Robert is an industrial contractor based north of the U.S. border in Canada. Since he has clients on both sides of the line, his company faces the ongoing challenge of adhering to two sets of government regulations, not to mention the individual states and provinces found in each country. A lot of Robert’s job is simply understanding how to build a facility that can withstand the rigors of whichever industry it serves. With the case of meat packing, for instance, there are considerations for cleanliness and maintaining a hygienic environment which go beyond just good organization. His clients must see the results not only from the eye test, but the results of inspections, both self-imposed and those imposed by government health workers.
In his latest job, Robert was tasked with building a meat-packing facility in Ontario from the ground up. Logistically, this was no different from upgrading an old facility in terms of how he addressed the walls, minus the removal of the previous materials before you can install the new ones. Fortunately, Robert had already used Duramax PVC wall panels many times before in previous jobs, so he had already sold his client on its benefits by the time we came in. We sent samples upon request nonetheless, and this was enough to seal the deal.
Robert knows that PVC (vinyl) panels are the only wall material that can promise 100% waterproof surface, which is ideal for a situation where a high volume of fluids pass. The assurances that vinyl doesn’t allow for bacterial growth is more than just a bonus for a meatpacking plant, it’s a requirement. Any sign of spoiling in one batch of meat could spell disaster for a meatpacking operation, affecting their reputation even if they recover from losses. The client was pleased that Robert could offer freedom from contamination long-term, especially since PVC wall panels don’t degrade like standard materials such as concrete or fiberglass. After Rober completed another successful build, the plant is up and running, shipping packaged beef and chicken to households throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Donovan runs a long-term meat storage and packing facility in San Antonio, Texas. His business started the same as many in the meatpacking industry, as an offshoot of cattle farming which eventually became a full-time operation. After a decade of running the cattle ranch and the facility, Donovan decided the cost of upkeep and the level of attention required by the cows was cutting into the potential of his meatpacking operation. He concluded that the packaging plant was better suited for the future, since more and more people were going away from eating meat, and it could also be used to package meat substitutes. He sold the farm for a sizable seven-figure sum, using the money to upgrade his meatpacking plants, and eventually, open new ones.
The first task was to upgrade the current facility to cut out extra expenses and potential exposure to bacteria. After Donovan completed the external upgrade like a new roof and exterior, he went about fixing up the interior. Specifically, he wanted a way to protect the wooden frames of the building from exposure to the damp heat produced inside the facility to avoid moisture damage. He also wanted to create an environment that prevented the growth of bacteria, since contamination is a big concern for any business that handles animal products. This is where Duramax PVC wall panels provided the specifications needed to satisfy both requirements.
We covered Donovan’s 12,000 square-foot meat processing plant with vinyl wall panels, as well as the length of the ceiling for good measure. The facility is now covered in 100% waterproof vinyl, which doesn’t allow water to accumulate in the wood beneath. Duramax PVC wall panels also prevent bacteria from forming on the surface, one of the key attributes for a clean meatpacking facility. Donovan was so pleased with the seal created by vinyl’s seamless installation that he made another order for the extension on his facility, which will be built next year.

We had FRP in our kitchen before and the stains would never come off. Love the new look of these panels
Our daily cleanup has been easier knowing these panels can withstand the water pressure without and leaks

We were going go with tile, but I had a bad back and decided to use lighter materials and was very happy with the results
