When hanging objects on our panels, treat it as you would drywall. For a more secure attachment, use the wall studs as attachment point. Ohterwise, use appropriate fasteners that can carry the load.

Yes, you may provided you use an adhesive that are for plastics or pvc.
Our panels double as a ceiling replacement. Our H divider trim piece combines the panels lengths to help span across longer lengths. Just like with walls, the max span between fasteners should be no more than 24″. Horizontal strapping is not necessary unless needed.
Duramax PVC panels just need framing to attach to, they are great for any high mositure environment or space where sanitation is important.
Horizontal framing is only needed when the studs aren’t 16″ on center, or if the distance between studs is not consistent. Max span between fasteners when doing horizontal framing is 24″.
Yes, Duramax PVC panels just need to be fastened to any framing or wall with pancake head fasteners screwed into the middle of the nail flange hole to allow for expansion and contraction. Horizontal furring strapping is common when installing over concrete or brick..
Yes, Duramax PVC panels have a class A fire grade which allows it to go directly on to the stud without issues?
Our panels are made from virgin PVC, they are succeptible to expanding and contracting according to the temperature. Using adhesive would not allow the panels to shift which could cause the panels to crack and fail. We strongly recommend only using fasteners that are screwed into the middle of the nail flange hole to allow the expansion or contraction.
Vinyl Wall Paneling is a more popular choice for commercial kitchens because they do not peel and last a lifetime than FRP.
“Our panels come in 8 ft, 10 ft, 12 ft, 16 ft and 20ft.
There are PVC paint lines that support this application.
Our panels are really easy to cut and work with, most projects require some cutting of the panels. We recommend using a fine tooth blade in reverse.
Our panels are a pound per foot (8′ = 8 lbs), which makes them extremely light weight and easy to work with.
Our panels do not have any significant insulation value. Insulation behind the panels are recommended when trying to control the temperature of the environment.
Currently, we only carry matte white with a smooth finish. We are capable of manufacturing gray or tan panels for orders of 10k square ft or more.
Our tongue and groove system keeps water from going in between the panels, but we suggest using pure (off-white/clear) silicone in between panels and around trim pieces on projects where there is heavy moisture.
