Case Study: FRP is the Answer for a Wisconsin Cheese Factory

0909-Roth-KaseCheeseBuilding-Main0909-Roth-KaseCheeseBuilding-DetailStrongwell’s DURASHIELD® foam-core structural panels were used to help a cheese-making factory comply with USDA sanitation standards. Switzerland-based Roth-Käse, an award winning cheese manufacturer, used DURASHIELD® panels for walls in its U.S. location in Southern Wisconsin. As part of a renovation project at the factory, 1” DURASHIELD® panels were used to create interior walls and a ceiling. Three-inch panels were used for the exterior walls.

Product: FRP Walls and Ceiling
Process: Pultrusion
Materials: DURASHIELD® Foam core building panels

  • 1" x 12" x 10' panels
  • 3" x 24" x 10' panels
For: Roth-Käse, USA

The foam-core panels were chosen because they are lightweight and can easily be removed for cleaning and moving equipment within the factory. The panels were also quick and easy to install, eliminating the need for insulation, paneling or painting.

The result of the building project allowed the factory to quickly and easily comply with USDA’s sanitation standards. Mark Bechen, project manager for Roth-Käse, USA, commented that he was “very satisfied” with the “nice and clean” fiberglass solution.
