Vinyl panels are gaining tons of exposure in the facilities management industry as an innovative water-resistant walling solution. Facilities that have food processing, animal habitats, indoor growing, or clean rooms require an easy-to-clean, anti-bacterial wall and ceiling solution to keep up with hygiene standards. Facilities with a highly humid environment may have walls and ceilings that are susceptible to mold.
Mold can be dangerous to workers, product, animals, and potentially disastrous to the business if left unchecked. Usually forming in hidden areas, mold spreads behind the walls and through the ventilation before the problem is large enough to be discovered. What this means is that some businesses might have to shut down until the mold is taken care of.
The standard solution today involves FRP panels that are water resistant, glued onto a wooden substrate that is still vulnerable to mold. This unsatisfying solution has been the only option for the past few decades. Luckily Duramax Trusscore panels were innovated specifically for this issue. Designed to improve every aspect of FRP, here are some top reasons why Duramax Vinyl Panels are gaining popularity:
Virtually no maintenance – With the seamless smooth surface and durability, duramax panels do not attract dirt, bacteria, or mold. In fact, cleaning can easily be done with a high powered hose. Typically other panels like FRP have rough surfaces and trim between each panel; this can cause bacteria to hide in the crevices. After a while, unsightly stains or mold can form.
Built-in Backer – Vinyl Panels are durable and thick. Attached directly to the stud, these panels provide a complete walling solution. Other solutions require a backer or OSB before applying a thin sheet as the walling.
Quality tests and verified – Duramax panels not only reach standard requirements but excel. We are confident that our product is the best solution and provide a lifetime warranty. Here are some of the tests we publicize on our site:
