CleanCote® Guardian™ is a composite panel for interior use made by laminating an aluminum skin to a substrate of type-x exterior grade gypsum board. This system is designed for use as an interior cladding on walls in cleanroom type applications. However, Guardian™ is ideal for other applications where an easily maintained surface and a durable panel are the primary concerns.

Guardian™ is installed using moldings with a nearly flat profile to reduce the possibility of dust accumulations.

CleanCote® Guardian™ offers a non-progressive attachment system utilizing two piece (plastic receiver and an aluminum cover) extruded moldings.

First, the receiver is fastened to the studs and then covered with the edge of the panel. The panels are then mechanically fastened to the studs around the perimeter and adhered in the field of the panel using construction adhesive.  After an approved sealant is applied, the joint is completed using aluminum snap-on covers.

Our interior line of panels is available in either smooth or textured finishes in both aluminum and plastic (depending upon which product is specified).

The plastic skins are available in both textured and smooth FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) and HDPE (High Density Polyethylene).

The standard color is white for all interior panel systems. Other colors may be available depending on product. Contact inside sales for assistance.
