FRP panels peeling and cracking? Upgrade to PVC panels

18 January, 2023

Are you worried about the wall and ceiling covering you are going to install after the FRP panels have peeled away? Humid walls and ceiling require a special covering. PVC panels are the most remarkable invention in the market. There are different types of wall covering like tiles, drywall, plywood, Mylar and FRP. None of them are as aesthetic as PVC panels. They also lack moisture-control features. If you have FRP Panels, it is time to switch to vinyl.

Easy to clean and washing is possible

The panels are low maintenance. They do not attract dirt and impurities on their sleek surface. Occasional wiping the boards with a cloth and a gentle cleanser is good. We do not recommend using any bleaches, acids, or abrasives. Now, if the surface needs frequent washing, you can do so without worrying about moisture seepage and damage. FRP panels need heavy cleaning and a complex maintenance routine. They have a rough texture that attracts impurities and breeding mold. Do not use water to wipe and you cannot wash the FRP panels because it will make the walls and ceiling humid.

Do not worry about the installation

Vinyl panel installation does not even take a day. They are installed in just 7 to 8 hours. So, you probably do not lose business for days but maybe only for a day. One contractor can install the panels so there are no additional labor charges. The vinyl boards have an interlocking pattern in the form of grooves and tongues that work together to make the process easier. The panels can be reused several times. The panels are cut to shape and made ready for the installation. The PVC panels are attached to the studs with screws and fasteners that are not made visible to maintain the look of the panels.

Complex FRP installation

We have heard stories from various clients about the tedious and expensive FRP panel installation. Also, about how they feel bad about the quickly damaged panels. More than two contractors are needed to install FRP panels. You need to purchase quite a few additional materials for the complete installation process. So, both require spending more money compared to PVC panel installation. You spend a good amount but the panels do not last long, they remain on the walls for a maximum of 20-25 years. This is one of the biggest cons of choosing FRP panels in areas where moisture prevails. PVC panels are carefree and they last for 100 years after installation.

Curbing humidity by installing PVC panels

The effects of accumulating humidity can be extremely harmful for any commercial interior. It can dampen the interior damaging the walls and ceiling. The interior environment plays a big role in ensuring a hygienic interior. Excess dampness can give birth to mold and mildew growth. To control the effects of humidity, we suggest covering the walls and ceiling with nothing else but PVC panels. Duramax panels are 100% water-resistant. They prevent any amount of moisture from invading the walls and ceiling. PVC sheets have antibacterial covering that prevent the growth of mold.

White vinyl panels – save your energy bills

Duramax’s PVC sheets are available in white color. But we also manufacture grey boards upon receiving bulk orders. You can add color using vinyl-grade interior paint to color the PVC boards. FRP panels are colorful but they last for a short span of time as it fades away in no time. White vinyl sheets offer a spacious look and a flawless interior. PVC panels are light-reflective. The panels equally distribute the reflected light evenly inside the space. You can install a lesser number of LED lights for sufficient light. You can save on your monthly energy bills.  

PVC panels gives a competitive edge

We suggest not to install FRP sheets for all good and ignore the initially low FRP pricing. They are gradually becoming obsolete due to the various downsides. This is the reason for the growing popularity of PVC panels. Now there is no bothering about peeling off and delamination. Duramax’s premium wall panels never need replacing. Vinyl panels are water-resistant so they are suitable for wet and moisture-filled environments. FRP boards should be installed in areas where there is no humidity.
