    Product Limitations

    1. Temperature variation or high ambient temperature when the product is in use. A 4' wide panel will move .018" (.45mm ) with each 10° F change in temperature.
    2. Class C flame spread and less than 450 smoke (ASTM E-84). This is adequate for most environments.
    3. This product is not structural.
    4. These products are designed for interior use only.

    Key Variables to Consider in Selecting the Right Product

    1. Appearance. The available textures give a variety of looks, from a smooth "painted" look to a heavily textured "industrial" appearance.
    2. Expected abuse. Heavier textures hide marring. Thicker sheets resist impact.
    3. Temperature range. If the temperature variations will exceed 20° F, select one of our pre-laminated products.
    4. Operating temperatures. Our panels are not recommended for environments when the ambient temperature exceeds 110° F.
