FRL® Wall Protection Panels

Panolam’s FRL® Wall Protection Panels are the innovative wall and door surface solution for high-traffic environments that need to be aesthetically pleasing and easy to maintain. Since 2005, these panels have given long-lasting durability, along with unrivaled ease of application and job-site workability.

Engineered and manufactured to exacting standards, FRL decorative surfaces provide high-impact protection with a wear resistance that is 23 times higher than rigid vinyl. It is also Class A Fire Rated and substantially lower smoke and flame spread than other competitive products.

Whether it’s guarding against shopping carts in a grocery store, gurneys bursting through trauma center doors, or the exuberant play of pre-school students in their classrooms, the superior performance of Panolam’s FRL® panels will withstand it all while maintaining its pristine appearance.

In order to obtain a panel that is IMO certified for use in Marine applications, it must be specially ordered with the special product code XM8. Also, specify the following fire rated adhesive: Franklin Polymer Construction Mastic #4319. This is the only adhesive product that is noted in our warranty.

FRL can be applied directly to Armortex bullet resistant panels to provide a decorative surface with security.  To learn more about Armortex and their product offerings, please visit their website at
