SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Aug. 22, 2016

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Aug. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Leading wall and ceiling panel manufacturers, Nudo Products (headquartered in Springfield, IL) and its sister company, Marlite, Inc. (headquartered in Dover, OH), have introduced the ultimate in wall protection systems to combat damaged and unsafe surfaces in today's healthcare spaces. Allure and Induro FRP decorative wall panels are the simplest, most affordable way of applying laminate to walls. With virtually zero replacement/repair costs, the life cycle expenditures of Allure and Induro FRP are a fraction of the cost of painted drywall and flat rigid plastic panels.

Nudo Allure is a decorative wall panel with a recycled composite core sandwiched between two aluminum sheets and topped with a layer of high-pressure laminate or prefinished veneer face. The well-balanced panel is moisture-proof and offers outstanding impact, scratch and stain resistant properties that outperform painted drywall and rigid plastic panels.

Marlite's Induro FRP decorative wall panel is an exceptionally wear resistant panel created through an exclusive process where impregnated surfacing materials are thermally bonded directly to a fiberglass core. Induro FRP is superior to painted drywall and rigid plastic panels in impact, scratch and stain resistance.

To create a complete wall protection system, both Allure and Induro FRP wall panels are supplemented with complementary designer trims, hand rails, corner guards and wall guards that provide added durability and enhanced convenience. The hand rails, corner guards, and wall guards are offered in both PVC and non-PVC material.

Few walls are subjected to more potential abuse than vertical surfaces in healthcare. Carts, beds and mobile medical equipment are just a few of the potential wall hazards creating problems for hospitals, senior living facilities and clinics. Painted drywall and rigid plastic panels simply fail to withstand the constant barrage of damaging impact, scratches and stains common in semi-critical and critical care spaces. Damaged walls are not only unsightly, but they also increase the risk of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) and cost thousands of dollars to repair/replace and repaint.

The development of the Induro FRP and Allure wall protection systems is a true testament to both Nudo and Marlite's commitment to providing wall and ceiling products that deliver on performance and aesthetics for the healthcare industry. To learn more, please visit and
