GRP vs Metallic | The Advantages of MRC GRP Cleanroom Systems
MRC designed the original GRP panelling system and, through a constant drive to innovate, have boasted the most advanced system on the market since 1981. The panel manufacturing technique, coupled with the GRP formulation and specification, provides an impervious smooth surface which is inherently strong, resistant to damage and chemical attack. Unlike other construction materials, the MRC panel does not rely on a thin surface coating to provide the required cleanroom surface finish.
Above are the key issues normally raised during the normal technical review of bids and systems. There are many other considerations which I can include in this Comparison which will also show the GRP’s superiority over the metallic system. For example
The ability to provide integral low level extract
Its non sparking properties in areas of low humidity.
Its class O rating for spread of flame (BS476 parts 6 and 7)
Its ability to contain within it thickness many services, mezzanine columns etc leaving the cleanroom wall free from surface fixed services.
The GRP doors are particularly important because in metallic systems the doors tend to be the first thing to fail.
The GRP because it is moulded and is free from crevices is easier to clean and to keep clean.
Because of its many features the GRP gets through validation tests faster than any other system.
