Aneurin Bevan NHS Trust required a hard-wearing anti-bacterial paint for the makeover at Royal Gwent Hospital, which had to be completed within the strict timescale to ensure minimum disruption to patients.
In order to meet both criteria Dulux Trade specified Dulux Trade Sterishield Diamond Eggshell, which is a quick drying, water-based paint containing an in-film bactericide, which inhibits bacteria and reduces populations of MRSA and E. coli.
When combined with appropriate cleaning practices, Sterishield Diamond Eggshell from Dulux Trade helps to promote a more hygienic environment. It is a tough, washable, durable, mid-sheen emulsion and is suitable for all normal interior wall and ceiling surfaces.
In order to further transform areas across the hospital, the Dulux Trade specification team created a dedicated colour palette to aid wayfinding, assigning a distinctive shade to each floor level.
