The HardStop® Difference

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.
