FRP Panels have taken a backseat – PVC panels are a modern invention

13 September, 2022

FRP wall panels are obsolete now. PVC panels have grabbed the market due to the various advantages. Vinyl panels are being largely used in the commercial sector mainly for covering damp walls and ceiling. There are many companies in the USA that manufacture vinyl panels. Choose a reliable company for premium vinyl sheets as it is going to be a lifetime investment. There is a lot to know about PVC boards before you make an investment.

Simple cleaning – PVC panels

Vinyl sheets can be washed anytime because there is no water seepage inside them. Water cleans the panels and slips off the surface keeping them dry. PVC panels also do not require regular complex cleaning so there is no much expenses involved. Wipe the panels with a soft damp cloth and a mild cleaning agent. We recommend not using harsh chemicals, abrasives, bleaches or acids. PVC panels have a very smooth surface that does not attract impurities or other microorganisms. FRP wall panels are difficult to clean because they have a rough surface that attracts a lot of impurities.

Panels installed in a day – simple and quick

The PVC panels have ½ inch thickness which is considered ideal for protecting the inner walls and ceiling. The length of the panels can be customized according to requirement but the width is 16 inches fixed. The installation process is very simple and does not involve much time or hassle. A single local contractor can install the panels inside a unit within 7 to 8 hours. Once installed, the vinyl sheets can be reused several times. This is why it is considered as a long-term investment.

The PVC sheets are fixed to the studs with the help of concealed screws. These sheets do not have backers so there is no worrying about moisture seepage into the walls and ceiling. On the other hand, FRP panels are difficult to install and require more than one contractor to install the panels. They have backers beneath the surface that attract moisture and dampness into the panels. The moisture slowly creeps into the FRP board and reaches the walls and ceiling. 

The light-reflective properties of PVC panels

Vinyl panels have light-reflective properties. These sheets can equally distribute the total amount of the light that reflects. The monthly energy bills are reduced to an extent and it is considered savings. FRP panels do not offer savings at all, instead you will have to spend frequently for maintenance.

White color PVC panels

Vinyl panels are installed in industries including car washes, dairy farms, poultries, restaurants, commercial kitchens, restaurants, breweries, stables, shipping containers, fisheries, warehouses etc. The sheets are available in only white shade. We do not manufacture colorful panels. FRP panels are attractive to look at because they are available in various colors but they tend to fade off easily. White color does not turn yellowish or get tarnished. Had it been any other wall and ceiling covering material, the white would not remain clear white. White color panels make your interior look well-lit and spacious. PVC panels make the interior look hygienic.

PVC Panels – a lifetime solution for damp walls

You cannot rely on FRP wall panels even if they are available for $70. FRP sheets are a temporary solution for humid commercial interiors. The installation charges are pretty high which is equal to the cost of the panels. The total comes to $141.50 which is really very high because it is not worth paying such a big amount for panels that require frequent repairs. PVC panels are a little expensive initially, the are available for $83.58 but the total cost of the panels along with the installation comes to only $88.58. The charges for installing this long-term solution is only $5. Who would not choose to install PVC panels?
