    Floor-wall interface

    Costing the floor and walls for our 500 sq/ft space - which involves cutting an existing concrete slab to add a centered trench drain on the long axis, pouring a new sloped slab graded to drain, and sealing the new floor. Walls are currently horizontal ~ 8" panels (painted timber?) coming down to the slab, over timber framing with fibreglass bat insulation.

    Wondering what to do for the walls (just a lower eg. 4ft washdown section, up higher the existing vertical paneling can stay, with a coat of good mildew resistant paint) and what type of coving or other interface is recommended between the edges of the new sloped slab and the walls, for a sanitary and watertight seal. I've read threads on covering existing walls with FRP panels (both thin sheet, and pre-laminated to plywood), PVC tongue and groove panels, and even just well painted drywall (for the record, I worked in a brewery with single 6" high quarry tile coving, and then painted drywall, and it is still in perfect shape 5 years later).

    Here's a pic of the existing interior wall paneling.

    Thanks

    I would suggest FRP with thermoplastic rubber cove base glued/epoxied at the floor/wall junction. Smooth, cleanable, durable. Lasts for years and years.

    Prost!

    Your best option is concrete curbs, either finished with tile or epoxy paint, at least a foot tall. This will cover most of your direct spray area during washdown.

    Frp with cove is cheapest, if your inspector allows it. For tile you want dal tile “thin lip cove base” tiles. They have thin, rounded bottom lip so they are considered sanitary when placed directly on the slab. You just grout the tiny gap at the bottom. Four inch aint bad. Six inch gets bit expensive at like $3 a piece. Ut its easy diy stuff.
