You can imagine the amount of moisture that prevails inside a car wash facility. Washing involves dealing with water, soap, waxes, grease, and a lot of condensation inside. There are so many reasons why humidity exists inside a car garage where weather conditions also play a major role. Various chemicals are used in the process, and there is much spillage of water on the walls. Also, carpet cleaning is more hassle. There is a lot of dirt and grease in the carpets, which is stubborn. So, while cleaning the carpets, the interior can be filled with dirt, grime, and even odor. Post-car washing, there exists a drying process that should be done efficiently. But how will there be drying inside a humid car wash?
It is pointless to have just bare oil-painted walls and ceilings inside the facility. It makes a lot of sense to install vinyl car wash wall panels and ceiling. Why is vinyl the most suitable material and why no other materials offer the same protection as it? Vinyl panels are a modern wall and ceiling paneling solution that is ideal for humid commercial interiors. A lot of investment goes into setting up a car wash garage so why not invest a little more and use vinyl panels inside. Vinyl is a durable and waterproof material, so it has no substitute.
A lot of clients ask us whether FRP is the right solution for a car wash garage? It is very important to know why FRP is not suitable for wet or moisture-filled commercial interiors. Fiber-reinforced plastic loses its water-resistant quality to the backers. The panels are equipped with backers beneath for installation. The backers are made of OSB, Drywall, or Plywood, which attracts a lot of moisture. The humidity gets accumulated into the panels and reaches into the walls beneath. The moisture delineates the panels and also damages the walls to a great extent. This is not the case with PVC car wash wall panels, as these panels are attached directly to the studs and do not have backers.
PVC panels are 100%waterproof and can control the growth of moisture on their surface. The panels repel the growth of moisture and mold on their surface. PVC panels have a smooth surface that does not allow any moisture to sit beneath the panels.
Duramax is one of the leading manufacturers of vinyl panels in the USA. We are one of the affordable wall panel suppliers in the country. We design ASTM-certified, CFIA-certified and FDA compliant wall panels. FRP is not the ideal solution for a car wash garage. Do not be attracted by the low FRP pricing because it requires costlier maintenance. Above that, the FRP panels are not a durable option. But PVC panels initially cost a little higher, but the panels can last 40-45 years post-installation.
