Why Buy Wainscoting?
We asked wall padding expert (30+ years in the industry) and owner of Coaches CoZrner,Sonny Greenhalgh:
"In my opinion, I feel that wainscot wall panels consisting of 1-3/8" trocellen filler are a far better product for wall protection in the wrestling room than 2" Polyurethane.
Most HS Gymnasiums have wall panels of 2" Polyurethane because most Athletic Directors do not understand that 1-3/8" trocellen has better shock absorption than 2" polyurethane. Their logic is that 2" foam is better than 1-3/8" foam, but this is not true.
A true test of this is to (using your fist) punch both a 2" polyurethane panel and a 1-3/8" trocellen panel. You will feel your fist bottom out (hit the plywood back board) on the 2" polyurethane while same force struck by the fist on the 1-3/8" trocellen is still being absorbed.
One more point, the 1-3/8" trocellen panels are easier to install (lighter weight) and easier to install cutouts and corners (panel is less thickness). I have been installing wainscot wall panels for well over 30 years, and have hundreds of wall matting installations to my credit."
Our panels use a durable 18oz vinyl fabric and cross-link polyethylene foam core that is made to last for many years.
