In this post, we'll introduce you to the basics of what these panels are, how they perform and similar information.

Fiberglass Reinforced Laminated Panels in HospitalFiberglass reinforced panels work well in a range of situations. They are as durable as other options and provide superior scratch resistance and strength. In fact, these panels have strength the same as up to five times the same weight of steel, providing you with lightweight but strong surfaces. Unlike steel or other metal surfaces, these panels won't corrode or rust, but will simply remain strong in a wide range of less than ideal environments. They're also very resistant to shattering from heavy impacts. Though basic version of fiberglass-reinforced plastics have been in use for over six decades, the use of this material in building panels is still relatively new.

They have superior durability in atmospheres where regular commercial and educational settings, as they are easy to clean and resistant to scratches and abrasion. The panels also work well in restrooms, locker rooms, kitchens, dining rooms and cooling towers, due to their durability and strength. They withstand bleaching, chemicals and other sanitation materials. The panels can hold up very well against pressure washing and even the vapor permeability of steam cleaning. They are also mold and stain resistant, making them hold up very well in less than ideal circumstances.

They don't require any special tools or skills and can be installed using a fine-toothed saw, a carbide drill bit, a trowel in a size recommended by the panel manufacturer and a laminate roller to ensure good adhesion. They can be installed using adhesive over wood, drywall, concrete, concrete block, plastics and similar porous materials. The panels can also be used in retrofit situations, making them a good choice to install over new or old drywall. This means if your new facility isn't holding up to expectations, retrofitting it with fiberglass reinforced panels can provide the durability needed without disrupting your operations any more than necessary.

The panels are available in a wide rainbow of colors and finishes, from completely smooth to pebbled textures that break up boring lines. They're also available in a wide range of sizes and thicknesses, allowing you to only cover what is needed while minimizing seams and transitions. The fiberglass reinforced panels can be manufactured with a standard matrix or one that provides additional fire retardant properties or resistance to breakdown in ultraviolet light into your wall system. The hard surface can be manufactured to meet USDA and health department requirements for non-porous surfaces.
