Our PVC wall panels are specifically designed for the hygienic, low-maintenance and durable environment required by food processing, food storage, or commercial facilities. Easily versatile, the PVC wall panel system can be used to construct new rooms, or retrofit old structures. The best part is how easy and simple it is to install and as a result, also very low maintenance.
Shop online for FDA-compliant and ASTM-certified panels at Duramax online store. You save 40% less on material and 50% less on the labor cost. In addition, our food processing wall panels come at factory-direct prices and are shipped in just two weeks. Stop investing in FRP panels when you can get a better alternative in the vinyl wallboard. Instead, pay a higher price and choose PVC panels, which is a one-time investment. Initially, FRP panels might cost you less, but with constant callbacks for repairs and maintenance, you will end up spending more.
Adrian’s family has owned and operated a successful cattle ranch in middle America since the 1970s. Around the year 2000, her older brother parlayed this operation into several local butcher shops that grew into a statewide chain. Seeing that the business already covered two-thirds of the process that delivered meat products to their consumers’ homes, Adrian got the idea that they could cover all three: the production of the meat through their cattle farm; the production of different cuts through their butcher shops; and the production of packaged products through a food processing plant.
We came in to provide Duramax PVC wall panels for the food processing plant. Having completed expensive research on the requirements for processing meats, Adrian knew that there would be some liquids involved. She also knew it was important to keep a clean environment that was free of bacteria that could contaminate their meat products. After all, one bad batch was enough to put a dent in their reputation as a reliable brand.
Fortunately for Adrian, our vinyl wall panels carry all the benefits inherent in the material with our dedication to delivering the top quality product of its kind. Her new facility was fitted with our 100% waterproof PVC wall panels, which keeps fluids from accumulating under the surface, but also prevents fluids from getting between the seams. This attribute of PVC helps to stop bacteria from forming between the walls. In a meat processing plant, this becomes especially important since meat products are more susceptible than dry goods.
Her family operation has since started distributing their own packaged meat products with their own family staple, and Adrian expressed gratitude at our help in getting her plant up to speed. With the minimal upkeep required for PVC wall panels, she can focus more on the business. It will probably take a long time before their products become household names, but we were pleased to contribute in some small way to the success of Adrian’s venture.
Pearl and James Anders--who run a Milwaukee-based food processing plant--are acutely aware of the tight regulations placed on food processing operation by both the food industry and local and Federal government health and safety administrations. In their eleven years of food processing, the couple has never faced any penalties for their standards, and they weren’t interested in starting now. Outbreaks of contamination in similar businesses near their facility only increased the need for new measures.
Food processing plants are special cases among the clients that require different types of walls than the standard drywall and wood combination of most buildings because their buildings are about more than just stopping liquid from moving about. The Anders’ search for an antibacterial and moisture resistant wall panel that would prevent the spread of germs and mold-causing moisture led them to Duramax PVC wall panels. After a few samples were sent and compared to other wall panels of the same type--as well as panels made from different materials like the fiberglass they were already using--we got to work on the large operation of replacing their 10,000 square-foot facilities with new walls and ceilings.
The beauty of vinyl is that it does not allow any elements to thrive beneath its surface, including both water (moisture) and bacteria. Along with its inherent antibacterial properties, vinyl is installed in a way that is seamless. With the Anders’ facility, this meant that the microscopic threats that could enter their facility were far less likely to occur. It also means that the liquids used in processing wouldn’t enter the cracks or the wall’s materials, which could lead to rot.
The Anders already had vinyl wall panels installed at their food processing plants, but they decided they wanted a better design. They also wanted the benefit from our light-refracting PVC wall panels made of 100% virgin vinyl, which can save a lot of money on heating bills. This is especially true in facilities that are subject to freezing winter temperatures like those in the northern U.S.

I had FRP panels on my walls and the animals would bite the trim pieces off. I like how these panels prevent that.
I used Duramax to try out on a smaller room. I was happy with the results and plan to expand further
