Commercial kitchens

A commercial kitchen is a zone that’s filled with fumes, oil, moisture, heat etc. Over the years, kitchen walls can begin to deteriorate fast. Yes, Duramax PVC panels are designed for such walls and for such environment. Our wall panels not only take care of the walls but ensure a healthy and safe environment for cooking, preparing food. If there is mold, mildew, bacteria and formation of microorganisms all around, there would be chances of food poisoning after consumption and the cooks inside would also suffer terribly. Our panels are also fire-resistant.


Fisheries and agriculture

The vegetable and fruits would mold if they would be stored in rooms that have water damage and bacteria building. From fishing to agriculture to food processing, a walling material that is water resistant, easy to clean, and anti-bacterial should be used.
