When you are designing a commercial kitchen from scratch, one of the things that you have to consider is the walls. It may sound unimportant, but it is true. In a busy catering kitchen, a wall can very often suffer from splashes, so the walls need to be able to be wiped down easily, and the most cost-effective wall covering is kitchen cladding.
Certainly, you can use tiling, which is also easy to wipe down, but it is expensive. Kitchen wall cladding is just as easy, if not easier, to wipe down and costs a lot less. When you are starting a new catering business from scratch, you need to cut costs wherever you can, and using catering kitchen cladding is one way of doing that.
