Case Studies

Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia

  • Type: Hospital
  • Location: Atlanta, Georgia
  • Quantity: 527 sq. ft.

Description: When the new administration took over the aging hospital in a small town, they decided some very desperately needed upgrades were in order. To manage the budget and the overseeing of the project, the board members decided to hire Kenny.

They explained to Kenny the need for the patient’s room to be remodeled, keeping in mind the need for both cleanliness and sanitation when choosing the materials for the walls. They wanted to ensure that the remodel would hold up to health codes in these two vital areas.

Duramax vinyl panels offered both of these requirements. Constructed to top-grade, superior quality Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC, the panels were smooth and impervious to moisture. They were also manufactured with a tongue-in-groove edge so that they may fit tightly together without leaving any crevices or gaps, where moisture could collect, leading to the buildup of bacteria, mold, or mildew. With the smooth surface and absence of gaps and crevices, the panels were easy to maintain, most often only needing a hosing down. If required, a green cleaner could also be utilized, as the panels were also corrosion-resistant. This feature enabled them to hold up well to frequent cleaning and sanitation.

When looking at the cost of construction utilizing the Duramax vinyl panels, Kenny learned that he could save a significant amount in labor costs when installing the materials. Constructed of ½ inch thick PVC, the panels were lightweight and could be easily installed in a shorter amount of time than most of the competition. There was also the minimization of cost in that the panels would attach directly to the existing studs or substrate in place. This form of installation meant that there would be no extra prepping or reconstruction of the foundation walls needed.

Perhaps the main selling point for Kenny was the resistance to moisture that the vinyl panels provided. Knowing the conditions that can exist in most hospital rooms and the Emergency Room, a wall covering that stands up to moisture is an absolute must. With the reliability, trustworthiness, and quality of manufacturing that went along with the Duramax brand of vinyl panels, Kenny felt that they were the only choice, ruling out any of their competition. In Kenny's opinion, Duramax was heads above its competition—making it the only logical choice for the hospital remodel.


Hospital in Houston, Texas

  • Type: Hospital
  • Location: Houston, Texas
  • Quantity: 430 sq ft.

Description: When the new regional Hospital finally got its permits and construction grants, the only section not finalized was the Emergency Room. The administrator and overseer of the project, Caleb, had not found the proper type of wall material that he felt would do the job.

In a last-ditch effort to get the material for the walls finalized, he googled a few keywords. That is when he learned of Duramax vinyl panels. After a precursory look at the information, Caleb felt he might just have found what the project needed.

The was plenty of information on the material, which gave Caleb a little more incentive to look further into the company. When he did, he was delighted with what he saw, gathered the necessary details, and presented them to the construction panel of the hospital.

Duramax vinyl panels, Caleb learned, were constructed of top quality, superior Polyvinyl Chloride, or PVC. Unlike much of their competition, the vinyl panels did not contain a backer board of any type, that would only prove to absorb and hold moisture—something that would not work in an ER setting.

The PVC material that the panels were constructed from created a smooth, moisture-resistant surface. With the panels interlocking together in a tongue-in-groove fashion, there was also the lack of crevices or nook and crannies for the buildup of moisture leading to bacteria, molds, and mildew. With their moisture-resistant construction, Caleb learned that the vinyl panels were easy to maintain—most times by hosing down with water or adding a green cleaner if needed. Because they are chemical resistant and resistant to corrosion, frequent cleaning would not become an issue.

From further research, Caleb found that installing the vinyl panels would help curtail some of the construction costs. with the panels being constructed of lightweight ½ inch thick PVC, the vinyl panels would be quick and easy to install and could be done with minimal manpower and time. Plus, there was the added advantage that the panels would attach to the studding of the substrate, not needing any additional prepping or foundation material. Caleb was happy with the fact that, once again, they were impervious to moisture. With the conditions that existed in most any Emergency Room, the moisture resistance was a big plus for his considering the panels in the first place.

Finally, he felt that, in the long run, choosing to go with Duramax vinyl panels would more than pay for themselves over time. With their reliability, trustworthiness, and quality of construction, Caleb felt that Duramax was far above their competition.
