Chem-Pruf fiberglass FDA/USDA door systems are perfect for applications that must endure repeated washdowns and rigorous cleanings with corrosive compounds such as acids, disinfectants, cleaning solutions, spermicides and scaling acid and bleach. Chem-Pruf’s FDA/USDA accepted doors also comply with NIH Standards and when desired are available with up to 90 minute UL label for fire rating.
Door Panel - The FDA/USDA doors are 1-3/4” thick and are manufactured using a specifically tailored resin that resists contaminants typically found in food processing applications. The seamless construction eliminates crevices, gaps, seams and other areas where potential bacteria buildup can occur.
Gelcoat – The surface of an FRP door is the most visible and in many ways the most important element in the defense against corrosion. Chem-Pruf’s 25 mil of resin-rich gelcoat is molded into every product creating a door that will never rust, corrode, nor need to be painted. Plus, its clean, beautiful appearance will remain year after year.
Plates - Measuring 0.125 inch thick and weighing 1.0 Ib/ft², Chem-Pruf door plates are by far the strongest in the industry. The plates are hand laid and integrally molded in one continuous piece using high quality resins tailored to the specific environment. Not only are these plates impervious to corrosive attack, they provide outstanding protection against impact caused by high wind debris.
Monolithic Stile and Rail – The plates and core bond to a one-piece cast in-place stile and rail system, forming a continuous seamless solid edge with no mitered corners, so no dirt, bacteria or moisture can penetrate.
Core – For superior strength and durability, the interior core is filled with a Polypropylene Honeycomb with a non-woven polyester veil. Other cores are available if required for the application.
Bonding - Chem-Pruf has developed a proprietary bonding resin system to fuse the plates to the collar and core, creating one homogeneous, engineered structure that ensures the strongest interface possible. In this manner, there will be no separation or delamination – GUARANTEED.
Optional Window - Many window options are available including our patented pharmaceutical window that is completely sealed with no mechanical fasteners or ledges to harbor bacteria or standing water. Plus the window and window retainer match the FRP door in color and finish with 25 mil of resin-rich gelcoat integrally molded in.
Optional Accessories - Chem-Pruf fiberglass reinforced door accessories are designed and manufactured to complement all Chem-Pruf FRP doors and frames. FRP thresholds, astragals, and sweeps are also available in matching colors to complete protection against corrosive environments.
Optional Hardware – The world’s finest, corrosion resistant fiberglass door system would not be complete without high quality stainless steel hardware. Chem-Pruf maintains an inventory of top quality hardware from the country’s leading manufacturers. Our highly skilled and trained personnel can install the hardware of your choice for a turnkey door system that is ready to be hung at the jobsite.
