Waterproof and Stain Resistant: Benefits of Sustainable Plastic Wall Panels and Ceiling Tiles

Traditional fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) ceiling tiles and wall panels have been used since the 1950’s and 1960’s in building nationwide. Innovations in new plastic ceiling tiles and non-fiberglass reinforced plastic (NRP) wall panels offer an excellent alternative. New plastic ceiling tiles are waterproof, mold-resistant, and can provide numerous sustainable design benefits. At the same time, NRP improves on the benefits of FRP such as mold, bacteria, moisture, chemical and stain resistance. It is also a sustainable product with fewer health hazards.

This course will compare materials used for ceiling tiles and wall panels, as well as describe their importance in mitigating moisture issues and designing sustainable, healthy buildings.
