Joliet, IL (PRWEB) October 06, 2011
Crane Composites, Inc., an American manufacturer of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) wall panels has expanded their Innovative Finishes line of architectural panels with a new collection of over 20 sophisticated colors and textures called DESIGNS.
Crane Composites FRP panels provide building owners and managers with the durability, cleanliness and moisture resistance needed in high-traffic areas such as schools, cafeterias, restaurants, retail and grocery, hospitals and more.
“The DESIGNS collection was created in response to the marketplace demand from architects and interior designers wanting a wider range of FRP panels in elegant and restful color tones and organic textures”, according to Kelly Erdmann, Vice President of Building Products at Crane.
Bamboo, Canvas, Terrazzo, Timber, and Stone are but a few selections in the line, all with complementary moldings for seamless and moisture-resistant installations. Other naturalistic textures such as linen and sandstone textures are available in the Innovative Finishes line.
As with all of the Innovative Finishes line of products, the DESIGNS collection is GREENGUARD certified, meaning it meets or exceeds the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) Indoor Air Quality Certification Program, and the even more stringent requirements of the GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification Program.
