Car Washes

Chem-Pruf doors are perfect for car washes. A steel or hollow metal door rusts from the inside out. Once rust appears the interior of the door has already be severly compromised affecting the overall structural integrity. A Chem-Pruf fiberglass door will never rust and can withstand the water and chemicals found in car wash facilities.

Food Processing

When it comes to Food Processing Facilities, cleanability is by far one of the most important aspects. Doors that offer seamless construction that eliminate crevices where germs and bacteria can inhabit are essential. Materials and design features that resists rust and can stand up to daily washdowns and harsh chemicals are strongly desired in food processing facilities. Chem-Pruf corrosion resistant fiberglass doors are the number one choice over inferior products. Galvanized metal doors, although sometimes used, are not desirable due to their short lifespan and tendency to begin rusting internally almost immediately.

A few examples of Food Processing Facilities include:

  • Milk Processing Facilities
  • Cheese Manufacturing Plants
  • Dairy Operations
  • Meat & Poultry Processing Facilities
  • Food Warehouses & Distribution Centers
  • Beverage Manufacturing & Bottling Plants
  • Food Production & Packaging Plants

Why Chem-Pruf FRP Doors &Products?

  • Seamless Construction – eliminates bacteria build up
  • “Clean Look” is desirable in Food Manufacturing Facilities
  • Finish stands up to harsh chemicals used in daily wash downs
  • FDA/USDA accepted

Pulp & Paper Industry

The pulp and paper industry comprises manufacturing enterprises that convert cellulose fiber into a wide variety of pulps, papers and paperboards. A large percentage of their fiber comes from wood, the balance from wastepaper and a very small quantity of cotton rags or linen. Wood is reduced to fiber by a process including heat, high humidity and corrosive chemicals. The fibers are then mixed with water, adhering to one another as the water is removed by pressure and heat. The humidity and chemicals introduced into the atmosphere through this process can quickly turn a steel door in a pile of rust. Chem-Pruf fiberglass doors are corrosion resistant to this environment and are backed with a lifetime warranty against failure due to corrosion.

A few examples of Pulp & Paper Industries:

  • Paper Mills
  • Pulp Processing Plants
  • Paperboard Mills
  • Container Manufacturing
  • Paper Recycling
  • Lumber Treatment
  • Textile Mills

Water & Wastewater

Many Water facilities such as sewage facilities and water supply facilities are faced with extreme corrosion every single day. Raw sewage being a source of hydrogen sulfide is a major producer of the sulfuric acid that causes corrosion of metallic components. Steel and other similar materials are especially susceptible to this form of corrosion. Chem-Pruf fiberglass doors have been installed in this type of environment for years. They constantly come into contact with chlorine and other harsh chemicals and can be found in excellent condition year after year.

A few examples of Water and Wastewater include:

  • Water Supply Facilities
  • Waste Recycling
  • Sewage Treatment Facilites
  • Oder Control Facilites
  • Sludge Dewatering Facilities
  • Hydroelectric Plants

Zoos, Parks & Recreation

Zoos, parks and recreational facilities such as theme parks, water parks, aquariums, and pools are all areas that have a vast volume of traffic. Doors in many of these applications are exposed to moisture, corrosive chemicals and animal waste which cause premature failure to steel doors. Many of the same design criteria that are utilized in food processing facilities apply to Zoos, making Chem-Pruf an excellent choice.
