Phenolic lockers and phenolic booths are called phenolic because they are manufactured with phenolic panel.
If there is a building material that can be associated with a particular type of building that is phenolic panel and its massive use in sports facilities.
We discover it every day, with their vivid, flashy and so recognizable colours in toilets, showers and locker rooms, swimming pools, gyms, spas and resorts, courts and sport centres. It is the material of which changing rooms,phenolic benches, phenolic lockers and phenolic booths that are used daily by millions of people across the world.
Why is phenolic panel used? What advantages does it offer?
Without going into great technical considerations, we use the name phenolic panels or compact phenolic panels (also known as phenolic boards) for plates consisting of a core made with resin and high-density, thermosetting cellulose fibres. Over this compact core, different materials of various finishes are used. These include laminates, wood panes, etc.
The success of this material resides in some of its properties. One of the main features of sports equipment and furniture made of phenolic panel, such as phenolic booths and phenolic lockers manufactured by Spigocompac, the Spigogroup phenolic furniture division, is its high resistance to moisture, making it ideal in environments such as swimming pools, gyms, spas and any other sports facility with humid environments. In addition phenolic panel has the uniqueness that it is not porous and is therefore very suitable for making furniture that, for reasons of hygiene, needs to be easy to clean and disinfect, and is not subject to parasites
Another key feature of phenolic panel is its toughness and resistance. Furniture made with phenolic panel, such as the phenolic booths and phenolic lockers, offers significant mechanical rigidity, is non-corrosive, rot-proof and very resistant to bending, impacts, scratches and chemical products. This is one of the reasons why phenolic furniture is recommended, cabins phenolic and phenolic lockers in educational, cultural and health centres, shopping and leisure centres, and any other building that has a massive and continuous influx of visitors.
In addition, phenolic boards have good conductivity, low formaldehyde content, dimensional and thermal stability and, from a safety point of view, very good reaction to fire (B-s2, d0).
