It’s no secret that indoor growing facilities are demanding environments — they’re high-humidity rooms that are extremely susceptible to mold and mildew growth from constant moisture and organic, plant-based matter. Choosing bright, antimicrobial wall and ceiling panels that are durable enough to stand the test of time is key to maximizing flower yield and the productivity and lifetime of a facility’s operations.
A Hygienic FRP Alternative for Indoor Grow Rooms
FRP has historically been the go-to wall and ceiling material for indoor grow rooms for many reasons: The plastic is cleanable, its bright white finish helps with lighting, and the waterproof capabilities are designed to handle moisture and humidity in a way drywall can’t.
The problem with FRP is the panel seams are penetrable. Over time, moisture can cause the plastic to separate from its substrate. Moisture then seeps behind the panel, and the cellulose-based substrate becomes a vector for mold and mildew. If this happens, the only way to fix the problem is to remove the FRP and reinstall it. Not only is this a massive headache and hassle, but it also affects product yield and production schedules.
With Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard, you get all of FRP’s upside for grow rooms with none of the down. The PVC-based wall and ceiling panels are antimicrobial, highly reflective, completely impervious to water and moisture, easy to clean, and designed to outlast the buildings they’re installed in.
High Light Reflectivity
Lighting has a significant impact on your canopy growth, so it’s important to invest in reflective materials. Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard panels are bright white and have a high light reflectivity (LR) value of 0.88, meaning that Trusscore panels will reflect 88% of the light that strikes them. This maximizes the light in your space and decreases the total amount of electricity consumed over time.
Moisture & Water Resistant
Humidity is a problem for more than FRP. When combined with harsh chemicals in the air, humidity will eat away at materials like metal, steel, FRP, plywood, OSB, and epoxy paint. Made from PVC, Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard panels are 100% water resistant — they’re designed to shed water and are installed in a way that creates a water-resistant barrier. When you build with Trusscore, your walls and ceilings will outlive the spaces they’re installed in.
Antimicrobial & Easy to Clean
Keeping your facility free of mold and mildew is critical for safety, yield, and profitability. The smooth, non-porous finish of Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard provides complete protection resulting in zero growth of mold or bacteria, per third-party testing (ISO 846:2019). Trusscore panels can also handle repeated pressure washing and won’t be harmed by detergent or chemical cleaners.
Lightweight & Easy to Install
When setting up a commercial grow room, you don't want to spend a ton of time installing wall and ceiling cladding. Doing so will only eat into your overall return on investment. With Trusscore Wall&CeilingBoard, installation will be over before you know it. The lightweight panels have a tongue and groove interlocking system and pre-punched screw flange so they can be installed faster than FRP with fewer people. They also can be applied directly over existing FRP, drywall, or bare studs, and no backer is required.

Trusscore Customer Story
Anam Rahman, Co-Founder of Maison Verte
“Trusscore products fulfilled a lot of criteria. It was white, so it helped with the reflectivity. We're dealing with seedlings or microgreens in an artificial environment, and we really needed to maximize any reflection we can get. And then the other thing is like is that we're dealing in such a compact space. There's high humidity from the soil. It can get messy and dirty and we wanted something that was anti-microbial, something that we can easily wipe and wash down and keep everything sanitized.”
