Tennant Company Introduces Durable Wall Coating Systems to Reduce Maintenance Costs and Minimize Cleaning Time

Oct. 04, 2011

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct 04, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Tennant Company (NYSE: TNC), a world leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, today launched its Mat and Glazed Wall Coating Systems to provide durable interior wall surfaces that are simple to clean, easy to maintain and reduce maintenance costs. Tennant's epoxy wall coating systems provide seamless, impact-resistant surfaces for an attractive alternative to concrete walls, concrete masonry units, drywall, ceramic tile, laminates and cement board.

Tennant Company developed its wall coating systems to provide flexible solutions that create a professional-looking appearance and save facility owners money. Specifically designed for environments that require frequent cleaning such as commercial restrooms, locker rooms and shower areas, commercial and industrial kitchens, laboratories, hospitals and schools, Tennant's wall coating systems provide chemical and abrasion resistance to stand up to the toughest of conditions. With unmatched durability and aesthetic appeal, the Mat and Glazed Wall Coating Systems can be integrated with Tennant's seamless flooring system to provide a continuous sealed surface that does not promote bacterial growth caused by surface contamination.

Tennant Wall Coating Systems benefits include:

  • Reduced maintenance costs with an easy-to-clean surface
  • Enhanced visual appeal with an integrated fiberglass sheet that covers tool joints and wall defects with Tennant's mat system
  • Minimized repair costs created from long-lasting durability and increased impact and crack resistance
  • Increased facility air quality from low-odor and low-emitting materials, paints and coatings that offer LEED credits
  • Improved facility customization with a wide array of colors and textures to complement your customer's image

"We're committed to creating products that not only help our customers create cleaner facilities, but also help with their bottom line," said Mickey Gubman, Director of Coating Technologies for Tennant Company. "Our wall coatings offer a superior combination of durability, flexible application and cost savings. We believe facility managers that have continual cleaning requirements will especially benefit from the easy maintenance of our Mat and Glazed Wall Coating Systems."
