How to choose the proper commercial wall covering
What types of things do you consider when you start a new construction project? Your options are normally controlled by personal taste, regulations, budget and priorities.
In the case of kitchens, food processing areas, and areas where food contact can occur, there have been almost no choice for an approved wall covering. The most common durable commercial wall covering has been FRP Panels. The common FRP or Fiberglass Panel (Marlite) material is a textured glossy panel made of fiberglass and polyester resin. These panels are not considered FDA Approved. This material is heavy and generally requires a two man team to install.
Trusscore replaces FRP For FDA Applications
The new MSW Trusscore PVC Wall Panels are FDA Approved, and also carry a Class ‘A’ Fire rating as per the ASTM-E-84E (Flame Spread + 25). The Trusscore panels are light weight and very easy to install, a 20 Foot length of the Trusscore can be handled by one installer. These interlocking glossy white panels slide together in a ‘tongue and groove’ style method, much like laminate flooring. They are produced in a range of lengths from 8 foot to 20 foot long to match your installation needs.
Trusscore is a unique material for construction installation. It is designed to install right over existing wall materials or right onto the 16” spaced studs. Several profile extrusions are made to fit these panels, and make corners, bottom and top channels and splicing a breeze. Because these panels are produced from PVC or Rigid Vinyl, they are tough and impact resistant.
The common installation is vertically for interior walls, but it installs just as well for ceiling installations. Because of the high strength to weight ratio these panels are easy to install without sagging or warp.
Waterproof, Mold and Mildew Resistant
Trusscore is produced from 100% Virgin PVC, making it moisture and chemical resistant. Because of these properties, the Trusscore will not mold or mildew even in moist and warm environments. The ‘Truss’ style cross-section makes these panels extremely strong for years of maintenance free use. The surface is resistant to scratches, dents and cannot delaminate. The Trusscore panels carry a 10 year product warranty.
