FRP Sheets

Why FRP Wall Panels Are a Smart Choice Over Traditional Wall Materials

FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) hit the market with many possibilities that were not attainable with older materials. FRP wall panels are easy to work with, and the durability is unmatched compared to other materials, such as steel or wood which is prone to mould and mildew growth.

Today, FRP panels are in high demand and popular among architects, builders, and designers as they can be used in areas that require high resistance to moisture, chemicals, and impact, as well as places that are prone to damage from regular cleaning. They are also ideas for areas where hygiene is important such as commercial kitchens, hospitals, schools, classrooms, and restrooms.

What’s more? Aside from the durability and ease of installation, FRP sheets come in different colours, finishes, thicknesses, or fire ratings, allowing architects and builders to pick the right option without breaking a sweat.


FRP is one of the strongest materials ever made, and this is its most sought-after quality. Various testing has proven that FRP panels can last well over 50 years. Read that again! No other strengthening material can extend the life of buildings and structures as it does, making it the go-to material for architects and builders to strengthen the life of old buildings and reinforce new ones.

FRP wall panels can also resist impact, scratches, and stains because the surface is coated with gel, giving it a hard finish. FRP contains a polymer matrix and a fiber; this polymer matrix makes it waterproof. All these contribute to its durability, making it ideal for high-traffic areas or harsh environments such as schools, gyms, restaurants, building exits, etc., or areas where it can be predisposed to chemicals and other substances. FRP will maintain its shape and stability in the face of heavy handling and usage.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

FRP panels have a smooth surface, which makes them easy to clean and maintain. You typically need a soft brush and a mild cleaner to clean the surface in a circular motion, and that’s it! FRP panels can withstand repeated cleaning without having a serious impact. Just ensure you follow the manufacturer’s directions, and you are good. Sponges and hard brushes are not recommended because FRP panels have a smooth surface, and hard brushes will scratch it.


FRP sheets are a cost-effective material when compared to other strengthening materials like steel. This may surprise many, especially when considering the initial cost of steel. Though steel has a lower initial cost, its high installation and maintenance, in the long run, makes FRP a better option. FRP can be more expensive than steel, but it requires low installation costs and needs little maintenance.

Wood is also cheaper than FRP panels, but it is prone to degradation, deterioration, and insect damage in the long run. The only material with a similar cost to FRP is aluminum but it does not have the outstanding properties that FRP boasts.

Versatile and Highly Flexible

One of the major benefits of FRP wall panels is their flexibility, making them perfect for different designs. FRP wall panels also come in different colours, textures, and finishes, making them ideal for any design you choose. And, of course, you can even make your FRP panels look to imitate wood or stone; the best thing is that this can be done within hours.

Easy to Install

FRP panels are not only strong, but they are also incredibly lightweight. FRP panels weigh about two-thirds less than aluminum and only a quarter as much as steel, which helps to reduce their installation and maintenance costs because light materials only cost a fraction of the installation and maintenance costs of heavy materials.

They can be easily installed on walls with simple tools such as laminate rollers, adhesives, or fasteners on different types of walls, such as drywalls, plywood, wall tiles, concrete block, and even existing walls which it is the most sought-after material by builders and contractors for renovation projects.


FRP panels have a lower environmental impact compared to traditional materials such as concrete, aluminum, and steel. FRP composite manufacturing requires lower energy requirements and results in lower greenhouse gas production. Did you know that FRP Panels can be recycled? Recycling FRP composites is even more environmentally friendly than steel and aluminum because it consumes less energy.

There are different methods of recycling FRP. The most popular method is mechanical recycling which involves grinding or shredding the FRP panels into small pieces and then using it to make new composite materials. The chemical recycling method involves using chemical processes to break down the FRP panels into its raw materials to create new products
