Description FRP Clad Foam Advantage
As you evaluate our products please be aware of some of the following features and benefits offered by utilizing FRP Clad Foam in the construction of our custom trailers. We are pleased to provide a sample of our wall material at your request.
FRP Clad Foam Description: These composite wall panels consist of 1” thick polyisocyanurate foam core bonded to interior and exterior skins consisting of heavy fiberglass cloth/resin matrix bonded to marine grade plywood cores. Exterior finish is bright white gel-coat, interior in off-white resin coat or gel-coat. (Other colors are available) Clad Foam panels utilize vertical stiffeners 24” on center as standard. All components of the wall structure are permanently bonded together, no fasteners, no seams.
FRP Clad Foam Advantages Include:
- Superior impact and damage resistance: FRP panels will withstand impacts and abrasion from stones, tree branches, road debris and workers that would leave aluminum skin over frame trailers with dents holes and tears in the skin
- Wall surfaces do not rust, corrode, fade or peel
- Superior noise and thermal insulation values
- Seamless and fastener-free interior and exterior wall surfaces are easy to clean and maintain
- Smooth wall surfaces easily accept graphics and paint
- Minor damage is easily repaired using standard fiberglass fillers and readily available fiberglass/resin materials
- Wall panels are mechanically fastened & bonded to structural and extruded (Not stamped) aluminum corners and rails
Extruded Aluminum Advantages Include:
- Rust proof and corrosion resistant, no paint to peel or chip
- Extruded aluminum corners and rails offer superior impact and damage resistance when compared with bent .050 aluminum used on many aluminum skin or “Filon” fiberglass over frame trailers
- Bonded FRP/aluminum construction results in a strong, rigid trailer. Aluminum skin over frame trailers are very flexible and will loosen fasteners and components over time
