best wall material for bar/club


Hey
long time reader, first time poster

I am doing some renos for a busy club and need some material to put up on the wall that has to be pretty much bulletproof. Drywall and paint just dont cut it. Currently theres particle board with melamine finish to it but its ugly as sin. I was thinking of putting up vinyl tiles or something on top of the melamine but its a little pricey.

Any ideas?

thanks

You are limiting this to 'cheaper than peal and stick tiles' ?

Corrugated steel barn siding? How cheap?

The best and most cost effective way of doing this is with USG FIBEROCK Aqua-Tough interior panels. I'm not talking the underlayment here. 5/8" will be very tough. You can double layer it and it will be pretty much bulletproof. Alternately you can use FIBEROCK Abuse-Resistant Panels. Use Durabond setting joint compound for first coat and Trim-Tex (I-beam) Corner beads. You can use DIAMOND Brand plaster if you need additional indentation resistance. But this stuff is pretty dent resistant as is.

Not sure if it's relevant to your decision making process, but keep in mind that any materials that you put on the wall in a club (I'm going to assume we're talking nightclub/assembly use group) would need to pass a vertical flame spread test. Just because something sounds like it would be a good idea, doesn't make it so. Remember the Station Nightclub Fire in Rhode Island? Just food for thought.
