Duramax Panels The Choice For Emergency Shelters

27 July, 2021

Emergency shelters are employed for a multitude of needs and uses.  Commonly thought of for their use in homeless shelters, they are also employed for various other uses.  Duramax panels have seen growing use in the last year, as they were implemented in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Duramax panels are both efficient and straightforward for the construction of emergency shelters due to their direct installation nature.  The walls require less material and are all-around easier to install.  With their lighter weight, the panels are great when in need of a hygienic space to use.

The panels feature a property that makes them anti-microbial and arrives ready to assemble.  The installation process itself is simple, which guarantees a quick setup with little to no debris to clean up afterward.  Depending on how you choose to make use of your internal space, the possibilities are endless.


When choosing to use Duramax panels, you will have the knowledge that you are making a one-time investment. Constructed of PVC-grade vinyl, the panels are durable and long-lasting.  Attaching the panels to one another is simple, as they are engineered with pre-punched nail flanges as well as hidden fasteners.  This means of construction will give the panel a more appealing appearance.

Duramax panels require little to no maintenance, as they are easy to clean and maintain. The panels are manufactured with the ability to be utilized in those interiors prone to dampness and humidity. With their smooth surface, when using the panels in emergency shelters, there is no need to worry about the build-up of mildew, mold, or bacteria, as the panels are resistant to such problems.

Duramax panels give you the peace of mind of never needing to replace your walls again. When constructing the modules to your customization, they will offer the option of being replicable as well as interchangeable.

If you are considering the possibility of using another type of construction, such as FRP, there are plenty of reasons why vinyl is a superior choice.  If you are worried about any possibility of humidity affecting any area of your emergency shelter, then vinyl PVC is the route to take.  FRP is not made to hold up to those conditions that introduce moisture for any amount of time, whereas Duramax panels are made to last the test of time.

FRP also makes use of backers which are known to absorb moisture, which in turn will result in delamination in a short amount of time.  On the other hand, Duramax panels do not have backers, so there will be no resulting moisture to worry about.

What it comes down to is that Duramax panels are the perfect choice for ease and speed of construction, as well as flexibility and durability, when needing an emergency shelter.
