The benefits of vinyl panels discussed – Duramax offering ASTM certified and FDA compliant panels

19 November, 2020

This blog will discuss why FRP is not suitable for commercial interiors and why you must install vinyl wall panels. There are so many industry owners who are not content with the non-waterproof nature of FRP panels. They complain of the panels not being long-lasting and not being able to control the dampness inside. 



Customers spend a lot of money installing FRP panels, but within a few years, they tend to delaminate and peel off. Customers have been calling Duramax expecting vinyl panels would be a true alternative as we commit. So, if you are tired of dealing with FRP panels’ drawbacks, it’s time to rethink installing a new wall panel solution. 

Why are vinyl panels preferred?

Wall paneling is an improvement project that involves many costs, and it isn’t easy to reinvest unless direly required. FRP is a popular wall paneling solution, but vinyl is now even more popular because it can fulfill the drawbacks that other wall panels possess. Vinyl panels are ruling and are offering a more challenging competition. 

The first area where FRP loses the battle is that PVC panels are 100% waterproof. It does not absorb any moisture keeping the commercial interior completely free from moisture and dampness. This is the reason why PVC wall panels installed on the walls and ceiling can keep the interior free from mold growth, bacteria, and mildew. 

The uses of vinyl panels: 

Duramax vinyl panels are being effectively used in various commercial setups, including commercial kitchens, car washes, restaurants, food processing, horse stables, meat processing, dairy farms, fisheries, and more. But here, we will discuss how our panel is used in hydroponics farming. 

Taking care of the hydroponics farming facility interior:

Hydroponics farming or indoor farming is now a rising trend; many people have started this form of farming. You need to create the right kind of setup and create the right environment for continuing this form of agriculture. Indoor farming setups have a lot of moisture accumulation, so you need to take special care of the walls, ceiling, and the entire interior. You need to install a waterproof vinyl panel on the walls and ceiling of your hydroponics farming facility. Any bacterial growth can hamper the healthy growth of indoor crops.
