Type II Compliant for tough durability in a climate subject to intense wear and tear. Odourless, and with multiple environmental certifications, this wallpaper was the perfect solution to produce custom wall murals with images chosen by the children themselves in keeping with the overall design theme of nature.
“The installation of the custom wall murals had to go on while the hospital was in use and we felt confident that this wallcovering was safe and odourless so as not to affect the patients during install,” states Amanda. The wall mural project at Alder Hey was a success for all involved, but most importantly, for the children. Alder Hey HP Durable.
Preparation - Make sure that the bare wall is sound, clean and dry. Remove all loose paint, plaster or old paper and fill all holes and cracks with filler, smoothing down the surface when it is set.
"Size" The Wall - Prior to wallpapering it's a good idea to "size" the wall as this seals porous surfaces to prevent the paste from drying too fast and it also aids slip and slide when papering.
We recommend Mangers Heavy Duty Ready Mixed Wallpaper Adhesive - a super strong, ready to use adhesive perfect for hanging heavy duty wall coverings.
