Fiberglass Wall Panels – Tips To Installing Frp-cashmere mafia

Business Hello, my name is Bruce Dixon and I’m with Specialized Building Systems and I’m here to talk today about some of the various applications of installing fiberglass wall panels on a wall surface. A couples things that are very important: the wall panels need to be climatized to the condition that they will be utilized when the building is being operated. In other words, if it’s middle of winter (say 45 degrees) you need to make sure you leave at least an eighth of an inch gap around the trim. And the fiberglass wall panel, whether it’s a divider bar, inside-outside corners, a J-mold, do not put the FRP panel tight to the floor. Leave the fiberglass wall panel a 1/4 to 1/2-inch off the floor and leave room at the ceiling because when that room operational it’s going to be much warmer and this is a plastic panel so it will grow. Also, if you’re going to install a fiberglass wall panel over an existing block wall, maybe there is paint on the wall. It’s not always wise to use adhesives since you may not know how well that adhesive will bond to the existing wall. So in lieu of adhesives you can use plastic anchors. The plastic anchors are color matched to match the fiberglass wall panel. Generally, you’re going to have the plastic anchors approximately an inch or two from the edges and then every sixteen inches on center, both width-wise and up the fiberglass wall panel. And make sure that you oversize the holes; these plastic anchors are approximately 1/4 inch in diameter so a 3/8th’s inch hole in the FRP panel will be sufficient. The hole into the wall surface, whether it’s block or drywall, should be a quarter of an inch that way it allows some movement for the fiberglass wall panel. Always remember this is a plastic panel and if there’s any temperature changes the FRP panel will expand and contract depending on the temperature changes that occurs.
