Dairy vinyl panels always have an extra edge over FRP panels

03 June, 2021

Dairy products need a dry and cold environment to stay fresh for the longest time. Healthy dairy animals also need to stay in a clean environment. Dehumidification is a good option, but another good way to control moisture in the dairy parlors is wall paneling. The dairy vinyl panels are the most preferred choice among American dairy businesses as they are 100% waterproof and resistant to bacteria, molds and microbes. Duramax vinyl walls have an extra edge above the ordinary FRP panels.

100% water resistant robust wall panels – PVC leads the way

Although many dairy businesses have installed FRP panels in the past, they soon switched over to PVC panels. Ever wondered why? It’s because PVC panels are 100% waterproof and do not absorb any liquids keeping the walls dry and clean. FRP wall panels with wooden backers slowly absorb water from the surroundings and with time, you will find FRP panels cracking, peeling off and delaminating. Also, FRP panels would ask for constant repairs and replacements. On the other hand, dairy vinyl panels are strong, sturdy and water-resistant wall panels. Vinyl panels from Duramax need little maintenance and can last for 40 years or more.


Easy to install and low maintenance 

The Duramax PVC kit comes with a DIY installation guide. You don’t need to purchase any extra installation material. Installing dairy vinyl panels is easier as it is a one-person job that can easily be completed within a few hours. The seamless installation of PVC panels with studs and hidden fasteners ensures a smooth finishing. With no visible hardware, the smooth wall panels do not allow dirt, debris, or bacteria to hide around the corners. Once you install PVC panels, you can skip cleaning the walls once in a while. Switching over to Duramax PVC panels is an ideal choice because it’s simple to install. Dairy FRP panels are not easy to install. You need plywood wooden backers, strong adhesives and high-quality mounted rivets along with skilled workers to install FRP wallboard. Installing FRP panels is a huge task and would take a lot of time. 

Vinyl panels do not need regular maintenance. Occasionally wipe off the panels with a damp cloth to remove stains. The maintenance is simple and hassle-free. However, the FRP wallboard is cumbersome to clean. Cleaning FRP wall panels is hectic as you need to be careful not to disturb the rivets, adhesives, or touch the wooden backers. If FRP wallboard placement gets disturbed, you need to call back the professionals for reinstallation. With Duramax PVC panels, you can quickly wipe off the wall panels without hassles.

PVC panels are durable and cost-effective (for the long run)

The dairy vinyl panels have a reputation for lasting for years together with very little maintenance. However, no matter how much you maintain FRP panels, the panels will start to peel off and delaminate after a few years. Duramax PVC panels are long-lasting and highly durable. The vinyl panels are cost-effective as you do not need to invest in the maintenance of PVC panels. PVC is a one-time investment that lasts for years. Also, there is no money invested in installation materials and skilled laborers.
