10 GOOD REASONS TO USE GLASS FIBER WALLCOVERING

Even though glass fiber wallcovering has been specified worldwide for nearly 50 years, it is making a strong comeback in North America due to its sustainable characteristics. Surprisingly, many professionals aren’t fully aware of all of the amazing benefits this product offers.
.
Here are 10 good reasons why glass fiber wallcovering is the perfect solution.

.

1. BEAUTY THAT’S MORE THAN SKIN DEEP.

Combine the versatility of paint with the strength and benefits of woven glass fiber. Beneath the surface, glass fiber wallcovering reinforces the substrate. To top it off, color choices and finishes are unlimited.

.

2. IDEAL FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION.

In new installations, glass fiber wallcovering is the sensible beginning for any wall.
.

3. NEW LIFE FOR OLD WALLS.

Rehabilitates the wall. It bridges joints and cracks, smooths rough surfaces, and can be installed over wood paneling, drywall, block walls, textured surfaces with minor preparation.
.
.

4. EASY TO INSTALL.

Can be installed by any experienced painting and wallcovering professional. Standard tools and minimum preparation of the surface are all that is needed. Prepare walls for strip ability.
.
.

5. MAINTENANCE FRIENDLY.

Easy to maintain. Scrub-able, easy to patch and when it is time to redecorate, repaint do not replace. Can be repainted more than 8 to 10 times and retain the texture.

6. BEATS FIRE STANDARDS.

Will not burn. Better than Class A Fire Rated.
.
.
.

7. TOXICITY – A SUBJECT OF CONCERN.

Passes Oeko Tex Confidence in Textiles – for no harmful substances. Clean Air absorbs formaldehydes. Mold-X resist mold and mildew. Meets LEED v4.
.
.

8. ALLOWS THE WALL TO BREATHE.

A wall that is dry is a mildew free wall. Tests show glass fiber wallcovering to be 9 times more permeable than vinyl wallcoverings. Paint selection defines the performance.
.
.

9. AVAILABLE FROM STOCK.

Available from stock in North America to ship anywhere in the world. Quick turnaround on back-orders.
.
.

10. ECONOMICAL.

Low waste and easy installation/painting saves money up front. The extended life cycle turns future capital expenditures for wallcoverings into a maintenance cost.
.
.

Roos International offers two different brands of glass fiber wallcovering in North America, Novelio and Texturglas.
