MAXIMUM DURABILITY, ENDLESS STYLE: Formica® Brand HardStop Decorative Protection Panels are an excellent solution for high-performance wall panels. HardStop™ blends ease of installation and impact resistance with a full range of design selections that coordinate perfectly with other Formica® Brand Laminates.
