The HardStop® Difference

When Formica Group launched HardStop® Decorative Protection Panels, we did so with an eye towards offering a solution that was unmatched in the wall protection industry. While competitive products offer some of the benefits of HardStop® Panels, there is really nothing that can compete with all the features of HardStop.

Consider all these features and benefits available with HardStop® Panels:

High impact resistance
The most important thing a wall protection panel can do is simply protect the wall. Unlike traditional laminate, HardStop® Panels contain a fiberglass core for added strength and durability that will stand up to the rigors of demanding commercial environments.

Class A fire rating
The fiberglass core also helps give HardStop® its class A fire rating, which makes it ideal for elevators, healthcare, education and other settings where class A fire rated materials are prevalent.

Scratch, stain and water resistance
HardStop® Panels have the same surface as HPL, giving it the same performance qualities. When paired with the fiberglass core, it creates a unique surface that is perfect for busy corridors, restrooms, and other highly trafficked areas.

Ease of maintenance
HardStop® Panels are easily maintained and can be cleaned with mild dish soap and a soft sponge or cloth.

Ease of installation
Another area where HardStop® Panels really stand out is their ease of installation. Because they are adhered to drywall, there’s very little prep work needed and they are suitable for many different settings.

Available in a full range of Formica® Brand colors
HardStop® Panels are available in most Formica® Brand colors, and since all our products are color coordinated, you can be assured that HardStop® Panels will pair perfectly with other Formica® Brand products specified in your next project!

When it comes to wall protection, HardStop® Decorative Protection Panels check all the boxes.
