Use this 3-part SimpleSpecs™ template to specify prefinished glass fiber-reinforced plastic wall panels (GFRP), often referred to as FRP wall panels for interior locations.
Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) wall panels are a type of composite material that consists of glass fibers embedded in a plastic matrix. They are commonly used as an alternative to traditional building materials such as wood, metal, or concrete in various construction applications.
GFRP wall panels are known for their high strength-to-weight ratio, durability, and resistance to moisture, fire, and impact. They are also lightweight and easy to install, which can help to reduce labor costs.
GFRP wall panels are commonly used in various construction applications, such as commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. Also, to provide physical protection and washability in rooms such as commercial kitchens and laundries, toilet rooms, and janitor closets.
They are also used for cladding, partitions, and ceilings. In addition, GFRP wall panels can also be used in cleanrooms, laboratories, and hospitals as they are non-toxic, chemical resistant, and easy to clean.
For building owners, GFRP wall panels offer several advantages. More cost-effective than traditional building materials, their durability and resistance to moisture and fire can help reduce maintenance costs over the long term. They also have high insulation properties, which can help in energy savings.
Additionally, GFRP wall panels can be used in interior and exterior applications, providing various design options and aesthetic benefits.
These panels can be USDA approved for use in food preparation and handling areas.
