Advanced Phenolic Material
Independent lab testing shows phenolic core partitions are among the most durable money can buy. Scratches, dents, impacts, you name it: phenolic outshines in every category.
Independent lab tests show the outstanding durability of phenolic toilet partitions when faced with vandalism, blunt force and fire.
Phenolic has top tier resilience against scratches, dents and graffiti. The material has passed with flying colors when put through the ringer by ASTM-compliant tests at an independent laboratory.
When it comes to scratch resistance, phenolic is as good as it gets, with the material effectively resisting up to 22 lbs of weight on a pointed scraper that was drawn along the surface.
In lab tests, it took over 168″ inch-lbs of impact force before visible damage occurred. In another test, a phenolic partition’s door was tested with the impact of a 180lb person ramming it at full run with no significant damage occurring. It’s no surprise they come with a manufacturer 25 year warranty.
ASTM E 84-01 “Test for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials” analyzed the results of a gas-fed flame source applied to a phenolic panel. This ASTM standard is required by the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code® and International Building Code® for classification of Interior Wall or Ceiling Finish.
