The PVC Alternative to Wood
Light, strong, easy-to-install, clean, durable, economical and versatile are the structural and performance advantages of AP PVC Planking. With the cost of lumber and labor steadily rising, constructing and maintaining livestock confinement facilities of wood is simply not cost effective. An ideal material for all confinement purposes, from farrowing to finishing, AP’s PVC Planking is available in formats for all confinement applications including penning, gating and inner dividing walls.
Versatile and cost effective, PVC plank can be adapted to replace conventional building materials in many livestock confinement applications. PVC is corrosion free and power-wash friendly for easy maintenance.
AP’s 1-3/4″ x 32″ PVC wall panel is typically used in the construction of walls or ceilings in farrowing and nuresery buildings. Since there are fewer seams than conventional PVC walls, clean up is quicker. Tongue and groove construction provides added strength and speeds construction.
Two-piece wall and ceiling channels install quickly and hold panels securely in place.
For additional strength, or an attach point for gate brackets, 2 x 4 lumber can be installed anywhere in the panel.
AP’s PVC Planking can be easily adapted for a variety of uses including actuated ventilation applications.
Each plank profile has a full line of stainless steel and PVC accessories to install and support every application. These include:
Stainless steel posts
Drop rod ends
Corners (7/8″ only)
